Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Heard of the “Vampire Facial” or “Vampire Facelift”? The Platelet Rich Plasma facial is one of the latest regenerative therapies being brought to skin care, and being made popular by Hollywood (Kim Kardashian had one during Kim and Kourtney Take Miami and gift certificates for the “Vampire Facelift” were even given away in the 2013 Oscar goodie bag!). The Platelet Rich Plasma is harvested from the patient by a medical professional, therefore considered low risk for the patient. The process behind this specialized treatment is that the patient’s own platelets amplify the the skins ability to correct flaws brought on by aging, and circumstance. The PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the your own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin. This can be done by either injecting the PRP into the area(s) of concern, micro needling the PRP into the skin, or both. It is the gold standard in skin rejuvenation. Treatments can be done a month apart.
