What Is A PRP Facial?
A PRP Facial is an innovative treatment that uses the power of your blood’s platelets to unlock your youngest skin ever. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it’s a unique compound that triggers more collagen production within the treatment area. With this facial, the platelet-rich plasma is delivered via microneedling treatments, which helps the solution reach deeper layers of the dermis for more impact. A PRP Facial doesn’t involve any surgery or downtime, so it’s a great treatment for candidates who want younger skin without going through surgery or more intense facial procedures.
How Does It Work?
A PRP Facial takes about an hour to perform and begins with the withdrawal of a few teaspoons of blood from the upper arm region. The blood is prepared and placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets. These platelets are added to a special formula that activates their growth factors. The serum is added to a microneedling device and quickly injected into the treatment site. Overall, the PRP Facial is designed to increase long-term collagen production, all while encouraging a more radiant and clear complexion.
Is It Painful?*
The PRP Facial involves needles, so some patients may find it uncomfortable. That’s why your Derma Tech specialist can use ice or a numbing cream to make the procedure a lot more comfortable for you. Side effects can include skin sensitivity, redness, and minor swelling, so you’ll need to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from UVA/UVB rays. Results should be visible within the first month. You may need more than one PRP Facial treatment to see your ideal results; your Derma Tech specialist can work with you to determine how many sessions you might need.
Am I a Good Candidate for a PRP Facial?
You’re a good candidate for a PRP Facial if you’re beginning to show signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. The PRP Facial can even help candidates who have scars from past traumas or acne breakouts.
