Facial Rejuvenation with PRP Facial
A PRP facial is a skin rejuvenation procedure involving your plasma to promote collagen formation and cell migration, causing lines, creases, and wrinkles to be reduced or eliminated. PRP therapy produces natural-looking results that can last up to two years. In addition to that, PRP facial is non-surgical, and since your own blood is used in the procedure, allergic reactions are extremely rare. It can be applied to treat practically any part of the body. All these factors make PRP facial an excellent choice for those who aren’t interested in or aren’t suitable for injectable fillers.
At C D Bakala MD Inc. in Kelowna, we offer effective PRP facials using the Secret™ RF technology to enhance the beauty of your skin. Contact us today to get started.
What is PRP with Radiofrequency, and How Does it Work?
Radiofrequency uses tiny needles to heat the deeper skin layer, promoting collagen production. Both radiofrequency and microneedles modalities promote new collagen synthesis, resulting in firmer, tighter, and brighter skin.
During the PRP facial treatment, microneedles are inserted into the dermis, and radiofrequency pulses are delivered to the specific tissues. The microneedles cause tiny punctures in the skin, which stimulate it to recover. The heat produced by radiofrequency also induces a healing reaction in the skin, allowing it to thicken and tighten. Unaffected cells actively assist with tissue regeneration, causing it to produce new collagen. After the final treatment, the new collagen production can last anywhere up to 6-8 months.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with a high platelet content. Platelets release a variety of growth factors as they assemble in the clot, promoting healing. When PRP is applied to wounded or injured tissue, it can help it heal and regenerate, making a healthier and younger-looking skin.
The RF Technology
Secret RF ™ is a new fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling technology for tissue clotting and hemostasis that stimulates and remodels collagen while also addressing signs of ageing. It is perfect for individuals with all skin types who want to revive and renew the look of their skin. Treatments can be adjusted to your specific needs, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Ideal Candidate for PRP Facial Procedure
Microneedling RF with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is appropriate for people who want to enhance their skin’s appearance, texture, elasticity, and improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Our team will walk you through every step of the procedure.
PRP Facial Results
It takes around 1–4 weeks for the body to produce collagen, and the tightening impact and outcome will occur progressively over 6–8 months. A few weeks following therapy, most people will notice a difference, but the full effects will likely take months to appear. The results’ longevity is determined by various factors, including the patient’s age, but most patients will need a touch-up surgery a year after treatment.
