PRP Facial in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ
At Spine & Joint Center in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, our doctors now offer aesthetic services to help patients look and feel their best without losing their natural glow. One of our treatment plans for triggering collagen production in the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, soften acne scars, plus improve skin tone and texture is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial. A PRP facial is a safe and effective way to heal the skin by taking a blood sample from the forearm and isolating the protein-rich plasma and platelets to create the PRP. One of our doctors then injects the PRP into the face via a micro-needling procedure to stimulate collagen growth and restore volume to the face that has diminished from aging.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial: Explained
A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial uses a combination of your platelet-rich plasma and micro-needling to deliver what's earned a reputation as the "vampire facial." At Spine & Joint Center in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, our doctors recommend this service to combat the signs of aging in a safe, fast, and effective way. A PRP facial deeply penetrates to tighten the skin, improves its strength and thickness, and increases moisture retention while unclogging pores. Before the procedure begins, our doctor will numb the face, remove a small amount of blood, and centrifuge (spin) it to separate plasma from red blood cells before micro-needling focus areas. Patients who meet the criteria can expect results in four to six weeks and must avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and saunas for at least 72 hours post-treatment.
