PRP Facial (Platelet Rich Plasma)
What is the PRP Facial?
The PRP Facial uses a combination of micro-needling (DermPen) with the topical application of the patients own PRP-platelet rich plasma that is applied during and after the procedure.
Is the PRP Facial System safe?
Used on thousands of patients worldwide, PRP Facial has been shown to be both safe and effective. PRP Facial contains only autologous components and no severe adverse reactions have been reported (nodules, bumps or granulomas).
How is treatment with PRP Facial performed?
PRP Facial yields a natural biologically-active PRP, loaded with viable platelets that can be applied in a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Application typically takes place in the physician’s office. Your medical provider can use a variety of pain management techniques during treatment to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
Are there any side effects?
Since PRP Facial uses your own blood and does not contain any animal or synthetic components, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction and there have been no reported allergic reactions to date. Consequently, skin allergy testing is unnecessary prior to treatment. However, if you have a history of allergies please inform your physician. There have been no known serious side effects reported in actual usage. However, you may experience some common reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, bruising, swelling, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site. These temporary conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
What result can I expect?
The treatment will provide a gradual increase in volume, smoother texture and improved skin color by helping to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Following your treatment, you may have small areas of scabbing 5 to 7 days after. Within 2 to 4 weeks you will see improvement with continue positive changes up to 12 weeks
Do I need more than one treatment?
Desired results may be achieved in just one visit or several sessions depending on the reason for treatment.
