Should I Get A PRP Facial?
A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is the process where you use platelets from your own blood after microneedling to increase collagen production and improve skin elasticity. Also called “vampire facials”, this treatment is often met with a skeptically raised eyebrow from those who don’t know the full extent of its benefits. Because of that, it can be a bit difficult to find a certified professional that has the tools and expertise to commit to the procedure. Especially in the Potterville, MI area. At North44, we believe that you deserve a PRP injection that’s safe and provided by professionals that care about your health and results, no matter your location.
As always, we’re committed to the absolute safety and comfort of our patients. That means health protocols that prioritize cleanliness and only utilize FDA approved materials. This goes double for anything involving bodily fluids. As with any treatment we provide, you are guaranteed 5-star resort-style treatment. Even vampires need a break from it all once in a while, after all.
If you have any questions about PRP or how it works, don’t hesitate to give one of our experts a call.
PRP Injection Benefits
We understand that the concept of vampire facials can be a bit intimidating. A little bit of your blood with be extracted and put into a centrifuge. From there, your platelets will be separated and made into a serum that makes up your PRP injection. This helps to stimulate collagen production for lasting results.
Some of the many benefits that our patients see from their PRP facial include:
- Smaller pores
- Smoother skin
- Reduced wrinkles
- Lightening of dark spots
- Smoothing out acne pits and other blemishes
- Reducing sun damage
While results vary, you can expect the results of your treatment to last for up to two years. Not bad for a couple hours worth of work.
Before we start any work, our doctors will consult with you closely to determine your needs. We’re here to make your PRP treatment (or any cosmetic procedure), as transparent and convenient as possible.
Is The PRP Procedure Painless?
Despite being minimally invasive and having many lasting benefits, you may experience a few minor side effects in the days following your PRP procedure. While you may experience some minor bruising, redness, and itching for up to a week after treatment, there shouldn’t be any cause for concern. Just be sure to avoid strenuous activity and sunlight for up to 24 hours after your PRP facial.
As always, call your doctor if you find that your side effects are lasting longer or are more severe than expected.
How Does PRP Treatment Work?
While unusual, PRP facials aren’t any riskier than most other cosmetic procedures. It’s a therapy that’s based on known science and is incredibly safe when done by a known professional. With a low failure rate and recovery time, it’s an excellent option for any busy professional. It works on any skin type and color. Of course, it’s used on people from all across the age spectrum. Whether you’re getting ready for next week’s date night or just want to look your best, we have your back.
