PRP Facial on Hilton Head Island

A non-surgical, safe, and effective anti-aging treatment.

The PRP facial is a transformative treatment that combines microneedling with the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve skin texture, pores, acne, scarring, and complexion. PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors, and cytokines found naturally in your body, stimulating collagen development and remodeling soft tissue. A PRP facial is a non-surgical, safe, and effective way to prevent visible signs of aging while correcting and maintaining beautiful skin.

Frequently asked questions about a PRP Facial

Patients of all ages and skin types who are in good general health are candidates for a PRP facial. Ideal patients would like to improve overall skin tone and texture and reduce visible signs of aging.

When you come in for your appointment, a numbing cream will be applied and allowed to absorb before the procedure. One of our clinicians will then draw a small sample of blood and place it in our centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood.

After the numbing cream has been allowed to set in, your clinician will remove it and apply a small amount of your PRP to your face. As the microneedling device is passed over the treatment area, it creates tiny micro channels, allowing the PRP to be absorbed deep within the skin to initiate new skin cell production and boost collagen.

Aside from the initial needle prick of your blood drawn, a PRP facial is relatively painless. Before your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to absorb into the skin and offset any pain as the microneedling device passes over the treatment area. Depending on the depth of the needles used to treat your skin concerns, there may be slight discomfort, but it is temporary and easily tolerated.

The results of a PRP facial are long-lasting. However, because collagen production naturally declines as we age and our skin is continuously affected by our lifestyle choices and environment, they are not permanent. You may require another PRP facial in the future or schedule regular maintenance treatments to sustain your results.

One of the advantages of the PRP facial is that not much recovery time is necessary. Some redness and soreness, like a sunburn, may occur immediately following the treatment. Some patients may also experience bruising. The redness disappears the day after treatment, but some patients will experience slight swelling and a rough skin texture. By the third day, the swelling usually passes, but the rough surface may remain for up to a week. The downtime required after this treatment is minimal, if any.

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking corticosteroid injections or NSAIDS, please be advised that you should not undergo a PRP facial. During your consultation, a Symbios Medical Spa team member will review your history to determine if a PRP facial is a safe and effective treatment for you.

While dermal fillers contain an element that mimics your skin’s natural chemicals, PRP therapy is made from your actual cells. Dermal fillers are a gel-like substance that fills in fine lines, while PRP therapy prompts your body to make new collagen and skin cells, which generates younger-looking volume and develops a softer texture and brighter tone in your skin; rather than targeting specific lines and wrinkles, PRP therapy improves the look and feel of the whole treatment area. While dermal fillers are absorbed by the body within six months to a year, requiring another treatment, PRP therapy lasts for one to two years. In addition, PRP therapy can be performed on areas where dermal fillers are unsafe.
