Apart from the treatment of medical symptoms and conditions mentioned previously, PRP has been extended to alleviate pain symptoms and mechanical injuries caused by several other factors. Over the course of time, the treatment is also used for athletes to help them recover from sport injuries. Other popular clinical applications include:
PRP treatment works wonders in combating the effects of aging skin. As one grows old, the dermal components start to wither- drastically changing the skin texture. These include skin thinning, wrinkles and age spots. PRP treatment can be extended to reverse the aging effects by providing the skin a healthy dose of platelets that speed up cell division within the skin.
In modern dermatology, PRP treatment holds the cure to a number of skin-related diseases such as acne, scarring and alopecia (mostly in women). The rich and concentrated platelets solution rejuvenates the skin. In addition, it tightens the skin around the eyes and several other areas (such as jaw line, neck, cheeks and mid-face, knees, upper arms and elbows) to cure post-pregnancy skin lax.
Improving the Skin Tone.
In several cosmetic procedures, PRP solution is injected under the dermis with local anesthesia. The solution then stimulates the tissues around the damaged area that trigger the healing process. As a result, new collagen is formed and, when matured, strengthens the skin. This leads to an overall improvement in the skin tone within 3 weeks of the treatment.
