What Is a PRP Facial?
Looking for flawless skin that looks like it’s glowing from within? Forget chemical peels or surgical procedures – a PRP Facial can help you get the beautiful skin you want without a prolonged recovery period. Best of all, a PRP Facial can help minimize some of your biggest complexion concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
But what exactly is a PRP Facial, and what can you expect from this non-surgical procedure?
First, lets break down the acronym. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma; platelets are primarily responsible for clotting your blood when you’re bleeding. When combined with growth-activating serums, platelets can help speed up collagen production, increase cellular turnover, and help reveal younger-looking skin. The PRP serum is introduced to the treatment area via micro-needling techniques, which helps deliver the serum to the deepest levels of the dermis for maximum results.
The PRP Facial is a highly effective procedure that uses the above technique to improve the facial complexion. During the treatment, you’ll have a small amount of blood drawn from the upper arm, cleansed, and added to the growth serum. This concoction will be re-introduced to your facial skin via micro-needling. The whole procedure takes less than an hour, making it a great lunchtime procedure.
Clients should expect mild swelling and redness after their PRP Facial. Results should be seen within the first couple weeks; final results can last for up to a year. You may need more than one PRP Facial to see your best results. The number of procedures you’ll need will be determined during your consultation.
