What is a PRP Facial?
A PRP facial is often called a vampire like facial due to the red bloody look of this medical skin treatment. This facial is actually a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
During this treatment, a mask is made out of your own blood and spread all over your face to rejuvenate your complexion. It can be combined with other therapies like microneedling to improve the skin texture and tone.
It triggers collagen production by stimulating the body’s natural wound healing response. It’s the high amount of growth factors in PRP that help your body heal.
Benefits of a PRP Facial
Many are opting for this treatment due to the many benefits of using your own plasma as a healing agent. This is a good option to plump the skin aside from dermal fillers.
The PRP facial may help:
- Stimulate collagen production
- Encourage elastin production
- Reduce fine lines, folds, wrinkles
- Open pores
- Improve pigmentation
- Improve the overall health of the skin
- Reduce scars, wrinkles, or sun damage
Am I a Candidate for a PRP Facial?
Before the PRP facial treatment, we recommend a consultation so we can talk with you about your goals. Often, it is helpful to map out a plan for your desires. You may be worried about certain spots, wrinkles, or skin damage while others are looking to prevent the aging process.
Regardless of your concerns, a PRP facial will likely help you achieve your goals. This medical PRP treatment may also be performed with other cosmetic procedures. This is something we can discuss together prior to your facial.
How is a PRP Facial Performed?
- You will be guided into a clean room and be made comfortable.
- A numbing cream will be applied to your face so your skin will be completely numb.
- Our staff will draw a small amount of blood (about 30 ml) from a vein in your arm.
- Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge machine for about 10 minutes until the plasma separates from the rest of the blood.
- Your provider will take your plasma and inject it all over your face for about 20 minutes.
- We will wipe away any excess blood and help your skin feel rejuvenated.
- Following the facial, we may apply ice to reduce redness, swelling and bruising.
What Can I do After Facial?
The facial does not take long, and the recovery is not as gruesome as the facial may first appear. Patients can return to their daily activities the following day after the procedure.
You may have some redness and soreness, similar to a sunburn, that may occur immediately following the treatment.
Makeup may be applied the day after the procedure.
What are the Results?
The results of the PRP treatment may vary with each individual and multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve desirable results. A series of treatments are recommended for the best possible outcome.
It usually takes around two or three weeks after the procedure to start seeing visible improvements in the skin and around four to six weeks to see a marked difference. The results of PRP are not instant like dermal fillers.
Many prefer the results of a vampire facial because they occur gradually and are very natural. The PRP will help your skin’s natural cell production as your skin heals from the treatment.
Is a PRP Facial Worth It?
The cost of a the facial will vary based on the specific treatment or procedure done at the time of service. It will also vary if you opt for any additional treatments in addition to the PRP. We can talk with you about payment options and what you can expect to pay.
Most are very satisfied with the results, opting to implement a vampire facial as part of their routine skin maintenance. There are great benefits to having your blood help rejuvenate your skin and help you get a youthful glow in a natural way.
