What Can I Expect During The PRP Facial?
Before beginning the procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the surface of the treatment area to minimize any discomfort and ensure the patient remains comfortable. While the skin numbs, a small amount of blood will be taken to harvest the PRP from. Then, the blood will be separated from the PRP using a centrifuge.
Once the treatment area is numb, micro-incisions will be made. The microneedling process usually takes about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. After the microneedling portion of the procedure is complete, your skin care provider will massage the PRP into the micro-punctures. This procedure is virtually painless and requires little-to-no downtime.
What Can I Expect After The PRP Facial?
After the treatment is complete, a skin protectant such as a moisturizer or serum may be applied to minimize any redness or discomfort. Because of its minimally invasive nature, patients are free to return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. In most cases, patients can drive themselves home.
Bruising, swelling, and redness are all common following the treatment. However, these symptoms should subside in 4 to 6 days. Throughout the healing process, patients should refrain from touching their skin and ensure to use sun protection. Before sending you home, our skin care team will go over detailed after care instructions to minimize the recovery process and maximize results.
