How PRP Treatment Works
PRP for face is a treatment which takes advantage of the benefits of platelet-rich-plasma in the blood to improve and add glowing, smooth and younger looking skin on the patient’s face. First, a small blood sample is collected from your body, usually from the arm. Since one’s own blood is used, there is not possibility of an allergic reaction like with other synthetic methods. Next up, the blood is centrifuged to separate the platelets from the blood. The doctor then applies local anesthesia to the surface of the face to nullify any pain or discomfort. Lastly, the platelets are injected into your face using specialized injection needles.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stimulates the growth and rejuvenation of youthful skin in the patient’s face when injected into the body.
In many cases, PRP injections are combined in a program with micro-needling mesotherapy. Mesotherapy adds vitamins to the skin that allows for the production of more collagen to enhance youthfulness. The combination can stimulate the collagen in your face to produce stronger and firmer skin.
What to Expect From PRP Treatments
Though the results of PRP are not immediate, in a matter of a few days, changes should be clearly visible.
Shortly after the procedure, the newly created collagen will start to improve the health of the cells underneath your skin. At this stage, patients begin to see improvement in skin color, texture, and quality. You’ll experience a fresher and youthful look in your skin. After your PRP For Face Treatment, you should give yourself the rest of the day off to naturally heal the area as you may experience some mild redness, and swelling at the spot of the injection. However the next day, you can return to normal tasks.
Specifically, you will;
- Have smoother looking skin owing to the formation of new collagen and rejuvenated skin
