What if there was a procedure that could do it all- heal injuries, give you back your hair, and make your skin smooth and youthful? What if this treatment was completely safe because it used natural substances from your own body?
The good news is that such a procedure does exist. Did you know about the power that the plasma in your blood has? That is what allows the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment to be so successful. Made popular by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Tiger Woods, PRP is the perfect treatment to give you the appearance of beautiful, smooth skin at any age. In fact, many people have found that PRP is effective for many other purposes, including healing injured muscles and tendons, as well as restoring their hair. When injected into small punctures in your skin caused by microneedling, PRP uses the platelets in your blood to cause an increase in the production of collagen in your body, which allows your skin to heal and look clearer than every before.

PRP Facial: PRP Injection for Face
The face is one of the most popular areas where people get platelet-rich plasma treatment done because so many celebrities swear by it. But did you know that there are plenty of other reasons why you could get PRP done as well?
- PRP treatment for acne scars: Injecting plasma into a site where there are acne scars causes the skin to heal more smoothly.
- PRP for wrinkles: Since one of PRP’s main functions is to cause more collagen production, it may also be used in areas where you have wrinkles, such as the cheeks, smile lines, crow’s feet, and forehead.
- PRP facial rejuvenation: PRP also works for the face by giving you a more youthful appearance through increasing collagen production. Dubbed the Vampire Facial, this treatment was made popular by Kim Kardashian.
- PRP under eyes: PRP can be used to get rid of the appearance of dark undereye circles through adding volume and elasticity to the area.
How does PRP work?
PRP Treatment NYC is extremely unique in the sense that you are not being injected with a foreign substance, as the the material that is being injected is your own blood. Any possibility of allergies or any adverse reactions is completely excluded. The thought of using your own blood for a procedure might be scary for some, but the reality is that this treatment is completely safe and effective.
PRP is typically done in conjunction with microneedling because the plasma needs to be injected into the small punctures caused by the needles used in microneedling for optimal results. First, our professional will draw blood from your arm using a syringe. Then, they will put the blood into a centrifuge that works by separating the plasma from your blood.
What is plasma used for?
Platelet rich plasma is a naturally-occurring substance in your blood that works by making your blood clot. Plasma contains tissue growth factors, such as fibroblasts which cause collagen generation.
Once the plasma is successfully separated and processed, it will be injected or sprayed over the microneedling area until it is completely absorbed.
Microneedling done in conjunction with PRP boosts the effect of either procedure and can get both done at the same time. The professional will use small needles to make punctures in your skin with microneedling. This will allow the plasma to penetrate deep into the dermal layer of the skin.
Why Microneedling with PRP?
No matter what kind of skin imperfections you have, PRP injections NYC could be the perfect option for you. Whether you have fine wrinkles, acne scars, or minor imperfections, PRP can treat them all. This procedure is completely safe and you can be done in no time. PRP facial aftercare is completely simple too and consists of skin moisturization, avoiding sun exposure and any harsh skin treatments for 2 weeks after the procedure. Over the course of the next few weeks, your skin will heal from the treatment and produce more collagen, which will trigger an improvement in the overall texture and skin complexity. This is what produces refreshed, beautiful appearance within the course of one month.
PRP Treatment FAQ
Is PRP treatment for face effective?
Yes. It is clinically proven to be effective because the small injuries in your skin and the plasma in your blood work together to cause an increase in collagen and elastin production filling in wrinkles, acne scars, and other imperfections.
Is PRP painful?
It is actually not painful at all. A local anesthetic cream will be applied before the procedure to ease any pain. You may feel slight prickling throughout the procedure, but nothing more.
What are the PRP facial benefits?
There are plenty of wonderful benefits that PRP treatment NYC provides, including total rejuvenation of the skin, the ability to treat some of your biggest trouble areas, and the fact that the procedure is carried out using your own blood, so you will not have to worry about any allergic reactions or hypersensitivity.
What should I expect after PRP treatment?
Since PRP is a completely safe procedure with essentially no downtime or activity limitations. You will have redness and swelling lasting approximately 24 hours and minor peeling and crusting for approximately 48 hours.
How fast does PRP treatment work?

How long does PRP last?

What are the PRP injection side effects?

What is Microneedling aftercare like?
Microneedling recovery does not require any downtime except for using moisturizing cream for 3 days following the procedure. Don’t use any exfoliants for a few days after the treatment or anything else that will dry out your skin. It’s normal to notice side effects such as flaking, shedding, and dryness for about a week afterward. You can wear makeup and continue with your regular skin routine as soon as 24 hours after the treatment.
