Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy offers a non-surgical alternative to smoothing wrinkles, tightening skin, and improving skin tone. You may have heard it referred to as the “vampire facial,” made famous by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, but it’s actually a very safe and effective skin rejuvenation procedure, designed to hydrate, increase collagen and elastin, and bring antioxidants to the surface. Trust us, your skin will thank you later.
At SkinSpirit, we offer treatment at all eight of our clinics in Northern California and metro Seattle, including Mill Valley, Palo Alto, San Francisco, Bellevue, and more. To learn more about what PRP therapy can do for you, please call us at (855) 383-7546 or book your complimentary consultation online.
What Is PRP Skin Rejuvenation & How Does It Work?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains growth factors, stem cells and platelets known to aid in healing skin and producing new skin cells. By injecting PRP into the skin, the treatment allows your body’s natural growth factors and stem cells to repair the micro-injuries created and heal the skin. This provides natural results without a major risk for side effects.
Combining PRP with other resurfacing treatments can be a way to enhance results.
The SkinSpirit Experience
At SkinSpirit, we administer PRP through the Aquagold Microchannel device. The Aquagold device creates the micro-channels in the skin while injecting it with Platelet Rich Plasma.
When you come in for your PRP injection, your expert medical provider at SkinSpirit will:
- Draw your blood through a special collection tube and place it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood separating the different components within it to allow your practitioner to extract out the PRP.
- Using an Aquagold device, they can then inject PRP into areas of the face, neck and décolletage.
Most people can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after their treatment. The total healing time depends on the emphasis of the treatment. On average, the skin might be pink one to three days after the treatment.
Once the pinkness subsides, PRP skin rejuvenation will enhance the skin tone and texture. Visible changes in the skin develop several weeks after treatment. Results continue to improve up to six months after the original treatment, as collagen production continues over time.
