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.

How Often Can You Do PRP Microneedling?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

PRP microneedling, also known as microneedling with PRP, is a treatment that creates microscopic injuries in the skin to promote new collagen production. Adding PRP to this treatment promotes faster and better healing because PRP is a substance present during wound healing. It is often one of the indicators that healing needs to occur. Due to the powerful results, this procedure can achieve, patients usually want to repeat the treatment. How often can you do PRP microneedling?

While–like with nearly every procedure–the answer will vary slightly depending on the individual patient, the average time between PRP microneedling in Seattle is about four to six weeks to allow the skin enough time to heal. There may be more time between microneedling sessions if you undergo other esthetic treatments such as chemical peels between your PRP microneedling appointments. 

Even during the most aggressive treatment plans, there are usually at least two weeks between PRP microneedling sessions. At two weeks, most, if not all side effects, should have subsided. Therefore, in some cases, your master esthetician may recommend your next treatment then. 

After a consultation with a master esthetician at PRP In Seattle, they can recommend the best treatment plan for your skin and goals. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-206-2112. You can also reach us online using our contact form or chat.

Microneedling With PRP Seattle: Is PRP Microneedling Safe For All Skin Types?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Skin type refers to the most frequently occurring environment of our skin. In general, there are four different skin types: normal, dry, oily, and combination. The most common skin type is combination. This means that your T zone tends to be more oily than your cheeks and other parts of the face. Skin type can vary based on your environment, lifestyle, and the products you use. Each skin type requires different standards of care. When considering this, patients may wonder, “is PRP microneedling safe for all skin types?”

Microneedling–including PRP microneedling–is perfectly safe for every skin type. However, every skin type will react differently to the treatment. For example, dry skin may flake or become more irritated after treatment than normal or combination skin. This is normal because especially dry skin may already be sensitive. 

Sensitive skin can occur with any of the four skin types. When skin is classed as “sensitive”, it tends to react more to products and treatments. This may mean that your skin looks and feels more irritated following microneedling in Seattle. You can still undergo PRP microneedling if you have sensitive skin, though your master esthetician will adjust the procedure and aftercare accordingly.

PRP Microneedling Seattle: How Often Can You Do Microneedling With PRP?

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care

Microneedling is a professional skincare and exfoliation treatment that induces collagen production. It is common to add platelet rich plasma to microneedling treatments to promote better and often quicker results. Similar to how the small punctures stimulate your body’s healing response, PRP is a substance present when the body is healing. This further stimulates collagen production and skin repair. With these powerful, possible results, patients often wonder: how often can you do microneedling with PRP?

As a general rule, our master estheticians recommend spacing out all esthetic procedures about four to six weeks apart. This will depend on the procedures and the specifics of your skincare needs. However, as an exfoliation treatment that does require some aftercare, it is best to space out PRP microneedling procedures every few weeks.

Some less invasive and non-irritating procedures like an oxygen facial can often be performed in the interim between PRP microneedling treatments. At a consultation with a master esthetician, they will put together a customized plan that may include microneedling with PRP.

PRP Microneedling vs. Without

By | PRP Skin Care | No Comments

Microneedling is a professional skincare procedure that causes the body to create more collagen. The procedure is commonly performed on its own and in combination with platelet rich plasma. Both variations of the procedure can greatly benefit the skin and your master esthetician can determine which will meet your skin goals best. 

 

What are the differences between PRP microneedling and regular microneedling? Adding PRP to microneedling can speed up collagen production and boost the amount of benefit seen from the procedure. PRP is a natural substance in blood that indicates healing and induces the body to create more collagen. This can improve the look of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and generally enhance skin quality. 

 

When should a patient choose microneedling with PRP over traditional microneedling? In most cases, it comes down to preference. However, for patients that have deep acne scarring or facial scars they hope to treat, PRP microneedling is more effective at treating these concerns than microneedling alone.

 

A consultation with one of our master estheticians where you can discuss your skin concerns and goals will allow them to cater your microneedling procedure to you. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112 or contact us online

Collagen: What It Does For Your Skin & How PRP Stimulates It

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Injections, PRP Skin Care | No Comments

When doing research on skincare products and procedures, you’ve probably heard of collagen. But, what exactly is it and what does it do? Collagen is a vital protein in mammals that is found in most of our connective tissues. As we age, our body naturally produces less collagen. This contributes to the visible signs of aging like facial hollows and wrinkles, but also to the physical signs like joint pain. 

In professional skin care treatments, they often create small abrasions or injuries that tell your body to heal them. This causes your body to ramp up collagen production. This can treat and correct many skin concerns like acne scarring, sun damage, texture issues, and uneven pigmentation. 

Esthetic services like microneedling, manually stimulate collagen growth. However, because platelets are one of the first responders to an injury site, adding platelet rich plasma can ramp up this process. Your body will often respond quicker and with more fervor when PRP is added. This can lead to more collagen production and can increase the length of time your body produces it.

Additionally, when used as a filler, PRP can begin collagen production in the injected area. This can lead to longer lasting results than dermal fillers.

Skin Benefits Of Platelet Rich Plasma

By | PRP Skin Care | No Comments

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.

Microneedling with PRP in Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland

The Unparalleled Benefits Of Microneedling With PRP

By | Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Skin Care | No Comments

Microneedling is one of the hottest skin care treatments on the market for the past few years. It’s ability to restore a more-youthful appearance is remarkable without entourage procedures. However, when this powerful collagen induction procedure is combined with the regenerative powers of platelet rich plasma, it can offer exponentially better results. 

Hyaluronic acid serums have traditionally been used after microneedling sessions, as the microscopic punctures allow for deeper serum penetration. Substituting PRP for traditional serums has been shown to supercharge microneedling procedures, further increasing collagen production. The end result is more supporting tissue below your skin and less wrinkles on the surface.

PRP encourages cell regeneration. This allows you see faster results, possibly with fewer treatments than if you chose traditional microneedling. Adding PRP to microneedling is common in the treatment of deep acne scarring and may help provide an improved result when treating surgical scars.
