Whenever you realize that you are not satisfied with the appearance of your skin and you want to consider rejuvenation, you may find yourself wondering which method is the right one for you. For many people, the idea of an invasive surgery is enough to make them look for less invasive options. There are a number of non-surgical treatment options available, and they can vary significantly in their level of effectiveness. A PRP facial is one of the most effective treatments for minimizing many of the common signs of aging.
The PRP facial is an all-natural method of skin rejuvenation. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. The therapy begins when a sample of your own blood is drawn. It is then placed in a centrifuge machine that spins it until the major constituents are separated out. The platelets are then skillfully injected into the area of the skin that you want rejuvenated. This helps speed up collagen production, which will lead to tighter and smoother skin.
Collagen is a protein that your skin contains within the lower layers. It helps to keep the skin full and tight. If the collagen level drops, the skin will lose a lot of that tightness and begin to sag. Sagging will cause lines and wrinkles to form. They are typically located around the eyes and mouth and across the forehead. Collagen production naturally begins to drop off when you start to age, which is why many of those common signs of aging appear.
Since the PRP facial uses a product taken from your own blood, there is virtually no likelihood of having a negative reaction to the treatment. What is being injected back into the body was there all along, so no foreign substance is being introduced to the skin. The therapy works by concentrating the platelets in the areas where they are needed in order to help with skin rejuvenation. Collagen will begin to return to a level that more closely matches what it was before the skin became loose. Elastin production increases as well. The result is a younger look over the course of the following months, as the collagen and elastin return to peak levels.
In addition to tightening the skin, the PRP facial can also help provide an overall smoother texture with an even tone. It may help with acne scarring for those who had severe acne in the past.
