To achieve facial rejuvenation, PRP therapy may be used with or without dermal fillers.

In some cases, it may be combined with micro needling treatment or as a topical addition to laser resurfacing procedure. Sky Balance Med Spa is one of the leading medical spa facilities equipped to provide the latest and highly innovative treatment such as PRP injections for facial rejuvenation. The medical spa provides treatment to patients in Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and surrounding communities.

What is PRP Facial Rejuvenation?

PRP facial rejuvenation involves platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy to improve the shape of the face and increase facial volume. It is often combined with injectable facial fillers to produce more sustainable results.

The med spa treatment provider may also recommend PRP therapy as an independent procedure to achieve facial rejuvenation in some cases. Even as a standalone procedure, PRP will support the natural collagen building process and improve the elasticity of facial skin.


To begin with, the treatment provider will obtain a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. This blood will be placed in a sterilized container and spun in a centrifuge to segregate the plasma from red blood cells. The process is designed to concentrate the platelet count to about four times the normal level.

The activated growth factors in the PRP are directly injected into the depleted areas of the facial skin or applied topically to produce surface regeneration. Sky Balance medical spa receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and nearby areas for PRP facial rejuvenation.

Triggering the Healing Process

PRP facial rejuvenation therapy tricks the cells to believe there is facial injury. As a result, the activated plasma serum responds the same way the body would act in case of an actual injury. The healing platelets rush in to build a rich fibrin mesh. This mesh in turn signals the natural healing cells, releasing growth factors, and stimulating the fibroblast production process. This process leads to collagen production and revitalizes and heals the face.

Aesthetic Benefits

PRP injection therapy for facial rejuvenation provides the following benefits:

  • Healthier looking face
  • Improved volume and thicker dermis
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and lines
  • Fading away of facial scars
  • Reduced need for dermal filler volume
  • Longer lasting results with dermal fillers

Common Areas of Treatment

Areas that are ideally treated with PRP therapy independently (without the use of facial fillers) include:

  • Full face
  • Horizontal neck lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Fine lines in the under-eye area
  • Acne scars
  • Décolletage

Benefits with Fillers

A combination of dermal fillers and a layering of PRP serum can help to create a real ‘lift’ effect for the face. PRP is injected above the filler, and it promotes a process of skin regeneration, while the filler cause volumizing. It reduces the facial signs of aging and improves the facial skin texture and tone.
