What are PRP facials?
It’s better to understand PRP facials when you understand what PRP stands for. PRP is platelet-rich plasma, which is obtained by drawing your blood, spinning it down, and extracting white and red blood cells.
The PRP facial, also known as the “vampire facial,” is done through micro needling. The platelet-rich plasma will be injected into the skin to trigger new collagen and elastin production, making your skin look smoother, brighter, and more youthful.
What are the benefits?
PRP facials improve skin texture and wrinkles. It also removes hyperpigmentation and improves acne and acne scarring by reducing pore size.
How many treatments do you need?
It depends on each patient, but if you are addressing hyperpigmentation or acne scarring, typically two to three treatments.
After that, you will need to come back for maintenance for about six months to a year.
What is the after-care routine?
Once you rinse your face clean from the PRP facial (12-24 hours after the procedure), follow up with a gentle cleanser and SPF moisturizer.
