The use of PRP has added a new dimension to micro-needling allowing for more effective rejuvenation. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelets provide essential growth factors that are involved in stem cell migration, differentiation, and proliferation. They stimulate the deposition of new collagen as well as increasing circulation through new blood vessel formation. Plasma contains many essential ingredients including nutrients, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, and proteins.
How Does PRP Facial Treatment Work
PRP Facial Treatments involves applying a topical anesthetic cream for about 30 minutes prior to the procedure. A blood sample is taken from the patient which is then centrifuged to allow for the separation of platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The esthetician then begins microneedling along with the application of PRP which is squirted through a syringe. This process is repeated throughout the face. The face will appear reddish for several hours, but most patients can return to work the following day while applying makeup. The face feels smoother and exudes a glow. The procedure should be repeated on a monthly basis for three months.
