You may have already heard about a treatment known as a “vampire facial.” The name sounds cool, but what does this treatment actually involve? Vampire facials are revolutionary skin treatments that use your own blood plasma to rejuvenate your face. PRP therapy can restore elasticity and radiance to the skin that has been dulled by environmental factors and age.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a blood substance with growth factors that we purify and concentrate in the PRP formula-making process. This plasma’s platelets have many skin-healing and aesthetic benefits.
PRP therapy consists of several steps. The first step is the blood draw that provides the platelet-rich plasma for your facial. This procedure is no more complex than a routine doctor’s office blood draw. Our nurse practitioners are qualified to complete the blood draw under sanitary and safe conditions.
After we draw your blood, we’ll put the vial into a centrifuge machine. Centrifuging is a method of separating the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma needed for your facial. The centrifuge technology spins your blood vial at high speeds to separate these two components. This is how we isolate the platelet-rich plasma.
Once we have extracted the necessary blood plasma, we will perform a process called microneedling. Microneedling is a series of tiny injections into specific areas of your face. The small needle injections will deliver the platelet-rich plasma under your skin while also stimulating collagen production.
Collagen is your body’s natural source of skin elasticity. Collagen production slows with age and other lifestyle factors. When the microneedling device punctures your skin, it facilitates collagen binding to repair your skin. This generates fresh skin cells that improve the appearance of your facial skin.
The results of platelet-rich plasma microneedling are rejuvenated, glowing skin. The plasma restores radiance and youth to your skin using your body’s own blood. Combined with increased collagen production, this process will make your face look tighter, firmer, and brighter.
Benefits of PRP Treatment
There are many advantages to using PRP treatment to revitalize your facial skin. Other types of facials and injectable treatments run the risk of rejection, meaning your body may reject foreign substances. PRP therapy is an innovative skin treatment that provides positive results to aging, tired skin.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
PRP therapy is effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. If you have facial lines and wrinkles you’d like to get rid of, PRP therapy can help. The plasma injections soften the skin around the wrinkles to smooth out their appearance. Microneedling also boosts your skin’s ability to repair and smooth any damage, which further dissolves wrinkles and fine lines.
Uses Your Body’s Natural Elements
PRP therapy utilizes your body’s blood components to refresh and restore your skin. Therefore, there is no risk of complications from allergies, rejection, and other undesirable side effects. Your body will not reject its own blood, making PRP therapy a very safe treatment. If you value natural skin treatments, PRP therapy could be for you.
Evens Skin Tone
PRP therapy will even out your complexion and enhance your skin tone. The most common cause of dark spots is sun damage, but environmental toxins can take a toll on your skin as well. PRP treatment will provide these areas of your skin with fresh plasma that helps repair and brighten dark spots. If you seek a more even, bright complexion, PRP therapy can help.
Has No Downtime
One of the biggest advantages of PRP therapy is that it does not have a painful, complicated recovery process. You do not have to schedule downtime after your PRP treatment. You are free to continue your daily activities directly after PRP therapy. Since the procedure is non-surgical and does not require anesthesia, the risks are much lower than other medical spa skin treatments.
With proper sun protection and skincare, you can expect to see the results of PRP therapy for up to five months after your treatment. PRP therapy is a convenient procedure and produces desirable results that last. As soon as one week after your initial PRP treatment, you will begin to notice the improved quality of your skin. As your skin repairs and rejuvenates in the first few weeks after your treatment, you will see a brighter, more even, glowing skin complexion.
