25 Nov PRP Improves Aging Skin
Evidence Based Study
By Gilbert Amgar, Christian Bonnet, Alain Butnaru
and Fabienne Herault-BardinABSTRACT
Autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) plays an important role in soft tissue healing. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of this facial skin treatment through objective parameters. Biometric parameters, including anisotropy, transepidermal water loss (TEWL), micro-relief, and hydration were used to determine the relative success of the treatment.The study, which included 37 female patients, demonstrated an average of 24% improvement in the anisotropy coefficient after the third week. The TEWL and micro-relief parameters also improved significantly (P < 0.05 in all parameters tested). In addition to these results, this study suggests that certain measured values may be used to predict the success of the aesthetic use of PRP.This is an excellent evidence based study by Dr. Gilbert Amgar, a friend from Paris and aesthetic physician who specializes in “self rejuvenation” utilizing cellular PRP therapy. We are finally getting much needed objective studies to verify what we have been saying and doing with Bio-Facial skin rejuvenation since 2007.

The best way to evaluate a patient is to arrange a personal, in-depth consultation. However, this is impossible for many patients who fly in from other parts of the country or world. For this reason we have developed the remote consultation package, which is an acceptable alternative to the in-person personal consult.
Once your photos and questionnaire are reviewed, we will telephone you to discuss your questions or concerns regarding the procedure. You will also be given a suggested treatment plan and the costs involved. Click here for more complete information on our free on-line hair restoration consultation process.
