Our bodies have a remarkable capacity for healing and rejuvenation. However, as we age, those natural healing processes slowly lose their efficiency and effectiveness, which is one reason we see an increasing amount of imperfections in our skin as the years pass. Luckily, there is a safe and painless way to jumpstart and stimulate our internal repair systems in a way that can return a more youthful, healthier look to our faces: Platelet-Rich Plasma Facials (PRP).
Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood, but they are also enriched with growth and healing factors that will initiate repair and provide assistance to stem cells in damaged muscle, tendon, ligaments, and skin. A PRP facial takes that natural process and essentially turbocharges it by using the beneficial elements of a patient’s own blood to counteract the signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance to the skin.
A PRP facial typically takes between 15 and 45 minutes to complete, and is performed under local anesthetic, which numbs the injection site to minimize pain. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure.
During the PRP facial procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and placed in a processing unit to separate the platelets, white blood cells, and serum from the red blood cells. The platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells are then placed in a centrifuge and concentrated. The platelet-rich plasma produced is loaded into a sterile micro-needle instrument. These tiny needles make microscopic punctures in the skin to deliver the PRP directly into targeted areas to maximize absorption.
This therapy is effective at fighting fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring. After one to three treatments, patients can expect to notice a restored and revitalized complexion.
