What are some common signs of aging?
- Skin color grayer because of less blood flow.
- Fine vertical lines around the mouth.

While this is being processed, microneedling is performed to create microchannels in the skin.Once the PRP is obtained it is spread carefully over the microchannels in the skin.More information regarding microneedling is found in the Microneedling section under Aesthetic Services.
How long does a PRP facial last?
