In the aesthetic world, there are 2 types of Platelet Rich Plasma Therapies (PRP):
- NO NEEDLE Vampire Facial – This treatment typically combines Micro Needling with PRP. We offer a completely NEEDLE-FREE alternative with our new PRP-Infusion process. It is a completely pain-free procedure where actually 90+% of the PRP is delivered into the skin. With the conventional micro needling process much of the PRP often remains on the surface of the skin. Experience immediate tightness and enhanced results with our No Needle Vampire Facial
- Vampire Facelift – Combines dermal fillers (Juvederm, Bellafill) with our NO NEEDLE PRP to restore facial volume and rejuvenate the skin. Fillers act as scaffolding on which the new PRP-induced tissue growth occurs. Little to no downtime required.
Both are 100% natural treatments that use the patient’s own blood components (Platelets) to stimulate the renewal of damaged tissue in areas of the face, neck, décolleté, hands and body.
Why are platelets so special? They contain a number of growth factors that can stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. Fine lines & wrinkles are reduced, skin texture and sun damage improve, while skin damaged by acne, injuries and stretch marks heals.
For the procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn (two to 10 teaspoons, depending on the areas being treated) and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the other components of the blood. The PRP is then infused deep into the skin without needles or any discomfort to begin the skin rejuvenation and rebuilding process
Other Applications of PRP
Additionally, PRP can work synergistically with other rejuvenation procedures such as Botox or Dysport. Combining PRP with anti-aging treatments, such as VIVA Fractional RF or Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing leads to more enhanced treatment results and faster recovery. PRP is also highly beneficial to treat hair loss in men or women. It improves the function of hair follicles and stimulates hair growth.
What is Photoactivated PRP?
Our PRP Therapy is unique in that it incorporates a photoactivation process that further enhances the effectiveness of the Growth Factors contained within Platelet Rich Plasma. Studies in Asia and Australia have shown that PRP components are often dormant and require activation with low-level LED light to be fully functional. Furthermore, LED photoactivation also inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines. Reduced inflammation means faster recovery and less complications post treatment.
What are the Benefits of PRP?
THE NATURAL FACELIFT: PRP can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with traditional fillers to activate and rejuvenate your body’s cells and to trigger the production of collagen. This gives your skin a fuller, more youthful look. Because you are using your own growth factors, you are stimulating a more natural and long-lasting collagen growth than with traditional hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers like Restylane, Juvederm. By combining PRP with collagen-stimulating fillers such as such as Sculptra, Bellafill or Radiesse you are further enhancing their results.
FASTER RECOVERY POST LASER TREATMENTS: Additionally, PRP can be used post skin rejuvenation procedures such as CO2 Fractional Resurfacing, RF Fractional Skin Rejuvenation or any of our other Anti-Aging Skin Therapies to speed up the healing and skin restoration process.
HEALS BONE AND SOFT TISSUE INJURIES: Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections have been emerging as a treatment for joint pain and osteoarthritis for some years. But many orthopedic physicians have now found that photo-activating PRP prior to injection reduces pain even further — and accelerates healing. Patients begin to feel relief from pain within a couple of days – instead of weeks or months. The normal treatment protocol is one injection weekly for 3 weeks.
