Refresh your radiance
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) facial treatments use your blood to trick your body into the healing process that uniquely repairs the skin. This treatment harnesses the body’s healing properties to induce phenomenal skin rejuvenation. It is a great way to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and restore volume and skin elasticity.
PRP Therapy is excellent for the face and is also widely used for hair restoration. Hair replacement experts can use PRP to increase hair growth in men and women struggling with androgenic alopecia or any form of hair loss.
PRP injections help trigger a natural hair growth response by increasing the blood supply to a hair follicle which helps increase the hair’s thickness.
There are several benefits to receiving a PRP facial treatment. The most notable benefits are the skin’s tone and texture improvement. Another advantage is how the treatment process prompts rapid skin healing, collagen production, and new cell growth. This combination works together to potentially help patients take years off their appearance, helping them look more youthful and radiant.
How It Works
PRP facial treatments are a combination of PRP therapy and micro-needling. Once the PRP is extracted, the skin will undergo micro-needling. This process creates minor, superficial wounds across the face. The PRP is applied to the skin during the micro-needling process and initiates the rapid rejuvenation process that improves the skin, revealing a more supple, youthful complexion.
