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.
