Microneedling infused with PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma Facial Injections only
THE PRP PROCESS:
The PRP injection treatment is a multi-step process, consisting of:
STEP 1: PRP:
In order to collect the platelet-rich plasma from your blood, a routine blood draw will be performed. The blood is then placed into a machine called a centrifuge, which will spin to separate the platelets from the other blood components. Once the platelets are separated, they are collected and applied to the treatment area.
STEP 2: MICRONEEDLING:
Next, a special microneedling pen will be used to create micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, while simultaneously pushing the platelet-rich plasma deep into the skin for optimal absorption.
OR FACIAL INJECTIONS:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is known as a “natural filler” treatment that gives a more youthful appearance to the skin with minimal downtime. There are virtually no risks of allergies or sensitivity as PRP is derived from your own blood. PRP is actually blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets that stimulate stem cells to help the body regenerate and heal at a faster rate. PRP improves overall skin texture, decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, and plumps hollowing areas such as tear trough grooves, cheeks, and temples. PRP can also help smooth both acne and surgical scars.
PRP facial rejuvenation naturally stimulates your body’s own collagen production, and it takes about three months for maximum collagen regeneration to occur. Most patients notice an improvement in their skin texture in the first month after the treatment. It is recommended to have 2-3 treatments spaced at 6- 8 week intervals. The results of PRP rejuvenation are long term with most patients receiving touch up treatments at one year to further stimulate collagen production and continued facial rejuvenation. For more immediate improvement, we can combine the benefits of the PRP facial rejuvenation with Botox, fillers, microneedling, and laser skin resurfacing.
By combining targeted injections with microneedling, PRP facials produce results quickly. Most patients notice visible improvement within 2-3 weeks of the last appointment. For the best results, three sessions with 4-6 weeks apart is suggested then once your results are reached, we suggest one treatment a year for maintenance.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
PRP is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma.
Are there any risks?
Since the autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. Nevertheless, before any treatment, disclose all the medications you are taking (including herbs) to your provider.
How does the PRP process work?
First, the practitioner draws an amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test. Second, the practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. Third, the platelet-rich plasma is activated to release growth factors and signaling proteins.
How long does the procedure take?
The entire procedure usually takes 45 to 60 minutes or less to perform any service using PRP.
Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary side effects and typically resolve within two days.
Can someone be allergic to PRP?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction. In addition, no allergic reactions have been reported to date. Our PRP process is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient’s own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.
