Promotes collagen production, regenerates tissue, and tightens skin
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy—more commonly known as PRP—is on the cutting edge of regenerative therapies and is quickly becoming one of our favorite anti-aging treatments.
PRP initially gained recognition for being used to treat pain and accelerate healing in injured tissue and joints. Many professional athletes have been benefitting for years from PRP, and it wasn’t long before dermatologists starting using this therapy to turn back the hands of time and bring back that youthful glow. PRP utilizes your own body’s healing ability to stimulate skin recovery and boost collagen production—what’s better than that?
PRP can treat anything from fine lines and sun damage to deep wrinkles and acne scarring. It requires a simple blood draw from the arm and uses a centrifuge to separate the platelets into platelet rich plasma. Here at Manhattan Dermatology we use PRP as a topical treatment in conjunction with Microneedling, for a more aggressive approach with Halo, ProFractional, and Fraxel DUAL skin resurfacing. We’ve seen some amazing results!
