Why You Should Get The PRP Facial

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is well-known for its role in treating sports injuries, but the benefits of PRP aren’t limited to athletes. PRP has a number of different uses, including cosmetic ones. Here at PRP in Philadelphia, Dr. Stuart Kauffman and our team are proud to offer different non-surgical cosmetic applications of PRP, including PRP facials.

What is it like to get a PRP facial?

A PRP facial isn’t like any other facial you’ve ever had. In fact, they’ve taken the world by storm. PRP facials, sometimes called vampire facials, harness the power of your blood to take your facial to the next level. 

Before your facial, we must first prepare your PRP injection. Each PRP injection requires your own blood. If you’ve ever had a blood test or donated blood, you’re already familiar with the process. Taking a blood sample is quick and relatively painless. Just a quick pinch ― and you’re done! Once we have the sample, we run the blood through a centrifuge. This is a key step as it helps to concentrate the platelets. It’s these platelets that provide the following cosmetic benefits.

Benefits of PRP facial rejuvenation

Because PRP is made from your own blood, PRP facials are natural. No synthetic ingredients are needed, which dramatically reduces your risk of allergic reaction and negative side effects. During your facial, we re-inject your own plasma back into your skin, delivering an abundance of growth factors that stimulate your body’s natural healing response. 

The PRP in your facial can do the following:

Because PRP injections stimulate collagen production, the results of your PRP facial are long-lasting. As your body is encouraged to make more collagen, you’ll notice your skin become smoother and more radiant.

PRP facials and collagen

PRP facials can create longer lasting results because of their ability to trigger collagen production. Collagen is perhaps as close to the foundation of youth as you can get, and that’s because collagen is a major component of your skin. Collagen helps strengthen skin, improves elasticity, and supports hydration ― all of which promotes radiant, youthful-looking skin.

Because your body naturally produces less collagen as you age, PRP facials can help you turn back the hands of time. Dr. Kaufmann and his skilled team at PRP in Philadelphia specialize in using PRP therapy to enhance your skin.
