FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH PRP
Facials are no longer seen as a decadent indulgence, as advances in medical technology have not only made them affordable for more people, but the health benefits resulting from facials have also improved, making these procedures more desirable for more people.
By using and combining a few plasma facial rejuvenation treatment methods, Solana’s licensed estheticians can administer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for several different skin types.
Plasma facial rejuvenation is designed to give an enhanced anti-aging and healing benefit to the skin, leaving you feeling and looking younger.
A PRP facial, which is also known as a vampire facial, is a non-surgical procedure that’s meant to improve the quality of skin by rejuvenating it from the inside out.
The treatment causes the skin to tighten, and ultimately smooth out, leaving you looking like a younger version of yourself.
Achieving the skin health benefits of a PRP facial requires the esthetician to draw your blood. There are four main components that make up your blood, and they are red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets.
Platelets are the key to plasma facial rejuvenations, and Solana’s licensed estheticians use trusted medical procedures to isolate and concentrate your platelets.
By removing red and white blood cells from your blood sample, the esthetician is able to ensure that your remaining plasma has a high concentration of platelets, which have an extraordinary healing effect on your skin.
Solana’s estheticians do this by extracting a small amount of your own blood, and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the red blood cells.
After a topical numbing cream has been applied, the PRP is injected into specific areas in the face with a small needle.
These injections will occur at various parts of your face, and at different depths, depending on where the treatment is needed.
Platelets are a magical creation of the body, and they are the “first responders” to clot blood and accelerate healing when a wound in the body occurs.
PRP is rich with proteins and growth factors that signal stem cells to increase blood flow and generate healthy tissue.
This facial therapy method takes advantage of your body’s natural healing methods for a process your body embraces.
PRP can be used in conjunction with several treatments to give an enhanced anti-aging and healing benefit to the skin.
Because of the healing properties of plasma in facial rejuvenation, recovery time for these procedures is extremely short.
- Microneedling – Microneedling sees injections of PRP at one or more areas of your face that need treatment. This speeds up the collagen production process, making your skin tighter and smoother.
- Dermal Filler injectable treatments – Dermal Fillers are typically used where skin is more inconsistent, such as where there are lines, wrinkles or bumps. The dermal fillers allow the PRP to stay in the tissues longer, allowing the healing properties and growth factors to regenerate new tissue.
To achieve the full benefits of plasma facial rejuvenation facials, Solana recommends a series of 3-4 treatments, followed by 1-2 maintenance treatments every year.
