PRP Facial Rejuvenation at Bion Aesthetics and Med Spa
PRP Facial Rejuvenation™ utilizes concentrated growth factors derived from the patient’s whole blood that stimulate healing and rejuvenation. Using a microneedling technique, the growth factors will be administered directly to the impacted area. During the relatively short treatment session, a numbing agent can be applied for additional comfort. Optimal results will occur within a month of treatment.
Microneedling creates micro-injuries to stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. This results in an effective remodel of scar tissue while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Microneedling is clinically shown to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars through as few as 3 affordable and non-invasive treatments 30 days apart. PRP facials use the growth factors in your own blood to assist in healing. Come see us if you are wanting to improve your skin and speed up the healing process. Microneedling also reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
Adults who are interested in natural tissue rejuvenation to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and textural irregularities are often good candidates for PRP injections. Ideal candidates are in good general health and do not smoke or drink excessively, as these habits affect the body’s ability to produce collagen and other regenerative chemicals. A PRP consultation involves a discussion about goals, a brief medical history, and details about how PRP works and what may inhibit the efficacy of this treatment.
Patients who receive PRP injections can expect both side effects and dramatic improvements. Initially, the skin may become inflamed as a result of injections. In some cases, bruising occurs. These side effects typically resolve within a week. A few weeks after PRP injections, new collagen is forming and generating new, healthy cells in the deeper layers of the skin. This may be revealed in smoother, more vibrant skin. Collagen remodeling continues for several months. With the action occurring well below the epidermis, patients may only see mild changes in their skin’s appearance in the early weeks after treatment. For a more significant cosmetic change, many patients choose to integrate microneedling into their long-term beauty regimen.
The results of PRP treatments become increasingly visible for 4 to 12 weeks. If, during this timeframe, further improvements are desired, treatment may be repeated. Depending on the degree of correction that is needed, a patient may undergo PRP microneedling or injections every 4 to 12 weeks. Once the foundation of collagen has been rebuilt, touch-ups can be performed annually or a few times a year. Maintenance continues to stimulate and nourish fibroblasts and other cells involved in tissue regeneration.
The speed at which the effects of PRP are reflected in one’s appearance may vary. Generally, patients notice a new glow to their skin within a few days of PRP microneedling or injections. This relates to the increase in circulation through the dermis and epidermis and the increase in fibroblast activity in the deeper layers of the skin. As new collagen forms, the skin becomes firmer and smoother. However, these effects occur gradually and subtly over up to 12 months.
To minimize risks, patients are advised to postpone strenuous exercise for 24 hours after PRP injections or microneedling with PRP. Strenuous exercise is described as any activity that increases heart rate to over 100 beats per minute. Additionally, patients should avoid all forms of excessive heat for 24 hours, including but not limited to hair-dryers, saunas, hot tubs, sun exposure, and hot showers or baths.
PRP injections have a long history of use in areas of medicine that focus on tissue regeneration. This organic substance harvested from a patient’s blood has provided valuable benefits in wound healing, joint injuries, and hair restoration. The safety of PRP has been well-established through years of clinical use as an independent therapy or in conjunction with other procedures.
