One of the most exciting new advancements in aesthetics is the use of regenerative medicine to improve your skin quality, giving your face a youthful look and feel. At SUWellness & Aesthetics, we are pleased to offer this to patients who are looking for an effective new way to treat marks, scars, and wrinkles on their face.
A PRP Facial begins by applying numbing cream on your face to reduce any potential discomfort. Your blood is drawn, which is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood from the plasma, concentrating the platelets within. Plasma contains platelets or growth factors that help your body regenerate, repair, and recover tissue. Once the plasma is extracted, it is dripped and massaged onto your face after the skin rejuvenation laser treatment (1540) has been performed by our aesthetician.
Your face will look slightly pink and feel as if you were sunburned. This is normal and it will return your skin to normal appearance within 24 to 74 hours. During this time, it’s recommended not to resume your skincare regimen and to be gentle with your face instead.
The platelet rich plasma sinks into the open channels created by the laser which stimulates your body’s collagen production to accelerate repair and recovery. This is ideal for the treatment of any visible scars, wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, inconsistent skin texture, and large pores, as collagen production can help return your skin quality to a younger and more vibrant look.
To get the most out of the PRP Facial’s collagen production potential, the best results are obtained with one session per month over three months.
