What Can PRP Be Used For?

When it comes to the most powerful and effective skincare treatments, very few things come close to PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy.

PRP is a concentration of platelets derived from a patient’s own blood. Here’s how it works: PRP is injected into the damaged areas of the skin, and the growth factors present in the platelets soon get to work renewing the skin cells. 

The tissue regeneration process results in smoother, tighter skin, and fewer wrinkles. The effects start to appear about two weeks after treatment and typically last for a year or more.

Let’s take a closer look at what PRP therapy can be used for!

3 Things PRP Can Be Used to Treat

1. It can treat dark circles underneath the eyes.

If you have dark circles that don’t seem to go away even with a good night’s sleep, then PRP treatments can help. Platelets can help encourage cellular turnover as well as break down the melanin that causes dark undereye circles, meaning you’ll look more refreshed and rejuvenated after a series of PRP treatments.

2. PRP treatments can fade acne scarring.

If you have scars from past acne breakouts, PRP treatments can help speed up the scar-healing process. That’s because, when combined with microneedling treatments, PRP therapy can help speed up cellular turnover, which is key to fading pigmented acne scarring. With regular PRP treatments, you can get the clear complexion you’ve always wanted!

3. It can add midfacial volume.

Have you noticed that your cheeks are starting to lose their apple-like appearance? If that’s the case, PRP treatments can help you get that pivotal midfacial volume back. This effect can help achieve the most natural results possible, as truly youthful-looking faces usually have apple-like cheeks, as well as some volume around the temples.
