What is a Bio-Facial? This unique anti-aging treatment helps restore that youthful glow and turn back the clock, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is all-natural and minimally invasive, using restorative properties within your own blood to help increase blood flow, collagen production, and more.
What to Expect During a Bio Facial
The Bio-Facial is an outpatient procedure that usually takes no more than 30 minutes or so, allowing you to return to your normal activities quickly, with very little downtime.
Before the facial begins, a small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge. What this does, is spin it at high speed to separate the red blood cells from the plasma (which contains the white blood cells, or platelets). This platelet-rich plasma, or PRP for short, contains a host of healing properties like growth factors, proteins, and cytokines that work with your body to stimulate the natural healing process.
The Bio-Facial then starts with a process called microneedling, which is where we use a small instrument, called a derma roller, to make little tiny pricks on the top layer of the skin. This allows for fast absorption of the PRP, which is spread all over the face, giving a huge boost in restorative components and nutrients to the skin.
And that’s it! The patient is all done, and everything from here on out will be under the surface of the skin. Those potent and valuable growth factors will work with the system’s natural healing response to encourage new healthy tissue growth and collagen production, giving the skin a fresh glow and more youthful appearance that increases over the coming weeks and months, often lasting for a year or more.
Benefits of a Bio-Facial include:
- Tighter looking skin
- Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
- Smaller pores
- Increased elasticity in the skin
- Reduction in the appearance of acne scars
- Fewer stretch marks
- Fewer age spots
- Fewer frown lines
- Better skin tone
- Reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet
By encouraging new collagen production, your skin will have more of what it needs to maintain that firm, plump, youthful appearance that tends to wane with age (and the related reduced collagen production).
