Life can often be stressful. Whether that stress stems from the office, your relationship, or other daily struggles and worries, the stress is still present—and it’s unhealthy. To add insult to injury, when you’re stressed, it shows, and usually on your face. Stress can take the form of unwanted lines, wrinkles, or creases.
However, at Aesthetic Art in Palm Springs, we offer a convenient and affordable treatment that can successfully smooth and revive your appearance.

PRP treatments (platelet-rich plasma) first emerged as innovative treatments for sports injuries. Today, however, the very same treatments can rejuvenate your appearance. Known as a PRP facial, this procedure has become popular among celebrities, as well as patients who want a fresher, smoother look. Specifically, PRP facials address the root of the aging process by using the patient’s own blood in an easy, fast, and relatively pain-free manner.
To start, the platelet-rich plasma is spread over the entire face as a serum. This serum contains a myriad of components that are conducive for healing, including fibroblasts. Then, we use a collagen induction therapy method to create tiny holes into which the serum will be absorbed. Once the absorption takes place, volume is instantly created, filling both sunken features of the face and deep wrinkles. Further, the serum is rich with natural growth factors, fades age spots, and builds collagen into the dermis.
As a result, the PRP facial treatment improves skin texture, tone, and overall quality. This creates a youthful, refreshed appearance.
Most individuals are overly pleased to learn about the variety of benefits offered by the PRP facial. For example, since the serum used in the treatment comes from each patient, there is no risk for infection, allergic reaction, or rejection. Simply put, this is a completely safe, reliable, and all-natural process to smooth and revive your appearance.
One of the most popular factors of the treatment, is that downtime is not extensive. After the procedure, slight redness and puffiness should be expected for a two-day period. Working patients can have this procedure on a Friday, take the weekend to recover, and be back in the office by Monday.
The actual treatment itself takes roughly a half an hour to complete, during which, most patients report no feelings of discomfort. For most patients to reach optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments at one-month intervals.
As previously stated, patients with all skin types are welcome to schedule a consultation for the PRP facial. The ideal patient is someone who wants a fresher look, but without the expense, downtime, and inconvenience of facelift or other types of surgery. However, individuals who are currently taking blood thinning medication or are prone to blood clots should not consider this procedure.
As with any type of cosmetic treatment or procedure, there is always the possibility of negative side effects. PRP facial patients may experience redness, soreness, and/or swelling. Yet, these side effects are only temporary, and if they do occur, they generally subside within just a few days. Following treatment, it will be necessary to avoid direct sunlight.
With age, our facial appearance tends to change. However, with PRP facial, we can revive our appearance and enjoy better skin.
