If you’re looking for ways to improve your facial skin for a younger, glowing aesthetic, consider platelet-rich plasma treatments. PRP therapy is a popular treatment for skin and hair that helps your body enhance itself. While it can help with everything from wound healing to dark spot removal on your skin, facial rejuvenation is its pride and joy.

Here’s how the procedure works and could benefit your skin and body.

How PRP Facial Treatment Works?

PRP therapy uses the platelets in your blood to naturally promote cell reproduction, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. Here’s the basic process:

  1. Before undergoing a PRP session, a qualified medical professional or experienced staff member will draw your blood into a vial and put it in a centrifuge.
  2. The centrifuge spins speedily, causing the blood’s components to separate.
  3. The medical professional then uses the plasma from the vial, injecting it into your face or body’s trouble spots to stimulate cell growth.

Injecting a concentration of platelets into your face can remarkably revitalize the skin. While not immediate, the cell and collagen stimulation enhances your body’s natural healing abilities around the injection sites. It takes time for the body to produce the essential proteins that improve skin texture, appearance, and color, but the results can continue for up to 18 months. 

Most insurance plans won’t cover this cosmetic procedure, which improves the way you look, but you won’t want to miss out on the benefits listed below.

7 Reasons To Consider PRP Treatment To Rejuvenate Your Face

#1 Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The primary reason PRP facial treatments are so effective is that they boost the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein in your body that helps support and strengthen the body’s connective tissues (ligaments and tendons) as well as bone and muscle. It’s also one of the main building blocks of your skin.

Your body needs collagen to replace dead skin cells, improve skin elasticity, and strengthen skin. So, if your face has many fine lines or wrinkles, healthy collagen production can plump it up.

The platelet-rich plasma injections go into the areas of concern, such as sagging cheeks, crow’s feet, or laugh lines. Then, the collagen boost smooths out each area.

#2 Tighter, Firmer Skin

Thanks to the renewed plumpness your skin enjoys after PRP treatments, your face will look smoother and feel softer. The serum injections go deep into the tissue under the epidermis to stimulate this connective tissue rejuvenation. Plus, the extra collagen your body produces will improve your facial skin’s elasticity, making everything feel a little tighter.

Say goodbye to years of skin damage and the natural effects of aging for a while (sometimes, up to two years!).

#3 Improved Moisture Retention

A dry face can cause skin irritation that removes the natural luster and makes facial imperfections more noticeable. A PRP facial treatment can unclog your pores and reduce their appearance for a face that looks and feels healthier. Your facial skin will retain moisture from lotions, creams, or serums better while blocking outside irritants.

With PRP treatments, your facial skin will be healthier. It also acts as an effective barrier against environmental contaminants and irritants.

#4 Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture

Texture plays a major role in how your skin looks and feels. For example, a history of acne can leave your facial skin with scarring and unevenness. However, injecting the serum directly under acne scars may reduce skin depression and even out your facial skin. 

With platelet-rich plasma injections and the growth factors therein, your skin can produce more collagen to smooth your skin texture. It also diminishes hyperpigmentation from acne, sun spots, and other skin-related problems. 

Skin darkening results from the skin producing too much melanin in one spot. Microneedling the PRP serum into the affected area lightens them enough to create a more even skin tone, thanks to increased collagen production.

#5 Lasting Results

Bear in mind that it can take up to a month before you start seeing the results of a PRP facial treatment due to your body’s natural healing processes. However, when you kickstart your body’s production of essential proteins, like collagen and elastin, the process creates a domino effect. After several sessions, your body will continue protein production, even after you stop receiving treatments. 

That means you can enjoy the results of PRP therapy for nearly two years. However, since it’s quick and easy, many patients choose treatment every 6 to 12 months to maintain their desired skin health and appearance. 

#6 Fast and Convenient

You might expect a non-surgical facial treatment that creates long-lasting results to be a long or painful process. However, typical PRP injections take ten minutes to draw your blood and create a concentration of platelets in a centrifuge and then up to an hour to complete the injections. The medical professional providing the service will also ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free during the whole treatment.

#7 Completely Safe Treatment

A PRP treatment is safe to use as a facial treatment option. The platelets come from your blood, not someone else’s. 

However, you might not be an ideal candidate if you have a blood clotting disorder or are currently taking blood thinners.
