Platelet-Rich Plasma is one of the more natural options available throughout medicine today, especially when compared to certain cosmetic surgeries. The facial rejuvenation features one of the shorter procedure times, only lasting up to 1 hour per session. The Forever Young with PRP Facial at Tampa Bay Hair Restoration is a non-invasive procedure that does not require any scalpels or suturing. Although no anesthesia is required, a topical anesthetic will be used to ensure the most comfortable and relaxing experience for our patients. Most patients report little to no pain during and after the PRP + Microneedling Treatment. This offers a virtually pain-free experience to those looking to regenerate rather than operate.
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
1. Blood Draw
The Platelet-Rich Plasma is taken from the patient’s own blood with a simple blood draw. Just a small sample of blood is required to perform the procedure.
Blood is derived of red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The centrifuge, or machine that separates different densities within a liquid, will be used to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood product.
Collagen Induction Therapy, or Microneedling, involves lightly puncturing the surface of the skin with an instrument that has very tiny needles. This helps rebuild the skin by further stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
4. Application of PRP & Collagen Mask
PRP and collagen will then be applied directly to the skin. The PRP and collagen mask is absorbed through the skin to allow for deeper penetration and further cellular rejuvenation.
