The body has the ability to perform incredible tissue repair and healing. The blood contains many of the needed components to repair skin and tissue, but these factors are not concentrated or directly released to specific areas unless there is a wound. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is made from the blood and concentrates these healing components, which can be used for improving the health and beauty of the skin. As part of our med spa services at Timeless MedSpa NYC, we offer a PRP facial at our UES clinic.
Platelet-rich plasma is created from a patient’s own blood. We take a small sample of blood and filter it through a centrifuge to remove the platelets and form the PRP. The PRP is purified, and then can be injected into the skin for a PRP facial. One of the many benefits of PRP is that it is completely natural and biologically-compatible with no adverse reactions or side effects.
Benefits of Facial PRP Injections
PRP has been used in medical applications for decades for its healing properties. Introducing PRP to tissue can initiate repair, including the skin. PRP facials have been called “vampire facials” due to the use of blood, but the blood is introduced to the skin through injections. The PRP facials can be very beneficial as an anti-aging treatment. Some of the benefits of facial PRP injections include:
- Reduced lines and wrinkles
- Increased collagen
- Improved tone and texture
- Firmer skin
- Reduced acne scarring
- Reduced pore size
PRP injections are often combined with micro needling for synergistic benefits. Micro needling also increases collagen production and helps deliver the PRP injections deep into the layers of the skin. A PRP facial with micro needling can be completed in a series of treatments, improving the skin appearance naturally over several weeks for long-lasting and natural results.
If you have noticed signs of aging like lines, wrinkles or duller skin, a PRP facial may be an option to rejuvenate your skin’s appearance. To learn more about platelet-rich plasma injections, contact us at Timeless MedSpa NYC. We can schedule a PRP facial or consultation at our UES clinic.
