6 Skin Complaints PRP Treatment May Help

6 Skin Complaints PRP Treatment May Help

From acne to sun damage, there are many concerns that can be addressed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. If you’re looking for a treatment option that addresses more than one condition, PRP may provide a significant improvement in multiple areas at once. 

At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, Dr. Surinder Sandhu provides PRP treatment plus microneedling as a way to improve the appearance of your skin and address various skin conditions, as well as treat hair loss.

6 complaints addressed by PRP therapy 

With PRP therapy, an accessible and effective solution for many different skin conditions is finally an option. Here are six problems that platelet-rich plasma might solve. 

1. Sun damage 

Even the most diligent sunscreen wearers will still suffer from UV exposure over time, and sun damage can come in many forms. If you’ve noticed hyperpigmentation or other signs of photoaging, it might be time to double up on sunscreen and add PRP treatments to your skincare routine. 

2. Under-eye circles

You might have dark circles under your eyes naturally, or they can be caused by a nocturnal lifestyle or lack of sleep. Dark eye circles are also naturally caused by aging as the eyelids begin to lose tautness and start to droop. By stimulating your eyelid skin and drawing blood to the surface with PRP, we can brighten dark circles.

3. Acne

Anyone with acne can attest to how difficult it is to manage at its worst. If changing your pillowcase and following a balanced skincare routine isn’t cutting it, try PRP therapy. Since the “product” being applied is made of your own blood components, it’s a completely personalized treatment. 

4. Enlarged pores

If your pores are too large, they’ll absorb more dirt and oil, leaving you unhappy with your skin, even with a freshly cleaned face. Since enlarged pores tend to get clogged more easily, they can cause acne. By using microneedling to deliver the platelet-rich plasma, a PRP facial can tighten the skin and shrink the pores. 

5. Uneven skin texture and tone

If you’ve found that your skin is often too dry or too oily, or that you’re getting rough spots on the skin surface, you might benefit from the healing effects of PRP therapy. Nothing heals your own body better than a treatment derived from its own regenerative powers, including growth factors attracted by PRP to the site of your damaged skin.

6. Hair loss

Hair loss might not be thought of as a skin problem, but the follicles in the skin of your scalp can be treated with PRP using microneedles to get it beneath the surface and encourage hair regrowth. Dr. Sandhu can discuss your hair loss with you and help you decide if microneedling with PRP is right for you.
