    PRP Facial

    Platelet-rich plasma therapy for facial rejuvenation has been FDA-cleared for decades. This means treatments have stood the test of time. Furthermore, since this treatment uses your own blood, your body should be receptive to the treatment.

    The vampire facial or plasma-rich protein, triggers collagen production and, via micro-needling, it improves skin tone and texture.

    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials became popular with plastic surgery because of their role in wound healing. PRP has a high concentration of platelets. which allows for the formation and release of growth factors and active proteins that promote healing. It is widely used in facial skin rejuvenation.

    What is the PRP Procedure for the Face?

    PRP facials are not cosmetic procedures, but rather medical procedures. The person doing the procedure takes a sample of your blood and isolates the protein-rich plasma and platelets to create the PRP.

    A centrifuge is spun around to extract protein-rich plasma. The platelets are also removed. The sample is then concentrated and called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The high levels of growth factors in the PRP help the body to heal. Dermatologists began using PRP to promote the growth of collagen. Orthopedics inject PRP to heal joints of the knees, ankles, and elbows.
