Otherwise known as a ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ Facial, it involves withdrawing the platelets from your blood. Platelets contain a high level of alpha granules that are effective in wound healing, and by triggering the body into damage control the result improves skin’s elasticity, volume and texture.
The PRP is re-injected into the face with a fine needle, in turn stimulating collagen and elastin production, which results in a significant increase in skin’s elasticity and firmness.
What is involved in the process is that when the blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge, it separates the blood into 3 succinct layers – plasma (on top), blood cells and platelets (middle) and red blood cells (bottom). This then makes it easier to extract the platelets (PRP) and is then effectively re-introduced into the skin to stimulate cell turnover.
The PRP treatment has a plethora of advantages and benefits on the skin;
For Sun damage – It brightens the skin and reduces pigmentation and uneven skin tone, it can also be combined with other treatments such as iPixel, microdermabrasion and microneedling to incredibly rejuvenate the skin.
For Lines & Wrinkles – By boosting collagen and elastin production in the skin, it helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles as well as firming the skin.
For Dull Skin – Again, by boosting the blood supply and aiding cell turnover, the complexion is forced to regenerate and overcome dull skin.
For Acne Scars – Promoting collagen stimulation, PRP helps to treat atrophic acne scars.
Even for hair loss, a PRP Facial encourages cell and hair growth by regenerating new cells.
