Facial Rejuvenation with PuraPlas PRP Treatments in Kelowna
Are you looking for smoother, healthier, and natural restoration of your skin? PRP treatments might be just what you are searching for. PRP is a non-surgical treatment, that involves using your plasma to promote collagen formation and cell migration to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. This system isolates the platelet-rich portion of your blood and is injected back into target regions. This method regenerates cells and helps reduce wrinkles and lines, giving you a fresher look.
C. D. Bakala MD Inc. in Kelowna, uses the PRP system called PuraPlas, which uses your own blood to isolate plasma, where a concentrate of nutrients and platelets reside. Platelets are cells that naturally assist your body in healing and generating new tissue. These platelets contain growth factors, which are involved in stem cell migration, to activate, rejuvenate, and regenerate cells. This helps you fight the signs of aging using your body’s natural biology.
What is PRP with Radiofrequency, and How Does it Work?
At Faces of Kelowna, we can combine PRP treatments with radiofrequency Secret™ RF technology. The Secret RF technology uses radio frequency microneedling to create hemostasis and coagulation under the skin. This triggers your body’s healing response to generate elastin, hyaluronic acid, collagen which remodels your skin from the inside. The machine’s tiny needles heat the deeper skin layer, promoting collagen production. Both radiofrequency and the microneedling techniques promote new collagen synthesis, resulting in firmer, tighter, and brighter skin.
During the PRP facial treatment, your plasma from the PuraPlas system is combined with microneedles, then inserted into the dermis, and radiofrequency pulses are delivered to the specific tissues. The microneedles cause tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating 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 6-8 months.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with a high platelet content. Platelets release various growth factors as they assemble in the clot, promoting healing. When applied to wounded or injured tissue, PRP can help it heal and regenerate, making healthier and younger-looking skin.

PRP Facial Results
The body takes around 1–4 weeks to produce collagen, and the tightening impact and outcome will occur progressively over 6–8 months. Most people will notice a difference a few weeks following therapy, 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.
Is PRP Safe?
PRP treatment is considered safe when administered by trained professionals. Because PRP uses the patient’s blood, there is a minimal risk of allergic reactions, infections, or rejections; unlike other treatments that use foreign substances.
PRP is also a minimally invasive procedure, meaning no surgical incisions are needed. This reduces the risks associated with surgeries, such as infections or complications from anesthesia. However, like any medical procedure, there can be potential side effects. Common side effects of PRP include:
- Pain or discomfort at the injection site
- Redness or bruising
- Mild swelling
It’s important to consult your doctor to administer PRP treatments to minimize risks.
Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding PRP treatments:
How Long Does the PRP Procedure Take?

How Long Do the Effects of PRP Last?
The longevity of PRP results depends on the treatment area and individual factors but can range from several months to a couple of years.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from PRP?
Results vary by individual and treatment area, but many patients start to see improvements within a few weeks, with full results appearing after several months.
