As we age, our skin undergoes various changes, which can be addressed by PRP facials. These facials are popular in cosmetics because they aid in wound healing. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, which helps in the formation and release of growth factors and active proteins that promote healing. At Alluring Age, we use PRP to encourage collagen growth and can also inject it to heal joints in the knees, ankles, and elbows to improve joint pain.
The PRP procedure is a medical procedure, not a cosmetic one. The practitioner takes a blood sample and isolates protein-rich plasma and platelets to create PRP. Using a centrifuge; the plasma is spun to extract the platelets, creating platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The high levels of growth factors in the PRP help the body heal.
There are two options for the PRP facial. The first option involves spreading plasma on the face and then using micro-needling to help the face absorb the proteins. Micro-needling creates superficial, tiny holes using sterile needles. Both the micro-needling and the PRP stimulate collagen growth. The second option, called the vampire facial, involves injecting the plasma into the skin like a filler. This addresses the skin problem beneath and on top of the skin.
The PRP facial is beneficial for those with wrinkles, sun damage, or scars. Placing PRP back into the skin encourages cell proliferation, leading to an increase in elastin and collagen production. The result is tighter, fuller, and smoother skin. In addition, we may use hyaluronic acid fillers or neuromodulators for deeper wrinkles and lines. These can be used together to treat the entire face.
Although the PRP procedure is safe, there may be some pain, swelling, or bruising afterward. Additionally, we handle PRP as a blood product under strict sterility conditions to prevent infection. Furthermore, we utilize collagen-producing peptides along with PRP and other aesthetic procedures to give you the best possible results. At Alluring Age, we are committed to taking your well-being and aesthetics to an entirely different level.
