Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a blood product that is rich in growth factors that naturally stimulate healing and regeneration. In PRP treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from your own body. This test tube of blood is spun in a special machine called a centrifuge. The PRP is then extracted from this test tube and applied topically on the face during a micro needling treatment. The PRP acts as a lubricant for the micro needling and also is absorbed deep into the skin through the tiny channels created by the micro needling. This deep absorption of the PRP further enhances the collagen growth and anti-aging effects of the micro needling. These two treatments, micro needling and PRP, have been coined the “vampire facial.” PRP can also be put into a syringe and injected deeper. Results from new collagen growth can observed in 4-6 weeks following treatment.
