Whether you have lost weight, and therefore fat, in your face, or the birthday candles on your cake are increasing, at a certain point, we all can start to see the skin on our face sag. Since sagging skin can make us appear older or more tired, most people try out different methods to remedy that appearance.
One of the newer ways to tighten your skin is PRP treatments — but the question is, do they really work? Yes, here’s how:
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. PRP treatments work by using the healing properties found in your own blood to generate new cell growth in your skin.* Upon beginning your treatment, your practitioner will draw a small vial of your blood and put it into a centrifuge to separate platelets from the rest of your blood.
Once the platelets are separated, the special mixture, with its harnessed growth factors, is injected back into your skin to treat sagging.
Combining PRP & Microneedling
You’ve likely seen a number of celebrities getting facials while having blood spread over their face. These facials combine PRP therapy with microneedling to really help promote healing and help tighten your skin. When the microneedling pen slightly wounds your skin, it helps the PRP solution get deeper into your skin so it can work better.
So They Work?
Yes! PRP treatments have seen great success in promoting healthy skin growth that helps tighten your skin and give you a more youthful appearance.* The best part is that unlike more drastic procedures, PRP treatments are non-invasive and very safe since they use your own blood to promote healing.
