Do you wish that you could turn back the hands of time to look younger and healthier? You can by visiting us at Amazingly Ageless Medi-Spa. One of our premier services will rejuvenate your skin, improving tone, texture, and appearance. A PRP facial is an excellent treatment to consider.
What Is a PRP Facial?
PRP, the acronym for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment. Because it is analogous, healing comes from within the body. When first discovered, medical professionals used PRP to promote healing following cosmetic and oral surgery. Thanks to further research and testing, experts found that this same plasma regenerates skin tissue. For different areas of the face, a PRP facial works by restoring damaged tissue back to health.
Along with the production of collagen, blood flow decreases with age. Eventually, wrinkles around the mouth and eyes become more prominent, skin looks translucent, and once-tight skin begins to sag. With a PRP facial, blood taken from your body repairs skin cells. As a result, the body starts to heal and signs of aging decrease.
Although there are multiple benefits of having a PRP facial, one is the fact that it promotes the production of collagen, which helps tighten the skin and give it fullness. Besides that, this procedure helps eliminate lines and wrinkles, repairs damage caused by the sun, and removes dark circles beneath the eyes. Even acne scarring diminishes with a PRP facial.
How Does a PRP Facial Work?
Also referred to as a “Vampire Facelift,” the procedure starts with a small vial of blood taken from your body that is laced in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. Adding an activation agent to stimulate the platelets ensures that they will not travel beyond the treated area once injected. That allows healing to take place on a specific part of the face.
A PRP facial takes about 45 minutes. Depending on the type and severity of the problem, the doctor can spend that time focusing on just one area or several. Although it takes roughly three treatments spread out over six to eight weeks to see optimal results, you will notice improvement with only one procedure.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Because a PRP facial is minimally invasive and involves your blood, there are no risks. As it is an injectable treatment, you might experience slight soreness, swelling, and bruising at the treated site, but that would go away in a day.
Unlike some injectables, you will never have an allergic reaction to a PRP facial since the treatment uses blood plasma containing high levels of platelets and growth factors from your body. Immediately following a facial, you can return to your regular activities.
Who Makes a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for a PRP facial are people in good health and with no severe skin conditions. Also, since the doctor injects only a small amount of blood into the target area, this treatment works best for individuals with localized problems. If scarring, lines and wrinkles, and other imperfections cover a significant part of the face, we will offer a full facial skin resurfacing treatment as opposed to a PRP facial.
