13 Benefits of PRP

PRP has many benefits when injected into the skin. As a natural wound healer, PRP stimulates collagen production by releasing many skin rejuvenating chemicals and substances.

13 Benefits of PRP

13 benefits of PRP - lucky for some


PRP first appeared in scientific papers in the 1950s as a poorly understood by-product of blood. Often discarded as waste.


Since then, the understanding of platelets and plasma has grown tremendously.


It was not until 2010 that PRP became established and more published in the field of aesthetics.


Some of the benefits of PRP are listed below. The evidence for some of these claims, however, remains controversial.


Safe


Platelets are an entirely natural and safe product relative to other treatments.


Natural


PRP is derived from blood and is 100% free of synthetic additives.


Speeds and accelerates healing


Platelets are the natural healers of the skin and tissues.


No risk of allergy


Some injections used in aesthetics contain additives, stabilisers or preservatives that can trigger allergic reactions. PRP has none.


Regenerates the skin


PRP harnesses the growth factors of platelets to stimulate new skin growth and healing. 


Increases collagen production


Platelet contains growth factors that stimulate cells called fibroblast to produce collagen.


Reduce procedure downtime


The use of PRP increases the recovery time after aesthetic procedures. In effect, PRP is the quintessential biological plaster.


Low infection


The risk of infection is extremely low, partly due to the antibacterial effects of PRP. Any breach of the skin, however, is a risk. And the same sterile and aseptic precautions are needed as with any injection.


Does not form granuloma or nodules


Granulomas and nodules are risks following injection of a foreign substance such as dermal filler into the skin. Felt as lumps and bumps, these can be very difficult to remove. The risk from PRP is virtually zero.


Completely absorbed over time with no trace.


The tissues completely absorb PRP over time. Unlike dermal fillers, which can last for years and potentially forever, even when they appear to have gone.


It can be administered in lots of ways


PRP is very versatile and can be administered on the skin's surface, just under or deep.


Few reported cases of vascular occlusion


Unlike dermal fillers, there have only been 7 cases of blood vessels being blocked by PRP. Compared to around 100 cases with dermal fillers. An event that is underreported.


It can act as a biological filler


PRP can act as the most natural and regenerative filler, slowly releasing growth factors over a prolonged period of time. As a result, both the amounts of collagen and hyaluronic acid are increased.
