Thanks to the Kardashians, the PRP facial rejuvenation treatment, or “vampire facelift,” has risen in popularity in recent years.
The nonsurgical procedure involves drawing blood from your face, separating out the liquid and plasma, mixing the plasma with hyaluronic acid, and then injecting the combination back into your skin. While it does sound, well, vampire-esque, the treatment stimulates a healing response in the skin – leaving a glowing, smooth completion.
Skin’s Aging Process
As we age, our body loses the ability to properly circulate blood in the face, resulting in a dull or gray complexion. Additionally, the skin lacks the elasticity it once had, which leads to droopy, saggy skin and a loss of strong lines and contours. This is due to the decreased collagen and muscle tissue in the face.
Because of the vampire facelift’s use of your own blood cells to revitalize and restore the skin, the results are natural, immediate and long-lasting.
This famous facial rejuvenation treatment has gotten a lot of media attention, and that’s because of its impressive results. As mentioned above, the procedure requires drawing a patient’s blood to create the PGHP serum, which is then re-injected into the treatment areas. As the dermal filler replenishes your contours, the PRP stimulates healing and blood circulation.
Alone, fillers reshape the face beautifully, and alone, PRP therapy gives the skin a youthful glow. Together, the two turn back the clock for patients who are struggling with signs of aging, and helps restore lost facial volume and skin texture. While this treatment is most commonly used on the face, other variations of PRP therapy include breast augmentation and therapeutic injections to increase sexual response and performance.
