The Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment is an extremely effective non-surgical rejuvenation technique utilizing a simple yet powerful scientific technology. It is an excellent alternative to both traditional surgical options as well as the use of fillers, offering tightened skin condition, tissue repair and diminished lines and wrinkles. It is also highly effective in the treatment of acne scars, lip lines, and hair restoration in thinning areas.

The Science

The PRP Facial utilizes elements of your own body’s restorative systems to rejuvenate your skin. The platelets of your blood are the most active contributor to anti-ageing, as they contain the anti-clotting property responsible for repairing injuries and initiating healthy new growth. In this treatment, your own platelets are isolated from your blood to be re-injected into the treatment area using tiny micro-punctures. Your platelets then get to work “repairing the injury,” resulting in the building of new blood vessels, powerful collagen growth and tissue repair. This results in a rejuvenated and more youthful skin appearance and texture, with restored tightness, fullness and increased radiance.

The Technique

At your PRP Facial appointment, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic applied to maximize your comfort during the procedure. A small amount of your blood will be withdrawn, and the platelet-rich plasma will be separated out using a centrifuge. Next, these highly concentrated growth factors will be injected into the treatment area using multiple small insertions. This part of the process is only about five minutes long, after which you can go home. The only aftercare required is to keep the area clean for 24 hours to avoid irritation and infection, after which you will enjoy the results of your facial therapy.


Microneedling is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique using dozens of tiny, painless punctures to the skin. The skin is lightly anesthetized so you experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. The one-time use, gold-plated needles create tiny punctures in the outer layers of your skin, which responds by generating collagen to “repair” the “injuries.” The natural healing and rebuilding process of your skin is jumpstarted by the microneedling process, resulting in smoothed lines and glowing skin.
