Your body already has everything it needs to combat aging, refresh the skin, and bolster healing. It just needs a little help from a licensed medical professional at Peninsula Glow Medical Spa! The power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is found in your very own blood, which we carefully draw out to access these vital growth factors.
PRP and PRF injections can address a variety of concerns, including hair thinning, eye circles, wrinkles, and more. They are a natural means of jumpstarting your body’s natural healing processes to reinvigorate the skin. The possibilities are endless when it comes to injections with PRP and PRF in Monterey!

Never stop any doctor-recommended prescriptions, but note that reducing alcohol and over-the-counter medications or supplements, such as ibuprofen, NSAIDS, and fish oil, up to one week before treatment can help minimize bruising and swelling post-treatment.

Sun exposure for 1 week

Frequently Asked Questions
Patients can request a local anesthetic to numb the area. You might feel a stinging sensation when we draw the blood or administer the injection. Many patients find treatments that use PRP or PRF in Monterey to be quite tolerable.
Since PRP and PRF boost your body’s natural healing mechanisms, it takes time for the new collagen and tissue to grow. Many patients see initial results after the first treatment, but results will fully develop in one to two months after treatment.
Other Treatments You May Like
Our vampire facial in Monterey combines PRP or PRF with microneedling to maximize your body's cell regeneration and bring a vibrant glow into your skin. And it's completely natural, as we only use PRP or PRF that originates from your own body!
RF microneedling utilizes tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin that initiate your body's natural healing response. The radiofrequency (RF) energy from the device further penetrates into the epidermis for increased effectiveness. As your body produces more collagen in the treatment area, it brightens and tightens the skin.
A PDO thread lift inserts tiny threads along the skin to tighten, lift, and contour the face and body, diminishing wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin. When these threads, made of polydioxanone (PDO), are anchored to skin and fat tissues in the face, neck, or chest, they provide structural support, creating a noticeable lifting effect.
