It’s not a crime to want youthful looking skin, but it may as well be considered a crime to settle for subpar skin treatments that don’t deliver the results you’re looking for. Whether your skin is starting to thin and wrinkle or you’re just trying to stay ahead of the aging process, platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin treatments — also called PRP/PRF — offer a great solution to keep you looking youthful for years to come.
Learn more about all the skin rejuvenation benefits that a PRP/PRF facial has to offer, and schedule an appointment at our medical spa at Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa to experience transformative skin rejuvenation that lasts.
Natural Skin Rejuvenation
One of the best parts about a PRP/PRF treatment is that we utilize your body’s own ability to heal itself as the source of treatment. Using plasma sourced from you — and only you — we apply the PRP/PRF masque to your face.
Instead of chemicals or fillers that have potential side effects, the only ingredients we are using come directly from you. The growth factors and proteins in the plasma are compatible with your body because they’re taken from your body. Once applied to your face, these growth factors and proteins stimulate collagen and elastin reproduction for tighter, smoother skin.
While results develop over a period of time as your body starts to produce more collagen and elastin, you will notice that your skin starts to look smoother and feel more firm right away. That’s because, when paired with a microneedling session, PRP/PRF treatments trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms to make repairs to the collagen and elastin in your skin. Effectively, reversing the clock, as the saying goes!.
It only gets better from there. Over time, and as you continue to receive PRP/PRF treatments, you will notice your skin becoming smoother, more firm, and tighter at a faster rate.
The beauty of PRP/PRF treatments is that they target a lot of different skin issues. Since growth factors are encouraging new, healthy tissue growth, you’ll notice that your skin is smoother, softer, and more firm, but you will also notice that brown spots disappear, acne scars are less noticeable, and sun damage is practically erased.
While other skin rejuvenation treatments may only target wrinkles and fine lines, PRP/PRF treatments focus on the overall health of your skin to go above and beyond what other procedures are capable of.
Gentle & Flexible
There are some areas on the face that simply can’t be touched by other skin rejuvenation treatments. The risk of further damaging the skin is too great because of how delicate the skin is or how difficult it is to reach these areas.
Unfortunately, these are the areas that start to show the signs of aging first, like around the eyes. With limitations to so many treatments, they can’t offer total skin rejuvenation. PRP and PRF, on the other hand, are safe to apply around the eyes and in difficult-to-reach spots. With this type of treatment, you’ll truly be able to see results on all areas of your face.
Not only are PRP/PRF treatments natural and effective, but they’re also safe. Since the serum contains natural properties that your body produces, you won’t have a negative reaction to it.
This type of treatment isn’t new, either. While it’s only recently gained popularity in medical spas, PRP/PRF treatments have been used in hospitals and in sports medicine since the 1970s. With decades of research and successful treatments, you can trust that a PRP/PRF treatment will be safely administered with little-to-no risk.
We mentioned that you’ll see instant results from a PRP/PRF treatment, but you’ll also experience long-lasting results as your body continues to produce more collagen and elastin to keep your skin looking and feeling healthier.
The results may take from three to four weeks to fully take effect, but after that, you’ll be able to enjoy rejuvenated skin for 12 to 18 months after the treatment. Many people continue with a second and third session of treatment as well to compound the benefits for skin rejuvenation that lasts even longer. It’s also common for patients to make appointments every year or so to maintain their results.
PRP/PRF treatments may sound intense and invasive, but they’re actually easy to perform and have little-to-no downtime afterward. If you’re interested in these amazing benefits, contact Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria today to schedule a consultation for a PRP/PRF facial.
