Platelet Rich Plasma facial rejuvenation is also known as PRP or the vampire
facial… creepy huh? So how does it work?
To put it simply it is the process of extracting your own blood – after the extraction the blood immediately goes through a process using a special centrifuge, which concentrates and separates the platelet-rich-plasma from the rest of the blood.
This concentration of PRP then has three to five times the higher amount of platelets, growth factors and active proteins for tissue and injury healing which is then injected or reapplied into the skin using a micro-needling device.
The effects of PRP rejuvenation are said to heal the likes of acne scarring, rosacea, working to reduce fine lines, tighten and tone skin, reduce crows feet and also stimulate collagen in the skin.
Not to mention the extensive use PRP has in the sports medicine field… excellent for the treatment of tendons, muscles and joints.
So why does plasma work so well to heal? Plasma makes up 50% of our blood along with platelets, red blood cells and white blood cells. Plasma is superimportant because it is responsible for transporting gases such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide; nutrients such as glucose, amino acids; lipids; proteins; hormones; ions like calcium, sodium, and chloride; and various waste products. Aside from these very important jobs, plasma also works with
platelets to form scabs. The process of a PRP facial rejuvenation is simple; your qualified practitioner will evaluate and assess the skin aging and then your arm will be numbed and cleansed where the blood will be taken from. The blood then goes through a configuration process after which the blood will be injected back into the face.
