By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma facials have become more popular as the cosmetic benefits became clear. PRP facials can include everything from microneedling with PRP to facials with PRP as a component. At PRP In Seattle, we offer the best facials featuring platelet rich plasma. Prior to treatment, patients often ask about the side effects of PRP facials. Fortunately, there are not many major side effects of PRP facials. 

First off, since PRP comes from a patient’s own body, the risk of an allergic reaction or rejection is notably low, if not impossible. This means that the risk of most PRP treatments is lower than that of dermal fillers. Similar to any injection, bruising, pain, swelling, and some itchiness is normal and will likely subside in a few days.

Next, like nearly any facial, there may be some risk of skin irritation. This particularly rare with PRP facials. When it occurs, it often is due to other ingredients or aspects of the facial. Some minor irritation may be normal and should go away on its own. Your master esthetician will tell you what to expect following a PRP facial in Seattle.

Finally, one of the major advantages is that there are not many side effects of PRP facials. During a consultation, your master estheticians will ensure you are a good candidate for the procedure and low risk for side effects. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112.

Skin Benefits Of Platelet Rich Plasma

By | PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, has become one of the leading skin treatments in the past few years. In 2020, this plasma will continue to take over the beauty and cosmetic industries. PRP offers many benefits when used in esthetic skin treatments. 


Most commonly, PRP is used for those who suffer from deep acne scarring. Platelet rich plasma stimulates collagen and elastin production which can help fill in the pits of boxcar acne scarring. Collagen and elastin are important proteins for your skin and contribute to the growth of new skin when healing a wound. Esthetic procedures utilizing PRP helps instigate this process and correct damaged skin. 


Additionally, PRP can help improve the overall tone and texture of your skin. Again, using it’s powerful regenerative properties, PRP stimulates the production of renewed skin. While this can help fill in acne scarring, it can also generally enhance your skin quality. Adding PRP to a procedure like microneedling, can improve and prolong your results.
