Facials have long been viewed as a form of self-care and a way to pamper yourself. One new type of facial is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation treatment. The anti-aging benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation treatments make it a very appealing option for skin rejuvenation. Our company, Revive, located in Palm Beach Gardens Florida, is happy to provide this treatment option for your skincare needs.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation treatment is appealing because it allows your body to use its own healing process to promote anti-aging results. The natural processes associated with PRP are less invasive. It is found that the body heals much faster with this procedure compared to many other cosmetic surgery procedures. The long term results from PRP treatments can be seen over a relatively short time.
The staff at Revive is ready to assist you. We have a dedicated team of professionals with many years of combined experience. Our goal is to provide you with a service that allows you to feel and look your absolute best. We aim to provide you with a fulfilling experience in a safe environment.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma is used in the PRP facial rejuvenation treatment process. Some refer to this process as a vampire treatment because you use your own blood for the procedure. The use of platelet-rich plasma is a natural form of treatment and much less invasive than other surgical options.
The process of PRP focuses on using the platelets in your own plasma. Once a small amount of your own blood is drawn a machine called a centrifuge is used to spin the vial of blood. The red and white blood cells are excluded during the separation of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The plasma that has the most platelets is then injected into your skin.
There are growth factors within that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that stimulate cell regeneration. The platelets promote healing and stimulate cell growth. This type of plasma stimulates collagen production and elastin. This platelet-rich plasma has been shown to have many benefits. Decreasing the signs of aging is one of those benefits.
The Process of PRP Facial Treatments
Platelet-rich plasma facial treatments require a series of injections. Once your face has been numbed the treatment process begins.
The procedure includes these steps:
- Blood is drawn from your arm
- The blood is placed in a machine that separates your platelets from your blood
- The blood that has the highest number of platelets is either injected into your skin or spread on top of your face using a micro-needling technique
- Your face absorbs the PRP
- This process is repeated during future sessions
The entire procedure generally takes about an hour. The after-effects of a PRP treatment, such as bruising, soreness, and swelling, are minimal. This is one of the reasons why many people find the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment procedure appealing.
The Benefits of PRP Facial Rejuvenation
There are many benefits of platelet-rich plasma facial rejuvenation treatment. Not only will it restore your youthful appearance, but it will also increase your overall self-esteem. The many physical benefits include:
1. A Reduction In Fine Lines and Wrinkles
PRP is used in facial rejuvenation because it promotes the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen is generated and this decreases the appearance of those lines and wrinkles.
2. An Increase In Collagen Production
The amount of collagen that our bodies produce decreases as we age. Platelet-rich plasma treatments on your face stimulate collagen production. This causes your skin to become plumper and to tighten and therefore look more youthful in appearance.
3. An Improvement of Moisture Retention
Skin needs to remain strong and thick in order to retain moisture. Thin skin reveals enlarged pores and causes sagging to occur. It is then that the signs of aging are more visible.
4. Enhancement of Skin Tone and Texture
Many skin imperfections can be improved upon when PRP treatment is used on your face. Improvements in skin due to acne scars, surgical scars, hyperpigmentation are a few examples. PRP stimulates collagen which promotes the healing of damaged skin.
5. Improvement In Sun Damaged Skin
Overexposure to the sun can cause many problems. The sun’s damage to your face is very apparent over time. This damage to your skin’s surface is reduced with PRP treatments for the face.
6. Treatments Times Are Minimal
The amount of time needed for platelet-rich plasma treatments is minimal. On average, from start to finish, the process generally takes an hour. This is much different than many other cosmetic procedures.
7. Healing Is Fast
Platelet-rich plasma facial treatments are much less invasive than other cosmetic procedures. The downtime that you’ll experience is small. Because your skin is being injected with your own collagen the healing process begins immediately.
Unlike when superficial fillers are used, the results from platelet-rich plasma treatments (PRP) are found to have longer-lasting results. The process stimulates collagen production in your body. This rejuvenates your skin and brings out a more youthful appearance.
How Does PRP Rejuvenate the Skin?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has many benefits for your skin. The platelet intense plasma is known to stimulate collagen. Platelet-rich plasma increases the healing process for some skin problems. This results in skin that is tighter and has a smoother appearance.
You may notice the results of platelet-rich plasma treatments in a short span of time. Signs of skin rejuvenation may include:
- The general appearance of the skin looks tighter
- There is more fullness to the face
- There is a healthier look to the face
- Diminished age spots
- Increase in the appearance of your overall skin tone
- Softening of under the eye hollows
The PRP skin rejuvenation process is natural and does not involve any synthetic serums. The collagen that is revitalized triggers a healing process within your body. The result is a more youthful appearance.
Is PRP Facial Rejuvenation Less Invasive Than Other Cosmetic Surgical Procedures?
Platelet-rich plasma facial treatments are much less invasive than other cosmetic surgeries. Because your own blood plasma is drawn and then used in the procedure there is minimal chance for infection to occur. The risk of infection is minimal and can be caused due to skin that hasn’t been cleaned properly before treatment.
Your blood is drawn and the plasma is separated. The process then involves either micro-needling therapy or injections of that plasma back into your skin. This is much less invasive than a surgical procedure required in other cosmetic procedures.
The recovery time is also much faster for this type of facial treatment. The amount of pain and discomfort is minimal. There may be slight bruising and swelling. These after-effects typically go away a few days after the treatment.
Are You A Candidate for A PRP Facial Rejuvenation Treatment?
Facial treatments using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a safe process. But as with any procedure, there are those for who it is not recommended. If you have any of the following medical conditions you should find an alternative treatment plan:
- HIV or AIDS
- Hepatitis C
- Blood cancer of any kind
- Taking a blood thinner
- Skin cancer
The above are all medical conditions that affect blood platelets which would cause your health to be compromised. If you do not have any of the above medical constraints then this form of treatment for your face may be just the boost you are looking for. There have been promising results from this minimally invasive procedure.
