What is the PRP Facial?
With PRP Facial, micro-needling is used to create thousands of microscopic channels of varying depths into the skin. When the PRP is applied over the micro-needled areas, it’s able to penetrate deeper into the underlying skin. The PRP then intensifies the natural healing mechanism within the skin by the absorption of its high concentration of growth factors.
The micro-needling with PRP of the Facial is best for patients who have baseline good skin that isn’t severely damaged, but who are also looking for overall skin rejuvenation and improvement in skin texture. The redness and scratched-looking appearance may last for 1-2 days. Once the redness resolves, the skin tightening and rejuvenation begins. Generally, with the PRP Facial, periodic touch-ups are recommended to maintain the effects of the procedure.
