What Is PRP?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP), is a treatment of extensive applications. Technicians get PRP from your blood. They do so by drawing a tube worth of blood from you.
The sample goes into the laboratory where the red blood cells separate from the platelet-rich plasma.
PRP includes many types of growth factors that have several functions. For instance, applying PRP around the joints heals athletic injuries. Whereas injecting it into the scalp treats hair loss.
And on the skin, PRP facial has equally outstanding results.
How Does PRP Facial Work?
Similar to other PRP treatments, the process begins by drawing blood. The sample undergoes centrifuging. While your PRP is being prepared in the lab, technicians begin micro-needling for you. After 30 mins of micro-needling, the technicians massage the PRP into your skin.
Micro-needling stimulates collagen production while also allowing the PRP to get into the skin. The growth factors help rejuvenate the face by tightening the skin, reducing wrinkling, and giving it a glow.
How Does PRP Facial Affect The Skin
PRP facial has growth factors that encourage collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin a youthful glow. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. Which is why our face wrinkles and sags with time.
Thus why PRP facial is able to rejuvenate the skin, tighten, and refresh it. The treatment is also good for treating hyperpigmentation, discoloration, and age spots. It also removes scars giving you clear skin.
