Usage of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in aesthetic medicine is a new concept in dermatology and cosmetic medicine.
Platelet-rich plasma is injected by multiple tiny punctures under the dermis, with topical local anesthesia.
When PRP is injected into the damaged area, it stimulates the tissue, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result, new collagen begins to develop. As this collagen matures, it begins to shrink and tightens and strengthens the skin. Improvement in skin texture and tone is noticeable within 3 weeks. Full collagen regeneration requires 3 months. The PRP treatments can be used on all skin types and tones.
