What is PRP ( Vampire face lift )

PRP treatment for face is ideal for people that have wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scarring and dull skin. Results of this treatment give healthier facial appearance, eliminate wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. People get noticeable improvements in their skin texture and color with minimal downtime.

PRP or platelet rich plasma is also referred to as “Plasma Rich in Growth Factors”, “Platelet Gel” and “Platelet concentrate” in which higher concentration of platelets are suspended in meager amounts of plasma. Being a concentrated source of platelets, PRP is capable of stimulating the healing of soft tissues.

PRP treatment or vampire facelift is a treatment for facial rejuvenation that increase collagen production and tightens the skin. In this treatment, patient’s own blood is taken and its different constituents are separated.

The cutting edge PRP treatment for face is a 20 to 30 minute procedure. In this treatment, small amount of blood is drawn from the patient body and placed in a sterile tube. It is spun down in a centrifuge at a particular speed for 5 to 10 minutes to retrieve the most viable fibrin and platelets. Platelets are an important component of our blood that contains several proteins as well as growth factors that increase collagen production, tightens and rejuvenate overall skin.

This extracted fibrin and platelets of the blood are re injected into the affected area with very small needles as it contains growth factors which stimulate skin regeneration.

This treatment consists of three sessions each with an interval of 4 to 8 weeks. People who get PRP treatment for face pigmentations and rejuvenating the skin get noticeable improvement in the skin texture and collagen regeneration. Collagen regeneration takes 3 months and new collagen production continues to improve the overall appearance of the dermis.

As PRP is taken from patient’s own blood, there is no risk of infection or an allergic reaction. Mild swelling, redness or bruising may last for few days.

Acne scars are common among millions of people that are caused by inflammation, destruction of elastin and collagen or due to excessive collagen buildup. PRP treatment heals and treats scars affecting the soft tissues.

When PRP is administered, small needle is used to make small holes in the diseased tendon which causes the platelets to release growth factors that will help in faster healing. Direct injection helps to provide concentrated platelets to the particular areas that show extraordinary results. Platelet rich plasma contains higher concentration of platelets that leads to faster healing. PRP therapy is very promising in facial restoration and removal of acne scars.

Presence of growth factors in PRP injections activates and rejuvenates cells in our body, produces new cells and collagen to restore facial appearance. The treatment results may last for 18 months. Patients may experience mild discomfort at the injection sites for few days. Results are optimal when patients receive treatment from expert aesthetic surgeon.
