What is PRP
PRP, platelet-rich plasma, is an organic substance that is derived from your own blood. You may have heard of this collagen-induction therapy as a Vampire Facial. Platelets are an important essence of the blood, suited to wound-healing and tissue regeneration.
To rejuvenate the skin, platelet-rich plasma is separated from other cells in the blood. We do this here in the office using a special piece of equipment. The process takes only a few minutes, then we are ready for the next step.
The PRP Facial
PRP facials involve
The absorption of PRP regenerates the matrix of collagen simultaneous to tissue regeneration. In time, as collagen strands strengthen, the skin appears smoother, firmer, and more radiant. Most patients start to notice improvement within a few weeks of their first treatment. Depending on the desired outcome, three PRP facials may be optimal. These are scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart.
