Are you looking for a quick refresher for your face? A PRP facial may be just what you need, because it uses the body’s natural healing power to rejuvenate the skin and minimize signs of aging. But how does a PRP facial work?
How Does A PRP Facial Work?
A PRP facial is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy with microneedling. PRP is a type of regenerative medicine that has been used extensively in orthopedic medicine to heal damaged tissue and ligaments.
When used on the face, PRP stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These skin components plump and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The PRP facial starts with a small sample of blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is then put in a centrifuge and spun at high speed to isolate the PRP serum needed for the facial. The PRP is then injected into the skin or applied using a microneedling device. Once the PRP is applied to the face, the growth factors in the plasma start to rejuvenate the skin, and stimulate new collagen.
Combining PRP with microneedling enhances the collagen-boosting benefits of the treatment because microneedling also rebuilds collagen.
A PRP facial takes approximately 30-60 minutes and requires about 2-7 days of downtime.
What Results Can You Expect?
A PRP facial makes the skin smoother and tighter, and reduces scars and enlarged pores. It also improves skin tone and texture. The results can be seen about 2 weeks after treatment.
