Beauty starts with healthy skin. While exfoliating and at-home skincare offers benefits, the most noticeable way to revamp your skin uses your blood and your body’s healing properties.
A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, also called a vampire facial, involves taking a blood sample and applying it to your face to reap amazing anti-aging benefits.
By harnessing your body’s healing properties, the skincare experts at the practice of Anthony N. Dardano, located in Boca Raton, Florida, give you younger-looking skin with a PRP facial. Here we discuss the benefits so you can decide if it's right for you.
Your skin is exposed to over 700,000 toxins and chemicals daily. In this day and age, you have to be careful about what products and treatments you use. A PRP facial is an all-natural treatment that uses your body’s healing system to turn back the clock. Here’s how it works.
When you come in for your facial, Anthony N. Dardano answers any questions you may have. Next, he takes a blood sample from your arm and spins it on a centrifuge to isolate the protein-rich plasma and the platelets.
The PRP is injected into areas most susceptible to aging like:
The plasma contains proteins and nutrient-rich molecules that nourish your skin and offer some of the best benefits.
PRP plasma contains up to five times more platelets than traditional blood. Platelets are valuable because they contain a high level of growth factors — proteins that repair damaged skin cells and ramp up collagen to give you skin that looks 5-7 years younger.
PRP facials address some of the most noticeable skin concerns like:
Patients who receive a series of PRP facials — we suggest 3-6 treatments — experience the youngest-looking skin with a healthy glow.
A PRP facial can be done via injection or microneedling. We suggest going with microneedling for a two-in-one treatment with the best results. Microneedling allows PRP to be administered all over the face and neck, pushing it beneath the dermis to stimulate skin renewal.
Microneedling with PRP offers better results than just microneedling alone. The microneedling device contains tiny needles (.1 to 2.5 millimeters each) that make microscopic punctures in your skin, encouraging collagen production and elastin renewal. When you microneedle with PRP, you also improve sunspots while unclogging and minimizing the appearance of pores.
Microneedling is the perfect time to use PRP because it not only gives you better results but speeds up the downtime. While microneedling has a healing process that can last for a week, patients who microneedle with PRP are healed in 1-2 days.
The results from a PRP facial are not immediate, but they are entirely worth the wait. After one week, you’ll start to have a brighter glow on your skin. Over the next 1-2 months is when the real magic happens, and you’ll notice softer, younger, and more supple skin.
One of the best perks of a PRP facial is its long-lasting results — patients can expect results that last for up to 18 months. The results are longer than most anti-aging treatments like chemical peels, lasers, BOTOX, and fillers.
