PRP is derived from your blood. It contains only the cells and other components from your blood that help heal your injuries.
To get the PRP for your treatment, your provider draws some blood from your arm and places the sample in a twirling mechanism called a centrifuge.
The spinning causes it to separate into layers, one of which is full of platelets — the cells that help clot your blood and regenerate tissue. It is mixed with your plasma — the liquid base of your blood.
PRP facials are growing in popularity in cosmetic medicine. The procedure might sound unusual at first, but an increasing number of men and women are adding it to their skin care routines.
During a PRP facial at Portland Clinic of Holistic Health, your provider first microneedles the skin on your face. Microneedling — a popular skin care procedure — promotes skin healing, regeneration, and tightening by creating tiny injuries on the surface of your skin.
Next, they apply the PRP from your own body across your skin or inject small amounts into your face. PRP is said to accelerate the healing process already set into effect with the microneedling.
Together, the microneedling and the PRP application result in gorgeous, glowing skin with fewer blemishes of all kinds.
PRP facials aim to improve your skin and make it glow, regardless of your age or the starting state of your complexion. With a PRP facial, you can reduce common blemishes and imperfect features like:
The needlepoint holes from the microneedling are so minimal that you won’t need to take time to recover from the procedure. The effect improves over time, peaking with maximum results in a matter of a few weeks.
