Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP Therapy has been gaining popularity recently thanks to celebrities. This treatment is also sometimes known as the Vampire face-lift.
For those who are unfamiliar with the therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from your own blood. This plasma contains growth factors and healing agents. Using a small amount of blood, the doctor separates the platelets and activates them. These platelets are then injected into the face or scalp and get to work stimulating collagen, improving texture and elasticity, decreasing inflammation and promoting healing.
PRP therapy is an all-natural treatment that provides incredible anti-aging benefits. This treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles while adding volume to the skin. This creates a more improved and youthful complexion, giving you that healthy glow.
Dr. Yazdan believes a series of treatments yields the most effective results. Typically, 1 session on its own isn’t enough. We recommend 3-4 sessions for patients to see the results they were hoping for.
Here at Modena, we increase results by utilizing micro needling. Micro needling, also known as derma rolling, is a process in which thousands of micro incisions are made in the skin. The PRP therapy is then done right over the incisions. This increases absorption into the skin and helps the platelets penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. Micro needling has also been shown to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process by producing collagen and elastin. These two treatments work together to transform your skin’s appearance.
PRP therapy is good for both women and men. Those who are beginning to see signs of aging on their face and neck are great candidates for this treatment. If you would like to learn more about PRP therapy for facial rejuvenation, give us a call for a complimentary consultation.
