Hope to minimize your facial lines and wrinkles? If you don’t want surgery, you’ve got other options.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facials, also known as ‘Vampire Facials’ combine plasma and platelets from your blood with other rejuvenation techniques triggering collagen production. PRP facials help tighten, smooth and improve skin tones.
Here’s what you need to know:
A small sample of your blood is drawn
It’s then spun in a centrifuge to extract protein-rich plasma. Next, your platelets are extracted and is a concentrated sample used during your PRP facial
PRP stimulates collagen production, improves skin health and elasticity, even skin tone and radiance, smoothes wrinkles and fine lines
What happens during treatment?
Plasma is applied to your face and then will use microneedling across your cheeks and forehead to help your face absorb the plasma.
Microneedling is a procedure that creates tiny, punctures using sterile needles.
* Both PRP and microneedling stimulate collagen growth and are more effective when done together. With PRP two layers are targeted: beneath the skin and surface of your skin.
Once the facial is over, a hyaluronic acid serum will be applied to your skin to help soothe any redness and irritation. Inflammation is a common side effect immediately after the procedure and will clear within four to give days. You may notice some redness and minor irritation, but you’ll want to avoid applying too many products to your skin. Simply cleanse and moisturize your skin twice a day. During your recovery you want to avoid sun exposure and harsh skin treatments during this time. Until your skin has completely healed, avoid rigorous activities that might excessive sweating and heat production (ex. running, heavy workout, etc).
This usually should be avoided for at least 72 hours after your treatment.
When will you see results?
As your skin recovers you will notice immediate results of tighten, smoother skin and a more even complexion. After you finish your first course of treatment, you’ll need to follow up once a year for potential maintenance.
