What Is a Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial?


As we age, we notice many changes in our bodies. Many obvious changes take place in our skin. Do you have wrinkles and facial lines that you want to get rid of without surgery? Well, the vampire facial or plasma-rich protein (PRP) facial may be your answer. It triggers collagen production and, via micro-needling, it improves skin tone and texture.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials became popular with plastic surgery because of their role in wound healing. PRP has a high concentration of platelets. which allows for the formation and release of growth factors and active proteins that promote healing. It is widely used in facial skin rejuvenation.

What is the PRP Procedure for the Face?

PRP facials are not cosmetic procedures, but rather medical procedures. The person doing the procedure takes a sample of your blood and isolates the protein-rich plasma and platelets to create the PRP.

A centrifuge is spun around to extract protein-rich plasma. The platelets are also removed. The sample is then concentrated and called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The high levels of growth factors in the PRP help the body to heal. Dermatologists began using PRP to promote the growth of collagen. Orthopedics inject PRP to heal joints of the knees, ankles, and elbows.

The full effect of PRP facial treatments appears in a few weeks to months. PRP is given to enhance someone’s appearance, so the cost is not covered by medical insurance.

How Does the PRP Facial Work?

There are different ways to get the PRP facial. In the first option, the plasma is spread on your face, after which micro-needling across the forehead and cheeks helps the face absorb proteins. Microneedling is a procedure that makes a series of superficial, tiny holes using sterile needles. Both the micro-needling and the PRP stimulate collagen growth.

PRP Benefits for Face

The PRP facial can be beneficial to people who have wrinkles, sun damage, or scars. By placing PRP back into the skin, cell proliferation is encouraged. This leads to an increase in elastin and collagen production. As a result, the skin will look tighter, fuller, and smoother.

In the areas with deeper wrinkles and lines, the doctor may also choose to use hyaluronic acid fillers or neuromodulators. These are Botox®-like wrinkle relaxing injections. Fillers restore the volume to the face that is naturally lost with aging. Facial muscles are kept from contracting by the neuromodulators. The neuromodulators help to reduce lines that occur from muscle overuse. This is inclusive of crow’s feet surrounding the eyes. These products can be used together to treat the whole face.

Stem Cell Beauty…the future is here!

Stem cells are incredibly unique because they have the potential to transform into any kind of cell type within the body. They also have the power to regenerate and multiply. These characteristics are the reasons why so many scientists are obsessed with stem cells – when used to fight illness or disease, they can actually help the body regrow damaged tissue and heal itself from the inside out.

What does this mean in the world of facials? Well, just as stem cells can replace damaged joint, heart or liver cells, they can also regenerate skin cells. As we age, the integrity of cell walls diminishes and our skin becomes wrinkled, losing its elasticity, plumpness and radiance. A topical application of stem cells can breathe new life into aging skin and help your body replace damaged cells with new, more youthful looking skin cells.
