At her cosmetic treatment spa, Refined Aesthetics, Jessica Robinson, APRN, CRNA, doesn’t want to change the way you look, she wants you to look like you—only better. One way Jessica gets you that rejuvenated, healthy and glowing skin is through the platelet rich plasma (PRP) facial. If you’ve seen photos on social media, you need not fear the PRP facial. What you do need is a little patience.

“If you’re looking for instant gratification, the PRP facial isn’t for you,” says Jessica. “But if you’re looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, repair sun damage or scarring and improve the tone and texture of your skin over time, it’s a wonderful treatment.”

The process goes like this. Jessica draws two vials of your blood and puts them in a centrifuge to concentrate the plasma for extraction. After cleansing and numbing your face, the process is painless and comfortable.

“I draw out the plasma, drip it on your face and microneedle it back into your skin with a microneedling pen,” says Jessica. “The entire procedure takes about an hour and there is minimal downtime, only about 10 hours where I ask you not to wash your face while the plasma is doing its job.”

And that job is acting like a traffic signal to your stem cells signaling cellular growth, increasing blood flow and stimulating fat tissue. Results in terms of glowing skin are seen within three days, but the real changes take place about 90 days after a recommended three treatments at four-to-six-week intervals.

“People especially appreciate the fact that this is all natural. Nothing foreign is being introduced,” says Jessica. “We didn’t age overnight, so 90 days to rejuvenated skin is well worth the wait.”
