Introduction to PRP for Facial Rejuvenation
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for facial rejuvenation is a minimally-invasive procedure that’s been gaining traction for over a decade. The procedure uses your own active growth factors to trigger collagen and elastin production that our bodies start to deplete in our mid-20s. Treatments are quick, easy, and generally pain-free.
Who Is Suitable?
Men and women with mild to moderate signs of aging or complexion issues may benefit from PRP treatments. Treatments are ideal for patients seeking to improve the overall tone and texture of their skin sans surgery. PRP for facial rejuvenation can address;
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne Scars & Stretchmarks
- Skin Laxity
- Poor Skin Texture
PRP treatments are safe and effective for nearly all skin types, tones, and colors. During your personal consultation, our fully trained surgeon will help determine if PRP is right for you.
The Procedure & Risks
PRP for facial rejuvenation is done in a simple 3-step process. First, our aesthetician will draw blood quickly and safely. They’ll then process your blood to separate active growth factors, stem cells, and white blood cells for a powerful skin-healthy serum. Lastly, the PRP serum will be reinjected into problem areas. Fine lines and wrinkles will be plumped, volume can be added to cheeks or under-eye areas, and overall skin tone can be improved.
There is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP injections. Because PRP uses your own growth factors to stimulate collagen production, side effects are minimal compared to synthetic fillers. You can expect some minor redness, swelling, or even bruising at the injection site. Most side effects should dissipate quickly and last no more than several days.
Results & Recovery
Results from PRP for facial rejuvenation are gradual and continuous. The majority of patients start to see noticeable results in 3-4 weeks with an optimal outcome around 6-weeks. Collagen production is stimulated up to 18-months post-treatment. Regular bi-annual treatments can improve your skin’s overall health and leave you looking younger, happier, and well-rested for the long haul.
Downtime is minimal, and there are little to no post-treatment restrictions with PRP for facial rejuvenation. PRP treatments are often considered a ‘lunchtime’ procedure because most patients opt to go back to their normal routine immediately after their appointment.
