Preparing for Your Micro-needling with PRP Facial
When booking your appointment, make sure that you do not have to go back to work, or out in public for the remainder of the day.
Come to your appointment with clean skin and make sure you are hydrated.
The doctor will first draw your blood to spin down to create your PRP. While that process takes place, he or she will apply a topical numbing cream to your face, neck, and decollate to help reduce any discomfort.
The appointment takes around 60-75 min start to finish, and the micro-needling facial itself takes about 30 minutes or so. Afterward, you can expect to be red and a bit tender – much like a sunburn. You may have some blood spots on your face, in addition to the PRP which will remain on the entire treatment area.
Each person heals differently. Some people have slight pinpoint bruising, some people peel, and some people experience both!
Your doctor will provide you with aftercare recommendations and answer all of your questions.
After about 5-7 days, you will likely be completely healed. Many notice that they look more hydrated, refreshed, and rested.
Typically people require 3-6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. The best part is your body will continue to lay down collagen for up to six months after your last session!
Remember: Skin health is related to overall health so staying hydrated, eating lots of antioxidants, and wearing SPF are essential!
