What are PRP facials?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it’s used for a variety of purposes in the medical field. Platelets are naturally occurring substances in the body which aid in the healing process any time your body is injured.
Platelets can be used to encourage healing and awaken cells, which can rejuvenate the body in many cases. Modern medical techniques allow us to isolate platelets from a person’s blood and then inject them into a problem area. This is known as a PRP injection, and it’s a proven form of regenerative medicine, meaning it helps the body to heal itself.
PRP injections are especially useful when dealing with facial issues because they can encourage cell growth and the production of collagen, which corrects many common facial blemishes.
Am I a candidate for PRP facials?
If you have issues such as wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, and/or loose skin on the face, then you could potentially benefit from PRP facial injections. This process is safe and effective for many people, and our team can discuss the entire procedure in detail and help answer questions before getting started.
What happens during PRP facials?
The first step in the PRP injection process is to draw blood from the patient. We then put the blood in a centrifuge, which spins it at a high rate of speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood cells.
By isolating the platelets, we are using our own body’s healing properties to address these issues rather than injecting outside chemicals. This triggers a natural healing response in the problem area, signaling cells to begin repair work and even waking up cells that were contributing to the problem.
Some patients are concerned with the injection process, but it is less painful than you might think. The numbing lotion is applied before the injections, and the needles used are very small so the overall level of pain is kept to a minimum.
What can I expect following PRP facials?
Any pain as a result of the process should quickly subside, and results will become more apparent in the days and weeks following the procedure. Depending on your situation, our team might recommend a series of PRP facials to achieve the desired outcome.
