PRP Facial Q & A

What is a PRP facial?

When you have an injury, anything from a minor cut to a major laceration, blood rushes to the area. With this surge of blood comes platelets, which have vital growth factor proteins attached to them. 

Growth factors are responsible for enhancing cell turnover, stimulating collagen and elastin formation, and promoting wound healing. Undergoing a PRP facial re-creates all of these effects to improve your skin’s tone, texture, and appearance. 

During a PRP facial, your aesthetician uses a dermaroller to create hundreds of very tiny microwounds with small needles. They glide this specialized tool over your face, neck, or other areas of concern to trigger healing processes.

In addition to microneedling, your provider applies PRP to your skin. Your PRP is simply a rich concentration of platelets and growth factors — drawn from your own blood — that enhances the effects of microneedling. The combination of microneedling and PRP results in an anti-aging treatment that’s second to none. 

How can a PRP facial help my skin?

The team at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics can personalize your PRP facial to your unique needs and concerns. A PRP facial can help your skin by:

  • Reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars
  • Softening wrinkles, grooves, and lines
  • Treating age spots and sun damage
  • Toning and tightening your skin 
  • Resolving hyperpigmentation
  • Shrinking enlarged pores

Plus, because a PRP facial leads to new skin tissues over time, you should find that the smoother texture of your skin makes it easier for you to apply makeup more evenly for a flawless look. 

When can I expect results after a PRP facial?

Your skin care expert at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics applies a clinical-grade serum to your skin after your PRP facial to minimize swelling and redness. Usually, these minor issues fade within a few hours.

You should notice gradual improvements in your skin within about 2-3 weeks, with continuing improvements up to several months later. For optimal results, your provider may recommend 2-3 monthly PRP facial treatments. 

Once you achieve your desired results, it’s beneficial to schedule maintenance PRP facials at Integrative Wellness & Aesthetics to curb the effects of aging.
