How Long Should I Leave PRP On My Face?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

When undergoing a skin treatment with platelet rich plasma, it is often still visible on the skin immediately after the treatment. Unless the treatment calls for it, your master esthetician will not cleanse it off. While it may be tempting to wash it off immediately, there are benefits to not doing so. Similar to a VI Peel, leaving the PRP on the skin is often part of the treatment. So, how long should I leave PRP on my face?

Depending on the treatment, it is frequently recommended that patients leave PRP on their skin for at least eight hours before washing it off. Of course, this may seem impractical because patients could otherwise return to their normal activities, but the PRP leaves their face looking red if not washed off. However, it also offers the skin intense nourishment. 

If you are able, schedule your appointment when you do not have to go back to your activities until at least the next morning, leave the PRP on overnight, and wash it off in the morning. This promotes the best results. Also, since PRP comes from your own body, there is little chance of an adverse reaction or irritation from leaving the PRP on.

Does PRP Help Sagging Skin?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Platelet rich plasma has many benefits for the skin. From helping plump certain areas to providing a healthy glow, cosmetic PRP is becoming a go-to cosmetic treatment. However, what exactly can platelet rich plasma treat? Does PRP help sagging skin?

Like with many cosmetic procedures, it depends. If treating mild wrinkles, then PRP injections are a good option for creating more collagen and treating the wrinkles. However, more obvious wrinkles likely will not respond to PRP alone. Therefore, platelet rich plasma may help with treating mild sagging skin.

However, PRP is also frequently used in facelift surgery to help promote ideal healing and reduce scarring. In this case, platelet rich plasma does help treat more advanced skin sagging in combination with surgery. Studies have shown better outcomes and results when using PRP during surgery than not.

Does PRP Microneedling Work For Stretch Marks?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Stretch marks occur when the skin stretches or contracts with weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, and other conditions. Many people become self-conscious about their stretch marks and may use various topical products to help them fade. However, even with new stretch makes, these results are often minimal. Let’s look at another option and answer the question, “Does PRP microneedling work for stretch marks?”

First, it is essential to note that it is easiest to treat recent stretch marks. You will see more effective results, though older stretch marks can also be helped in some cases, but the results will not be as dramatic. When undergoing a PRP microneedling session, the treatment stimulates collagen over and around the stretch marks. This helps the skin heal and contract to fade the stretch marks over time.

It often takes several sessions for stretch marks since they are not a traditional scar or skin. Therefore, it can take much longer than usual to see results, even with this effective method. Some people choose to supplement with PRP injections to treat deeper into the skin.
