The History of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP has an extensive history of being used in orthopedic medicine, and reconstructive surgery. Now the benefits of PRP are being applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, wound healing, and now even cosmetic facial rejuvenation. It is also being used to help treat some types of sexual dysfunction and bladder leakage. Scientific studies dating back several decades have documented that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin. PRP has revolutionized aesthetic medicine as well as sports medicine. If you want results driven procedures then PRP is right for you.
PRP works best when used in combination with adjunct therapies such as Fillers and Botox
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Voluma , are composed of a gel like material that fills lines and folds. These fillers are indicated to soften deeper lines such as the folds around the mouth area, the nasolabial folds or to plump lips. They usually last from 6-18 months; repeated treatments are required to fill the area again. PRP stimulates your own collagen while flooding the area with the healing protein growth factor for total facial rejuvenation. PRP is used for volumizing the hollowed areas that are beginning to look drawn or to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows , improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use. Juvederm and Voluma can be used with PRP as the two types of treatments are meant for different purposes; they act synergistically with each other to give the best final outcome of a more youthful looking face.
