PRP is a platelet rich treatment that involves using a patient’s own plasma to improve stretch marks, acne scars, fine lines and general skin healing. Platelets are known to release growth factors and promote tissue regeneration. One of the advantages of PRP is that it is uses the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, thus minimizing the risks of allergic or other reactions. PRP is a safe treatment option for tear troughs, the hollowness under the eyes, which has been very beneficial in the experience of our clinic. Tear troughs are a difficult area to treat with any approach, and other treatments are limited in benefit. PRP gives us a new, safe and effective treatment option especially when used in combination with Fractora.
Acne scars and stretch marks are equally challenging conditions. While no treatment can eliminate scars completely, PRP in combination with Airgent™/EnerJet, Fractora, CO2,or Fraxel® can significantly improve the scars. With a multifaceted approach, patients typically notice improvement after the first treatment and continue to improve over the next 2-3 sessions, spaced 6-12 weeks apart.
