PRP for Facial Rejuvenation
PRP Facial Rejuvenation in Pasadena
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, skin rejuvenation has become a highly sought-after facial treatment. The therapy stimulates cell growth and collagen production to improve facial complexion, texture, and lost volume. PRP is also used for anti-aging treatments, fat transfers, and acne scarring.
When combined with Microneedling with the DermaPen®, PRP’s growth-factor-rich platelets are delivered beneath the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen growth, healthy vascularization (pigmentation), and new skin cell growth. As a result, this treatment reduces the signs of aging, such as dryness, uneven pigmentation, dull tone, and fine wrinkles and lines.
Your clinician will prepare your skin with a numbing gel for discomfort during the treatment. Because microneedling involves lightly damaging the skin with fine needles—to stimulate the body’s healing response, which the PRP will enhance—you will likely experience some redness, swelling, soreness, or bruising after treatment. These generally resolve in a day or two. Because the PRP is obtained from your blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction or infection from the PRP itself. Talk with your provider before treatment about any allergies to the numbing gel.
Best results are achieved with a series of PRP/microneedling facials scheduled several weeks apart, with maintenance follow-up as desired.

FAQs for PRP Facial Rejuvenation
How long will my PRP facial rejuvenation results last?
Expect facial rejuvenation improvements to last up to a full year after each treatment. Results will vary by patient, depending on their collagen growth rate. We suggest follow-up procedures every year.
How soon will I see my PRP facial rejuvenation results?
Once the swelling from the plasma subsides, you will not notice immediate changes. But over the next few weeks, your skin texture and tone will improve as the platelets begin to stimulate growth factors and collagen regeneration.
What improvement can I expect with PRP facial rejuvenation?
After two to three weeks, you can expect an increase in hydration, with textural enhancement gradually increasing over the next few months. Our patients experience a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone, and an overall youthful glow.
