PRP Facial Specialist Q&A

PRP facials are an effective anti-aging procedure. A PRP facial treatment is an advanced natural cosmetic treatment that includes injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into the face. PRP can help enhance texture and tone, minimize wrinkles, and stimulate new collagen growth. If you have uneven skin tone, acne scars, wrinkles, or other symptoms of aging, you are a suitable candidate for the PRP facial. At Assure Wellness Group, Henry J. Van MD and his team specialize in performing PRP treatments that can restore health and glow to your features. For more information, contact us or schedule an appointment online. We have convenient locations to serve you in Chesapeake VA, Alexandria VA, Surf City NC, and Jacksonville NC.

Procedures to improve the texture and quality of the skin have grown in popularity over the years, and plasma-rick protein (PRP) facials (also sometimes referred to as ‘vampire facials’) lead the charge when it comes to naturally restoring skin vitality.

What does a PRP facial do?


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials are a non-surgical method of encouraging collagen production and skin healing. It is commonly used to treat scarring, hyperpigmentation, uneven or dull skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Plasma refers to the component of blood that is primarily known for its healing and growth properties. When PRP is reintegrated back into the skin, these properties stimulate collagen production, cellular growth, and new blood vessel formation. This results in the skin looking fresher, younger, and healthier.

With a PRP facial, plasma can either be spread over the face after microneedling across the forehead and cheeks, or it can be injected into the skin via a tiny needle. This second option is what is commonly known as a ‘vampire facial’.

Is PRP good for your face?


By introducing PRP back into the skin, cell growth and restoration are encouraged. This leads to an increase in elastin and collagen stores, which results in the skin looking fuller, tighter, and smoother. This treatment can safely be used on the face, neck, and hands to revitalize skin and improve the appearance of:

– Acne scars
– Age spots
– Dark patches of skin (melasma)
– Fine lines
– Hyperpigmentation
– Liver spots
– Mild scarring
– Rough skin
– Sunspots
– Wrinkles

PRP facials are a great method for improving skin health, offering minimally invasive methods of treatment as well as minimal (if any) side effects and recovery time.

Is a PRP facial better than Botox?


You’ll find patients who will swear by either procedure when it comes to restoring the firmness and appearance of their skin. However, PRP offers some benefits that make it the forerunner when it comes to facial rejuvenation.

Firstly, the effects from a PRP facial are typically longer than those from Botox. On average, routine PRP treatments can provide results that last upwards of 18 months, while those from Botox typically last 3-4 months. This often makes it the preferred option for those who are looking for cost-effective and time-efficient methods of facial rejuvenation.

Secondly, PRP facials rely on the patient’s blood supply, so no foreign materials are introduced into the skin. This mitigates the risk of an allergic reaction happening during treatment, whereas those receiving Botox have to be mindful that their body may not always react welcomingly to an injection.

Lastly, PRP facials are performed on the entire face, which aids in the effectiveness and consistency of results. In comparison, Botox treats targeted areas on the face – such as the forehead or frown lines, which can leave the skin looking and feeling inconsistent in terms of texture and firmness.

Does PRP work under the eyes?


Yes, it does! PRP facials include the area under the eyes and are commonly used as a non-surgical method of treating circles and bags. PRP is injected into this area so that tissues can receive the boost they need to repair and rejuvenate damaged or sagging tissues.

This results in regaining lost elasticity and plumpness under the eyes, repairing the weakening collagen and elastin in the skin, and creating new blood vessels that can bring oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. It can also help reduce puffiness that’s caused by excess fluid retention and toxin buildup.
