Platelet Rich Plasma injections encourage cell turnover, leaving you with healthy, glowing skin.

ou have probably heard of athletes getting PRP injections to speed up the healing process of an injury. Well, PRP therapy has enormous benefits to the skin on your face, lending the same healing properties it does to athletes with injuries. As we age, collagen production slows down, leaving us with less volume and the loss of that healthy, vibrant glow. PRP Therapy combines microneedling and the injection of Platelet Rich Plasma to encourage cell turnover and leave you with healthy, glowing skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma contains a high number of cell growth factors that stimulates collagen production and the growth of healthy cells. Platelets are cells within your blood that helps tissue heal and regrow. When injected into specific areas it promotes the growth of new healthy cells in the skin which stimulates collagen growth and regenerates tissue to naturally tighten and smooth the skin. This helps to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines and even out complexion.

After a simple blood draw, the plasma and platelets are separated from the other components of your blood. Once the concentration is ready it is injected in the skin with small needles. Depending on the treated area, the duration of the treatment will be 30-45 minutes. 2-3 treatments are recommended to obtain optimal results.

What to expect

Post-treatment

Following the treatment you can expect mild swelling and redness lasting around 12-24 hours. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, small pinpoint bruising can occur, lasting 2-3 days. Refrain from exercising and using a hot tub for 24 hours after the treatment.
