PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
PRP is a procedure that uses your own blood. It consists of a solution of platelet cells, proteins, and growth factors which are used for regeneration. The platelets are rich with materials that rebuild tissue as well as heal your body. Because PRP uses your own blood, no foreign chemicals or synthetic chemicals are used. The risks of other side effects are minimal.
How Vampire Facial PRP works
Blood is drawn (like a normal blood test) and prepared. This takes about a half-hour and is done when you visit the office. A centrifuge is then used to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. The platelets are kept and then either applied topically or injected into the face using micro needling techniques. The plasma is supposed to help with skin cell growth and collagen. A fluoroscope is used to guide the injection into the right spot.
The benefits and risks of PRP
The procedure is minimally invasive. Patients often see results fairly quickly. PRP is generally a safe procedure.
Because you’re using your own blood, you shouldn’t have an allergic reaction. Risks include bleeding, damage to a nerve, and infection.
