As you grow older, the collagen and elastin in your skin begins breaking down more quickly. These important skin components actually break down more quickly than your body can repair them. The loss of collagen related to the aging process leads to skin that becomes gradually thinner, while elastin loss causes a corresponding loss of skin elasticity. The result is skin that can become prematurely aged, causing the development of lines and wrinkles on the face and sagging skin. Many people have helped enhance their appearance by undergoing a PRP facial as a nice alternative to conventional cosmetic surgery.
The PRP Facial
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is an innovative skin rejuvenation technique that uses blood factors taken from your own blood to stimulate the innate healing abilities of your body. The therapy has established a deserved reputation for regenerating collagen and elastin fibers for the repair of damaged skin tissue, resulting in a healthier, more youthful appearance.
PRP is a blood product that we harvest from your own blood. We withdraw a small amount of blood and spin it in a centrifuge, which separates and concentrates blood platelets. Blood platelets contain a rich amount of growth factors that we can use to speed up the healing process and rejuvenate the appearance of skin affected by sun damage or the effects of aging.
PRP Facial Benefits
A PRP facial treatment takes advantage of the presence of your own blood platelets to stimulate the production of new collagen, which results in smoother, tighter skin. Over the weeks and months after your facial, your body will respond by producing new collagen formed by stem cells and fibroblasts. After your facial, you should notice a more even and bright complexion, reduced hyperpigmentation, smaller pores, and minimized fine lines. Acne sufferers normally notice a reduction in the number of their lesions and severity, as well as minimized scars.
PRP Facial Advantages
One of the main advantages appreciated by patients is the ability of the PRP facial to enhance their appearance with no risk of an allergic reaction and low risk of adverse events. Since we are not injecting foreign substances, your body will tolerate the procedure quite well. This safe and effective non-surgical technique results in faster healing, improve acne scars, reduced under-eye circles, and skin that is tighter and more toned.
