What is PRP-Facial Rejuvenation

A ground-breaking solution to the effects of aging or damaged skin is platelet rich plasma skin rejuvenation, or PRP Facial Rejuvenation in Charlotte, Hickory, and Shelby, North Carolina. This is an anti-aging skin treatment that leaves the skin looking and feeling younger, smoother, and healthier. If you’re looking for a non-surgical, safe, and effective way to getting better-looking skin, our physicians at Piedmont Plastic Surgery & Dermatology have all the information you need.

How does the PRP-Facial Rejuvenation Work?

After your blood is drawn, a thin needle is used to inject your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) into the skin. The activated growth factors in your blood cells do their job and collagen is naturally stimulated allowing for rejuvenation of the face. Unlike fillers that use synthetic substances, PRP is derived from the patient’s own biology and activates and rejuvenates the cells in the face, causing a reduction in wrinkles, improvement in facial tone and color and reduction of pore size. Since this injectable treatment uses the patient’s own blood, there are no risks of allergic reactions. This is an ideal treatment for any patient who wants to improve volume, reduce fine lines, and improve texture of the face and neck. It’s a more natural approach than fillers which may change the shape of the face.

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines

  • Minimizing crow’s feet

Recovery from PRP-Facial Rejuvenation?

Since you will be injected with your own nutrient-rich blood, there are essentially no risks associated with PRP Facial Rejuvenation. Once your session is done, you can expect some minor bruising, puffiness and redness of the skin, which all dramatically improves within the first day or two. Your physician will discuss your aftercare to ensure that recovery goes as smoothly as possible. Most patients will have fully healed after one week. Aftercare is an important part of the healing process, something that you don’t want to overlook. Don’t rinse the PRP off your face until the morning after the procedure. This is to help ensure your skin is able to absorb all the nutrients from the plasma and guarantee the best results possible. Since the skin will be delicate for the first couple days, it is strongly advised that patients use a gentle cleanser and daily moisturizer with SPF to keep the skin hydrated. Many patients report some levels of dryness after the procedure but maintaining a gentle, but hydrating skincare regimen can help combat these issues the first couple days post-treatment. Patients are encouraged to resume their regular skin routine a week following their initial session.
