Though it may sound shocking if it is your first time hearing about it, a blood facial is an effective cosmetic treatment that can improve your complexion. Blood facials are simply a combination of two existing procedures: collagen induction therapy (or microneedling) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.

Collagen induction therapy, which involves making many small punctures in the skin, is regularly used in the field of cosmetics as a means of stimulating the production of collagen in the skin, helping to repair scarring, blemishes and other aesthetic issues to give you a smoother complexion. It can also help your facial skin to stay taut and elastic.

Platelet-rich plasma has been used in the dental field for several years. Simply explained, it involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood prior to treatment and spinning it in a centrifuge to isolate plasma that has a high concentration of platelets. This substance is full of healing proteins and can be used in a variety of applications to speed up the healing process.

In a blood facial, our dentists, Dr. Jason Wareham or Dr. Andrew Smith, will apply PRP to the site of a collagen induction therapy, allowing the face to benefit from faster, cleaner healing while it produces the collagen necessary to improve your facial complexion.
