Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a proven procedure with good predictability to reduce appearance of:
· Sagging or dropping face – a sign of aging related to volume loss
· Dark circle or tired looking eyes
· Wrinkles and sagging jowls along the mouth and jawline
· Nasolabial folds or “laugh lines” on the corners of the mouth.
These areas improve with the injection of autologous PRP intradermally or subdermally below the affected areas. By mixing the PRP with calcium chloride, we are actually injecting a Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM). This delivers more viable, under-granulated growth-factor-loaded platelets. Combining PRFM with plasma filler gives a softer, more flexible outlook compared to the rigid puffy structure obtained through synthetic fibers.
I have done this around my lips with success. I have more fullness again and the static wrinkles which I dislike so much are softened. PRP improves over time so the area will continue to improve over the next few weeks.
