The human body has an impressive ability to fix, heal, and rejuvenate itself. That said, time takes its toll on these natural healing capabilities, just as it does with so many other aspects of our health and appearance. Fortunately, advancements in science and medicine have provided a safe, painless, and minimally invasive way to harness and stimulate the body’s healing processes. At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, we have used Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facials with tremendous success to improve the tone, texture, and look of our patients’ faces, reversing the effects of aging and restoring skin to a more youthful appearance.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
The clotting cells of our blood, platelets also contain potent healing and growth and factors that initiate repairs and aid stem cells in damaged tissue, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin. A PRP facial treatment takes that natural process and essentially turbocharges it using the beneficial elements of a patient’s own blood. This treatment is effective at fighting fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring.
What Is Involved In a PRP Facial?
During a PRP facial treatment, we draw a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm and place it in a processing unit that separates the platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells from the red blood cells. We then deposit the serum in a centrifuge and to concentrate and make it suitable for use. Once concentrated, we place the platelet-rich plasma into a sterile, micro-needle instrument that makes microscopic punctures in the skin to deliver the PRP directly into targeted areas to maximize absorption.
A PRP facial typically takes between 15 and 45 minutes to complete, and we perform it using a local anesthetic which numbs the injection site to minimize pain. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. After one to three treatments, patients can expect to notice a restored and revitalized complexion.
