PRP Facials: Everything You Need To Know

PRP Facial procedure

There are countless beauty trends out there, some mainstream, others a bit more obscure. The advancements in science, medicine and technology have impacted every area of our lives, including facial regimens. 

Here at Hair and Skin Science, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with skin care routines and treatments, so we wanted to break down everything you need to know about PRP facial.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is derived from one’s own blood so it is considered completely autologous, meaning “obtained from the same individual.”

This is important because your blood is actually very powerful and essentially this PRP process turns your own body into a self-healing machine. Plus because the treatment is sourced from an individual’s own body, the reconvey time is shortened, there is a lack of cross contamination and the body more readily accepts the treatment. 

Basically blood is taken from the arm and then in a tube it is spun at very high speeds in a centrifuge. The spinning process splits the blood into individual components. The plasma that is extracted is rich in nutrients and platelets. 

This liquid is then collected and then injected into the face. The nutrient-rich liquid stimulates healing, tightens the face and helps with skin pigmentation. It helps boost collagen production and when combined with micro needling, the blood flow is stimulated also. 

LED red light treatments are also available which help with the healing and recovery process.

What do PRP Facials help treat?

PRP facials are an ideal solution for a host of issues. 

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Uneven Skin Pigmentation
  • Tissue Repair
  • Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
  • Acne Scars
  • Dark Circles Under Eyes
  • Sagging Skin

We have blogs discussing some of these conditions further which you can check out.

Benefits of PRP Facials

Besides the fact that PRP facials can treat the above problems, there are certain benefits that make this type of treatment more beneficial than others. 

It is a completely natural treatment utilising the power of your own body and blood. There is no risk of contamination in the blood, because it is your own and your body readily accepts the treatment, again because it is your own blood being harnessed and injected.

There is little recovery time and the procedure itself is quick so it can be scheduled during your lunch break. This makes it a convenient treatment for busy people who don’t want to carve huge chunks of time out of their day.

It is also a treatment that is readily available in our clinics Australia-wide. We have helped thousands of people obtain younger looking skin and reduce skin conditions with ease. 

A PRP facial may seem like a unique treatment, but the technique has been around since the 70’s with clinics like us tapping into the effective and beneficial effects on the skin in recent years.
