A procedure that started out as a way to speed up the healing of sports injuries has since gained popularity as a highly effective facial.
Plasma Rich Platelet facials (PRP), also called vampire facials, work to reduce signs of wrinkles, dark circles, sun damage, and scars. The aim is to tighten your facial skin for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
During Your Vampire Facial Treatment
At the start of your session, we draw some of your blood. The amount we draw depends on the amount and severity of the acne scars you want to heal.
We place the blood into a patented centrifugation system and convert it to platelet-rich plasma. The plasma is then injected into your scar areas to help speed up healing.
How PRP Speeds Up Healing
Doctors first used platelet-rich plasma to help people who underwent plastic and jaw surgeries. Today, a PRP facial is an attractive option if you’ve experienced any sort of soft tissue injury or trauma to your face.
It’s common for doctors to use PRP to reduce inflammation in the body caused by osteoarthritis, however, this therapy can also be used to reduce inflammation on your face that may be caused by skin conditions like rosacea, or acne scars.
Fast and Effective Healing
Since the injections contain high platelet concentrations, which is as much as 10 times more than untreated blood, plasma-rich platelet facials can speed up healing from an array of facial ailments and wounds.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
We usually suggest at least PRP healing treatments for facial conditions. You can book your vampire facials at monthly intervals to allow your skin time to heal and repair.
Some people require up to six treatments along with ongoing maintenance to help repair the skin and keep it fresh and clear.
The best way to decide whether or not a PRP facial will help speed up your healing is to book a consultation.
