PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is not new, and has been used in cardiac and sports medicine since the 1980’s by elite athletes (such as Tiger Woods) for rapid wound healing. The facial aesthetic use of PRP by entertainers like Kim Kardashian have made the treatment ‘Vampire Facial’ a household word.
With PRP, we draw your blood, then fractionate it to a clear plasma liquid containing a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are extremely rich in multiple healing growth factors. This is then re-injected into the area needing corrective treatment.
PRP is a safe and effective procedure since the product introduced into your body is by autologous harvest, that is, it is all natural and derived from your own body.
At Dermalogics, we use PRP combined with medical micro-needling, and also via direct injections below the skin for deeper regeneration and more dramatic correction. A series of 3 is recommended for greatest cellular stimulation.
