Everything your skin needs for rejuvenation is already pumping through your veins. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains all the nutrients and skin-building components needed for firmer, plumper, healthier skin, and you can get virtually risk-free facial plasma injections at Rejuvenate Spa NY in the Bronx.
History Of PRP For Facial Rejuvenation
Platelet-rich plasma was developed in the 1970s but did not gain popularity in esthetics until the 1990s when the benefits all-natural growth factors and collagen for facial rejuvenation were realized.
The Facial Plasma Treatment Process
Facial plasma treatment can sound intimidating for new clients, but the process is relatively simple. The procedure involves:
- Drawing blood and separating the plasma-rich plasma from the cells
- Numbing the area to be treated
- Applying the PRP to prepared areas
The process is virtually painless and is done in about an hour. There is little recovery time, and we make sure clients know how to care for their skin after the treatment.
PRP treatment is performed in a series of three sessions with each session scheduled four weeks apart.
What To Expect During PRP Treatment
PRP involves local injections, which can cause mild discomfort, swelling and/or bruising, but any effects fade in one to three days. Results begin to show three to four weeks after the treatment, and skin’s texture and tone continue to improve as the PRP stimulates collagen production and new cell growth. With proper at-home care, results can last up to three months!
