About PRP Therapy
Novato, CA plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are excited to provide platelet-rich plasma therapy, also called PRP, at Allegro MedSpa of Novato to help refresh your facial appearance. PRP therapy is one of the most popular and innovative cosmetic treatments in the aesthetic industry due to its natural origin and exciting results. The procedure uses a patient's very own plasma to stimulate the skin, concealing the prevalence of fine lines. PRP therapy is also sometimes performed in conjunction with microneedling in what has been coined as the vampire facial. For more information about PRP therapy, call Allegro MedSpa of Novato in Novato, CA to schedule a consult. We are excited to discuss the benefits of PRP, as well as what it can do for your skin.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019

Those with deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, droopy skin, and volume loss are usually great candidates for PRP therapy. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it's also a fantastic treatment choice for rejuvenating dull-colored skin. Speak with our aesthetic team about any blood disorders, skin conditions, or anemia to determine whether it's safe for you to undergo PRP therapy.
After you're comfortably seated in one of our secluded minor procedure areas, a bit of blood will be taken from one of your arms and put into a centrifuge machine. Usually, we take around four tablespoons of blood. After approximately 15 minutes on the centrifuge machine, the components of the blood separate and are then ready to be injected. We will load your condensed plasma into a syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. The PRP procedure typically only takes around five minutes but can vary from patient to patient.
What to Expect
Plasma from PRP therapy promotes the production of elastin and collagen naturally to reveal younger and tighter appearing skin. Since it uses your own blood, the risk of allergic reaction or adverse reactions is virtually eliminated. You can expect your face to be a tad red following the procedure as a few red blood cells are included in the injection. Cold packs can be used on the treatment site to reduce discomfort and swelling. We recommend you undergo treatments in 4 – 6 weeks intervals to maintain results.
Thanks to PRP treatments, your complexion will look healthier and brighter than ever before by producing a glowing, beautiful appearance. This treatment is great for men and women who prefer a natural technique for skin rejuvenation that provides gorgeous results.
