Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) also known as “Vampire facial” is rapidly gaining in popularity. Commonly, it’s used as a skin rejuvenation treatment. In many cases, it’s used along with microneedling or other treatments. The latest PRP treatment is known as platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and has even more benefits. At InShape Medical, serving Cary, NC and the surrounding area, we offer both forms of PRP to help you look radiant naturally.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Blood consists of three main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelets are known for helping with blood clotting, but they also have a heavy concentration of growth factors known as proteins. Commonly, PRP is used in the healing process. In terms of aesthetic procedures, the platelets stimulate the tissue. Ultimately, it leads to mild inflammation that causes your body to produce new collagen. This makes your skin appear younger while giving you a more even complexion.
We also offer platelet-rich fibrin, which is a second-generation PRP. It consists of platelets and leucocytes that advance the healing process of both soft and hard tissue.
How Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Acquired?
We use your own blood for your PRP plasma treatments. First, we draw blood from you and use a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood cells. The heavy concentration of platelets is then recombined with the blood that remains. When we collect PRF, it’s a quick process. We want to get the blood into test tubes without any coagulation occurring.
Once we acquire the platelets, we use the solution either topically or via injection. It works by stimulating the production of collagen. It’s also beneficial during certain procedures like hair loss treatments, laser procedures, and microneedling. In addition, it can enhance filler procedures since it thins the skin and allows the filler to look smoother.
About Platelet-Rich Plasma Facials
As you age, you start losing volume in your face, in particular under your eyes, in your cheeks, and around your mouth. The loss begins happening in your 30s and worsens in your 40s and 50s. You’ll notice your skin and muscles will start stretching. This process occurs as a result of a loss in the production of collagen and elastin.
We slow down the aging process by stimulating collagen production, which can be done through PRP and PRF. These treatments help combat the first signs of aging such as a hollowed-out appearance under your eyes or deflated cheeks.
A platelet-rich plasma facial isn’t your average facial. During the treatment, our aesthetician injects your own plasma underneath your skin. It then stimulates the growth of cells along with collagen production to improve your complexion and the texture of your skin. It also restores lost volume in your face.
You won’t notice the results immediately. You might notice a bit of swelling at first though, which will subside within a few days. The results of the procedure can take weeks to months to notice since you’re waiting for your body to produce collagen.
What Are the Benefits of a PRP Facial?
Your own blood is helping you gain younger, smoother skin. Because it’s your blood, you don’t pose the risk of an allergy. Additionally, you don’t have the risk of your body rejecting the treatment. Results look natural since you’re naturally stimulating the production of collagen and aren’t adding any unnatural substances to compensate for lost tissue. You will also experience the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles with an overall “youthfull glow”.
