Twilight Facials for Improved Skin
Your own body may hold the key to your best skin ever!
Twilight facials combine super-science and the natural healing properties of your own blood for a more luminous, younger-looking you.
A Twilight facial combines platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies and microneedling. Both treatments are trusted, effective methods of stimulating collagen growth and increasing cell turnover. Using them together creates amplified, supercharged results!
Patients see a natural but dramatic reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, improved firmness and more radiant skin.
What is PRP?
PRP is a concentrated serum created from a patient’s own blood. PRP contains high levels of platelets, the blood cells that cause blood clots and other necessary growth healing functions. Platelet activation plays a key role in the body's natural healing process. Using a concentration of a patient’s own platelets is a safe and effective way to accelerate healing and encourage new cell growth.
While PRP is relatively new to aesthetic treatments, it has been used to speed healing after joint and muscle injuries and surgery. The growth factors in PRP help the body to heal.
What Happens During a Twilight Facial?
During a Twilight facial, microneedling creates a series of tiny, superficial punctures using sterile needles. These tiny punctures funnel the PRP to the deeper layers of skin.
First, we draw blood from your arm and place the sample in a centrifuge, a machine that separates the platelets from the rest of your blood. This creates the PRP serum.
After creating the PRP, we spread the serum over the skin of the treatment area, then use microneedling to help your skin absorb the proteins at and below the surface.
The Twilight Facial can also be customized with other growth factors and peels.
The entire procedure takes about an hour.
Twilight Facials Can:
- Reduce wrinkles
- Plump up sagging skin
- Get rid of deep creases
- Improve one’s complexion
- Diminish acne scars
After treatment, there is little to no downtime, so you can typically resume your normal routine immediately. Each patient is sent home with a customized healing serum to use on their face that will aid in the healing process.

How Long Until I see the Results of My Twilight Facial Treatment?
As collagen rebuilds over time, the full effects appear within a few weeks to months.
How Long do Twilight Facial Results Last?
Results can last up to 18 months. Collagen in the deeper layers of the skin continues to age, so the effects of a PRP facial will gradually fade.
How Many Twilight Facials Will I Need for the Best Results?
The number of treatments required will vary with the skin’s current condition and the desired results. Patients are generally happy with results after one, two or three treatments. However, we can repeat a Twilight facial as a “tune-up” for continuous improvement or to maintain results.
Can I Combine Other Treatments With a Twilight facial?
This treatment can be (and is best) combined with BOTOX, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane, BBL™, peels and an excellent at-home skin regimen.
Who can Have PRP Rejuvenation?
Because PRP treatment uses your own blood, it is considered safe for most people.
We do not recommend a Twilight facial for those who have any of the following:
- Blood clotting disorder
- Cardiovascular disease that requires blood thinner medication
- Hepatitis C
- HIV or AIDS
- Any blood cancer
- Skin cancer in the treatment area
These conditions can affect your platelets and healing abilities, making treatment less effective.
Are There Side Effects?
Some patients experience mild pain and slight post-treatment bruising from the microneedling.
Side effects are short-lived because combining PRP with micro-needling speeds up the healing process.
Immediately after treatment, the treated skin may feel as though you have a light sunburn. This flushed coloring and slight tightness typically last only about 24 hours. By the next day, the skin is typically back to its natural tone but may feel slightly rough.
During your consultation, we will discuss what to expect after treatment and how to care for your skin for optimal results.
