Optimal Health and Wellness in Pasadena, CA are proud to offer this treatment in the range of cosmetic solutions that we provide.
Does a PRP Facial Make You Look Younger?
The short answer is yes, a PRP facial absolutely makes you look younger! As we age, hollowed cheeks, jowls, as well as fine lines and wrinkles begin to form due to decreased collagen production in our bodies. Skin can also appear unevenly textured due to a lack of collagen. This treatment prompts your body to begin producing more collagen by using PRP, otherwise known as platelet-rich plasma. This can help your face look substantially younger and healthier when used with dermal fillers, hyaluronic acid, or a facelift.
There’s very little risk of an allergic reaction because PRP is an organic material, and most patients see results immediately. Our technician injects dermal filler into your skin in strategic locations during this simple treatment process. You’ll achieve a luxurious, glowing look for your skin from the added facial volume these fillers give you. PRP is then applied just under the surface of your skin to reduce the signs of aging by boosting the natural production of collagen in your body.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma, also called PRP, is an organic material produced in your own body naturally. This means that there is very little risk of an adverse reaction because of the organic nature of the treatment. That’s what makes these treatments among the safest, most successful ways to get the beautiful, glowing skin that you desire.
We start the process by drawing a minute amount of blood. This blood is then put into a specialized tool called a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. That prepares your body’s own PRP to work wonders on your skin.
The Day of Your Treatment
You’ll want to discuss your unique needs and goals with our team to set the right expectations for your treatment. Everything that you need to know to have a successful treatment day will be given to you ahead of time. Most treatments of this kind take between one and two hours to complete. When you consider the incredible results this treatment offers, that sort of timeframe is a very minimal investment.
Our experts will be with you every step of the way as we draw the blood, inject the filler agents, and then return the PRP back into your system. We’re on hand to answer any questions you have and ensure that you feel entirely comfortable throughout the entire treatment process. Our number one priority is your total satisfaction. Many people come back for additional follow-up visits to enhance the dramatic results that you get from even one treatment.

Youthful, Natural Appearance
You’ll get results that restore your skin’s youthful vitality and look completely natural You won’t get any sort of artificial quality to your results since PRP is something that is naturally occurring within your own body.

How To Get the Most Out Of Treatment
There are a few things you can do to boost the longevity of the results you get from treatment and enjoy healthier skin for many years to come. We’ll go over all the best ways you can keep your skin healthy before your treatment date as well as address any of your questions or concerns. Here are some of the tips to keep in mind to retain the beautiful and full skin that this treatment leaves you with for as long as possible.
Don’t Touch Your Face
For the time immediately following your appointment, do your best to avoid touching your face. You don’t want to run the risk of irritating your skin as it is especially sensitive after treatment. You should also refrain from wearing makeup immediately after your treatment. Your skin requires a clean canvas for the PRP and fillers to work on to deliver the best results possible.
Wash Your Skin Gently
Right after your treatment, you should use lukewarm water to gently cleanse your face. Avoiding washing with hot water is always a good practice to promote healthy skin, since it can dry your skin out, but it is even more important following treatment because of the heightened sensitivity of your skin. Your skin will also benefit from using gentle moisturizers and products that won’t cause any irritation.
Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure
Premature aging, sunspots, and wrinkles can all result from the damage that sun exposure can cause to your skin. Your skin will be particularly sensitive to the sun’s rays following receiving a facial treatment. That makes it essential to avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
Wearing a strong SPF protection, wearing a hat and sunglasses, and generally avoiding going out under the sun whenever possible are all good practices to follow. Even once your skin has recovered, avoiding excessive sun exposure is always a great way to promote healthy skin.
Refrain from Smoking
Among the damage that smoking does to your body is the harm it causes your skin. Smoking inhibits the production of elastin and collagen, often leading to wrinkling near the chin and mouth. There are a host of other health benefits associated with quitting smoking. You can find a number of resources online or in-person that can help you quit tobacco use, so make use of them.
