The Evolving Role of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Plastic Surgery

January 5, 2021 Tags:


Over the last four years, there has been a 25% increase in the use of Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) for cosmetic procedures. The natural growth factors found in PRP now serve many different purposes for patients. From skin rejuvenation to hair regrowth to fat grafting to laser treatments, procedures that incorporate PRP are highly sought after. For those interested in non-surgical skin treatments, microneedling plus PRP is a great option to boost collagen, tighten the skin, and treat acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Another option for treating acne scarring is PRP plus laser treatments, which also help to reduce any inflammation caused by lasers. PRP is also very common in hair regrowth treatments since it boosts hair follicle growth for both men and women. Lastly, for those looking for more dramatic changes, ask your plastic surgeon about PRP with fat grafting. This procedure involves transferring a patient’s unwanted body fat to the face to enhance skin contours and improve volume.
