PRP FOR ACNE & SCARS

The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) facial, popularized as the ‘vampire facial’ is a treatment that uses the plasma from your blood to help stimulate skin cell regeneration in the area it’s applied. PRP is being tested as a possible treatment for hair loss. PRP may also speed up wound healing. A few dermatologists are using PRP to give patients younger-looking skin.

PRP is perfect to:

  • Reduce wrinkles
  • Plump up sagging skin
  • Get rid of deep creases
  • Improve one’s complexion
  • Diminish acne scars
  • Stimulate tissue regeneration
  • Increase collagen production
  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Restore a healthy glow to the skin
  • Reduce cellulite

Your blood consists mainly of liquid plasma, with smaller amounts of solid components like red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets help to clot blood, and also contain important healing proteins. Our doctor creates platelet rich plasma by drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate platelets from the other components. This concentrated plasma can then be used in a variety of treatments to encourage healing and stimulate cell growth.

  • Vampire facial – PRP is applied to the skin through microneedling. This treatment is ideal for overall skin rejuvenation, including improvement to scarring, fine lines and brown spots. This option is more superficial than the facelift.
  • Vampire facelift – PRP is combined with a dermal filler and injected into the skin. This treatment is ideal for patients hoping to improve volume loss and add youthful height and curves to their cheeks. The filler adds lift and volume, and the platelet rich plasma helps build collagen scaffolding over time to support new volume.
