Struggling with sun damage, premature wrinkles or uneven skin tone?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical treatment that can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.
Used alone or in combination with other facial rejuvenation treatments, this powerhouse treatment is exceptional for treating tone, texture, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss and elasticity loss.
But what is platelet rich plasma? And why does it work? We're here to answer these important questions and more. Let's get started!
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment?
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment (PRP), often called the vampire facial, combines two elements: plasma, which is the liquid portion of your blood, and platelets, the blood cells that that are integral to your body’s natural healing process.
PRP is a rejuvenating treatment that uses your own blood cells to amplify your body’s natural ability to heal.
The blood which is taken from the client is first purified and then platelet-rich plasma is extracted from it. This PRP is then injected or deposited into channels of the skin.
PRP can effectively reduce wrinkles, plump skin, improve tone and texture and diminish acne scars.
How Does PRP Work?
A small amount of blood is drawn by a certified phlebotomist and placed in a high powered centrifuge.
This nutrient rich serum is then deposited deep into tiny micro channels created by your treatment choice, reaching the skin’s dermal layer, stimulating the growth connective fibers which tighten the skin, decrease pore size, add volume and produce an over all rejuvenating effect with long lasting results!
What Are the Benefits of PRP Treatment?
PRP is the most healing substance your body produces! When deposited into the channels created by resurfacing sessions, it dramatically boosts results. PRP treatments are exceptional for treating tone, texture, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss and elasticity loss.
What Treatments Is PRP Combined With?
PRP is used as a stand-alone treatment or combined with other treatments to amplify results.
This is a relatively painless process, but comfort levels vary depending on which resurfacing service you are combining it with.
How Often Should I Get PRP Treatment?
Ideally, we typically recommend between 3 to 4 PRP treatments spaced one month apart to achieve optimal results. After that, maintenance PRP treatments are recommended about 2-3 times per year.
Who is a Good Candidate for a PRP Treatment?
One of the best benefits of a PRP Treatment is that almost anyone is an excellent candidate! Since you are using your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction because it is native to your body.
PRP Treatment is effective in treating acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dryness and loss of elasticity.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy can work wonders on the skin and can help maximize the benefits of other facial rejuvenation techniques.
This advanced skincare treatment harnesses your body's own natural power to heal itself and produces long-lasting results.
