PRP facials utilize your own body's healing ability to stimulate skin recovery and smoothing.
One of the best ways to improve to look of your skin and reverse the signs of aging is to make regular deposits to your “collagen bank”. This structural protein keeps the skin firm and prevents unsightly sagging and creasing.
Collagen production slows down the older we get. A good, anti-aging skin care line is essential for day to day maintenance of collagen synthesis (see our complete line of ZO skin care products). But for optimal results, more intensive treatments that boost collagen are needed.
Lasers and microneedling stimulate the body to make collagen through mechanical means (causing an injury to the skin that must be repaired). We can also create more collagen naturally using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
What is PRP
PRP is made by spinning a tube of your own blood in a centrifuge at high speed. The clear, yellow fluid that rises to the top is rich in platelets, small blood cell fragments that make growth factors. When injected into our tissues, we can get concentrated amounts of these growth factors where they are most needed. Once injected, they get to work, growing new collagen and blood vessels.
The skin responds beautifully to this treatment. After 4-6 weeks, the skin will have improved tone, colour and texture that will last for months.
PRP can be injected all over the face with small needles, or applied after a microneedling, dermal rolling or laser peel. It is very versatile.
When combined with dermal fillers, the anti-aging effects are enhanced. The fillers add lift and volume, improve the contours of the face and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Small injections providing major results
- The doctor extracts a small amount of blood.
- This blood is centrifuged, so that only the enriched cells or blood platelets remain.
- The platelets (PRP) are then injected into the skin using an extremely fine needle.
- The enriched plasma now slowly but surely produces younger, firmer and tighter skin.
The treatment is completely safe. The major advantage of a PRP treatment is that you are treated with a natural body substance. It's as natural as it gets!
