A PRP facial is a non-surgical option that can help address all these concerns and more naturally! To find out if this is the right procedure for you, keep reading!
What is a PRP facial?
A PRP facial is also known as collagen induction therapy or fibroblast induction therapy. As we age, we lose fibroblasts and consequently collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. During a regenerative facial we create micro-channels/injuries in the skin to stimulate fibroblast production to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid formation resulting in a visibly glowing appearance! Fibroblasts are the creators of collagen and elastin and help your body to heal resulting in skin tightening and firmness. This all results in noticably younger looking skin without the use of anesthesia!
To give it an extra boost, at Wave on Wave Health, we not only create micro-channels/injuries in the skin to stimulate fibroblast production, but we also penetrate the patient's own platelet rich plasma into those channels! PRP has been around for decades to heal ligaments, muscles and joints and has been proven to efficacious and safe. When penetrated into the skin, the activated platelets provide growth factors and nutrition for a longer lasting and more noticeable effect resulting in younger looking skin that keeps improving with time!
