Platelet Rich PlasmaPRP Injections

Is PRP Better Than Botox?

Platelet rich plasma and Botox injections both serve as possible cosmetic injection options. They can often complement each other and patients may be interested in understanding what exactly each does to determine which may best work for them. Let’s look at the commonly asked question, “Is PRP better than Botox?”

The answer to this question is not as straightforward as yes or no. The reason for this is that they generally serve different purposes. Botox targets facial muscles to help reduce dynamic wrinkles on the skin. PRP acts similarly to filler. When injected, it helps stimulate a collagen response to naturally fill in and disguise wrinkles.

PRP may provide some semblance of permanent results while Botox may help permanently reduce wrinkles with regular use. Therefore, one is not really better than the other. If wanting to address static wrinkles and skin quality, platelet rich plasma is likely the best treatment. However, if you want to reduce wrinkles in the long term and dynamic wrinkles like frown lines, Botox is likely the best choice.
