If the sound of a vampire facial makes you cringe, don’t fret. We’re here to explain the incredible benefits of PRP therapy — or Platelet-Rich Plasma — specifically for your skin! For those who also prefer more natural methods of rejuvenation, they’ll be happy to hear that this efficient facial utilizes a patient’s blood in a way that’s safe and not scary or offputting at all. Let’s take a closer look at how Toronto’s Elements Spa can help address pesky facial skin concerns with PRP alongside board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon and facial plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Adibfar.

As mentioned, a PRP facial employs a patient’s own blood. Why? When prepared, the blood’s astonishing self-healing properties work wonders on patients’ skin! The method involves safely removing a small amount of blood from a patient’s arm and spinning it in a state-of-the-art centrifuge system that separates all components of the patient’s blood. After completing the spinning cycle, the red blood cells and platelets are separated leaving the potent plasma ready to be injected into the desired areas.

This plasma is revered for its incredible healing properties which include stimulation of collagen production and elastin, improved skin quality and cellular function, rejuvenation, and more! PRP is also known for its unique ability to help heal sports injuries as well as restore hair loss when injected into the scalp. Regarding facial rejuvenation, the platelet-rich plasma is safely injected into all areas for overall revitalization across the entire face. Other areas requiring more attention may receive added benefits from more concentrated injections and multiple sessions.

For patients looking to regenerate and improve their facial complexion, the PRP facial works remarkably well to brighten and tighten the skin, even out skin tone, and smooth facial wrinkles and textured areas. Due to the injections being the patient’s blood, this natural treatment also results in facial skin improvement for even months after the single treatment! That equates to long-lasting results that compound over time, especially with a recommended series of PRP facials.

Our patients love receiving PRP facials because they are safe, naturally derived, mildly to non-invasive, and include little to no downtime. The platelet-rich plasma also works effectively as an anti-aging treatment while providing incredibly natural-looking results. Over time, patients notice that their complexion looks smoother, more vibrant, and youthful.

If you’re looking for a non-surgical facial treatment that provides natural and long-lasting results while healing general skin concerns — like uneven skin tone, minor lines, wrinkles, dullness, and more — then the natural enhancement and healing properties of a PRP facial may be the right treatment for you!
