For many people, the prospect of having surgery for a facelift is scary. That’s why Manhattan MedSpa offers PRP facials, a minimally invasive, non-surgical alternative to enhance the quality of your skin and leave you looking years younger.
What is a PRP facial?
A PRP facial involves taking a small sample of your own blood and placing it into a machine that separates it into layers. The plasma layer, which is rich with platelets and white blood cells, is extracted from your blood sample and then injected into areas with fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in enhanced elasticity and improved tone.
How is a PRP facelift performed?
A trained technician, nurse or doctor will use a small needle to take a sample of your blood. That sample is placed into a machine that spins the blood down and separates it into layers. The plasma layer is then placed into a syringe and injected with a microneedling tool into the treatment area that you have decided on with your doctor.
How does PRP therapy work?
The platelet rich plasma that is injected is full of nutrients that stimulate the regeneration of cells beneath the surface of the skin, as well as encouraging the production of collagen. Increased collagen production will, in turn, soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun exposure, aging, and facial expressions.
How many treatments will I need?
It can take anywhere from 3-8 treatments to achieve the desired results, with 4-5 weeks in between treatments. PRP facials each take between 60-90 minutes.
Are there side effects?
Little to no side effects have been reported by those receiving PRP facials. You may experience some mild pain or swelling to the injection sites, but that usually resolves within 24 hours following your treatment.
How much does a PRP facial cost?
