Halloween is here and along with it, a professional skin treatment even Elvira herself would approve of: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), or the Vampire Facial, as it’s sometimes called. A treatment which utilizes the many healing properties found naturally in your own blood, PRP may help improve the appearance of a host of skin concerns, as well as help heal more significant injuries to the body, such as bone and soft tissue injuries.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is either a topical or injected treatment that uses a mixture culled from the patient’s own blood to trigger healing, hence the vampire reference. Because platelets contain proteins called growth factors, this treatment is highly suited to the skin, and has shown remarkable promise in the appearance of:
· Fine lines
· Moderate to deeper wrinkles
· Rough or uneven skin texture
Why Will It Benefit Me?
When performed by a licensed clinician, PRP is an ideal counterpart to professional skin treatments such as lasers or microneedling that will leave your skin looking smoother, firmer, and more visibly youthful. PRP is also safe for all skin types and tones and for most patients, results will be seen in as little as one week. Plus, recovery time is brief with little to no down time.
Don’t let the name scare you—Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a highly targeted, effective treatment for the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin texture. For more information and to set-up a professional treatment protocol, contact me for a private, complimentary consultation.
