PRP Facial in Dallas
Micropen Facial, Dermapen facial, Microneedling and PRP
What is a PRP Facial?
A PRP facial is a new cosmetic facial treatment which combines the new minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment, Microneedling (Micropen and Dermapen) and combines it with the superb healing properties of your Platelet Rich Plasma- PRP for enhanced results from your Microneedling.
The PRP Facial gained popularity in the media after Kim Kardashain talked about this treatment’s benefits in 2013. The “Kim Kardashain PRP Facial” has been touted in various national publications and blogs as the “go to celebrity facial”.
How Does The PRP Facial Work?
The unique rejuvenating/resurfacing action of the Micropen works through a process called CIT -Collagen Induction Therapy and creates controlled micro injuries to the surface of your skin which heal with collagen production in your skin for a smooth, youthful appearance.
The addition of your PRP to your Micropen treatment enhances the CIT by providing tissue and fibroblast growth factors; significantly increasing your collagen synthesis and new skin cell production. The growth factors in your PRP activate your multipotent stem cells to generate new skin cells for better, faster healing of your microwounds. The result of a PRP-Micropen combination treatment is far better than the Micropen alone; fewer fine lines, firmer, smoother skin with tighter appearing pores and a healthy youthful glow in four to six weeks following ONE PRP Facial.
How Long Does The PRP Facial Treatment Take?
The PRP facial treatment takes about 60-90 minutes to complete:
About 30 minutes of preparation- Topical numbing and preparation of your PRP
About 30-60 minutes minutes for treatment of full face, full face and neck depending on your skin needs; areas of scarring, deep wrinkles need extra attention for better results. Additional areas take longer time.
Is There Any Discomfort Associated With the PRP Facial?
We routinely apply a custom compounded topical numbing for 30 minutes prior to the PRP facial which makes the treatment very comfortable. Most of our patients describe a “buzzing sensation” during the treatment. Individual pain tolerance varies but overall the treatment is very tolerable and associated with minimum discomfort.
Is There Any Recovery Time After The PRP Facial?
You may have mild redness and mild swelling which can last 24 to 72 hours after your PRP facial. Most of our patients are able to cover up the redness with make up the next day. We prefer that you do not apply any makeup or skin products for 16-24 hours after your PRP facial treatment.
