Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Facial in Denver, CO
How does a PRP facial work?
We start by drawing your blood and isolating PRP. Next, we use a micro-needling pen or laser resurfacing to prepare the surface of the skin for maximum absorption of PRP. We then apply PRP over the treatment areas for deep PRP penetration while boosting your skin’s natural healing ability. This combination is what makes the PRP facial so powerful, revealing a smoother, brighter, younger-looking complexion.
How long does a PRP facial take?
The entire treatment takes approximately 60 minutes.
How long until I see results?
Results will appear a few weeks after treatment, with continued improvements over several months. To achieve optimal results, several treatments may be needed.
How long does a PRP facial last?
Your fresh complexion will continuously improve in the months following your treatment, and can last up to two years, depending on your body’s unique response.
Are PRP facials painful?
If you’ve ever had blood drawn, you’ll know that there can be a quick sting at the site of injection. This discomfort lasts for only a second or two. For micro-needling and laser skin resurfacing, a topical anesthetic is first applied to ensure your comfort throughout treatment.
Is there any downtime with a PRP facial?
You will experience redness following treatment, which is normal and should subside within a day or two following treatment. You may then notice a sandpaper texture to your skin, which will soften and gradually slough off to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Are there any side effects?
PRP is an extremely safe treatment because it is made from your own blood, so there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or other adverse side effects. Some patients may experience a sunburn feeling immediately following treatment, but this sensation typically resolves itself within a few hours to days.
What’s the difference between a PRP facelift and a PRP facial?
The PRP facelift is a series of injections with dermal fillers and PRP. The PRP facial combines micro-needling or laser skin resurfacing with the topical application of PRP for a synergistic boost of revitalizing benefits.
