Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) For Wrinkles, Anti-Aging and Scarring
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used as an effective treatment in various surgical and medical fields including gingival regeneration, acceleration of bone fracture healing, and cartilage repair. In recent years, PRP has become of interest in the treatment of neck and face rejuvenation, scar treatment, and hair loss.
In the PRP procedure, a blood sample is collected from the patient using standard blood drawing equipment, and then processed to concentrate the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which is rich in growth factors. This PRP is then injected into the skin. Typically several treatments are performed at monthly intervals for optimal results.
This technique has been show to result in face and neck revitalization and improvement in scarring, including acne scars. PRP is sometimes combined with other treatments, particularly CO2 laser resurfacing.
PRP treatments are a cosmetic procedure and not paid for by insurance. To schedule a consultation for PRP treatments for facial wrinkles and aging, contact your SOMA Skin & Laser dermatologist at 973-7546.
