About the procedure
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Vampire Facelift is an incredibly effective tissue treatment using a small vial of the patient’s blood. Because blood is composed of red cells, white cells, and platelets, we isolate the plasma, which contains a concentration of plasma and rich growth factors that help stimulate new, and healthy tissue growth. Because the treatment uses the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk the patient will experience an allergic reaction.
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The Platelet Rich Plasma activates the stem cells that lie dormant in the skin on the face through certain growth factors found in the platelets.
When injected into specific areas of the skin, it promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates a smoother skin texture and tone.
Prior to the procedure taking place, you will receive a complimentary consultation, we will go through your medical history, find out what aesthetic look you are looking for, if the procedure is right for you and address any concerns you may have.

Two to three treatments are recommended for achieving ideal results
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, and soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 1-2 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Two to three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
