Why PRP Facials Are Here to Stay

Eclipse PRP Henderson NVWe’ll just be right up front about microneedling: this is not a treatment that is for the faint of heart. It’s not that microneedling hurts (it doesn’t). It’s not that there are significant side effects (there aren’t). What holds most people back from getting this innovative skin-rejuvenating treatment is the misconception that it is painful and does have downtime. Here, we want to point out why microneedling with PRP is here to stay.

How Microneedling Works

Microneedling in and of itself is advantageous for individuals who are interested in taking control of their aging process. This treatment incites collagen remodeling through controlled micro-injury to the uppermost layers of the skin. Microneedling is not dermal rolling. This treatment is conducted in the clinical environment using an automated instrument with sterile microneedles on the tip. Our staff can adjust the depth of needling to accommodate the varying thickness of skin on the face and other parts of the body. As we move the “pen” over the numbed surface of the skin, microchannels are created, which invites an influx of collagen and elastin, as well as other healing chemicals, to the area. As a result, skin that is loose, wrinkled, or scarred receives an abundance of healing.

Now for PRP

PRP is platelet-rich plasma. This is a blood-derivative, so carries no risk of causing damage or adverse reaction on the skin. Some experts call PRP “liquid gold” because this fluid contains growth factors and more than 30 bioactive proteins that are integral to the body’s natural healing capabilities. During a PRP facial, our staff will apply this natural product to the skin just after the creation of microchannels. This allows healing ingredients to flood superficial wounds for an accelerated healing response.

Your PRP Facial

In our office near Las Vegas, we value patient satisfaction. PRP facials are a popular treatment that we perform carefully for the best possible results. Most patients describe the sensation of microneedling as tolerable, much like the “sandpaper” feeling of microdermabrasion. However, we understand that comfort is a priority for patients, and may even keep some from obtaining this beneficial treatment. Therefore, we offer topical numbing cream as a pre-treatment to our PRP facials.
