Have you ever noticed in detail the way a minor cut heals? It’s quite remarkable, really. As long as you keep the area clean and temporarily bandaged, within a few days, new skin begins growing over the wound and before you know it, the cut is a distant memory. The body is designed to naturally heal itself. The same concept applies to Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments.
Facial aging presents a challenging problem for plastic and aesthetic surgeons; it is a multi factorial, multistep process that involves structural and volumetric changes in the skin, muscles, skeleton, and adipose tissue. Facial tissue descent is caused not only by gravity, but also by the reabsorption and repositioning of the facial adipose system. Facial rejuvenation with autologous fat has the advantage of replacing or augmenting tissue with like tissue. Autologous fat transplantation to the face can correct cosmetic defects that are caused by loss of subcutaneous tissue, such as atrophy of the face due to significant weight loss, wrinkles and facial involution due to aging.
