How It Works

  • PRP facials are minimally invasive quick sessions that can address a variety of concerns with just one single treatment. The results are both natural and long-lasting, giving you the confidence of an enhanced flawless complexion.
  • The PRP facial process is so quick it can be completed within your lunch break with little to no downtown following the facial. The first step during a PRP facial is to draw a small portion of blood from the patient’s arm. The removed blood is then spun to isolate the plasma from the red and white blood cells.
  • Blood cells hold beneficial components to stimulate the natural healing processes of the skin. PRP is one element of the blood that contains growth factors that generate new cells. When injected into the dermal layers using micro-needling, PRP also acts as a type of matrix to support the underlying structure and stimulate collagen production for skin that is firmer, smoother and more youthful.
  • The tiny channels produced by the micro-needling process allow for deeper penetration of the PRP while stimulating the dermal structure to heal itself through collagen production and cell regeneration.
