PRP Therapy

Acne scars, sun damage, and deep-seated wrinkles shouldn’t be tolerated, especially if you feel less comfortable in your skin. At Smile-Chic, we can provide a revolutionary combo of treatments to stimulate and heal your skin through the use of platelet-rich plasma and microneedling.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is composed of two elements that have an essential role in our body’s healing process, plasma and platelets. In our blood, plasma makes up the liquid portion of our blood, while platelets are a type of blood cell that assists in healing, triggering cell reproduction and tissue regeneration. Platelet-rich plasma is created when our nurse practitioners separate the components from the patient’s blood samples, then are concentrated with the platelets and plasma.

This process produces an injectable solution that assists with healing and is often injected into various areas of the face to stimulate collagen production. At Smile-Chic, we go one step further and combine the effects of platelet-rich plasma with microneedling to enhance these effects.

How Does Microneedling Work With PRP?

Microneedling works to prick microscopic holes into the skin to stimulate the natural healing process, allowing the platelet-rich plasma to flow through those channels and head deeper into the layers of your skin. These tiny breaks, combined with the effects of platelet-rich plasma, can help reduce the appearance of fine facial wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and improves overall skin texture

These two treatments combined work as one of the best ways to create rapid collagen production in the skin. This treatment overall is well-suited for adults who want to improve their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. It comes with minimal side effects, such as swelling and redness, but after the first few days of recovery, patients often experience younger, glowing skin. It is recommended that patients receive between four to six treatments at an interval of four weeks apart to maintain their skin rejuvenation treatment.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
