Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)

Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)

If you have ever wanted a facelift but were too afraid to go under the knife, PRP can be a great solution for you.  

Also known as the vampire facelift, this is a non-surgical treatment in which a mixture of natural fillers and plasma from the patient’s own blood is injected into specific areas of the patients face.  It smooths out lines and wrinkles in your face, using only natural products from your own body.
The vampire facelift is relatively a new procedure and is very popular with celebrities.

This kind of procedure is used by people who don’t want to use Botox and would prefer a more natural approach.

Platelet-Rich Plasma has been utilized in aesthetic medicine to rejuvenate and slow down the aging process and face.
PRP is the source of concentrated platelet content present in blood.  Apart from assisting blood clotting, platelets also release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue.

Today, platelet rich plasma can easily be separated from blood through a process of centrifugation.  Using your enriched plasma permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently.  Because your plasma is used, there is no danger of disease transmission, anaphylaxis or neoplasia.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The PRP treatment takes approximately 30-40 minutes to perform.  Before the procedure is performed, your doctor needs to draw blood from the patient with a syringe just like when you go for a blood test. The platelets are then separated from the blood.  The platelets are then injected into the areas the areas the patient has requested, such as the cheeks, mouth lines and under the eyes etc.
As for recovery time, your face may be a little red afterwards, but it will go away in a few hours.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A PRP TREATMENT?

There are many benefits of having the PRP treatment including a smoother and brighter face.  Also the PRP treatment is a lot less expensive than other, similar types of skin tightening procedures.  There are no known side effects and your body easily accommodates the filler because it’s made from your own blood.  Also there is a theory that using your own body tissues will cause your tissue to regenerate collagen.
