Hollywood always tells us the innovative treatments they use to defy the natural aging process and achieve their infamous healthy, radiant skin, and the PRP facial is at the top of the list.

Read on to find out more about this versatile treatment and how it can benefit you!
What is a PRP facial?
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is naturally found in our blood. PRP is a regenerative substance that can promote healing, new tissue growth, and skin restoration. When injected into the skin, PRP can promote collagen growth, elasticity, and tightening effects. Because PRP naturally comes from your own body there is no risk of adverse reactions like allergies. For some, this makes PRP therapy an appealing option as it is all natural and does not involve any chemicals.
PRP in Houston is effective at treating:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Volume loss
- Skin damage
- Stretch marks
- Bags around the eyes
- Uneven texture
- And more!
What is the treatment like?
Before your treatment we will take a small amount of blood from your arm and prepare your face with a numbing cream. From there, the blood is placed into a centrifuge which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. In many cases, we put the blood in the centrifuge several times to get the most concentrated form of PRP for best results. One of our staff members will evaluate your skin and talk to you about the results you want to determine where we should target the injections.
One of our injectors will then inject the collected PRP through a small needle into the target area(s). Most patients do not find the treatment uncomfortable*. The PRP treatment in Houston takes around 45 minutes to an hour depending on the areas treated.
Side effects are generally minimal*. However, some patients experience swelling or bruising at the injection site. Side effects usually resolve quickly following treatment.
What are results like?*
Because PRP acts on your body’s collagen production, many patients report seeing the best results after 3 to 4 weeks. Furthermore, results are lasting with some patients seeing results up to a year or more. To maintain results, we always recommend that our Houston patients get touch up treatments.
