The treatment itself took about an hour. He only recommended one treatment for me but said for some it involves 3-4 spaced 1 month apart. I felt very safe having this done primarily because we were using my own blood, but I would not recommend having it done right before a special event. Be sure its 3-4 weeks before! I had this done on a Friday, and I was sent home with a blood-speckled face (it’s was my own platelet-rich plasma) I couldn’t wash it off till the next morning, and then had all weekend for the little bit of swelling to go away. The little bruising I was able to cover up with make-up but lasted a week, as I had forgot to go off of my Q-10 and vitamins he suggested me to do.
It has taken four to six weeks for me to see the treatment’s full results (collagen takes a bit of time to grow), but I can tell you that I saw benefits almost immediately. I’ve had a fair share of facials that left me wondering if the treatment worked! Trust me — you will never once question whether or not this treatment is effective.
Also, you need to know exactly who you’re working with to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch. I never questioned Dr Chesnut. I have seen some of his work he has done on some of my friends and I have to say I knew I was in very good qualified capable hands.
