PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections have become very popular and for good reason!

It is a cosmetic procedure that uses the patient's own blood to promote skin rejuvenation and healing. Here's how it generally works:

1. Blood Collection: A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient's arm.
2. Platelet Processing: The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the liquid gold.
3. Application: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma, which is rich in growth factors, is then applied to the treated area with erby injecteing or coating the skin. 
4. Healing and Effects: The growth factors in the PRP stimulate new collagen and cell growth, which helps to improve the skin's texture, tone and hydration.

PRP can be used for several treatment options. Be sure to read on and discover all the different PRP Injection options.

PRP for Face Learning About the Vampire Facial

The Vampire Facelift is a little different than the Vampire Facial. The key difference is the PRP is injected along with hyalurinic acid filler with the facelift, whereas the vampire facial is Microneedling with PRP, which is used to glide the needles and penetrate in the channels or micro wounds. This results in collagen and skin stimulation. 

  • Vampire Facelift promotes volume and collagen from within
  • Vampire Facial focuses on texture

Results begin to show within a few weeks after the treatment during which time it is recommended that you maintain your normal skincare routine with medical grade skin care and prescription retinol.

For clients with sensitive skin, you will experience some bruising, but it will be mild and typically recedes within 7–10 days.

PRP for Hair Loss Hair Regrowth through PRP

PRP is a completely natural substance that promotes healing and strength. It stands to reason that it would work for your hair just as well as it does for your skin.

We have the results to prove it.

PRP treatments for hair loss consist of the same three-step process as treatments for facials. However, the PRP taken from your blood is injected into your scalp with the purpose of healing your body tissues and stimulating your follicles to grow. 

The platelet-rich plasma injected into the scalp triggers blood supply to the follicles. This helps increase the hair shafts' thickness. As a result, the hair that grows becomes thick and healthy.

PRP treatments for hair loss produce results within four weeks of the first course. If you have extensive hair loss, you will be required to have multiple sessions. With such promising results, consider your time and energy investment in your hair growth.

What To Expect During PRP Treatments

Our PRP treatments can be broken down into three steps:

  • Drawing Blood: A certified medical practitioner will draw some of your blood, which is typically taken from the arm—just like getting a blood test.
  • Isolation of PRP: Your blood is then put into a centrifuge that spins the sample to separate out the platelet-rich plasma from the red and white blood cells. This takes about 10 minutes.
  • PRP Injections: The isolated PRP will then be injected into precise areas of either the face or scalp to stimulate healing and/or hair growth.

Hair restoration PRP therapy consists of three to four treatment sessions (approximately 45 minutes each), with four to six-week intervals in between sessions. The precise number of PRP treatments needed for the skin will vary based on the skin condition and the size of the area being treated.

What To Expect After PRP Injections

After Service

For Skin:

Results will typically be visible within a week after the first facial. At this point, we encourage you to resume your normal skincare routine. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience mild bruising post-treatment, but this should disappear within a few days.

For Hair:

Hair regrowth will vary greatly per individual. In some cases, regrowth will show as early as six weeks after the first treatment session. It’s also possible that the treatment will not produce any hair regrowth, but will assist in maintaining existing hair strands.

To get the best results possible, we suggest taking these extra steps:

  • Complete all treatments as recommended
  • Evaluate your hormone levels for treatment optimization
  • Start and maintain Nutrafol for optimal hair and scalp health

How Is PRP Obtained?

PRP or platelet-rich plasma is obtained from your blood with the help of a device known as the centrifuge. The blood is stored in a vial and put in the centrifuge, which uses a gravitational force to separate various components of a liquid.

Is PRP Safe?

PRP treatments are perfectly safe. Aestheticians only use a small amount of blood for the treatment, and a local anesthetic is used to ensure that there is no discomfort for the client. This treatment is simple, reliable, and effective.

How Effective Is PRP?

Multiple studies conducted throughout the years show that PRP is not only effective, but also life-changing. PRP is widely used to treat torn ligaments and tendons. It boosts mobility and curbs pain for those experiencing joint and muscle issues. PRP is just as effective for cosmetic purposes.
