Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy aka “the vampire facial”, is used to improve texture, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and scars. PRP treatment involves a simple blood draw which is then spun down using a centrifuge that separates the plasma and platelet portion. The PRP is then injected or infused back into the skin to stimulate collagen and regenerate new tissue growth.
Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets also contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate cells in our body.
PRP treatment can be combined with MicroPen treatments, or injected into the face like a filler. Using PRP to treat the under eye area aka “tear troughs” is a very safe and effective way to correct fine lines, dark circles, hollowing, and dryness.
Fans of the Vampire Facial include celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Bar Rafaeli and Ferne McCann. Results often include a more youthful glowing complexion with improvements to the appearance of hyperpigmentation and acne scarring.
