PRP Facial (aka Vampire Facial)

Platelet Rich Plasma Facial (PRP) – aka Vampire Facial

plastic surgery 9PRP facial, popularly known as a Vampire Facial, is a unique med spa procedure to provide a comprehensive facial treatment to restore a more youthful looking face. PRP facials are now increasingly used for cosmetic purposes to address loss of facial volume and smooth the rough paper-like skin underneath the eyes and neck.

Wrinkles and acne scarring can be effectively reduced with PRP facial. The platelet rich plasma involves injecting the patient’s own fibrin and platelets to treat facial wrinkles and scars. Sky Balance medical spa provides PRP facial treatment to patients in Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and surrounding communities.

How does it Work?

PRP facial treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that involves directly injecting PRP into targeted areas of the face. The injectable procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes, and improvements may last for as many as 18 months. The med spa procedure begins with the preparation of platelet rich fibrin matrix using the patient’s own blood.

This is a regenerative formula for the facial skin, which involves the use of platelets to revitalize the skin. The infusion of platelets helps to repair damaged blood vessels and cells in the facial area. This enables the patient to achieve an enhanced facial tone. Platelets contain growth factors, which activate facial cells, stimulate collagen formation, and address facial skin imperfections and volume loss.

Appropriate Candidates

Women and men who want to add volume to the face, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve skin texture without surgery can be good candidates for PRP facial. Many people look for a natural treatment approach with no risk of allergies or adverse impact. PRP facial can be well-suited to the needs of such patients. Sky Balance medical spa receives patients from Schaumburg, Chicago, IL, and nearby areas for PRP facial treatment.

Results

The results with PRP facial treatment are subtle and will be established gradually in the injected area. Noticeable improvements will appear in about three to five weeks. Full correction can take about four to seven weeks, and will last for as long as 18 months. PRP facial injections are produced from the patient’s own blood, which eliminates the risk of infection, reaction, and rejection.

To achieve more sustainable and deeper results, PRP facial treatment sessions can be repeated two or three times. Each treatment session will be spaced one to two months apart. As the treatment sessions progress, the results of PRP facial will continue to improve.

Combining with Fillers

The fundamental difference between facial fillers and PRP facial injections is that the traditional filler will disintegrate over time, whereas PRP will continue to build tissue over time. Therefore, it produces more sustainable results. PRP procedure can be combined with dermal fillers for more effective outcomes in some cases.

It may also be combined with facelift surgery, laser skin resurfacing and Botox injectable treatment. In cases where the volume loss is significantly with numerous fine lines and changes of skin texture, fillers can be layered with PRP to create a new foundation of collagen and achieve deeper results.
