PRP Treatment Q & A

What are PRP facials?

A platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is a cutting-edge treatment Dr. Hera can use to treat wrinkles and scars on your face, neck, and hands.

The technique uses your own blood, which is why the procedure is often referred to as a vampire facial. During treatment, Dr. Hera processes the blood in a centrifuge to draw out the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. It’s this plasma Dr. Hera injects back into your face, hands, or neck to rejuvenate your skin and give you a younger, smoother, natural look.

The platelets contain growth factors that aid in the regeneration of skin cells. This benefits your skin in several ways, including:

  • Improved facial volume
  • Enhanced skin texture
  • Minimized wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduction in appearance of acne scars

Dr. Hera can determine if PRP facial treatments are right for you based on your medical history and your aesthetic goals.

What can I expect during a PRP facial?

Dr. Hera ensures you are comfortable throughout the procedure and can apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. There is time needed to process your blood, but the reinjection of PRP takes less than 30 minutes.

Following the injections, you can expect to return to your normal activities without restrictions. You may experience redness and slight swelling at the injection sites that should resolve in one to two days.

You may need several treatments Dr. Hera sets up four to eight weeks apart. Results become more visible in the months following your treatment as skin cells regenerate. You should see maximum results within three months, with younger-looking, smoother skin.

Am I a good candidate for PRP facials?

If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your skin due to wrinkles, fine lines, or acne scars, PRP facials may be an ideal treatment.

To be a good candidate for PRP injections, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for your cosmetic results.

Dr. Hera also reviews your medical history to ensure PRP facials will be a safe and effective treatment and that you have no underlying health conditions that may affect your ability to heal.
