    What It Treats

    Our PRP facial treatments at Beacon Dermatology are particularly effective for revitalizing a dull complexion, restoring lost elasticity, improving skin laxity, and smoothing fine wrinkles. By utilizing the natural growth factors in your platelets, PRP facials promote skin healing and regeneration from within. This process brightens and revitalizes a tired complexion and enhances the skin's firmness and texture, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance. It's an ideal solution for those seeking a natural yet powerful way to combat the signs of aging.

    How Does It Work?

    At Beacon Dermatology in Calgary, the PRP facial begins with a simple blood draw performed by our experienced nursing staff. The blood sample is then processed in a centrifuge, which separates it into different components. The key element for the treatment is the platelet-rich serum, a golden fluid rich in growth factors and cytokines. These naturally occurring substances in your blood stimulate skin rejuvenation and healing. This potent serum is then applied to the skin, typically in conjunction with laser treatments or microneedling, to maximize its effects.

    The procedure must be conducted in a sterile medical environment and with devices specifically designed for PRP treatments, ensuring efficacy and safety.

    PRP Facial Benefits

    Unlock your skin's natural potential for renewal and vitality with PRP facials at Beacon Dermatology. Here are the key benefits of this innovative treatment:

    • Enhanced Skin Texture: PRP Facials significantly improve skin texture, resulting in a smoother, more refined complexion. This is achieved by stimulating the skin's natural healing process, which repairs and revitalizes the skin's surface.
    • Reduction in Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The growth factors in PRP help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This process aids in restoring a more youthful appearance as the skin regains elasticity and firmness.
    • Improved Skin Hydration and Tone: PRP Facials promote better hydration and balance, leading to a more even skin tone. This benefit is beneficial for addressing issues like dullness and uneven pigmentation.
    • Natural Collagen Production: One of the most significant benefits of PRP is its ability to stimulate collagen production naturally. Increased collagen leads to firmer, more resilient skin, enhancing overall facial aesthetics and youthfulness.

    Who Are Good Candidates for This Treatment?

    PRP microneedling is a versatile treatment suitable for most individuals. However, it’s important to consider certain factors before proceeding. Those with sensitive skin might experience side effects such as redness or irritation. Additionally, individuals with specific health conditions, including diabetes or autoimmune disorders, might not be ideal candidates for this procedure due to potential safety concerns.

    We encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. Our team at Beacon Dermatology is here to provide guidance and ensure the best and safest treatment approach for your unique skin needs.

    What Is a PRP Facial Session Like?

    A PRP Facial session at Beacon Dermatology is a seamless blend of comfort and advanced skincare. Initially, a small blood sample is drawn and processed to extract platelet-rich plasma. This plasma, rich in growth factors, is then reintroduced to your skin, often paired with microneedling or laser treatments, to enhance absorption and effectiveness. The session focuses on rejuvenation, with minimal discomfort, typically described as a light pricking sensation.

    Expected Results

    Following your PRP Facial, it's common to experience mild redness, swelling, and occasionally bruising. These are temporary side effects, typically subsiding within a few hours to a few days. The rejuvenating effects of the facial start becoming noticeable within 1 – 2 weeks of your session, revealing a more refreshed and revitalized complexion.

    Aftercare Tips

    We provide essential aftercare advice to ensure the best results and protect your treated skin. This includes avoiding harsh chemicals on the skin and minimizing sun exposure for a few days. Generally, this treatment won't significantly disrupt your daily routine.
