Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP?
Sometimes called the “Vampire Facelift”, the PRP procedure is gaining wide popularity across North America. This procedure uses your own blood to refresh your skin, smooth fine lines, and wrinkles, and produce new collagen.
How is Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP preformed?
A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm. The blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun so that it separates. After 15 minutes, we take the PRP from the centrifuge and inject it into the skin.
The platelet-rich plasma stimulates new collagen to form at the injection site because it is enriched with platelets, stem cells, and proteins that stimulate growth. Essentially, the plasma tricks your body into creating new collagen!
