Melasma PRP Treatment
Melasma is a common skin problem. It causes brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin, and above their upper lip. It also can appear on other parts of the body that get lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck.
Women are far more likely than men to get melasma. It is so common during pregnancy that some people call it the mask of pregnancy. Hormones seem to trigger melasma.
Stress and thyroid disease have also been postulated to be causes of melasma.
Melasma and deep hyper-pigmentation unresponsive to traditional medical treatments is not uncommon. Until recently there was no viable treatment option for those affected with this condition.
In clinical studies, PRP (platelet Rich Plasma) injections into the skin for melasma and other deep pigment disorders have shown up to 90% reduction in pigmentation after a series of three treatments.
Excellent results with PRP dermal injections have been seen on people with melasma and hyper-pigmentation resistant to traditional treatments. PRP is a product of your blood, it is natural, free of side effects and has the additional advantages of improving skin texture, wrinkles, scars and firmness.
Each treatment session takes between 30 to 45 minutes, without any downtime and the best of it is that it can be done even in summer.
