PRP, also known as platelet rich plasma, is a treatment used as a dermatological remedy on the face. PRP involves using the patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing process in the skin. PRP’s are slathered onto the face of the patient. Micro needling is then used to incur minor damage to the skin. The plasma then soaks into this skin to start the healing process and generate more collagen. PRP treatment is sometimes referred to as the “vampire facial” thanks to the light damage it incurs to the skin.
PRP is a cosmetic treatment used to treat a wide range of skin conditions. It can be particularly effective at addressing the signs of aging, including skin laxity, sagging and wrinkles. PRP can also be very effective at rejuvenating tired and dull skin. While it does require some recovery time, patients typically recover within a few days looking more refreshed and rested than before. If you would like to explore your options with this rejuvenating facial, speak with your dermatologist today about receiving PRP treatment.
