Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is all the rage thanks to Kim Kardashian and other notable online influencers. From reviving dull and tired skin to softening fine lines and wrinkles and smoothing skin texture, PRP is a breakthrough for total facial rejuvenation.
How PRP works
Platelet rich plasma is a natural product from your own body that can refresh and renew your skin, reverse sun damage, and improve the appearance of scars and under eye circles. As a natural alternative to Botox and fillers, PRP stimulates your own immune system to improve the quality of your skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy involves a facial that uses your own blood to promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. The procedure begins with an initial blood draw—a small amount of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. As this platelet rich plasma is injected into specific areas of the skin, it stimulates collagen regeneration and helps restore your body’s natural collagen.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive, full-face treatment. During each session, a special microneedling roller with very fine needles is rolled over the face. This process pricks the top layers of skin with very tiny micro-wounds, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
After microneedling, PRP is applied directly to the micro-wounds to boost the effects and speed healing. With a high concentration of growth factors, PRP promotes soft tissue regeneration. Over the next few weeks, your face will look refreshed and renewed as your wrinkles are diminished and your skin texture is noticeably improved.
Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
While traditional fillers work immediately to plump the skin, the effects wear off over the course of the next 12-18 months. Botox treatments block nerve signals to your facial muscles, reducing facial muscle activity and removing or reducing wrinkles, but results typically wear off after about 6 months.
PRP Therapy stimulates your body’s natural collagen production and continues to work long after your first session for natural, gradual rejuvenation.
