Your blood. Your benefit.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is also known as the ‘vampire facial’ and uses your body’s own PRP to rejuvenate your appearance. Our blood is made up of red cells, white cells, and platelets. The platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important for healing the body.
PRP treatment in our Denver clinic starts with a nurse drawing your blood which is then placed into a centrifuge in order to separates out the platelets. Platelet rich plasma is left behind and this is used during your facial process.
PRP works naturally to boost collagen to rejuvenate the skin on your face and:
- Reduce the look of wrinkles
- Plump up sagging skin
- Remove creases
- Reduce acne scars
- Improve overall complexion
The magic happens when the PRP is applied during one of the following treatments:
- Microneedling (SkinPen or Vivace)
Applied topically, the skin is more receptive to the platelet-rich plasma due to the tiny micro channels in the skin that have been opened from the micro needling treatment
- Halo Laser
Applied topically, the PRP is spread over the skin post-HALO, to heal and smooth the skin and increase collagen production
- Injectable treatment
PRP is injected by syringe directly into the skin to boost collagen production
During any of the above treatments, you will be using your own growth-factor-packed platelets to refresh and restore your skin. A 100% natural serum.
