A PRP facial uses both microneedling and platelet-rich plasma. First, microneedling is performed to stimulate collagen production by creating a series of microscopic wounds in the skin. Then 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 collagen production. These proteins improve surface imperfections and restore a radiant complexion.
