PRP Facial Q & A

What are PRP facials?

PRP facials, creepily dubbed “vampire facials” because of notorious bloody-faced celebrity selfies, are facial skin treatments that use healing components from your own blood to improve your skin’s tone and texture. The treatment doesn’t require surgery, making it a gentle, minimally invasive option for nearly anyone who wants better-looking skin.

PRP facials involve microneedling to open up small channels in your skin. Before the treatment, Dr. Capaldi extracts some of your own blood and derives the healing platelets from it. Your platelets are the part of your blood that helps your body form scars and heal after injuries. Outside of aesthetic medicine, platelet-rich plasma is often injected into injured joints to help them heal quickly.

After the microneedling portion, he applies the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your skin. Combined with collagen-stimulating microneedling, your platelets aid in healing your skin and improving its quality.

How can PRP facials improve my skin?

PRP facials make many improvements to your skin. After treatment, you’ll enjoy:

  • Firmness
  • Even tone
  • Even texture
  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Fewer scars

Overall, your skin looks younger and tighter. PRP facials give you a shining new complexion with minimal side effects.

Are PRP facials right for me?

If you’re striving for better skin and always using the latest products and procedures, but to no avail, PRP facials are a safe and effective skin improvement option. Even if your skin has extensive sun damage, PRP facials are gentle enough for it.

Dr. Capaldi may urge you to explore other skin treatment options if you have any blood diseases or clotting disorders.

Are there any side effects with PRP facials?

You may experience a few side effects from your PRP facial. Most of them are the result of the microneedling and should go away within a few days. Common side effects are:

  • Bleeding
  • Redness and irritation
  • Light bruising
  • Peeling

You’re highly unlikely to get any side effects from the PRP since it came from your own body. As long as a licensed professional like Dr. Capaldi performs your PRP facial and you follow his aftercare instructions, you’ll enjoy a short and smooth recovery.
