Posted By: Aradhna Saxena, M.D. | Published On: Dec 29, 2017 | CIT/PRP
When Lansdale, PA area patients are interested in achieving beautiful skin and turning back the hands of time by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, their dermatologist may suggest a treatment such as PRP. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma therapy and is a great solution for many of our patients seeking natural stimulation of collagen and elastin.
Does PRP therapy work?
Yes! PRP therapy uses the patient’s own plasma, reinjecting it into the skin to improve texture and tone. It may include a variety of different types of growth factors. Growth factors used in PRP include:
- Epidermal growth factor
- Transforming growth factor beta-1
- Fibroblast growth factor
- Vascular endothelial growth factor
- Keratinocyte growth factor
- Platelet derived growth factors
Why choose PRP?
Instead of using manmade materials and ingredients injected into the skin, PRP pulls the patient’s own plasma from a blood draw and reintroduces it into the skin. Not only can this process be used for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, it can be used for improving skin laxity, stretch marks, skin scarring, and even addressing hair loss or hair thinning. PRP can be used in many different ways with a dermatologist, so discussing this and other therapies with Dr. Aradhna Saxena is a great first step in taking charge of your own aging skin and beauty. PRP is often used in conjunction with collagen injection therapy, or CIT, for optimum results. CIT-PRP is administered by our experienced dermatological team for amazing results. Patients just need to schedule a consultation appointment to determine if they are appropriate candidates for treatment.
