PRP Facial Injections
PRP facial injections are effective non-surgical treatments to rejuvenate your skin and reduce the evidence of facial aging. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is blood plasma that contains concentrated platelets, leukocytes and other growth factors. When injected into the skin, it stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, skin renewal, cell migration and tissue regeneration processes. The extra growth factors in the PRP solution help to speed up and enhance the body’s natural healing processes. Because of their rejuvenating potential, PRP facial injections are sometimes called PRP or stem cell facelifts.
Platelet-rich plasma is obtained from a small sample of the patient’s own blood. The concentrated platelets and plasma are separated from the whole blood in a centrifuge device in just a few moments. PRP is then injected throughout the face, sometimes in conjunction with a microneedling treatment or after a laser resurfacing procedure. Your natural collagen production and skin quality is enhanced over a period of 2-3 months.
Vampire Facials for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP facial injections are also popularly known as a vampire facial, referring to the use of the patient’s own blood platelets and growth factors for rejuvenation. This practice is now being widely used throughout the medical field to stimulate and speed up healing for a number of physical problems. Since the patient’s own blood is used, there is no risk of rejection or other allergic reactions to the treatment.
