Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial Rejuvenation (aka Vampire Facial) is a leading-edge procedure that harnesses the healing power of platelets and growth factors to stimulate an anti-aging response. PRP is an extract of your own blood, that contains 4-5x concentration of platelets and growth factors. When PRP is placed back into the skin by injection, a localized healing response is initiated. This response stimulates collagen production which provides tightening and toning of your skin reducing fine lines, improving volume loss, minimizing acne scarring and healing rosacea.
The treatment itself is relatively painless as a numbing cream is applied to the face prior. Three treatments are recommend, 1 month apart, with a yearly treatment for maintenance. Within a few weeks an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after 3-6 weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next 3-6 months. The effects of Cosmetic PRP can last 1-2 years depending on the individual.
