Many of us spend tons of money on skin care products as we try to improve our complexions and maintain that ageless look. The majority of these topicals come branded with a lot of hype but don’t deliver impressive results. There is one aesthetic treatment that stands out, however, and it remains a trending favorite because it goes back to the basics and uses a natural approach. It’s called PRP or platelet-rich plasma, and it can create the ultimate treatment in facial rejuvenation. It’s unique, fast and comes with barely any downtime.
The Steps to Gorgeous Skin
PRP involves some simple steps during the procedure, and a tiny amount of your own blood is involved. Did you know that the platelet-rich plasma we all have is brimming with high concentrations of growth factors? These amazing assets are able to rejuvenate aging and sun-damaged facial skin, improve its clinical appearance and induce new collagen synthesis.
During step one, blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge machine to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. Your skin will be cleansed and prepped for the next step to introduce the PRP to the skin. Your skin will react by plumping up, and it will feel tighter. That means the growth factors are responding to the micro-channels for healing.
Soft, Radiant and Firmer Skin
Just one PRP treatment session can produce impressive results. Your skin’s texture will feel smoother and softer. Your skin tone will appear more balanced and glowing, and your face will feel tighter. More improvements will be noticeable as the weeks go by and your skin repairs itself naturally. New cell growth and collagen emerges, so the results of PRP treatments can last for quite a while.
Most clients do not report any extensive downtime. The most common issues are redness and skin sensitivity. You can return to your normal routine right after the procedure. PRP for facial rejuvenation is a very unique treatment because you are using your own natural blood products. There is nothing synthetic involved to cause irritation or an allergic reaction. The treatment can be paired with other treatments, such as microneedling, for enhanced results.
