The concentrated platelets are drawn up into a syringe. Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into the face.
Filler is also injected into the face during the session as well.
Most patients find the treatments comfortable with proper topical anesthetic. One session usually lasts approximately an hour.

Avoid significant massage of the area post injection unless instructed to do so by the provider. Avoid strenuous exercise or excessive heat or sun 24 hours post filler injection, as well as avoid excessive heat or sun for 72 hours. Avoid excessive salt or alcohol consumption after a treatment, as these can increase your chances of swelling. We also advise patients avoid dental work 2 weeks post filler injection.
