Similar to PRP Injections , PRP Facials use Platelet-Rich Plasma but instead of being localized to one part of the face, the PRP is micro-needled into the surface of the entire face.
Like any other PRP treatment, a certified phlebotomist collects a sample of the patient’s own blood. It is then centrifuged to separate the red blood cells from the platelets. Before any needling treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to aid in comfort.
The treatment uses 12 very small stainless steel needles, run smoothly along the surface of the face. These tiny needles create microchannels in the skin so that the PRP can saturate the entire face. The PRP starts the body’s own activation of collagen and elastin regeneration allowing the skin to tighten and firm.
For optimal results, we recommend a series of 4 to 6 treatments. Each treatment must be spaced a minimum of one month apart. Once the desired results have been achieved, it is best to have maintenance treatments 2 to 4 times per year. The results are permanent because the body is rejuvenating itself. However, as the skin continues to age and is exposed to environmental stressors, follow up treatments are required.
