Legal Analysis on the PRP Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has been broadly used in several medical fields as a treatment, including orthopedic, urology and sports-related injuries. During the past few years, however, the beauty industry has also started using PRP injection to patients, claiming that it could repair and rejuvenate the skin. Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare has thus issued several orders stating that it remains unclear as to whether PRP has the efficacy to restore the youth. While doctors use PRP for its positive effects on its outcomes, little is known about how PRP works or how best to use it. Therefore, the benefits of PRP therapy and recommendations still require more evidence from clinical trials.
