3. Why PRP than any other treatment?
4. Does It Hurt?
5. How does it work?
Average blood has a platelet concentration of about 200,000 per microliter. The Platelet Rich Plasma can exceed 2 million platelets per microliter. By injecting the PRP into the treated areas, we are not only providing an area with little vascular support nutrients but also 10x the average amount. This leads to a decrease in pain, decrease in healing time, and increase the integrity of the structures.
When the PRP is injected into the body, the inflammation causes some cells in the area to be damaged. When these cells are damaged, they release cytokines. Cytokines are messengers to the body that something has gone wrong, and that growth factors and stem cells should be brought to the area to heal the damage. In this sense, PRP not only gives direct support through the platelets in growth factors in the solution, but it encourages the body to remodel the site that has been injected.

PRP FACIALS FAQ’S
1. What is it? How does it work?
We draw your blood and process it to extract the growth factors and collagen building cells. Those cells are placed over the face and a micro needling pen is used to place those cells in the dermis layer of the skin.
The combination of the growth factors and cells combined with the micro needling process tell the skin to build collagen from the bottom up, smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections.
