Does PRP Get Rid Of Melasma?
Melasma is a skin condition that causes dark patches of skin across the face. It can occur during or after pregnancy or major hormonal changes. Melasma can occur in people of all skin types and tones. Unfortunately, melasma can be difficult to treat, though some people will see it subside eventually. Due to the lack of effective treatments, patients ask, “Does PRP get rid of melasma?”
Platelet rich plasma—either on its own or in combination with other therapies—has shown promising results in treating melasma. While it is not necessarily a cure, PRP has been shown to lighten the dark patches for many patients. Especially when it supplements other treatments such as skin lightening creams, this can make a more significant difference in melasma.
PRP procedures such as microneedling with PRP are safe for most skin types and tones without causing major irritation. It is a good option to help see long term improvement in melasma.
