Benefits of The PRP Facial
Naturally Induced Rejuvenation
There are no pharmaceutical chemicals, strong acids or plumping agents used in PRP therapy. The body responds to the introduction of concentrated amounts of blood platelets the same as it would had an injury occurred. The rejuvenation process is therefore natural yet accelerated.
A Simple Procedure
Some types of skin rejuvenation procedures are rather complicated. A facelift, deep chemical peel, or laser surgery can involve a long recovery period after a PRP facial you can resume normal activities at once.
Increased Collagen Production
As we age and mature, our bodies produce less collagen, which is what makes our skin become brittle, thinner and subject to wrinkling. If new skin growth is created quickly it contains more collagen, the result being more youthful looking skin. The PRP facial has a huge advantage over most other skin rejuvenation treatments.
Long Lasting Results
While the treatment itself takes just a few minutes to complete, the results are long lasting. Results can last for more than one year after just one or two treatment sessions. If you choose multiple treatments, your results will last even longer.
No Risk of Contamination
A PRP facial uses nothing more than your own blood, meaning that there is no risk of platelet or plasma rejection. The body won’t respond to the introduction of PRP beneath the skin in a negative way.
How Does It Work
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial is also known as the Vampire Facial due to the use of blood and plasma. Unlike cosmetic surgery, the PRP Facial is not invasive, an anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin to numb it prior to the procedure which is done using tiny needles that penetrate the surface of the skin, but you may also have plasma injected deeper into the skin for problem areas or deep set wrinkles. If you want smoother, younger looking skin without going under the knife then PRP could be for you.
The ‘controlled damage’ caused by the tiny needles puncturing the skins surface stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin to build up the surface of the skin which can reduce the signs of aging. The plasma further stimulates collagen and elastin fibres as the substance contains growth factors which are beneficial in wound healing and in this procedure it’s the needles which are creating the tiny ‘wounds’.
After the procedure is finished you should be able to see a noticeable difference to your skin as lines and wrinkles appear smoother. Your complexion may be a little red for a couple of days after the procedure as the needles gently puncture the skin which stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin, two natural chemicals which make the skin look more youthful. During the days and weeks after your treatment, the results will continue to improve as the plasma further stimulates the collagen and elastin to grow fresh cells under the skin, making the skin look fuller.
The procedure takes around 30 to 45 minutes. The procedure is performed quickly as the plasma needs to be injected back into the skin within 10 minutes of being extracted to get the full benefit. The results should last around 12 months, making the procedure superb value for money.
