PRP FACIAL INJECTIONS

PRP is a solution that is created by taking a sample of blood. The blood contains cells known as growth factors, which have the ability to rapidly heal the body. When these cells are concentrated into a dense formula (platelet-rich plasma), they can be injected into the scalp, face, or body to heal and improve appearance with no downtime.

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial injections is a “natural filler” treatment to give more of a youthful appearance. The patient is injected with a concentration of platelets from their own blood to promote the production of collagen and elastin. PRP facial injections stimulates new collagen and enhances regrowth of new healthy skin.


We love using PRP injections in places like smile lines and under the eyes to diminish dark circles. The growth factors and platelets in PRP can help repair the tissues around your eyes, leading to a smooth and renewed appearance.

BENEFITS:

  • PRP facial injections is one of the lowest risk treatments because the process involves injecting a substance sourced from your own body. Mild bruising, swelling or redness can occur at the injection site but usually resolves quickly.

  • PRP improves the skin’s health and regeneration so that dead skin cells are removed faster, giving you smoother skin.

  • When PRP is injected, it repairs the collagen and elastin layer so that the skin regains elasticity. One of our favorite places to inject PRP is the under-eye. PRP allows the skin in the under-eye region to plump up and refill the hollows under the eyes.


The PRP treatment begins with collecting a small sample of blood. The blood sample will then be placed into a machine that separates the beneficial blood platelets from the rest of the ingredients, creating PRP. Then, PRP will be injected into desired areas.


To prepare for the treatment, you will need to avoid excessive and unprotected exposure to the sun. You will additionally need to drink lots of water days before the treatment. Finally, you will need to show up to the appointment with a bare face. Specifically, avoid wearing a moisturizer or makeup just before going in for your appointment.


A numbing topical is applied prior to treatment to allow for a near-painless experience. While receiving treatment you may feel pressure and a vibrating sensation. Immediately after treatment you will feel like you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. Some patients report bruises and inflammation following the procedure with overall redness in the appearance of the treatment area.
