All About PRP (platelet-rich plasma)
WHAT DOES PRP FACIAL REJUVENATION INVOLVE?
Our blood is made of plasma, red and white blood cells, and platelets. These platelets help our blood clot and produce growth factor proteins that are essential for healing. PRP facial rejuvenation uses platelets from your own blood to help heal and renew your skin.
PRP IS ALSO USED AS AN EFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR HAIR RESTORATION
To start this process, a professional will draw a small vial of blood from you, and it will be placed in a centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the blood. This concentrates the platelet count to many times higher than usual, and the result is amazing. From there, it can be used to address skin complaints.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Do The Results Of P Facial Last?
Because cosmetic treatments are dependent on the overall skin quality of each patient will influence the longevity of your results. At the very least, you should experience results, especially after your first treatment, for around 6 to 12 months.
For the longest-lasting results, then you should work with one of our skin care experts to create a long-term skin care plan that includes multiple PRP facial treatments. Your lifestyle, age, genetics, and other factors will also play into how good your results are and how long they’ll last.
How Often Should I Get Prp Face Treatments?
To get the best results possible, it’s recommended to get PRP injection treatments for at least 3 months in a row. Of course, this may vary depending on how well your skin responds to the platelet-rich plasma treatment.
Is PRP Better Than Botox?
It depends on what you want from your aesthetic or cosmetic treatments. Botox works best for preventing fine lines, wrinkles, dynamic wrinkles, and other small signs of aging. However, PRP facial rejuvenation treatments work best for patients who are looking for ways to increase collagen production and improve the overall quality of their skin.
Botox injections work well to relax and inhibit the nerves that cause dynamic wrinkles on your face. But PRP injections will help your cells reactivate and restore your skin’s natural layers of collagen, elastin, and more.
Is PRP Better Than Microneedling?
Platelet-rich plasma injections actually work even better when combined with a tried and true technique like micro-needling. However, something we’ve found in our practice is that by combining micro-needling treatments with PRP injections, we can help patients experience amazing results.
Can A Vampire Facial Make You Look Younger?
Yes. Although it might not be as effective as feeding on the souls of the innocent or consuming the blood of seduced victims. But considering it uses your body’s own natural healing abilities, and not necromancy, it does a good job.
When the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the skin, it stimulates the body’s collagen production. As well as adding natural growth factors to further improve your body’s healing abilities.
Why Is Collagen So Important?
Collagen is a protein that is like a latticework in your skin that provides structure in the different layers of your skin. Additionally, this protein makes up your nails and hair.
When the collagen begins breaking down in your skin, you get more lines and wrinkles. Typically, your collagen production will begin to slow down around the age of 25. After that, you’ll start seeing more fine lines and wrinkles appearing on your skin.
For women, after they go through menopause, their natural collagen production slows down even more.
Is PRP For Skin Treatments Permanent?
Technically, no. But after completing a full treatment plan, and with proper aftercare, you should see results for up to three years.
How Do I Maintain My Vampire Facial Results?
Following through with all of your aftercare instructions and maintaining your regular skincare routine will help you see optimal results about three months after the initial treatment.
After that, you can schedule additional PRP facial treatments, with or without microneedling to keep renewing your results. What’s great about PRP treatments is that since they use your body’s own healing factors, you can schedule repeat treatments as soon as you notice your results fading.
What Does Vampire Facial Aftercare Look Like?
After your facial you should avoid touching your face for at least 6 hours.
Avoid applying makeup on your face until the next day.
Take special care not to irritate your skin by touching it. If you do need to touch your face, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water.
Don’t rub the skin, especially when washing and drying your face.
Use pain relievers like ibuprofen and acetaminophen to reduce any discomfort after the treatment. Especially if you notice pain or swelling lasting longer than 24 hours.
You can apply cold compresses wrapped in a clean dry towel to help reduce swelling and discomfort as well.
Plan to sleep on your back with your face slightly elevated for at least two days after your treatment.
You should also avoid using any kind of exfoliating cleansers on your face for about three days or 72 hours.
You should still moisturize your skin as part of your treatment aftercare.
