What are the Benefits of PRP Treatment for the Face?

The skin on your face is different and often more delicate and vulnerable than the rest of your body. It’s constantly exposed to the elements, and your pores are quick to pick up dirt and grime. This is why proper skincare is so important, but topical treatment can’t take care of everything!

To complement your quality skincare routine, we offer a variety of additional professional treatments. While our treatments remain gentle and minimally invasive, they are powerful and revolutionary in many ways. We can help you prevent and fight aging while restoring elasticity and youthfulness to your face for a beautiful glow.

One such treatment is a PRP treatment, also known as a “vampire facial,” since it brilliantly uses your own blood to rejuvenate your skin! Read on to learn more about this gentle, innovative procedure and how it can benefit your face specifically.

What is PRP Treatment for the Face?

PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma,” which is something found in blood when a sample is separated into its various components. Plasma is the liquid part of the blood, and platelets are responsible for blood clotting. However, platelets are also powerful healers that can help skin regenerate and rejuvenate.

Once separated from a blood sample, platelet-rich plasma can be applied topically or injected right back into the skin. Topical application has its benefits, but the real power comes with proper injections. Although this is slightly more involved and invasive than a simple topical treatment, many find the benefits to be well worth it.

Benefits of PRP Treatment for the Face

PRP treatments are highly versatile. They can treat and rejuvenate the skin, address hair loss, and even help heal sports injuries. However, many seek out PRP treatments for the healing and anti-aging benefits for their face.

Many times, a series of PRP treatments for the face is recommended for your skin to reach its full potential. This number varies from person to person but once finished, you’ll enjoy fantastic results and benefits:

Increased Collagen Production

One of the most exciting benefits of PRP treatments for the face is the boost in collagen and elastin production. Collagen is an essential component of healthy, glowing skin. Our bodies produce it naturally, though production slows with age. This is why PRP treatments and other collagen-boosting methods are so important for the health and longevity of your skin. Collagen also plays a role in repairing things like wrinkles, scarring, and so much more, making it one of the most important things you can give your skin.

Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles

While collagen plays a role in eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, so do the new cells produced by a PRP facial. This treatment promotes cell turnover, creating a natural firming and tightening of the skin, thus reducing the appearance of lines.

In addition to eliminating lines and wrinkles, this “plumping” of the skin can help diminish and even out any “hollow” or sunken areas of the face.

Improved Moisture

Skin is easily irritated by outside toxins and pollutants, but the thicker and stronger your skin is, the better it can protect the more delicate, deeper layers. Strong skin also retains better moisture. This means that hydration lasts longer, and your skin is more receptive to skincare products, particularly high-quality moisturizers.

A PRP facial works to unclog your pores while reducing their size and appearance. This helps create a better moisture barrier and improves the strength of your skin overall, blocking dirt and bacteria from getting in.

Tight, Firm, Elastic Skin

Many notice increased skin laxity as they age. This can result in dry and saggy skin, with certain parts of the face looking thin and sunken. Many use PRP treatments to plump their lips back up or reshape their cheeks.

The increased collagen production from a PRP facial can significantly improve a loose, saggy appearance with a transformation of plump, tight, and newly elastic skin cells.

Many turn to invasive procedures and surgeries to achieve this result, but a PRP treatment for face is a much safer, gentler alternative.

Better Tone and Texture

Many people struggle with acne scarring, redness, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, or even surgical scars. These contribute to an uneven appearance and highly texturized skin.

The increase in collagen and new, healthy skin cells that come with a PRP facial can help reduce the appearance of all these things! Many see improvements in this area after a single treatment. After a few sessions, you’ll notice a smoother, more even texture, and discolouration will slowly disappear.

This not only makes for healthier overall skin, but it offers a great confidence boost as scarring and discolouration on the face often impact this.

Lasting Results

Lastly, PRP treatment for the face offers long-lasting results. Although many treatments are effective, some require frequent revisits and ongoing treatment. A PRP treatment for the face increases collagen production and promotes new cell growth, so the results last.

With proper aftercare each time and a good, consistent skincare routine, you may be able to enjoy the results for several years. We also offer a variety of other treatments that you can enjoy in the meantime that may enhance your results even further!

This is something we can discuss during a proper consultation. Here, our skincare professionals will answer all your questions and prepare a personalized plan for optimal results.
