Platelet Rich Plasma, known as “PRP” is an injection treatment whereby a person’s own blood is used. Blood contains red cells, white cells, platelets and plasma. Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting process. PRP is obtained by separating the plasma and platelets.
When these separated platelets are activated and re-injected into the area to be treated, they release a number of enzymes or growth factors which promote healing. This process also attracts stem cells in order to repair tissue. In PRP injection, the patient’s own blood is processed at high speeds, resulting in higher concentrations of the patient’s own growth and healing factors, which are then injected into the injured area promoting a more potent healing response.
Though it has a name that sounds like something out of a horror movie, the Vampire Facelift is actually a very safe and effective, non-surgical facelift treatment. The Vampire Facelift, or PRP, involves extracting a couple of dessert spoons of a patient’s blood from their arm and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma – the fluid part – from the red and white blood cells. The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets – the part of the blood rich with growth factors – is then injected into the face.
