The popularity of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments, particularly PRP facials, among aesthetic patients has increased in recent years as people are seeking anti-aging procedures with long-term results.
As the medical aesthetics industry continues to grow, more physicians and nurses are capitalizing on the popularity of PRP injections, among other cosmetic procedures like Botox, dermal fillers and Kybella.
Before you can begin offering PRP facials to your clients, you must attend a training course at a medical aesthetics school. With over 15 years of excellence, the National Laser Institute offers PRP facial training for medical professionals looking to learn how to inject PRP as well as other cosmetic injection techniques. Once your course is finished, you will feel comfortable and confident in providing PRP facials to your future clientele.
What Is A PRP Facial?
The PRP facial is a cosmetic treatment that combines two anti-aging techniques – PRP injections and microneedling – into one procedure. While traditional microneedling is used to treat skin concerns like age spots and hyperpigmentation, PRP injections boost these effects to help your clients achieve their desired results quicker.
The first step in the PRP facial treatment process is the blood draw. A small amount of blood is drawn from the client and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. After, this clear plasma fluid is drawn into a syringe so that it can be injected or massaged back into the skin.
The PRP is then combined with microneedling, which uses a pen-shaped device to create a series of tiny, superficial punctures that allows the skin to absorb the protein-rich serum. Together, PRP and microneedling stimulate new collagen growth while also speeding up the healing process.
One of the most significant benefits of a PRP blood facial treatment is that the results are meant to mimic a facelift but with zero downtime! For enhanced, anti-aging effects, hyaluronic acid fillers and Botox can be injected into facial areas with deeper lines and wrinkles.
During PRP facial training for medical professionals, you will learn how to inject PRP in order to help your clients achieve their skin care goals and desires. Your CME training course will include hands-on practice in an educational environment where you will treat clients using a variety of cosmetic injection techniques.
