Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is extracted from your blood using a centrifuge-like mechanism that can separate the substance from your blood and increase the concentration of specific proteins that promote healing.
What to Know About Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair
PRP Hair Rejuvenation is a more natural approach to restoring thinning hair or generating collagen as your own body does the work for you. There are numerous other benefits to this hair loss treatment:
- Non-surgical procedure
- No downtime
- Safe and reliable results
- Very quick recovery period
- No strong chemicals
- Beautiful and natural looking end results
HAIR REJUVENATION PROCESS
Your own PRP is collected, then injected into multiple areas of hair loss across your scalp. The usual treatment plan involves three sessions, approximately one month apart, followed by maintenance sessions every three to six months to keep up the results.
PRP scalp injections stimulate new hair growth and decrease shedding. They are normally performed monthly for four months and then twice a year after.
VAMPIRE FACELIFT® PROCESS (PRP MICRONEEDLING)
We also love PRP Microneedling. After the collagen stimulation of microneedling your own growth factors are applied to your skin, leading to healthier, beautiful skin.
A hyaluronic acid-based filler (like Restylane® or Juvéderm®) is injected precisely in target areas to help sculpt a younger appearing, yet natural-looking face. While injecting filler, our expert team considers the mathematics of beauty as defined by much research to avoid creating an unnatural shape.
After using injectable fillers to achieve a more youthful appearance, we will perform a standard blood draw (approximately 2 teaspoons). Your blood will be run through a centrifuge to separate and isolate Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), that is also known as growth factors which have been identified to help heal damaged tissue.
Once we have isolated the PRP created from the previous step, our team will then strategically administer it to key areas using a small needle. These growth factors then activate multipotent cells already in the skin, enabling them to generate newer and younger tissue.
I’M NERVOUS. WHAT’S IT LIKE?
The process of obtaining PRP involves a blood draw and a centrifuge. To yield PRP, blood is drawn from your arm, then spun down in a centrifuge (a machine that spins at high speeds to help separate blood components). After centrifuging, the plasma rises to the top, and the lower part of the plasma is the PRP. Sometimes, a second spin is performed to increase the platelet concentration of the plasma.
Some differences will be immediately visible, but more improvements will develop over the next few months as these vigorous, healing cells do their work. The healing time for a Vampire Face Lift® is minimal. Some people go out in public the same day they receive the procedure.
