PRP face

The PRP facial is a medical procedure, not a cosmetic procedure. The person performing the process will take a sample of your blood and separate the protein-rich plasma and platelets to make the PRP.

They spin the centrifuge to extract the protein-rich plasma. They remove the platelets also. Then they concentrate the sample and called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP’s high levels of growth factors help the body heal. Dermatologists have started using PRP to boost collagen growth. Orthopedic surgeons inject PRP to heal the knee, ankle, and elbow joints. The overall effect of the PRP facial treatment is visible within weeks to months. This treatment is also known as the “Vampire Facial.”

How does PRP treatment differ from fillers or other injections?

  • Wrinkles and sagging are common on tired skin, especially around the mouth and plump lips. We inject these areas with solid substances of hyaluronic acid, namely Restylane and Juvederm. These filters last about 6-18 months and are to be done again after a period determined by the attending physician.
  • PRP activates and stimulates collagen growth in the body to rejuvenate the entire face instead of focusing on one wrinkle at a time. It also soothes a tired face, helps fill sunken cheeks, improvises skin tone, firms and smoothes skin, and fills in for areas of the skin unreachable by hyaluronic acid.
  • Skin PRP treatments can be done with hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. These treatments complement each other to help patients achieve a much younger face. PRP treatments do what fillers cannot. For example, fillers help remove lines and wrinkles, and PRP focuses on increasing facial volume and improving skin tone. PRP also improves and smoothes skin texture.

How does the procedure work?

People know that PRP treatment can make their skin glow and rejuvenate, but they don’t know about the procedure. In simple terms, the process of PRP treatment is –

  • The doctor will collect a small sample of your blood. They will put it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. When infused into the facial skin, this protein-rich plasma helps to stimulate collagen production.
  • Numb the skin with a topical cream about 20 minutes before the procedure.
  • The first injection is of Hyaluronic Acid and PhytoBoost to ensure that the skin is hydrated and free of pigment spots.
  • We spread Plasma all over the face before the next step in the process.
  • Then, Medical technicians use microneedle devices on the forehead, cheeks, and other parts of the face to allow protein-rich substances to penetrate deep into the skin.
  • Micro-Needing itself stimulates collagen growth. Therefore, we get a double collagen enhancement effect with PRP injections.
  • After the procedure, you may notice a superficial soreness on your face and tiny bruises from the microneedle technology.
  • For deep wrinkles and other problem areas of facial skin, Our team may use fillers or Botox to address lack of volume or fine lines.
