PRP is a powerful rejuvenation treatment also known as “Vampire facial” because the main ingredient is patient’s own blood which is injected in a grid over an area of interest. This kick-starts the skin into a regenerative phase. The skin then attracts vascularity, deposits collagen and elastin, and takes on a more youthful character. It helps plump the skin to treat texture, fine lines, and volume. Women who have had the PRP facelift treatment find their faces look even better several months after the treatments because the plasma stimulates the skin’s stem cells to produce more collagen, grow new cells and literally rejuvenate the skin. The new cell growth in your skin generated by the PRP takes weeks to months, which is why it looks so much better after more time passes.
PRP & DARK CIRCLES
There can be many causes of dark circles under the eyes. But for those that are more pigment-related, platelet-rich plasma is injected under the skin around the eyes. Over time, the plasma stimulates the skin and causes it to go into a regenerative phase.
The plasma also scours skin pigments that create the circles and grows healthy skin to help remove the dark circles. For this purpose, one treatment is generally sufficient.
PRP & HAIR RESTORATION
PRP is being used more and more to awaken quiescent hair follicles and restore thinning hair. An application of PRP stimulates hair follicles to grow hair. It acts as an adjunct to hair replacement and thickens hair rather than growing it from a bald spot. This can be particularly effective along with the eyebrows and scalp.

The clinician withdraws a sample of the patient’s blood. The blood is placed in a centrifuge, separating and collecting the vital platelets. Then this plasma is injected into key areas of the patient’s face using micro-needling technology.
PRP treatment is made of the patient’s own blood, there’s little chance for an allergic reaction. Some patients report minor side effects like bruising, swelling, or itching. Usually, these symptoms go away on their own relatively quickly. Make sure to let your medical professional know about any pre-existing conditions you may have that could be agitated by the procedure. Our team of experts is always here to answer any of your concerns.
For a minimum of 12 hours after the PRP has been applied to your skin, do NOT: wash your skin, expose the treated area/s to direct high heat, or engage in activities that will get you wet or cause you to sweat (e.g. blow dryer, sun exposure, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, very hot shower, hot yoga, strenuous exercise, etc. ...
The PRP procedure is virtually painless. Most patients report only feeling an initial needle pinch. Sometimes patients may experience mild pain after the numbing cream has been applied, but the tenderness is usually confined to more sensitive areas like the mouth. It’s important to remember that pain tolerance varies from person to person, and vampire facials may be more uncomfortable for some patients.
PRP facials are especially helpful for people with sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. People with blood disorders or who need blood thinners should refrain from PRP treatment. Always let your medical professional know about your health history before deciding on PRP treatment.
