Platelet Rich Plasma

Safe and Natural PRP Facial Rejuvenation: The Key to Youthful Aesthetics

PRP facial rejuvenation, also known as "vampire facials," has become a highly sought-after anti-aging treatment. This procedure harnesses the power of your own blood to stimulate collagen production and activate growth factors, resulting in younger, smoother, and healthier-looking skin. When introduced into the skin, PRP improves texture, reduces wrinkles, and promotes the growth of new collagen.

Moreover, PRP isn't limited to just facial rejuvenation. It has also proven to be effective in hair restoration and sports medicine, where it aids in treating injuries.

But how does PRP work? Our blood consists of plasma, red and white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets play a crucial role in blood clotting and produce growth factor proteins necessary for healing. By utilizing platelets from your own blood, PRP facial rejuvenation helps renew and heal your skin. These growth factors are vital for maintaining plump, youthful skin full of elastin.

The beauty of PRP facial rejuvenation lies in its versatility. It is suitable for almost anyone, regardless of gender, skin type, or age. Whether you're just beginning your anti-aging journey or seeking to maintain and enhance your skin before a special occasion, PRP facials are an excellent option.

Frequently Asked

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a injectable treatment that utilizes the power of a person's own blood. Platelets play a crucial role in tissue healing and the growth of new cells. By promoting collagen production and regenerating skin tissue, PRP rejuvenates your cells and revitalizes your skin. The release of growth factors accelerates the healing process, resulting in softer fine lines, tighter skin, and improved tone and texture.

How is PRP administered?

PRP treatment involves drawing a fraction of blood from the patient and collecting it in a syringe. This blood is then spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected into the skin or micro-needled back into the skin.

How long does a PRP treatment take?

A typical PRP treatment takes around one to two hours to complete. The duration depends on whether the PRP is administered through injections only or if micro-needling is also involved. This timeframe includes the additional 30 minutes required for blood collection and centrifugation, as well as the application of topical numbing cream.

Do PRP injections hurt?

While undergoing PRP injections, some patients may experience mild discomfort, such as a burning or tingling sensation. However, this sensation typically subsides within a few minutes after the PRP is injected. To ensure our patients' comfort, we apply topical numbing cream and provide ice to alleviate any discomfort throughout the entire PRP treatment.

When will I see results from a PRP treatment?

Patients usually notice a tightening effect and a more even skin tone within a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to improve for up to six months following the treatment.

How long do the results of PRP injections last?

The results of PRP injections can last for weeks after treatment. However, individual results may vary depending on the quality of the Platelet Rich Plasma and the patient's lifestyle. While we cannot stop the aging process, we can slow it down. Proper at-home skincare maintenance can help extend the results of PRP injections.

What areas can be treated with PRP injections?

Technically, PRP can be used to treat any area of the body. However, for cosmetic purposes, PRP is most commonly used to treat the face and neck.

Is there any downtime associated with PRP?

There is no downtime associated with PRP injections. However, it is normal to experience redness in the treated area, which typically lasts from one to 24 hours. Some patients may also experience mild swelling. For this reason, some patients prefer to schedule their PRP treatment towards the end of the week, allowing them to recover over the weekend. The healing time varies from patient to patient and may be longer if PRP injections are combined with micro-needling.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

While results can be seen after a single treatment, the exact number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. In general, 2-3 treatments are recommended, but some individuals may require more.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with PRP injections?

PRP injections for aesthetic procedures are generally safe for most individuals. There are very few contraindications for PRP injections, and the most common side effects include mild to moderate swelling and redness.

Who is not a candidate for PRP injections?

During your consultation, a thorough assessment will be conducted to determine if you are a suitable candidate for PRP injections. Patients with certain health conditions may not be eligible for PRP injections, and pregnant patients are also not candidates for this treatment.
