The Secret to Naturally Glowing Skin

Psst, here’s another beauty secret… More glowing, radiant and youthful skin is possible – no matter your age.

You know how that base layer of makeup is called “foundation”? Imagine that same smooth and even look without the makeup.

Yep, the time has come! A “foundation” of better looking skin can be yours, around the clock and without any makeup. It’s called platelet rich plasma or PRP.

Using a centrifuge we firstly spin your personal “gold.” A small vial of your blood (drawn by Christina while you hardly notice) is separated into golden colored plasma and platelets.

These plasma and platelets are then further refined using the Selphyl process. Getting the PRP ready only takes about 10 minutes.

Our favorite technique is injecting the refined PRP under the eyes and along the cheeks. Because the doctor uses a super-fine cannula, there is rarely bruising following this procedure. The results are amazing, noticeably tightening and rejuvenating the skin.

Like many of our favorite techniques, PRP procedures use your own collagen and elastin to regenerate and rejuvenate. Therefore, the results are especially natural looking.

Depending on the current level of skin elasticity, tone and texture, a series of two to five treatments may be advised for optimal results. That said you’ll likely see impressive results with your first treatment.

Another possibility is to use the PRP in a microneedling treatment, performed by Laurel. Indeed, as Kim Kardiashian made famous with her “vampire facial,” this was the first use of PRP. While we do find we can get more PRP to the treatment area via injection, both modalities provide impressive results.

Whether you go with microneedling or injections, give yourself the gift of PRP and find out for yourself why we can’t stop raving.

*Results may vary from patient to patient
