CAN YOU TREAT FACIAL WRINKLES WITH YOUR OWN PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
- Posted on: Nov 10 2015
Platelet-rich plasma is A PATIENT’S OWN blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets by centrifugation. The rejuvenating plasma is a concentrated source of platelets. The PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that rejuvenate skin wrinkles.
There are several areas of skin around the eyes and mouth that respond to PRP to regenerate skin collagen content and tone. The periorbital crows’ feet and lower eye lid infraorbital hollow have very thin skin and is best treated with plasma injection. Also the upper and lower lip lines are a good site for direct injection into the skin. The plasma can be injected into the facial wrinkle lines.
The treatment is a simple blood draw done in the office by a plastic surgeon and requires 4-6 visits. Please call our office for further information regarding rejuvenating plasma injections to correct fine lines of the face at 239-348-4357 or visit our website www.naples-csc.com.
