What are PRP Facials?
A PRP facial uses your platelets and blood plasma on your face. The process starts with drawing your blood just as it is done when getting routine blood work. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge, allowing for the separation of natural growth factors and proteins. The natural proteins in your PRP are slathered onto your face and then micro-needled into the skin during a short procedure. Once the plasma is in, it begins to do its work of rejuvenating your entire face, tightening wrinkled areas, fixing blemishes, and smoothing the overall look. It’s able to do that because PRP’s essential chemical components stimulate collagen growth.
Some people opt to have just one facial while others undergo a regular series of procedures. The more often you have a PRP facial, the longer the results of each treatment will last.
What are the key advantages of PRP facials, and why are they so popular?
They truly transform the look of your skin in positive ways. Pain and discomfort are minimal after the topical numbing product is applied, and the procedure is short.
What Are the Benefits of PRP treatment for the face?
- IT PROVIDES TOTAL REJUVENATION
PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production, which thickens and tightens thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines. Because it boosts collagen, it’s also an excellent treatment for improving overall skin texture and tone. It’s particularly useful for people who suffer from rosacea or acne.
- IT TREATS DELICATE AND DIFFICULT TO REACH AREAS
PRP is beneficial for treating challenging to treat areas, such as the delicate under-eye area where clients often notice ageing signs first but where no laser can be used.
- IT’S A NATURAL TYPE OF COSMETIC INJECTABLE
PRP uses your natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. The treatment works by drawing a small sample of your blood, spun in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
- IT’S SAFE
Because it uses your natural elements, PRP is very safe. It’s also not a new treatment. It’s long been recognized and used in the hospital system and sports medicine for its useful wound healing properties since the 1970s.
- RESULTS ARE LONG-LASTING
PRP results take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting up to 12 months after an initial series of three treatments.
