Do PRP Injections Work For Wrinkles?

Wrinkles form due to loss of collagen as well as slowed production of new collagen and elastin. Of course, outside factors such as sun damage, smoking, and free radicals can also contribute by prematurely breaking down collagen. Thus, wrinkle treatments often consist of adding or stimulating collagen production, such as with microneedling. Since PRP helps stimulate healing, do PRP injections work for wrinkles?

Injections of platelet rich plasma can help reduce the look of wrinkles. However, unlike traditional dermal fillers, it does not disguise the wrinkles. It takes time and multiple rounds of injections to stimulate enough collagen to plump a wrinkle. Patients can also help supplement PRP injections with topical PRP treatments such as microneedling with PRP.

Common injection areas when using PRP to treat wrinkles can include the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. If you have pronounced wrinkles or major sagging, another treatment may need to be performed first such as a facelift or laser resurfacing.

Does PRP Get Rid Of Wrinkles?

Platelet rich plasma can be injected to stimulate collagen production such as for filling hollows under the eyes. The most common cosmetic uses of platelet rich plasma surround hair restoration and skin rejuvenation. However, more injectable forms of PRP are becoming available and popular. “Does PRP get rid of wrinkles?”

The reason platelet rich plasma is effective for under eye enhancement is because the skin under the eyes is among the thinnest skin on the face. Therefore, the difference is more noticeable. In areas elsewhere on the face, it can take many more sessions to make a difference. However, that does not mean that it cannot be effective.

Another area where many get PRP injections is the nasolabial folds. Also called the smile lines, this area can be difficult to fill because major blood vessels run near the area. PRP comes from blood and therefore if injected into a blood vessel, does not cause a blockage or damage (though it can be painful and may cause more bruising). 

In some patients, PRP can help get rid of wrinkles around the face. However, it does not work as quickly or effectively as traditional dermal fillers in all areas. If you have allergies to filler or are concerned about the risk, PRP may be a good option. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112.

PRP For Facial Wrinkles: The Best Treatments

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections, PRP Skin Care

Facial wrinkles are a common concern for patients who seek out esthetic treatments. Wrinkles are also one of the first signs of aging evident on the face. At PRP In Seattle, we have many skincare options that can improve the appearance of wrinkles. What the options for PRP for facial wrinkles?

Firstly, microneedling with PRP is a procedure that combines collagen induction therapy (aka microneedling) and platelet rich plasma. Together these treatments induce your body to create more collagen. This can smooth the look of wrinkles, improve skin quality, and lead to overall younger looking skin. 

Secondly, our zombie laser peel combines a chemical peel with PRP and lasers for the ultimate skin rejuvenation. The zombie laser peel has many benefits including the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It is less invasive than a surgical laser treatment and is the perfect treatment to prevent and treat the onset of wrinkles. 

Finally, depending on the location of your wrinkles, PRP for facial wrinkles may be treated with injections. PRP for tear troughs can treat tired eyes which can make the face look younger and treat wrinkles under the eyes. 

Platelet rich plasma therapies and treatments are versatile and can address many signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online
