Why Should I Get a PRP Facial?

Category: Blog

A PRP Facial is done by using a small hand held device that contains tiny micro-needles. These repeatedly puncture the skin creating tiny channels in the skin.  PRP is used during and immediately after the procedure.  Numbing cream is used before the procedure.  The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is made from the patient’s own blood.

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP is blood plasma with concentrated platelets.  The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration.

PRP microneedling is ideal for the treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, lax skin, sun damage, large pores and uneven skin texture.  It can be performed on either the face or body and is suitable for all skin types and color.

After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned .  For most people the skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks, and you will continue to see improvement over this time.

The best results are obtained with three sessions about a month apart.  After that, you can get repeat treatments as needed.
