Platelet rich plasma is often a procedure not many people have heard of until they undergo it. Especially when having a cosmetic PRP procedure, patients want to know more about the lasting effects and may ask a question similar to “Does PRP last forever?”
To answer this question is not exactly straightforward, but the general consensus is no. However, this does not mean that PRP treatments do not have lasting effects or that they are not worth it. In most cases, platelet rich plasma procedures slow down a process, whether it be hair loss or aging. The hair or collagen restored via platelet rich plasma will probably eventually be lost to the natural processes that caused the condition in the first place. However, occasional touch up appointments can remedy this.
In medical uses, PRP can help speed up the healing of an injury or wound. Obviously, this does not last forever, but it may lessen and minimize scarring, which is a lasting benefit of PRP treatment. It is important to analyze your goals and determine if PRP is the right treatment for you.
