Am I a candidate for PRP Injections?
PRP injections can be safely performed on all skin types and all skin colors. Melanocytes in the basal area are left intact. There is minimal risk of pigment change or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. PRP can treat sensitive and fragile areas that are difficult to treat with other procedures. These areas include the eyes, the neck, and the back of the hands. However, PRP injections are not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months; have open wounds, cuts, or abrasions on the skin; have had radiation treatment to the skin within the last year; have any kind of current skin infection, systemic health condition, or herpes simplex in the area to be treated; are pregnant or breast feeding; or have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.
