Looking for a non-surgical and natural way to improve your facial appearance? Why not ask the providers at your medical spa in Dallas, TX, about PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, facials? These topical applications are a safe and effective method of facial rejuvenation.
Let’s talk about the procedure details and the results you can expect.
What are Platelet-rich Plasma Facials?
PRP facials are becoming one of the most popular aesthetic services available at medical spas in Dallas, TX, and across the United States. The doctor or aesthetician creates tiny skin punctures over the surface of the face utilizing a micro-needling roller. He or she then applies concentrated blood platelets to the areas of wrinkling, sagging, scars, dullness, and hyperpigmentation.
Before going forward, let’s know what are platelets? Platelets are the blood components that get activated when someone is injured. Blood platelets contain vital healing factors involved in clotting.
Regarding their aesthetic applications, platelets can be extracted from a patient, concentrated through lab centrifugation, and then applied to the face. This is exactly what happens during a PRP facial at your Dallas medical spa.
What Is the Aesthetic Treatment Like?
The provider uses a tool called a micro-roller on numbed areas of skin to facilitate absorption of the customized platelet-rich plasma or PRP. This handheld roller makes tiny skin pricks, and once applied, the PRP preparation enters multiple skin layers. The skin reacts by increasing collagen production, the protein responsible for skin elasticity and youthful appearance.
Your med spa provider may recommend you a PRP facial to address:
- Skin blotchiness (hyperpigmentation)
- Acne scars (and other kinds of surgical and injury scars)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin sagging
- Deep creases
Who Can Get A PRP Facial?
Many healthy people can take advantage of these minimally-invasive, non-operative aesthetic services. You may need several treatments spread over weeks to months to achieve and maintain your desired results.
What Are the Typical Results of PRP Facials?
PRP facials are very safe, and they create no downtime. In fact, people go back to their usual activities at home and work right after their 45-minute to one-hour procedures. Some people may have some bruising, mild swelling, and soreness for a limited period. Overall, patients see reductions in creases, wrinkles, and scars.
Our providers recommend limiting your sun exposure after completing your PRP facial to optimize results. Avoid makeup and sunscreen as your face heals.
