The natural aging process as well as years of skin damage can lead to the formation of aging flaws, uneven skin tone, and complexion imperfections. With advances in medical and aesthetic treatments, there are now solutions available for preserving the youthful and healthy appearance of your skin. At ALC MedSpa, we offer the revolutionary PRP facial to naturally renew your complexion from the inside out.
What is PRP Facial?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that is responsible for healing and restoration within the body. The PRP facial collects the ultra-healing PRP from the patient’s own blood in order to activate the natural healing processes and collagen production within the skin. The platelet-rich plasma facial process is performed by first drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets, and then injecting them into your skin via microneedling. Celebrities have been using PRP facials for years to gain a competitive edge and keep their skin looking youthful. The result is a renewed and vibrant complexion with results that you will love!
There are many benefits that a revitalizing PRP facial can offer including
- Reduced appearance of smile lines, crow’s feet, and neck rings.
- Skin rejuvenation of the face, neck, and hands.
- Diminish that appearance of acne scars, skin depressions, and undereye hollows.
- Long-lasting results up to 18 months.
- Fine lines on the corners of the mouth
- Age spots
- No required downtime
- And more!
How Does it Work?
During an initial consultation, a personalized plan for treatment is created that is tailored to your specific skin needs and aesthetic desires. To begin, a small sample of blood is first drawn. It is then placed in a specialized centrifuge where it is rapidly spun to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. Numbing cream is applied to the surface of skin in the targeted treatment area. Once the platelet rich plasma and ultra-healing components are collected, microneedling is performed and the PRP is injected into the skin. Once delivered, the platelet rich plasma begins the healing process and collagen production is also activated. In the weeks following treatment, you can begin to notice results for smoother, firmer, and vibrant-looking skin.
Since the PRP facial is a non-invasive treatment, there is no required downtime afterwards. However, we recommend that you avoid applying make-up for 24 hours, and apply hydrating serums as needed.
