No one wants to look in the mirror and see nothing but wrinkles forming all over their face. However, most people don’t want to undergo surgery to remedy the problem either. There is a new approach to solving this problem with the new procedure known as the plasma rich protein (PRP) facial. This treatment combines the plasma from your blood and platelets as well as other rejuvenation techniques to give you tightened, smooth skin tones.
Platelet Rich Plasma Centrifuge Protocol
Rather than cosmetic, PRP facials are a medical procedure. To get started, a sample of your blood must be taken. This is the beginning of the two step process where the blood is spun in a centrifuge to extract protein-rich plasma followed by the extraction of the platelets. When this sample is then concentrated, you have created protein-rich plasma.
PRP Microneedling Facial Preparation & Procedure
The use of protein-rich plasma has been around for years to promote healing in ankles, knees and elbows, but has just recently been found to help to stimulate collagen production. PRP has been proven to stimulate the body’s ability to heal. Once PRP has been achieved, the dermatologists will spread the plasma on your face and then use microneedling across your cheeks and forehead to allow your body to absorb the protein. Microneedling is a process where little sterile needles are used to make superficial punctures in the skin. This tackles the problem in two layers; both on top and beneath the skin.
Enhancing PRP Results with Botox & Fillers
To further enhance the PRP treatment and reduce deep lines and wrinkles, the medical team may inject hyaluronic acid fillers and Botox. These fillers will add volume to the skin where age has taken its toll and Botox will keep the facial muscles from contracting.
PRP Facial Aftercare & Recovery
After your PRP facial, you can expect to see some mild bruising caused by the microneedling. You also need to be prepared to have your blood drawn for the treatment. If you are looking for the best results possible with your PRP facial, you will need to schedule follow up appointments and have the facial done 1-2 times about two months apart. As time goes on, you may notice that you need to have some more maintenance appointments done more regularly.
