What Is A PRP Treatment?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an amazing treatment that restores your face’s shape, improves its texture and tone, and rejuvenates new and younger looking tissue. This treatment is also nicknamed the Vampire Facial because it uses the patient’s own blood to achieve its stunning results. This is achieved with a 4 step process.
1. Hyaluronic acid fillers will be injected to give your face a great shape.
2. A technician will draw your blood and then use a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. The growth factors in these platelets are activated so that they can increase the collagen and blood flow in your face.
3. The PRP is then injected into your face with micro-needling after a numbing cream has been applied to your skin and allowed to work. Micro-needling is an FDA approved electronic device that moves across the skin making pinpoint punctures, also called micro-injuries. In response to these punctures being done, growth factors are released and new collagen production is triggered.
4. The final step is recovery and maintenance where you will be instructed how to cleanse the face and you will be given products to use to condition the skin afterward.
