PRP facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive and autologous treatment that involves using components derived from your body to stimulate healing. The cosmetic provider draws a small sample of your blood, isolates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and injects it into targeted areas on the face. This treatment stimulates natural healing and skin regeneration, making your body heal the targeted areas. PRP facial rejuvenation can improve your overall skin tone and texture.
PRP: encourage your facial skin to heal itself
PRP is a completely safe, autologous treatment
PRP is a completely safe, autologous treatment, i.e., it’s based on components derived from your body. Platelet-rich plasma is a component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors, the components responsible for most of the healing and growth activities in the body. When you’re injured, the growth factors in your blood stimulate blood clot formation, collagen production, and skin cell turnover, thereby healing the wound.
PRP for skin treatment involves using PRPs to catalyze your body’s natural regenerative capabilities. After harvesting and purifying the PRPs, the cosmetic provider injects it into targeted areas on the skin. The growth factors in the PRP stimulate collagen production, increase skin cell regeneration, and facilitate blood circulation. Over time, the skin in the targeted region looks smoother, softer, and more youthful.
PRP facial rejuvenation can correct the following:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Acne scarring
- Acne breakouts
- Other types of scars
- Skin discoloration
- Pigmentation problems
- Uneven skin tone
- Dull and tired skin
- Clogged pores
- Enlarged pores
- Textural irregularities
Boost the PRP results with microneedling
You can boost the results of PRP facial rejuvenation with microneedling, one of the most effective collagen induction therapies. Microneedling is a simple procedure that involves using specialized devices to make thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface. Your body reacts to these micro-injuries by stimulating collagen production. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers, making your facial skin look smoother, firmer, and more youthful.
Microneedling can be performed individually. And PRP facial rejuvenation can also be performed individually. But if we combine microneedling with PRP, you can expect even better results. The microneedling treatment leaves your skin extremely receptive to new products and serums. After the microneedling session, the cosmetic provider applies the harvested and purified PRP serum on your facial skin, thereby catalyzing the facial rejuvenation results.
Benefits of PRP facial treatments:
- No incisions or scars
- Completely safe treatment
- Autologous treatment based on natural components
- No risk of infections or allergies
- Improves overall skin tone and texture
- Works with microneedling treatments
- No harsh side effects or complications
- No post-treatment downtime
The 3-step PRP facial rejuvenation process
PRP facial rejuvenation is performed as a simple 3-step process after a thorough consultation with our medical providers. Our cosmetic providers will carefully analyze your skin quality to ensure you’re the right candidate before proceeding with the treatment. The entire procedure concludes within 30 minutes, and it can be modified with microneedling.
Step 1: Harvest
The cosmetic provider harvests a small sample of your blood from your arm via a syringe.
Step 2: Purify
The blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas (PRPs).
Step 3: Inject
The PRP is carefully injected into targeted facial tissues using ultrafine needles.
Minimal post-treatment side effects and recovery
PRP facial rejuvenation doesn’t involve harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild redness, swelling, discomfort, irritation, or bruising around the injection points, but these side effects are common for all injectable treatments. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after the treatment — there’s no downtime.
Cumulative results over several weeks and months
PRP facial rejuvenation produces cumulative results over several sessions. The results will gradually improve over several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers and skin cells. Your facial skin will gradually improve. Most patients opt for 3 to 4 PRP sessions spaced a month or two apart.
