Topical steroid damaged face (TSDF) is an entity caused by unsupervised and prolonged use of topical corticosteroids (TC) on the face. There is currently no definite treatment that can partially or completely reverse the changes seen in the facial skin in TSDF. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a biological product that is obtained from autologous centrifuged blood and it contains multiple growth factors for the skin and other body tissues. PRP has been employed as a treatment option in patients with steroid induced rosacea. We hereby report the results from 34 cases of TSDF who had been treated with PRP at our institute. Retrospective analysis of the data and digital photographs of these cases was carried out in October 2021 and the data analysis revealed a significant therapeutic benefit in most of the cases with excellent results in 76% (26/34) cases. Improvement was noticed after the first session only in majority of cases and in all the clinical parameters in the study patients. No adverse effects were reported in any patient in this series.
