You’ve heard of the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, also called the Vampire Facial at licensed medical spas like Beautique, and you’ve even seen how effective it is for many celebrities seeking rejuvenated skin. But you still haven’t tried this age-defying treatment for a few reasons: Maybe you’re not sure if it works, or you’re wondering how it works. Maybe it’s a little scary. We’re here to help you understand how this revolutionary process produces stellar results and why it’s the must-try treatment of 2019.
How Does PRP Work?
Plasma has been widely used in the medical field to promote healing and wound care. Now the beauty industry has discovered its benefits. PRP utilizes the healing properties of plasma to rejuvenate and restore youthful skin through the promotion of collagen growth. Using a patient’s own plasma, we are able to strengthen the skin. To begin with, we take a blood sample from the patient and place it in a centrifuge, where plasma is separated from red blood cells. The concentrated, plasma-rich sample is then injected into the patient’s skin. The treatment is fairly quick, and because we use microneedling, there is little discomfort. It even causes less trauma to the skin than other fillers.
Benefits of PRP
PRP calls on the skin’s natural healing response to promote collagen growth. Think about the way your hands feel several weeks after you begin a workout program with weights: The skin is exposed to a tough surface, and it responds by naturally healing itself and becoming stronger by promoting new growth. We see this in the formation of calluses on our hands and feet. With PRP, you see the results in returned smoothness and elasticity to the skin with the use of plasma. Post-treatment, you can expect to see the softening of fine lines and wrinkles, smoother skin texture, and a reduction in the appearance of acne scars as long-term collagen growth is stimulated, When combined with LED light therapy and skin care products recommended by your esthetician, the benefits of PRP are clear to see and feel.
