NATURAL SKIN REJUVENATION
PRP FOR SKIN REJUVENATION
(Vampire Facial ™)
Rejuvenus Clinic provides an extensive array of cosmetic treatments to our patients, including PRP Facial Rejuvenation, also known as The Vampire Facial ™. PRP Facial treatments are relied on to rejuvenate the skin and erase signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds of skin.
PRP therapy has the effect of restoring a new layer of collagen and elastin under the skin. This treatment helps revitalize and rejuvenate one’s skin, replenish your face with new healthy cells. Whether it’s irregular pigmentation, sun-damaged skin, enlarged pores, or fine lines, this heralded treatment is a one-stop solution for all concerns.
WHAT IS THE PLATELET RICH PLASMA FACIAL?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment method, which utilizes the components of your own blood to regenerate your skin. PRP is human blood that is spun down and separated producing a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and platelets above normal values. Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood, but they also have great potential in enhancing healing of muscle, tendon, and ligament. Growth factors released by platelets recruit reparative cells, augment tissue repair, and accelerate soft tissue healing.
In cosmetic medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue; in order to obtain naturally smoother and tighter skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is used in medical aesthetics as an effective method for Facial/Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Restoration. Since the PRP is the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction. It is this natural healing response of the body that makes PRP effective.
PRP begins with a small sample of your blood being drawn. It is then placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelets & plasma from your red blood cells. Once separated, the Platelet-Rich Plasma is then extracted and ready to be used as an injection treatment.
Once injected into your treatment area, the platelets begin their natural healing process by generating a fibrin mesh, activating the healing and growth factors in your body. The result is a fuller, younger looking you–all from using your own cells and nature’s healing process.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
When you will first arrive at your appointment, we will begin with a simple blood draw, just like a routine blood test. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets and plasma will be separated and concentrated into a serum that will be ready to be applied on the skin. We will then apply an anesthetic cream on your face. Once the anesthetic cream takes effect, we will begin the treatment.
The treatment consists of making multiple superficial microscopic perforations into the facial skin with a microneedling pen (called a Dermapen) and then gently apply the Platelet Rich Plasma serum onto the microneedled area.
The Vampire Facial™ is virtually painless and can treat most skin types. The procedure is quick, lasting approximately 15 minutes. However, overall appointment duration will be about 1 hour for blood drawing and processing, as well as anesthetic cream application.
