What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma, PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facials are a revolutionary new procedure that use your own blood to restore hair loss and revitalize your skin. Platelets in your blood contain high levels of growth factors that stimulate cellular turnover when introduced into the skin of your face. We use PRP to boost collagen and elastin production, infuse the skin with hydration and antioxidants, and treat conditions like premature wrinkles, sun damage or skin tone issues. Now, our team at Bloom Med Spa is happy to offer this revolutionary treatment to the Ventura County community.
How Does PRP Work?
PRP takes traditional microneedling to the next level by using it to infuse your own platelets in order to rejuvenate your skin. Once introduced, the PRP goes to work by stimulating collagen production in the targeted areas of your skin. This process effectively helps reduce wrinkles, induce firmness, and introduce the appearance of smoother, fresher, firmer, and younger skin.
What Is a PRP Facial at Bloom Med Spa Like?
In our comfortable procedure room, our medical team will begin by first extracting a very small amount of blood for use in the treatment. We will then put that blood into a centrifuge machine in order to separate the needed platelets. After a skin cleansing exfoliation treatment, we then apply the PRP through a gentle microneedling process. This process stimulates the skin while infusing it with your platelets, encouraging it to heal in a firmer, more youthful way. Finally, we add a soothing mask to hydrate and comfort your skin while speeding up healing.
A PRP facial is a facial treatment that works by using the body’s own natural cell systems to rejuvenate your skin. During a PRP facial, we extract your own blood platelets and infuse them into your facial skin. We perform this process using advanced microneedling techniques to minimize discomfort and maximize results.
What Can I Expect From PRP?
The entire PRP treatment process takes about an hour. After your visit, you can expect to feel and look like you have a sunburn for about a day. During this time, it is recommended that you keep your face out of the sun as much as possible. While you may see results from this treatment right away, we find that multiple sessions are often needed to produce optimal results. With each procedure, spaced about 1-2 months apart, you will see more and more improvement.
What Happens After a PRP Facial at Bloom Med Spa?
After your PRP facial is complete, you can expect redness and some tenderness similar to a sunburn for about 24 hours. We recommend that you stay out of the sun for this period to prevent yourself from exacerbating the condition. Once the redness goes down, you should be able to notice your renewed skin right away. We recommend 4-6 treatments, each at least one week apart, for optimal results.
