What Is Facial Plasma Treatment?

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Most women begin to experience their first signs of aging in their twenties. About 20 percent of those with acne will suffer from acne scarring in their lifetime.

Insecurities about skin conditions can wreak havoc on our self-esteem no matter what age we are.

It's normal to feel stress when you start to see more and more tell-tale signs of aging around the eyes and mouth. But you should know that there is no need to feel any more anxiety about those fine lines, wrinkles, or acne scarring you are noticing in the mirror.

A facial plasma treatment can help significantly reduce the look of aging and provide much relief to chronic pain conditions and acne scarring.

We've outlined everything you need to know about this facial treatment below.

What is a PRP Facial?

A PRP facial is a platelet rich plasma facial. To put it simply, it uses your own blood's plasma to effectively stimulate your skin and give you a glowing complexion and minimize pores.

The actual process of a PRP facial is a little more complex. Let's dive into how it actually works.

Blood is first safely drawn from your own arm. Your blood is run through a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells.

The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the skin through microneedling or with a syringe.

PRP facials are a fantastic way to naturally heal your skin and other chronic conditions you may experience. It does this by creating a healthy inflammatory response to regenerate tissue, collagen, and other restorative properties in your immune system.

PRP facials are growing in popularity with everyone from celebrities and models to the average American doing them to keep their skin looking younger and fresher for longer.

What Are the Benefits of a Facial Plasma Treatment?

Platelet rich plasma treatments are incredibly healing treatments for many conditions. They have been used by orthopedic surgeons and for healing wounds.  

There are so many benefits for those who choose to get PRP facials. Here's what they can do for your face and skin conditions.

Treats Wrinkles and Fine Lines

One of the primary reasons PRP facials are so popular is their effectiveness in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, deep creases, and other skin sagging.

PRP facials do more than just reduce the signs of aging. If you suffer from any acne or surgical scarring, PRP facials can benefit you by lessening the appearance of these facial scars through new skin cell production.

Reduced Risk of Allergic Reaction

A big fear for many men and women before they go in for a facial treatment is that they will have an allergic reaction to any one of the varieties of serums, creams, or dermal filler materials used during the treatment.

A great benefit of platelet rich plasma facial treatments is that it uses your own blood and plasma as the primary ingredient.

It is highly unlikely that you will experience an allergic reaction to your own blood, making PRP facials one of the most natural and desirable facials available on the market.

Rejuvenates and Restores Skin

PRP facials are becoming a popular alternative to fillers thanks to its ability to restore and rejuvenate the skin more naturally.

When injected into the face, the platelet rich plasma helps to promote collagen production to rejuvenate the skin naturally over time. It promotes new cell growth to help keep your skin looking naturally younger and smoother for longer.

Long Lasting Effects

While the procedure itself is relatively short - about 20 to 45 minutes depending on the provider - the effects of PRP facials last for a long time. They can last anywhere up to 18 months or more before you need to go in for another treatment.

What Can You Expect From a Facial Plasma Treatment?

Platelet rich plasma facials are extremely effective. It is a great alternative to surgery for those also looking for pain relief for their chronic conditions.

You can expect to see some redness and feel some tingling following a PRP facial. That is completely normal and will fade after a couple of hours.

You can expect to see a difference between PRP facials and facial fillers. PRP facials are different because they target the root cause rather than the symptom.

Fillers will immediately correct an area of your face with wrinkles, sags, or fine lines directly while PRP facials will correct what is causing the signs of aging.

Fillers will also fade faster than the effects of a PRP facial, making it the ideal solution for those who do not like to go in frequently for treatments.

What is the Cost of a Facial Plasma Treatment?

Platelet rich plasma facials can be a couple for a few hundred dollars, depending on where you go to receive it.

However, the long term costs you can save by not having to go in for frequent treatments and buying skin products make this a cost effective treatment for your facial needs.
