Do you want bright, wrinkle-free and healthy looking skin? Of course you do! Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facials stimulate your body’s self-healing mechanism by using your own blood to regenerate your skin cells and boost collagen. This invigorating therapy reduces redness and aging, reverses sun damage, clears acne-prone skin and evens out skin tone! The science behind PRP facials (discussed below) as a natural way to boost skin health proves its efficacy.
Why does RHMC use it for our patients?
A PRP regenerative facial uses your own platelet-rich plasma and a micro-needling devise that is a safe and effective medical procedure for treating fine lines, wrinkles, scars and hyperpigmentation. The use of a natural biological substance has proven to be an extremely effective alternative to conventional pharmacological treatments for more than 10 years, without the side effects or worry of toxicity.
After just one treatment you will see visible results to your skin health; however, these effects improve with every procedure, with increased turnover of skin cells and collagen deposition leading to new tissue growth. Your skin will be rejuvenated, increase in thickness and tissue will repair itself.
The Science Behind PRP Facials
Now that you know that the PRP facials use your own platelets to rejuvenate your facial tissue, you may be wondering, what is it about the serum that makes it such a powerful healing agent? Your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. The platelets contain your body’s growth factors, which give your skin the ability to naturally increase elastin and collagen as well as antioxidants and hydration. Once your blood is processed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood, your skilled naturopathic medical doctor will inject the PRP into your skin in order to promote cell turnover and increase regeneration of your skin.
There have been numerous studies in peer-reviewed medical journals to prove the efficacy of this procedure, especially confirming tissue remodeling in aged skin and in healing scars. Another article by E. Elghblawi cites,“ PRP increases dermal collagen levels not only by growth factors, but also by skin needling. PRP application could be considered as an effective and safety procedure for skin rejuvenation and skin thickness.” Many other studies can also be found on the National Institutes of Health Website.
