Everything You Need to Know About the PRP Facial Treatment

When it comes to facial treatments, there’s no shortage of options for those who are looking to enhance their skin’s appearance. If you keep up with celebs on Instagram, you’ve heard of the innovative facial treatment called the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facial treatment, or by its better-known name: the Vampire facial.

The most intriguing part of this procedure is that it uses your own plasma to treat skin concerns. Although it has been around for years, it started getting attention after both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian got the treatment.

While it may sound drastic to try to revitalize your skin by covering it with blood, there is some evidence that platelet-rich plasma facials offer dermatological benefits in terms of reducing the visibility of fine lines and scars and promoting a more radiant and youthful complexion.

If you’re thinking of getting the PRP facial in Las Vegas or Henderson, make sure you read up about the procedure before booking an appointment. Read on for answers to all your burning questions about this treatment.

What is a PRP facial?

A Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial, or the Vampire facial, is a facial treatment that makes use of the platelets and plasma in your skin. It’s a quick process where your own PRP is applied to your face and injected into the skin using microneedles. This is where it releases its naturally occurring molecules.

After the plasma has been injected, it immediately begins to rejuvenate the face by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and bringing a natural glow to the skin. This happens because the active chemical components of PRP promote collagen development.

Although getting a facial might be a one-time thing for some clients, others get this treatment regularly. The results of a PRP facial typically last between three and six months but can last longer if you get the procedure frequently.

What’s the recovery time for this procedure?

Following a PRP facial, you may feel some sensitivity and redness in the short term. After four to six days, this normally goes away. After the treatment, most patients feel well enough to drive themselves home and return to their regular routines the next day.

We often suggest our clients take a break from cosmetics and other skin care products that are too harsh for a bit, so the skin has time to heal. It’s also important to use sunscreen and stay out of the sun as much as possible to keep the skin healthy and youthful throughout the recovery period.

What kind of results can you expect? How long do they last?

Results may take some time to appear, especially after the initial session. However, within a few days, most of our clients report seeing their skin tightening more evenly. They also note that the skin gets a natural fullness and radiance and a generally healthier appearance.

The results can last for months. Many patients who have had success with PRP facials for anti-aging purposes continue to repeat the procedure several times a year. For optimal results, it’s recommended to have around 4-6 sessions spaced about two weeks apart to address scars, skin irritation, and trouble spots.

Who should get the PRP facial treatment?

Anyone worried about the visible signs of skin elasticity and volume loss should consider the PRP facial. It is also an effective way of encouraging your skin cells to regenerate and seem younger and healthier. It is especially helpful for the sensitive area around the eyes, where many clients first see the effects of aging. It’s also applied to sun-damaged skin to improve its structural health and overall appearance.

Are there any risks or side effects involved?

When administered by a trained medical expert, the risks associated with platelet-rich plasma facials are minimal. You may experience mild, temporary reactions, including redness, swelling, and irritation.

Anyone with a history of bleeding problems, blood clotting issues, or any other blood condition should avoid getting a PRP facial. Since the procedure is invasive to some extent, it may cause bleeding and scarring. Talk to a licensed skin specialist about your medical history and any skin concerns in detail to make sure you’re the right candidate for this procedure.
