What is a PRP Facial?

Thomas Eye Group offers several aesthetic services to help you look your best through every season of life. If you are noticing age spots or have had acne-prone skin, it’s common for scarring to be left behind. The PRP facial, also known as the “vampire facial,” is one of our newest offerings. PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma, Facials are one of the best ways to restore radiant, more youthful complexion and improve the quality of their skin.

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.

There are many reasons that a PRP facial could be right for you, from wrinkles and lines around the eyes and mouth to mild skin laxity a PRP facial addresses all skin texture concerns. Call our Sandy Springs office today at (404) 256-1507 so we can help you spring into your most youthful glow!
