Your blood is made up of two components; blood cells and plasma. 55% of your blood is made up of plasma, a combination of water and protein that helps your blood pressure stay in a healthy range. Plasma is also responsible for transporting vital nutrients to certain parts of your body.
A highly concentrated form of plasma, enriched with platelets, describes the basis of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Professional athletes, like Tiger Woods, have used PRP injections to heal from injuries faster and get them back on the playing field.
This same practice remains with PRP facials, but it’s designed to encourage collagen regrowth and provide anti-aging properties. Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS provides PRP facials to people in Boca Raton, Florida, to revitalize their skin and boost their confidence.
How it works
A PRP facial isn’t an ordinary facial. Dr. Dardano starts your treatment by taking a blood sample from your arm. Next, he uses a centrifuge to separate the blood into components and to create the platelet-rich plasma.
Dr. Dardano applies a topical numbing cream to your face and allows it to set in for 30 minutes. Then, he gently microneedles your face, which creates tiny lesions in your skin to promote cellular turnover. While your body ramps up its collagen and elastin production, Dr. Dardano applies the PRP to your face to penetrate your pores and aid the healing process.
Love the skin you’re in
Do you look in the mirror only to see aged, lifeless skin? A PRP facial can help shed years off your appearance and give you dewy, healthy skin again.
Platelets contain growth factors that help your body heal from injury. In PRP, 5-10 times more growth factors are present, which makes it ideal for skin rejuvenation. PRP facials help rejuvenate your skin while offering these benefits:
- Restored facial volume
- Lessen the appearance of fine lines
- Address under-eye circles
- Erase sunspots
- Reduce the appearance of scars
Many patients report their results from a PRP facial last for several years. That way, you get the most out of your treatment and save money by eliminating the need for other procedures.
Many procedures that help you look younger involve nips, tucks, and long recovery times. You can feel safe and confident in getting a PRP facial because it relies solely on your body’s natural healing process. No incisions will be made during PRP, so that also means no scarring and minimal downtime. You can even return to work the following day after your treatment.
Since PRP is made from your blood, you won’t have any reactions or side effects from the procedure. PRP is a natural treatment, free of any harsh chemicals or plumping agents like many other anti-aging skincare treatments contain.
