PRP Scar Repair
Traditional methods of scar treatment include steroid injection, laser therapy, or surgical revision. While these methods can be effective, they do not always give the intended improvement in the appearance of the scar, and they require significant downtime for recovery.
The PRP Scar Repair technique works through the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP). This procedure uses your own blood to stimulate your cells to regenerate. The serum is activated with calcium chloride. This mixture contains growth factors used to stimulate uni-potent (native) stem cells, fibroblasts, collagen, and blood vessels. Activated PRP causes tissue repair and has an anti-aging effect. PRP has been used successfully and safely for many years to treat joint injuries in orthopedics and to speed recovery in oral surgery. In the field of plastic surgery, it has been used in healing wounds in burn patients and diabetics who are often prone to non healing sores and wounds. The PRP Scar Repair Procedure requires no downtime and is virtually painless.
The Scar Repair treatment can flatten or eliminate:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
A change should be noticed within 3 weeks, with a full effect in approximately 3 months. Results vary with each individual.
If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, we recommend you schedule a 30 minute consultation with our physician.
