PRP Facial Rejuvenation
WHAT IS IT?
PRP stands for "Platelet Rich Plasma," and is a method of rejuvenating the skin using your blood’s plasma. This plasma is what already gives your skin a youthful look, and by adding additional plasma to the face you can see noticeable results in just a few visits. PRP for facial rejuvenation smooths out the skin and brings back its natural-looking plumpness by using the parts of the blood that stimulate the cells and encourage growth.
PRP facials can be used to:
- Add volume to your face
- Fight wrinkles around the forehead
- Eliminate puffy eyes
- Smooth out facial wrinkles like crow’s feet
- Enhance facial treatments you’re already using
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Unlike dermal fillers, which are made of solid materials and are used as a replacement for your skin’s natural collagen, PRP uses your body’s own plasma to encourage collagen growth and replace old skin cells with brand new ones.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
The first step to rejuvenating your face with PRP is to get your blood drawn. The drawn blood is then put into a centrifuge and the plasma is separated and removed. The plasma is injected back into your face at specific points.
The process can be completed in about an hour and features no downtime or recovery process, which makes PRP ideal to fit in your busy schedule. There may be some soreness, swelling or redness at the injection sites, but these symptoms are mild and wear off within an hour or two.
PRP results are best seen after multiple treatments. Initial results are seen in as little as one month after treatment.
