If you are tired of dealing with unwanted imperfections, then it might be time to consider a PRP Facial. This amazing procedure unlocks your body’s natural healing response with nothing more than the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that is coursing through your veins. A PRP Facial will reduce the appearance of countless blemishes ranging from old acne scars to fine lines on the sides of the mouth. Our team is proud to offer this skin rejuvenation treatment to all those who are ready to look years younger.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
PRP therapy has been used by doctors for years to treat a myriad of health issues. It was originally offered to arthritic patients who were struggling with ongoing joint pain. When injected into a joint, PRP restores some of the tissues that has been damaged. Over time, doctors realized that PRP might be a good option for imperfections as well. When injected into the dermis, this substance stimulates the growth of healthy skin cells, collagen, elastin, and keratin. The nearby imperfects will slowly begin to disappear as the older cells are replaced with fresh cells and healthy proteins.
One of the reasons why the PRP Facial has become so popular is because the procedure only takes a few minutes. Most of these appointments last for about 30 minutes, and there is no downtime following a PRP Facial. The first step in this process is extracting a small sample of blood. The platelet-rich plasma is created by spinning that sample at a very high speed in a centrifuge. Once we have a few doses of PRP, it can then be injected back into your skin.
The Rejuvenation Process
Injecting PRP into the skin is a simple procedure that is usually over in a few minutes. Most patients require multiple injections throughout the face, and we use a very fine needle to ensure maximum comfort. Redness and sensitivity are both common side effects, but they usually are gone within a day or two. Our patients generally have no problem returning back to work and their other daily activities within one day. Depending on your cosmetic goals, we might suggest that you have multiple treatment sessions carried out.
Your Improved Skin
During that time following your treatment, your body will make as much collagen and elastin as possible. Those proteins will restore your skin and minimize the appearance of your blemishes. Each appointment should be scheduled a few weeks apart so that you have ample time to recover.
