What is the PRP Facial?
The PRP Facial uses a combination of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Microneedling to hasten the production of elastin, collagen, and new blood vessels. PRP has growth factors that are essential for proper healing. This will make your face appear younger and more refreshed, as your old tissues make way for new ones.
Those who dull skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scarring can all benefit from the PRP Facial. The facial helps anyone reverse aging skin, giving a natural, youthful appearance.
How Does the PRP Facial Work?
The PRP Facial is performed in two stages:
- PRP Collection and Separation
- Microneedling with PRP
During the first stage, our staff will draw a small amount of blood (about 2 tablespoons). PRP is extracted and separated via a centrifuge. This is all done in the clinic. Some call PRP “liquid gold” not only for its appearance, but by its growth and healing capabilities.
During the second stage, the PRP is gently applied on the face. This is followed by a microneedling device which creates minute puncture wounds in the skin. This process promotes collagen production, while making it possible for the PRP to sink deeper into your skin to ensure optimal growth.
The entire treatment takes about an hour to perform. There’s minimal discomfort associated with the procedure; many patients compare it to feeling a piece of sandpaper being moved across the skin.
Is the PRP Facial Safe?
This is a simple, non-surgical procedure that is safe under the right training. Our doctor has undergone extensive certification training with years of medical experience to bring this procedure to our patients.
Does the PRP Facial Hurt?
There is very little discomfort in this procedure. Some liken it to the feeling of light sandpaper across the face. The facial takes about an hour, and afterwards, you can jump back into your day with little downtime. It is important that you wear sunscreen after your treatment, as like a vampire, you will be very sensitive to sunlight.
What Results Can I Expect?
You can expect to see results within one to two months. The result? Smoother and more rejuvenated skin! One treatment can last several months, however many patients undergo multiple treatments to extend the “ageless” process.
