Vampire Facial Treatment
The beauty industry is inundated with miracle creams and potions claiming to regenerate skin and reverse the signs of aging. Many of these products are quite expensive, and the investment does not always equal the outcome we desire. PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma) Therapy regenerates collagen and tissue creating a younger more revitalized appearance.
What is PRP ?
Platlet Rich Plasma is a new medical aesthetic treatment that regenerates tissue via enhancing the body’s natural healing capacity.
The procedure for PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma) involves spinning down the patient’s own blood, extracting the platlets, activating the platlets and injecting the platlets into areas of concern. Three treatments are recommended one month apart.
How it Works
The human body has a remarkable capability to heal itself. Platlets are the body’s first responders to injury. Platlets release a variety of factors that initiate and stimulate regeneration.
Who would benefit from PRP Treatment?
PRP has been found to be beneficial for crepe-like thinning skin, sagging skin, puffiness, age spots and wrinkling. PRP can treat aging skin on the following:
- Soft tissue of the face
- Upper arms
PRP also treats:
- Post pregnancy skin laxity
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Hair Loss
When will I notice results?
The full collagen regeneration takes 6 months. Improvement of skin texture and tone are noticeable within 3 weeks.
Minimal swelling, bruising and redness for the first 24 hours is normal. A bruise may develop from the needle injection site and should dissipate in a week’s time. Other side effects that could occur due to the needle injection are:
- Blood Clot
Factors that will reduce PRP’s effectiveness:
Smoking and alcohol intake will greatly diminish the effects of PRP treatment as these factors diminish stem cell release.Anti-inflammatory drugs should also be avoided as platlets work in an inflammatory state.
