Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facials in Tucson, AZ
The PRP facial is an innovative, state-of-the-art aesthetic treatment that uses your own growth factors – extracted from the blood – to stimulate the body’s natural rejuvenation processes to create more youthful and resilient skin.
What Does a PRP Facial Entail?
During a PRP facial, a small quantity of blood is drawn, just like during a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a special centrifuge that separates out the platelets to create a plasma that contains up to eight times the “growth factor” of whole blood. The platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is then applied back into the facial skin using ultra-fine microneedles.
How Do PRP Facials Help My Skin?
Once they’ve been microneedled in, the growth factors in the PRP penetrate the skin and naturally triggers collagen and elastin production – the protein building blocks of young, smooth, and healthy skin that give it bounce. As collagen and elastin production increases and skin cells regenerate, wrinkles and lines are smoothed, while skin tightness, tone, and elasticity improve. The result is a dramatically younger appearance.
