What is PRP?
PRP is a natural treatment that separates growth factors from your blood, that can be injected into an area of the body that needs collagen or tissue repair. Platelets are cells in blood that help tissue heal and grow new cells.
PRP is an extraordinary treatment because it uses your body’s own healing power to jump start tissue healing and transformation, as well as collagen regrowth. The procedure is simple, non-surgical, and completely hypoallergenic.
PRP has been known to be used in the face for facial rejuvention, in the scalp for hair restoration and in the vaginal area for woman's health. Learn more about how PRP can be beneficial.
The PRP Facial
The PRP Facial is an innovative treatment that reduces fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores and acne scars by combining the power of PRP and Microneedling. The skin tightens and glows with color and scaring softens for a beautiful younger result.
How It Works
A treating physician will start the treatment by painlessly drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is then centrifuged to isolate platelets from the rest of the blood. The concentrations of platelets are then injected into a treated area using a very fine needle to prevent discomfort. The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events.
The PRP Facial can aid in correcting:
Uneven skin texture from acne scarring
Unclear skin (from allergic reaction, acne, or pigmentation)
Facial fine lines & wrinkles
PRP Facial FAQ
How long do results from a PRP facial last?
The results of a PRP facial have been known to last for up to eight weeks. The results will vary in each patient and will depend on the area being treated. The benefit of a PRP facial is that it does not require surgery or lengthy downtime, plus it is less expensive.
What are the risks and complications of a PRP facial?
Possible risks from a PRP facial when performed on its own are extremely mild and include only temporary bruising and swelling. When microneedling is performed with PRP therapy, potential risks may include skin infection, pigment changes, and delayed healing. This is why it’s important to have cosmetic treatments performed by an experienced practitioner like the ones at Renew Laser & Skin who have studied and are skilled in the process.
Will a PRP facial help replenish volume?
A PRP facial cannot add volume in areas like your lips and cheeks. While PRP facials offer stunning results since they rejuvenate your complexion and boost the production of elastin and collagen, they do not increase volume. If you want to contour certain areas on the face, you may add dermal fillers to your PRP facial treatment.
How often should I get a PRP facial treatment?
After an initial series of treatments, you should get maintenance sessions 2 – 4 times per year. How often you need treatments will be based on the health and age of your skin as well as your goals, so our team will help you decide on your unique PRP facial plan.
