Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation, often called a PRP facial or “vampire facelift,” is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure to make the face appear more youthful. This safe, effective procedure can help to alleviate puffiness around the eyes, sagging around the jawline, and any lines, wrinkles, or skin tone issues you may be experiencing.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is extracted from the body using a safe, minimal process. The process begins by extracting a small amount of blood from the body. This blood is then carefully spun in a centrifuge to separate the various components of the blood. Once the components have been isolated, the plasma and platelets are extracted as a fluid concentrate. This fluid is what forms the Platelet Rich Plasma, because the platelet content is more concentrated than in normal plasma.
What is the Facial Procedure Like?
Once the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is extracted from the body, we use the microneedling method to apply it to the face. Microneedling is a type of controlled, painless physical injury that is performed on the skin in order to trigger a healing and repair cascade. After numbing your skin with topical cream, we use a small roller with small needles to do the microneedling that creates hundreds of tiny channels in the skin. This first step injures the skin in order to provoke a healing cascade. In order to help speed and intensify the repair and rejuvenation of your skin, we massage and apply your own processed serum PRP to the skin.
How Does It Work?
The “vampire facial” has gained national popularity with celebrities and the general public due to its amazing effectiveness. The procedure is so wildly successful because it is based on proven science. The solution (PRP) that is placed onto the skin is a natural indicator to the body to grow new cells and heal existing tissue. This new cell growth can boost collagen, regenerate sagging or sallow tissue, and tighten any areas with fine lines or wrinkles.
