PRP injections are the perfect treatment for those in NYC who want to rejuvenate the appearance of their face and begin new collagen production in a completely natural way. The PRP facial uses growth factors from your own blood to generate beautiful skin that is healthy and vibrant. Additionally PRP can be used to help thicken hair and reverse hair loss of many different types.
What is PRP facial rejuvenation?
PRP facial rejuvenation is the infusion of platelet-rich plasma into your skin, which triggers the production of collagen. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is found within every human’s blood. This plasma contains growth factors, which work as the body’s rescue team when it becomes injured. When growth factors are introduced to the skin during a facial, this “rescue team” begins building new collagen, which results in skin that is firmer, tighter, and more youthful.
Key benefits of PRP injections for facial rejuvenation
- Brand-new collagen production
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Firmer, tighter, more youthful skin
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Minimized pores
- Natural and chemical-free
A PRP facial rejuvenation treatment can be administered in different ways. It can be infused via microneedling, along with resurfacing lasers or infused with microdermabrasion or simply injected into the skin:
- In microneedling, the platelet-rich plasma is worked deeply into the skin with a handheld device that includes micro-needles, which also helps to create new collagen.
- Combined with laser resurfacing, the skin is passed over with a handheld device that delivers high intensity laser light energy to the skins surface and subcutaneous areas. These laser treatments combined with PRP help to treat dark spots, volume loss as well as superficial and deep wrinkling. Together PRP + resurfacing lasers work synergistically maximizing your results.
- With PRP injections alone, the platelet-rich plasma is simply injected into different areas of the facial skin and subcutaneous areas to help with volume and skin texture.
No matter the technique or type of administration the result is radiant, healthy, glowing skin as well as increased hair density and volume.

Diminish Acne Scars
Many people between the ages of 18 to 30 struggle with acne. If you are looking to alleviate the damage caused by acne, consider PRP acne scar injections. These injections contain a concentration of platelets, growth factors, stem cells, and other components which initiate neocollagenesis – the process of forming new collagen. By inserting the PRP serum under the scars, dermatologists can reduce skin depressions and stimulate new collagen production.
Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which your skin appears discolored or blotchy due to an excess of melanin in the skin. Issues with hyperpigmentation can be addressed through microneedling with platelet-rich plasma, which creates tiny openings in the skin to promote collagen production. In turn, issues such as scar hyperpigmentation, melasma or sun spots, can be remedied by platelet-rich plasma, helping your skin stay smooth and healthy-looking all year long.
