Face and neck revitalisation with PRP is an application that is currently being explored in many clinical studies with very promising outcomes.
There is wide clinical evidence that supports the regeneration and rejuvenation of tissue through the application of PRP.
Below you will find the results and conclusion of two articles published in journals on PRP skin rejuvenation.

Dae Hun Kim, M.D., Young Jin Je, M.S., Chang Deok Kim, Ph.D., Young Ho Lee, M.D.,1 Young Joon Seo, M.D.,Jeung Hoon Lee, M.D., and Young Lee, M.D.
Results:Platelet numbers in PRP increased to 9.4-fold over baseline values. aPRP and aPPP both stimulated cell proliferation, with peak proliferation occurring in cells grown in 5% aPRP. Levels of PIP were highest in cells grown in the presence of 5% aPRP. Additionally, aPRP and aPPP increased the expression of type I collagen, MMP-1 protein, and mRNA in human dermal fibroblasts.
Conclusion: aPRP and aPPP promote tissue remodelling in aged skin and may be used as adjuvant treatment to lasers for skin rejuvenation in cosmetic dermatology.
2 Evaluation of Effects of Platelet-Rich Plasma on Human Facial skin.
Drs: Yuksel EP1, Sahin G, Aydin F, Senturk N, Turanli AY.
Results: There was statistically significant difference regarding the general appearance, skin firmness-sagging and wrinkle state according to the grading scale of the patients before and after three PRP applications. Whereas there was only statistically significant difference for the skin firmness-sagging according to the assessment of the dermatologists.
Conclusion: PRP application could be considered as an effective procedure for facial skin rejuvenation.
