Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatments
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance produced by our own bodies, which can be extracted and directly injected into the skin to promote healing and reverse the physical signs of aging. PRP is a product of your own plasma-rich blood.
The reason why plasma is so ideally suited to promoting healing is that it contains proteins that help the blood clot, therefore promoting cell growth. Before an injection, we isolate this plasma-rich blood and concentrate it. PRP injections are among the numerous anti-wrinkle injections offered by Taissa Sekret and the Medical Aesthetics Ottawa team.
After getting PRP in Ottawa, your body will begin healing itself. This healing can manifest in terms of facial rejuvenation, specifically in the form of fewer wrinkles and plumper skin. PRP treatments can also be used to promote hair growth in clients who are experiencing hair loss.
You may have heard of PRP facials in Ottawa and beyond, which is sometimes referred to as a vampire facial. While the idea of using your own blood to improve the look of your skin might sound wild, you’ll know exactly why this has become such a popular treatment solution for facial rejuvenation once you see the results possible with a PRP facial. You’ll want your own go-to vampire facial in Ottawa, close to home and in a comfortable office wherein you’ll be attended to by Medical Aesthetics Ottawa’s professional yet friendly team.
Every PRP treatment begins with plasma collection via an ordinary blood extraction—a simple blood draw. The plasma-rich blood is then separated from the rest of your blood, since only that plasma-rich blood will be used in your treatment.
Next, we’ll numb the treatment areas before injecting the PRP.
Then your body will take over and do the rest of the work for us. The platelets injected, for example, will break down and release growth factors that foster cell repair and growth.
Following treatment, our clients tell us their skin has become tighter, plumper, and more vibrant. If you’d like to explore what our PRP injections in Ottawa (or any of our cosmetic injections in Ottawa, for that matter) can do for you, Medical Aesthetics Canada offers complimentary consultations and complimentary virtual consultations.

What should I expect from PRP?
The treatment can take up to 90 minutes and requires combining your blood and plasma, alongside other techniques in order to trigger collagen production in the skin. The procedure is relatively painless as anaesthetic cream is applied to the face before the treatment. You may feel some discomfort when you are having your blood drawn initially, but this depends on your tolerance. If you are uncomfortable at any part during the procedure, just let your practitioner know.
Your blood will be taken in order to extract your platelets, small blood cells which play a role in the repair of damaged blood vessels and cells. The protein-rich plasma is then extracted from the blood using a centrifuge and applied to the face with microneedling techniques, enabling it to be fully absorbed into the skin.
This facial has transformative benefits that can improve the overall quality of your skin and you can expect to see results within a week of receiving the PRP treatment in Ottawa.
How Should I Care For My Skin After PRP Treatment?
In order to maximize the benefits of the facial, you should avoid wearing make-up for around two days after treatment. During this short period of recovery time, you may experience facial redness, which can be addressed by hydrating your skin with a light moisturizer. Wearing sunscreen with at least SPF 30 for the two days following treatment is highly advised as your skin is extremely sensitive during this time.
