The Essent PRP Facial for Acne Scarring is an advance medical facial for people who want to improve the appearance of their skin after severe acne. 


What is the Essent PRP Facial for Acne Scars?

For those who have suffered severe acne and continue to live with acne scarring, PRP combined with microneedling can be used to diminish those indentations or “pock” marks.  PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma promotes healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, without surgery, downtime, or artificial additives. By harnessing your own body’s healing and regenerative properties, you will experience dramatic results on the same day, with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months—even over a year—after the procedure.

What is PRP?


PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma often called “liquid gold”.  During this procedure, a small amount of your blood will be separated into its various components.  We will use an FDA approved method to separate your Platelet Rich Plasma from the rest of your blood cells.  Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors and a platelet-rich fibrin matrix which stimulate your body to repair and restore tissues using your body’s own natural healing and regeneration.

PRP  or Platelet Rich Plasma.  This is an all natural product that we isolate from your own blood.

During the Essent Blood PRP Facial, PRP is used to improve:

Skin tone and texture

Pore Size

Acne scars

Chicken Pox scars

Fine lines

Sun damaged skin

Brown discolorations


When PRP is used in the Essent PRP Blood FaceLift, Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is also used to treat the following:

Glabellar lines (the number 11 sign between the brow)

Forehead lines

Periorbital lines (crow’s feet)

Nasolabial folds

Smile lines

Acne scars

Vertical lip lines (lipstick lines)

Marionette lines (the ones that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin)

The Essent PRP Facial for Acne Scars is just one of the components of our Essent PRP FaceLift.  It is a great introduction to PRP treatments for those with less facial aging or budget constraints.

What will the PRP Facial for Acne Scars be like for me?

Upon arrival, we will discuss your problem areas and goals for this treatment.  A small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm.  This blood will be used to isolate your own PRP or “liquid gold”.  We will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to ensure your comfort during the procedure.  If you chose to do an advanced facial, about 3 to 5 syringes of your PRP will be injected into the subcutaneous space in up to three problem area (usually your deeper more severely scarred areas) on your face.  In both the advanced and introductory facials, the entire face will be coated in liquid gold and we will use the MicroPen to drive your PRP into the entire skin surface using micro channeling techniques.  Finally, a PRP mask will be applied followed by an ice mask treatment.

How will I feel after?

Your face will feel fuller and your skin may feel tight after the procedure.  You may note a flushed appearance to your skin.  May people say, their skin appears to “glow”. The following days, you may feel soreness.  This is normal.  If you notice any irritation to the skin, it can be safely covered with makeup starting the following day. Over the next weeks, swelling will decrease and some of the PRP will be reabsorbed by your body.  At the same time, new collagen will be stimulated resulting in improved facial appearance.  You will notice an improvement in your acne scarring. Results continue to develop over 6 months to one year. Many people like to repeat this procedure monthly for 3 months and then annual or semiannually after.

What are the Differences between the Advanced and Introductory Facial?

Both procedures require a blood draw to collect your own PRP.  Both the advanced and the introductory facial include a MicroPen Treatment with infusion of the PRP stem cells and growth factors into the deeper layers of the skin of the face.  However, the advanced facial involves additional placement of PRP in the subcutaneous tissues in your problem areas.  This is a more advanced, technically involved, and customized treatment.

Loved this spa and the experience. The tranquility room is beautiful and serene and it was a pleasure to wait there until my facial began. The facial was amazing. Loved the location in Wayne, and lots of parking. Online appointments make it so easy to schedule. I definitely recommend the facial.

My wife had an appointment and she loved the entire experience, she even extended the treatment an extra 30 mins. She raved about Stacey whom she said was phenomenal. the staff treated me great, they provided me with beverages, snacks and updates while I waited. I already have an appointment for my wife to go back in 2 weeks. She was very happy which makes my life happy!!!!

Look no further, THIS SPA IS ABSOLUTE PERFECTION! The massages are heavenly and the facials are the best! [I even brought my daughter in for her first facial - I wanted it to be done right! Thank you, Dr. Alison!] While there are a handful of nice spas on the Main Line, this really is a class above; gorgeous decor, truly RESORT-class! I usually only get massages on vacation and this definitely has that vibe. Check out the pictures! I've recommended it for co-workers traveling from out-of-state (NY'ers, Californians, Chicagoans) - they love it! Fabulous gift idea! Love this place!
