PRP Therapy skin rejuvenation

Finally, PRP is a promising therapy for the aesthetic improvement of the skin. If you suffer from acne scars or otherwise bumpy, uneven skin, PRP may be able to rejuvenate your skin and restore its smoothness and elasticity. This is achieved mainly through microneedle therapy, which uses a device with a tiny needle much like a tattoo machine to penetrate the skin and drive the PRP to a deeper level, allowing it to heal the damaged skin from within. Microneedling is also used in the cosmetic surgery field to inject collagen into the face, but PRP therapy takes the concept a step further, inducing the skin to heal itself.

One major study that supports the use of PRP for the improvement of skin aesthetics was published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery in 2014. Thirty patients with significant facial acne scarring were treated with PRP micro needling procedures. Of these 30, 23 experienced improvements in the appearance of their scars, and seven had “excellent” results.

Another 2014 study from Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology found that PRP can be equally useful as an accompaniment to other cosmetic skin treatments, such as laser resurfacing.

These treatments can cause skin irritation and come with long recovery time. The study looked at patients with acne scars who had undergone laser resurfacing treatments, some of whom had also been treated with PRP and some who hadn’t.

The results clearly showed that the patients who received PRP treatment in addition to laser resurfacing were significantly better off, with less scarring, fewer side effects and faster healing time than those who received only the laser treatment.
