Our PRP facials are designed to enhance a dull complexion, treat surface imperfections, and restore a more youthful overall appearance. They combine gentle microneedling with powerful platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for an all-natural rejuvenation treatment.
A PRP facial harnesses the combined power of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma. First, microneedling is performed to stimulate collagen production by creating a series of microscopic wounds in the skin.
After microneedling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the wounded skin. This is the portion of your blood that has a heightened level of growth factors and healing properties. Once in place, the PRP reaches the deep layers beneath the surface and triggers new elastin and collagen production. Over time, these proteins improve surface imperfections and restore a radiant complexion.
Our PRP facial is a powerful, all-natural procedure that can deliver beautiful skin benefits – without surgery. When done correctly and consistently, it can:

Because the PRP facial is completely non-surgical and safe for all skin types and colors, most of our clients can be considered ideal candidates.
However, it’s important to note that this treatment is not appropriate for advanced wrinkles or sagging skin. It’s best for younger patients with early signs of aging. As such, our older clients may require a different procedure, such as dermal fillers or BOTOX.
During your initial consultation, our experienced aestheticians will assess your skin and help you determine the best way to achieve your unique aesthetic goals.
Your PRP facial will be done in the privacy of one of our soothing treatment rooms. To begin, one of our highly-trained aestheticians will cleanse your skin and draw a small amount of blood. We will then spin the blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma for the treatment.
We will then apply a numbing cream to your face to ensure your comfort, before performing your microneedling procedure. This treatment may be done in one of two ways:
Finally, we will apply the PRP topically on your skin, where it will enter the deepest layers through the wounds created by the microneedling procedure. The entire appointment should last about 45 minutes, at which point you will be free to return home. You may resume your normal daily activities the very next day.
Your PRP facial results will emerge gradually. You may notice that your complexion looks slightly more luminous within a few days. In four to six weeks, your collagen production will be complete, and your results will be considered final.
As a general rule, most of our clients require two to three PRP facials spaced one month apart for optimal results. However, some patients may achieve their goals with just one treatment.
