Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the “Vampire Facelift”, works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers may reverse the aging process, reduces wrinkles, rejuvenates skin and improve facial appearance. PRP treatment for face is a new therapy that is an alternative of various other non invasive treatments. Patient’s own blood cells and plasma have regenerative properties that boost collagen production, therefore, can be used as anti aging treatment.
PRP treatment involves injecting growth factors in the facial skin to repair or rejuvenate it. This non surgical procedure is effective for getting youthful appearance. This procedure uses patient’s own blood; therefore, the results are safe with no chances of infection. It also stimulates collagen that improves skin health.
Doctors take out a blood sample and put it in a centrifuge to separate platelets. Platelets contain a high content of growth factors such as proteins that help to heal the damaged skin.
The facial area to be treated is cleansed and a cream is applied to reduce discomfort. Platelet rich plasma is then injected with a very fine needle. This helps to get a smooth, plump and wrinkle free appearance. The whole process takes 30 minutes to complete. Best results are obtained if the patients complete three sessions.
Purpose of PRP Treatment:
PRP treatment for face can be used to treat numerous problems such as fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, saggy jowls, and dull skin.
After the procedure, patients may experience some bruising, swelling and redness at the injected areas. However, these side effects will dissipate after a couple of days. Patients can resume their normal activities in a couple of days after the treatment.
