In the field of cosmetic skin treatments, we have two very interesting trends occurring at the same time. Medical researchers, equipped with decades upon decades of knowledge, are learning more about a wide variety of conditions and developing new treatments and products at an astounding rate. At the same time, patients appear to have a rising interest in keeping their lifestyles (healthcare included) as natural as possible, wanting to know what they’re putting into their bodies and being hesitant about chemically complex products.
These two trends would seem to work against each other, but that’s not necessarily true. In some cases, medical researchers are actually finding new ways to harness some of the benefits of natural materials. These types of methods are perfect for patients who are looking for the latest cutting-edge treatments as well as those who prefer natural options. In aesthetics, platelet rich plasma (or PRP) may be the most impressive example of this. Our dermatologists and physician assistants at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA) were among the first to begin using this innovative procedure nearly twenty years ago, and are happy to give you the lowdown.
Whether your cosmetic goal is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize hair loss, treat acne scars, or restore a more youthful facial volume, PRP can be the ideal way to use your body’s own resources to get a result that both looks natural and is natural. To discuss how PRP may be able to help you, schedule a platelet rich plasma consultation at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
