The healing properties of PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following: reducing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening/toning skin, and stimulating collagen production. The PRP Facial is typically applied topically with Vivace™ microneedling but can also be injected just below the surface of your skin.
Used on thousands of patients worldwide, PRP Facial has been shown to be both safe and effective. The PRP Facial contains only autologous components and no severe adverse reactions have been reported (nodules, bumps or granulomas). OVME harvests the PRP directly from your own blood.
The PRP Facial is like a normal facial with microneedling. The areas are numbed using a lidocaine based topical cream. Active PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) that is taken from your blood sample is then applied to the face, neck, or chest and then microneedled into the skin. After the procedure an additional application of PRP will be placed on the skin to promote tissue healing. Treatments usually take 40-60 minutes.
Since the PRP Facial uses your own blood and does not contain any animal or synthetic components, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction. There have been no known serious side effects reported in actual usage. However, you may experience some common reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, bruising, swelling, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site. These temporary conditions typically resolve themselves within 1-2 days.
The treatment can provide a gradual increase in volume by helping to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Following your treatment, you should be able to begin to see results. Once the initial swelling goes down, it may take up to 3 sessions to see sustained volume replacement.
As this is a natural process using your own biology, there are no such associated risks.
As with all beauty regimens, maintenance is required to sustain results. PRP Facial offers natural and lasting effects.
Desired results may be achieved in just one visit, but only your provider can determine the best treatment approach.
