Vampire Facial: Facial Skin Rejuvenation
The human body has an amazing ability to heal, thanks in large part to tiny cells in our blood called platelets. Packed with growth factors, platelets are first responders for tissue repair, triggering cell regeneration and speeding collagen production to give our tissues new life.
Now, we can harness the power of platelets to help give new life to aging skin with a Vampire Facial. We are excited to offer this non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment here at Trillium Medical Aesthetics and Gynecology.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. Our blood has many different components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. All are necessary for helping our bodies function, but platelets and plasma are especially good for tissue regeneration. PRP contains proteins and growth factors that help cells renew and repair themselves.
A centrifuge is used to separate out the red and white blood cells from a small blood sample, leaving behind plasma with a very high concentration of platelets. This platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then infused into the skin to help stimulate collagen production and repair age-related skin damage.
When injected into the skin and combined with a micro-needling treatment, PRP can add lost volume to age damaged skin giving you a smoother, healthier and more youthful looking skin in just a few short weeks. By aiding in skin regeneration, PRP can help to:
- Reduce fine lines & wrinkles
- Improve skin texture & tone
- Reduce acne scars
- Rejuvenate aging hands
- Boost effects of microneedling, dermal fillers & other skin care treatments for faster onset of results
