About PRP Facial Rejuvenation
A PRP facial, also known as a vampire facial, has recently grown in popularity. With so much attention from the media, people have been wondering what makes a PRP facial stand out from other treatments. This is largely due to the impressive outcomes that are helping so many men and women maintain beautiful skin.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets and plasma are both components of the blood.
Platelets are tiny blood cells that assist your body when it heals. Platelets help to clot and allow the body to start recovering from an injury. Plasma makes up the liquid that your blood cells are suspended in. This liquid has healthy cells and proteins that nourish your body.
In a PRP treatment, a sample of your blood is taken. This blood is placed in a centrifuge where it is spun at a high speed for a few minutes. The spinning action helps to separate the PRP from the less rich components of the blood – like red blood cells. When the process is complete, the PRP is separated and put aside for injection and application on your face. When injected into the skin, the PRP stimulates collagen levels which help to hold up your skin and keep the surface smooth.
When applied on your skin, PRP will hydrate the skin and imbue your skin with nourishing components.
PRP treatments have been around for a while. Athletes in the past and even today use PRP to help heal injuries. Your body knows how to heal itself so why not use those healing elements to directly impact the concerns of your skin? PRP treatments are not just limited to the face but can be used to improve skin all over the body. Schedule a consultation today to get started down the road to healthier, glowing skin.
A PRP facial is a natural treatment that uses your body’s healing components to increase the functionality of your skin and heal blemished areas. A PRP treatment helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, help firm lax skin and even out discolored skin tones. Our patients love this treatment because it is simple, minimally-invasive and does not require downtime. The whole treatment takes less than an hour and will let you get back to your regular schedule with a glowing complexion.
A PRP treatment is ideal for patients who have a busy lifestyle and want to be active in achieving healthy skin.
A PRP treatment will not take a chunk of time out of your schedule but will rather be conveniently performed in under an hour. Some patients can even have this treatment performed over a lunch break. Invasive treatments require days, sometimes weeks of downtime. But a PRP treatment will help you look your best without all the downtime.
During your meeting with Dr. Wells, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and voice any concerns regarding a PRP facial treatment. Dr. Wells will answer your questions and explain the various steps involved in a vampire facial. Along with explaining the PRP treatment, she will examine the skin of your face and ask about your health history. This information will help her determine if a PRP treatment is a safe and healthy option for you. Some patients may not be applicable for a PRP treatment due to a pre-existing medical condition such as one relating to your blood like Hepatitis C.
Together, you and Dr. Wells will create your best treatment plan!
Due to the minimally-invasive nature of the treatment, there aren’t many steps to take to prepare. We recommend patients stay hydrated and eat before their treatment. We want your blood draw to be comfortable and staying hydrated will keep your blood vessels accessible. Dr. Wells will inform you how to prepare prior to your appointment and will provide you with instructions.
When you arrive to your appointment, a sample of your blood will be taken.
You will get to relax for a few minutes as the blood is prepared for treatment. Once the PRP is ready, your skin will be cleaned. A topical anesthetic can be used in the treatment area to provide additional comfort. The PRP will be injected into concerning areas and spread on the skin as well.
The whole treatment will take about forty-five minutes after which you can get on with your day.
There is no downtime with a PRP treatment! You can get back to the activities you love immediately after your appointment. At most, the injection site will be discolored and sensitive. Be careful not to scratch them or expose them to direct sunlight. When washing your face, be careful and use a gentle cleanser.
Patients will notice immediate results as well as improved results in the following weeks. A reduction in lines and wrinkles, firmer skin, improved skin tone, and diminished acne scars are just some of the outcomes our patients enjoy. The results achieved with a facial PRP treatment will last you about a year! Many patients come back and undergo a few PRP treatments to gain their best skin!
PRP is often combined with microneedling. Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment in which tiny, medical grade needles are used to create shallow microlesions in the skin. These microlesions maximize your skin’s level of absorption. PRP is often applied for a much more effective and direct impact on the skin. The PRP helps heal the microlesions quickly and decreases inflammation. Together, these two treatments provide incredible results! Your skin will feel softer and look much smoother. Ask Dr. Wells about combining these treatments to achieve your best skin.
