PRP facial If the idea of harnessing your body’s natural ability to heal itself sounds genius to you, you may be excited to learn about PRP. This nonsurgical treatment technique allows you to stimulate your body’s own repair and rejuvenation processes with just a little help from a trained medical professional.
Patients often try PRP to improve aging or damaged skin that doesn’t seem to respond to other treatments. The treatment can reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark under-eye circles, and even hair loss. For some, the end result seems almost magical.
WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is an anti-aging procedure that uses plasma derived from your own blood to stimulate collagen and boost healing to achieve natural-looking skin results. A trained professional takes a sample of your blood, runs it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets in your plasma, and then uses it for microneedling or injects the plasma and platelets directly into the treatment area.
The activated platelets in PRP release growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and reparative cells. They also have hydrating properties that can help create the anti-aging process. Essentially, PRP facials hijack your body’s natural healing processes to rejuvenate your face.
PRP is often done as a facial with microneedling or specifically injected under the eyes to combat dark circles. It can also be used to stimulate hair growth or help with sports injury healing.
PRP FACIAL INJECTION RESULTS
PRP or more concentrated PRF injections can work wonders on dark circles and crepey skin under the eyes. The growth factors, platelets, mesenchymal stem cells, and cytokines in PRP all help repair the tissues in the treatment area, leading to a smooth, rejuvenated eye appearance.
Research has shown that PRP is a safe and effective rejuvenation treatment. One study found that patients who were treated with PRP under the eyes three times at monthly intervals experienced an increase in skin volume and elasticity. Most of the patients said they were satisfied with their results.
Results generally last for six to twelve months, depending on your age and how well your body responds to the treatments. If you would like to maintain your results, you can schedule follow-up treatments at LK Beauty Med Spa 480-781-6161
