There are so many treatments out there that are supposed to rejuvenate your appearance. Whether it’s creams, threads, or surgery, not everyone has the same experience with these facial treatments. Seychelles Med & Laser Spa in The Woodlands offers the groundbreaking, revolutionary, and non-surgical treatment known as PRP & PRF Facials! We don’t want to suck your blood, but we can use it to create a younger-looking, more vibrant you!
The PRP & PRF Facial is a minimally invasive procedure using micro-needling in conjunction with the patient’s own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin). The PRP/PRF, which contains powerful growth factors, is applied topically while the micro-needling channels are open to penetrate the epidermal layer of the skin. This helps to promote collagen production, reduction in fine lines, and re-energize cells to appear healthier, and firmer and produces glowing skin. A PRP & PRF Facial is different than the PRP & PRF Facelift because it is applied topically and transdermally, leaving you with a dewy glow and firmer skin.
What are the benefits of a PRP & PRF Facial?
In addition to a more youthful appearance and boost in self-confidence, many of our patients in The Woodlands have seen the following benefits from their PRP & PRF Facial:
Enhanced skin tone and texture

The Best Candidates
Who Is a PRP & PRF Facial For?
Good candidates for this procedure have no severe skin conditions and are in fairly good health.
The best candidates for a PRP & PRF Facial are those with ‘crepey’ skin, an ailment where the skin wrinkles and folds due to poor underlying support and brittle surface tissue.
Some of the facial flaws that this procedure corrects include:
Scarring (acne or surgical)
Substantial connective tissue strength loss, which leads to drooping
What’s the first step?
The first step in getting a PRP & PRF Facial in The Woodlands is to schedule your free consultation. During this appointment, your technician will listen to your goals from the facial treatment, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and give you an evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Once you agree with the technician, you will be able to schedule your appointment with our patient coordinator who will also provide you with any pre-treatment instructions and a price breakdown for the treatment.
You should be extremely honest about your medical history during this appointment as it will help prevent any potential side effects or risks as well as allow for the best healing results.
What to Expect on the Day of a PRP & PRF Facial
It is a simple procedure. First, we draw a small amount of your blood with a small needle. It is then spun in a centrifuge to separate your red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma and fibrin. We then take that “liquid gold” or plasma/fibrin and use it for the procedure.
You will numb for approximately ½ hour before the procedure to make it more comfortable.
The skin is then aerated by micro-needling, which creates microscopic holes or channels. The micro-needling allows the PRP/PRF entrance into the skin, which is applied topically during the procedure. A final layer of the PRP/PRF will be applied that will be left on the skin overnight.
PRP & PRF Facial Recovery
What is the downtime?
You should expect at least one-three days of downtime. You will go home with the PRP/PRF on the face and could have a blood-like appearance due to the microscopic holes caused by the procedure. The next day you can wash your face. You may have imperfections in the skin for a couple of days, but most clients report you can easily cover this up with makeup. Because the PRP/PRF has so many healing properties, your healing is drastically quicker than performing micro-needling with a basic serum.
Since the PRP/PRF has many growth factors, it will stimulate collagen production and energize cells. You should experience a reduction in fine lines, an improvement in the texture and tone of the skin, and an improvement in dark pigmentation and scars.
Seychelles wants to make sure that this is the right procedure for you. We would love for you to come in for a complimentary consult.
