What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy (Oftentimes referred to as the Vampire Facial)
Many of our NYC patient seek a natural method to facial rejuvenation. PRP therapy achieves skin rejuvenation with your body’s own unique cells and more specifically, autologous platelet-rich plasma.
Blood contains plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. The platelet rich plasma is extracted from patients’ blood and re-injected on desired areas. The platelets gradually increase collagen which thickens and rejuvenates the skin. Blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a medical centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. Using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the desired areas. Once injected, the platelets immediately activate the body’s localized stem cells and begin rejuvenating and revitalizing the scalp to produce growth. The procedure is very tolerable with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime.
PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the regenerating cells from your own body directly back into the area where they are needed.
How Is Micro-Needling Different From Lasers?
Unlike lasers, Eclipse MicroPen® skin rejuvenation treatments with PRP breaks up pigment mechanically and stimulates the collagen formation without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate.
No heat also equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen® patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
A numbing agent can be applied to the desired treatment area to maximize patient comfort. One treatment per month for up to three months is typically required for optimal results, and long-lasting results can be maintained with follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
What Do I Need To Do Before a Platelet Rich Plasma procedure?
- Be well hydrated 48 hours leading up to the procedure
- Reduce your fat intake
- Reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake
- If you are a smoker, reduce cigarettes
- Stop taking omegas, green teas and all supplements that increase bruising
How Long is the Recovery Process?
Redness, swelling, slight pain, bruising or all these signs can possibly happen in the treatment area(s). These side effects usually subside in a few hours to a few days. Patients can go back to daily activities straight after the treatment.
