What is PRP / Vampire facial?
The vampire facial, also known as the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is done using your own drawn blood that is centrifuged to separate the platelet-rich plasma which is then applied directly to the skin. The platelets are high in growth hormone, and the microneedling stimulates the skin to regenerate. The entire procedure stimulates cell turnover.
What is PRP used for?
Traditional microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and other forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP injections may boost these effects and help you achieve your desired results faster. It can be used under the eyes as well to improve circulation and stimulate collagen growth.
By using platelet-rich plasma, the micro-injuries to the skin are healing as they are inflicted, reducing downtime to 24 hours or less.
How long does a PRP facial last?
Botox and other filler treatments break down with time, but the Platelet Rich Plasma lasts and looks better as long as 18 months to two years.
Does PRP work for wrinkles?
Yes, PRP lessens the appearance of wrinkles and stimulates new collagen growth.
Does PRP tighten skin?
When the PRP is injected into specific areas of the skin, it acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow and regenerate tissue. It also speeds up the skin’s repair process, results in smoother, tighter skin, lessened scarring, and improved skin tone.
Is PRP safe?
Yes. It is drawn from your own blood so there is no chance of having an allergic reaction.
