How does PRP work?

Platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as “PRP,” is a rich solution of your body’s own healing components. The high concentration of platelets in PRP delivers countless growth factor proteins to targeted areas.

Growth factors quickly get to work and begin rebuilding and repairing tissues. As the primary blood components that jump into action when you have an injury, growth factors stimulate cell turnover, trigger tissue development, and enhance the production of collagen and elastin.

What happens during a PRP treatment?

All your provider at iBeauty Clinic has to do to begin a PRP facial is process a small amount of your blood in a centrifuge to create your PRP. Once your PRP is ready — it takes about 10-15 minutes — your aesthetic specialist applies the PRP directly to your skin.

To help your PRP penetrate as deeply as possible, they glide a microneedling tool over your skin. This step also helps create hundreds of microwounds for additional healing effects. 

Part of your PRP microneedling treatment may also involve PRP injections into problem areas, like boxcar acne scars. Your provider finishes your PRP treatment by applying more PRP to your skin. 

Finally, they counsel you on how to care for your skin as it heals over the following few days. iBeauty Clinic offers premium skin care products for purchase, which can help your skin heal quickly after a PRP service. 

How long is the recovery time after PRP?

Your skin is likely going to be red, sore, and irritated for several hours after your PRP facial treatment at iBeauty Clinic. These are normal side effects, and they let you know that blood flow is increasing to the area for optimal healing benefits.

Usually, within a week or two, you start gradually noticing the benefits of your PRP treatment from iBeauty Clinic. Your pores continue tightening up, while wrinkles, lines, and acne scars gradually fade away.

It may take anywhere from four to six weeks for you to experience more dramatic results. But week after week, you should find that your skin continues to improve.
