A PRP facial is a Platelet-Rich-Plasma facial. Through the use of a patient’s own blood, this revitalizing treatment encourages collagen growth and elasticity in skin cells.
This increasingly popular type of facial is huge in the Medical Spa community because it’s great at targeting acne scars, crow’s feet, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and sagging or drooping skin.
In addition to being very effective, many people are fond of the PRP Facial because it’s minimally invasive, and an all-natural treatment.
The PRP Facial Process
What’s involved in the PRP Facial process?
We begin by drawing a very small sample of your blood from your arm, which is then passed through a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood, which removes the red blood cells.
What remains is a highly concentrated mixture of plasma and platelets, and we typically add a small amount of dermal filler.
The platelet count is typically increased by 4 times using this process. The platelets play a very important role because they not only regenerate skin cells but encourage new skin cell growth.
We then cleanse and exfoliate your face, and we apply a skin toner. This is followed by the use of an automated microneedling system, which creates tiny and temporary indentions on your face.
The serum is applied, and the microneedle indentions allow the plasma, platelets, and filler to reach the underlying tissue of your face. While the platelets work on skin cell growth and regeneration, the plasma and filler work to rejuvenate deeply-set wrinkles and skin blemishes.
Finally, the serum is rinsed from your face, and a soothing cream is applied.
The process remains discreet because recovery happens quickly, and since there is no need for anesthesia, you can drive yourself back home or to the office.
Why PRP Facials Work
The PRP facial process is so effective because it influences the face’s skin cells natural response to an injury occurring.
The platelets then stimulate natural healing processes, which encourage new skin cell and collagen growth.
Your skin comes back smoother than before.
