PRP Facial, also known as Vampire Facial, is a skin care treatment that involves taking a sample of one’s blood, extracting the plasma, and then injecting the plasma with fine needles into your face. PRP Facial is one of the latest skincare treatment trends that have taken the beauty world by storm. This treatment works on the principle that the body’s natural healing powers might slow, as well as reverse the aging process. Go for this treatment for treating acne, scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. It can even help you to repair and rejuvenate the damaged skin.
During the first phase of the procedure, your plastic surgeon would draw blood from your body. The blood is placed in a centrifuge. It helps to separate the platelet-rich-plasma from the blood. The platelet containing growth factors helps to promote tissue repair and growth. It promotes the healing process. These growth factor needs to be injected into the skin that needs the treatment. The stem cells respond to the growth factor and heal the area.
PRP Facials have a great ability to brighten the face and make it look more plump, healthy, and hydrated. During PRP Facial treatment, fine needles are used for puncturing the skin. The platelet-rich-plasma encourages the skin cells to create more collagen. The platelet-rich-plasma is injected underneath the affected areas after the application of local anesthesia. It plumps the skin and fills the fine lines.
