We all know blood contains platelets that are key in clotting & healing wounds. However, many don’t know that blood also contains fundamental growth factors designed to recover and heal. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses these regenerative growth factors by activating them to promote natural healing. This enhancement is done by stimulating the underlying tissue to speed up tissue and collagen production to create smoother/plumper skin and fuller hair.
The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover."
Typically, the process includes the initial blood draw, then running the blood through a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. You'll then receive microneedling or microdermabrasion just before your PRPs are slathered across your face.
You'll emerge from treatment a bit red, almost like a sunburn, which means post-procedure sunscreen is highly recommended. Applying makeup, though, is discouraged.
Are you a candidate?
Those with premature wrinkles, high levels of solar damage, or anyone who wants an even tone and fresher appearance to their skin, is an ideal candidate for the procedure.
As far as risks go, there aren't as many as you might think. In fact, the only risk you really run is bruising at the time of the venipuncture. Aside from the discomfort of a blood draw and bruising from injection or microneedling, the vampire facial is extremely safe, as it is your body's own blood being recycled.
Hair growth is a popular treatment choice for PRP. PRP stimulates hair follicles to produce a healthy environment to strengthen and thicken current hair follicles. PRP also speeds up the growth of hair transplants for clients who have done that procedure. Post-treatment, you may return to normal activity immediately; though the scalp may need protection from sun exposure and excessive irritation.
Please note, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Patients with an active infection related to the scalp area, history of a viral infection (shingles, blood-clotting disorder), on blood-thinning medications (aspirin, immunosuppressive drugs) would not be ideal candidates. As well, if the hair follicles are completely lost, this procedure is less likely to assist in producing viable results.
