The development of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, sagging skin near the jawline and a less than brilliant glow are all-natural changes as the body ages. Whether these conditions are the result of exterior factors, genetics or time patients often feel that when they start noticing these facial details, the exterior doesn’t quite match with how youthful they feel inside. While there are numerous products on the market for revitalizing skin, options such as creams, peels, and serums tend to be surface-level specific solutions that may not lead to the satisfactory results you envisioned.
When you’re looking to regain a healthy, bright and naturally youthful look, it’s necessary to go below the surface for complete rejuvenation. One of the more popular and exceedingly successful routes to achieving this is through the PRP Facial.
The PRP Facial is an innovative and natural approach to retaining youthful, healthy and vibrant facial skin. The procedure can be carried out in the comfort of an attending physician’s office in just four simple steps making it both convenient and time-efficient.
Treatment begins with drawing the patient’s blood and separating out the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in a centrifuge. PRP is credited with helping to promote the growth of stem cells and tissue, making them the ideal factor in a rejuvenating facial treatment. Next, the physician will use a microneedling device over a specified treatment area to create small puncture marks. These punctures also provoke the body to naturally increase collagen production which leads to firmer and smoother skin over time. PRP cells are then gently brushed over the face, covering all of the microneedling punctures where it can be pushed and absorbed into the skin. Patients can rinse this application off approximately 12-24 hours after the facial has been completed.
The PRP Facial is generally a 60-minute procedure with patients reporting noticeable positive results within the first few months following treatment. While this procedure comes with minimal to almost no downtime, it is recommended that a gentle face cleanser be used for 24 hours following treatment along with a moisturizer with SPF and serum. It is also advisable for patients to wait at least one week before resuming their regular skincare routine.
