Damaged Skin

Evidence that PRP removes photo damaged skin has been clinically proven multiple times. In some clinical trials, aPRP (activated platelet rich plasma) increased the expressions the MMP-1 and MMP-3 protein. What are the MMP proteins? MMP stands for Matrix Metalproteinas proteins, which are heavily involved in the aging process by degrading collagen and other extracellular matrix proteins (ECM). Thus, as aPRP increases the expression of the MMP proteins, the activated platelets can cause the remodeling of the ECM by removing photo-damaged components; stimulating the synthesis of new collagen
