Maffi’s PRP Duo combines PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections with a PRP Facial for a complete facial rejuvenation treatment.
The powerful growth factors found in PRP help to repair damaged skin cells and stimulate collagen production. Combining topical PRP with injected PRP “sandwich” the skin for the most powerful anti-aging results, infusing growth factors into several layers of the skin. Your skin will have a smooth, healthy, youthful appearance that continues to improve over time.
PRP Duo is a two-treatment process that begins with a PRP Facial. The skin is microneedled using a small hand-held device with tiny needles. Platelet rich plasma placed topically onto the skin’s surface absorbs into microchannels created by the microneedling, infusing into the full surface of the face and neck. PRP Injections follow the PRP Facial. The plasma is injected into areas designated for rejuvenation including under the eyes, nasolabial folds, lips and neck. The injection process places a concentrated amount of PRP into the deeper layer of the skin. This combination promotes healing both on the surface and deep within the layers of the skin.

PRP Duo QUESTIONS
As a noninvasive skin care treatment, PRP Duo can tighten the skin by improving collagen production, softening lines and wrinkles, and repairing age related damage. As you age, your body produces less collagen. Fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, creases, and parentheses at the corners of the mouth are a result of the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. By layering the skin with growth factors from PRP, cellular rejuvenation occurs both on the surface and deep within the layers of your skin.
PRP, platelet rich plasma, comes from your own blood. It is a concentration of one type of blood cell. Platelets contain growth factors, which help with tissue repair, regeneration of new cells and stimulation of collagen. Applying platelet rich plasma to areas of injury help to reduce inflammation and promote rapid healing. Because PRP comes from your own blood, there is no risk for an allergic reaction.
Prior to the treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the face. A small amount of blood will be drawn by one of our registered nurses. The sample is spun down in a centrifuge, separating the platelet rich plasma from the blood cells. Your aesthetician will cleanse your face in preparation for Microneedling. The Microneedling device will treat the skin, creating tiny punctures. PRP is applied to your skin and gently massaged in. Following this treatment, your Maffi Injection Clinic provider will inject the plasma into facial areas designated for regeneration. This can include under the eyes, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, and neck.
You should plan approximately two hours for a PRP Duo treatment. This will include numbing time and the blood draw.
There is little to no downtime with a PRP Duo treatment. After the treatment, you may feel like your skin has a light sunburn from the Microneedling. You may have some redness and light peeling. Mild peeling can occur for five to seven days.
For optimal results, we recommend three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. You will see improvements in your skin in the following three months from the continued stimulation of collagen and cellular repair. Results may last up to two years. Maintenance treatments may need to be scheduled every six to twelve months, depending on the individual.
