PRP For Facial Rejuvenation

The procedure

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection therapy is a new, regenerative treatment option for Aging Facial Skin.

This therapy has also been a successful treatment modality in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and sports medicine.

PRP Injection Therapy is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves and restores healthy, radiant and youthful looking skin. When the serum is inserted into the skin through microneedling, this causes small injuries that activate the factors in your blood and allows them to do what they do best: repair the tissue in that area by releasing healing proteins. When growth factors are extremely above their normal concentration, it boosts the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.
Essentially, this treatment encourages the body to use its own natural healing process in the areas that need more help.

In cosmetic medicine, facial injection therapy is used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue; in order to obtain naturally smoother and tighter skin.

How it works

Facial PRP injection therapy, also known as the vampire facial or facelift, is a simple and near painless procedure which uses factors drawn from your own blood, to stimulate new cell growth and reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines.

Your blood has a variety of growth factors and substances with reparative and healing properties. The procedure puts a small quantity of your blood through a proprietary process to separate the growth factors, and creates a facial injection meant to reduce the signs of aging by revitalizing facial tissue.

It is used on the face, neck and hands to repair sun damaged or ageing skin by naturally stimulating your own body to regenerate itself.

The therapy is non-surgical, with little to no side effects or risk of allergic reaction.

Benefits Of PRP Facial Injections

Facial injections stimulate cell growth in the applied area, and aids the healing process in the face, without the use of chemicals or foreign substances. Described as the ultimate biological facelift, the PRP facial Injection does not cause allergic reactions or infections, because the applied factors come from the patient’s own body.

Increased Collagen Production
Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines or moderate wrinkles, there’s a good chance that a PRP facial injection will enhance the quality of your skin. When skin cell trauma occurs, an increase of collagen is produced. This occurs during a vampire facial when the minuscule needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the microneedling portion of your treatment.

Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a PRP facial injection. These common signs of aging are diminished substantially, as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by the treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.

Tighter, Firmer Skin
Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt. Collagen plumps up the skin. Patients often use a PRP facial injection to plump up their lips, while others use it to re-contour their cheeks without the need for an invasive medical procedure.

Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture
If you have scars due to acne, surgery, injury, stretch marks or other forms of skin imperfections, you can benefit from facial injection therapy. A PRP facial injection promotes old skin cells to give birth to new, healthy cells, thus improving the tone and texture of your skin.

Lasting Results
Some anti-aging treatments last only a week or two before you need to receive them again. Contrastingly, you only need to get a PRP facial injection every year or two to retain your youthful look. Even better, you need fewer treatments with a vampire facial than traditional microneedling to achieve your ideal aesthetic.

Procedure details

01 - Process
When you first arrive at your appointment, we will begin with a simple blood draw, just like a routine blood test. Then, using a proprietary technique, factors from your blood will be separated and concentrated into a serum that will be injected into your skin. We will apply an anaesthetic cream beforehand to reduce discomfort. The therapy consists of injecting the growth factor serum into the target areas. When combined with microneedling, multiple superficial microscopic perforations are made in the facial skin and the prepared serum is gently applied onto the area.
02 - Duration
You will be at the clinic for under an hour including time for the blood draw and processing. The injections themselves take about 5 minutes.
03 - Sensation

A local anaesthetic cream is applied so you may just feel a pinching or sensation of pressure as the injections are done.

04 - Recovery
The downtime for PRP Injection Therapy varies from person to person, but patients typically notice a significant improvement after the first two or three days. Following the treatment, you may experience redness, bruising and swelling. Cold compresses can help reduce discomfort.
05 - Side Effects
There are no known side effects or complications from the treatment, other than what may occur with any routine injection.
