Do you need a facial?
If you have aging skin, blackheads whiteheads, breakouts, clogged pores, crepey skin, crows feet, dark circles under the eyes, dry skin, dry lips, dull skin, enlarged pores, skin reactions to allergens and air pollution, oily skin, fine lines, flakiness, milia, creases in the neck, peeling lips, dark spots, poor elasticity, puffiness, redness, sagging eyelids, sagging neck, smoker’s skin, bags under the eyes, vertical lines on lips, or visible capillaries, the answer is yes, you do! But not all facials from all providers are equally effective.
Facials You Can Do at Home
Everyone can and should do facial care at home. To remove dirt, perspiration, and excess skin oil, everyone should cleanse the face at least twice a day. The tools you choose for facial cleansing are important. Think gentle. Many people with deep, rich, dark skin tones make the mistake of over-cleaning. They cleanse the skin too roughly or too often. Major skin care problems like acne, clogged pores, enlarged pores, and dark marks are not caused by dirt. Trying to scrub these skin issues away can result in discoloration and keloid scarring. Gentle cleansing at home is your best choice.
Facials You Can Get at Your Spa
Once a month, or maybe even once a week, it’s great to get a facial at your spa. An aesthetician can offer you acne facial treatment you cannot do safely at home, and a skilled professional can head off some skin care problems before they start. You feel pampered, and you look better. Your aesthetician can help you keep up with the bewildering variety of skin care products to find home care products that work best for you. But there is an important kind of facial you can only get from your dermatologist.
The Anti-Aging Facial You Can Only Get from Your Dermatologist
Some problems of aging skin just can’t be treated at home. And your spa just doesn’t have the full range of tools needed to deal with acne scars, persistent brown discoloration, chicken pox scars, fine lines, and severely sun-damaged skin. For that you need a special kind of treatment known as the PRP facial, a treatment with platelet-rich plasma.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma is a concentrated source of growth factors, regulatory hormones, and platelets your own body produces. Applied to your skin, it stimulates the growth of collagen to strengthen your skin as it remodels itself back into its natural texture and contours. Applied by your dermatologist to your skin by a microneedling procedure, PRP restores your skin to its naturally even tone and luster.
Most potential patients want to know the answer to “Does it hurt?”
The answer is no. And even though PRP facials are sometimes called “vampire” facials because they involve blood-derived growth factors, there is nothing scary about them. The physician’s assistant takes a small amount of blood through a painless blood draw. Then the doctor isolates the growth factors from the blood sample. An almost-painless microneedling device is used to create tiny punctures in the skin, nearly-microscopic intentional wounds that stimulate the skin to create new collagen. Then the growth factors are painted into these tiny punctures so they penetrate the skin. These growth factors activate stem cells in your skin to stimulate the growth of healthy, rejuvenated, youthful skin.
