PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment

As we age, we notice many changes in our bodies. Many obvious changes take place in our skin. Do you have wrinkles and facial lines that you want to get rid of without surgery? Well, the vampire facial or plasma-rich protein (PRP) facial may be your answer. It triggers collagen production and, via micro-needling, it improves skin tone and texture.

What is the PRP Procedure for the Face?

The Aesthetician doing the procedure takes a sample of your blood and isolates the protein-rich plasma and platelets to create the PRP. A centrifuge is spun around to extract protein-rich plasma. The sample is then concentrated and called platelet-rich plasma (PRP).  

The first option, the plasma is spread on your face, after which micro-needling across the forehead and cheeks helps the face absorb proteins. Microneedling is a procedure that makes a series of superficial, tiny holes using sterile needles. Both the micro-needling and the PRP stimulate collagen growth.

The second option is called the vampire facial. This includes having the plasma injected into the skin like a filler. The original skin problem is attacked twofold – beneath the skin and on top of it.

PRP Benefits for Face

The PRP facial can be beneficial to people who have wrinkles, sun damage, or scars. By placing PRP back into the skin, cell proliferation is encouraged. This leads to an increase in elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin will look tighter, fuller, and smoother.

 Is PRP safe?

The PRP procedure appears to be safe, research has yet to find absolute evidence to the contrary. There may be some pain, swelling, or bruising after the procedure that goes away in a few days.

PRP Treatment for Hair

PRP therapy  for hair works by injecting the clients  concentrated platelet-rich plasma into the hair follicles, which stimulates and reactivates dormant or weakened hair follicles to produce thicker and healthier hair.

Thanks to this process, hair follicles are nourished and stimulated in the scalp, resulting in an increase in blood flow to the area. PRP hair treatment typically requires a series of 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and results may vary from patient to patient.
