Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation
Cosmetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation is a leading edge cosmetic procedure to naturally reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars and improve the tone of your skin. Cosmetic PRP uses platelets and growth factors derived from your own blood to stimulate new collagen, blood vessels and regenerate tissue to help reverse the signs of aging.
Before scheduling treatment you will have a consultation to answer any questions, and discuss your goals and expected results. On the day of treatment you will arrive first for a quick blood draw performed by one of our experienced lab technicians. Your blood is then processed using a specialized centrifuge to separate the platelet rich portion from the rest of the blood. You will spend approximately 15 minutes in the lab after which you will move to a comfortable treatment room in the Integrative Naturopathic Spa.
The area being treated is numbed for comfort prior to the treatment by using both injectable and topical anaesthetics. The platelet rich plasma is then injected back into the face, concentrating on areas of concern. This part of the treatment takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
After the injections, you will rest comfortably during which time we will apply a natural inflammatory cream to help minimize bruising and swelling. Mineral make-up application is offered if desired.
A follow-up will be scheduled for one week after your treatment to monitor your progress and healing process, and address any questions or concerns.
What Can I Expect After The Treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, you should expect some redness and swelling around injection sites and for some, mild to moderate bruising.
Over the next few days, redness, inflammation and bruising are commonly present. This can last for 48 hours up to 1 week.
When Can I See the Results of Cosmetic PRP?
Results of the Cosmetic PRP can typically start to be seen within the first two to three weeks. There is a gradual improvement in texture, tone and softening of wrinkles and fine lines over the next 6-12 months.
Most clients benefit from two sessions of PRP within the first 12 months of treatment. In addition, there are other services and products available at the Integrative Naturopathic Spa that can increase the effectiveness of Cosmetic PRP. Integrative Naturopathic Spa also offers hyaluronic acid fillers as an option to be used 2-3 weeks after Cosmetic PRP if an immediate filling effect is desired.
