From the time we are born, we are aging. While it is inevitable, having apparent signs of it doesn’t have to be. With the latest techniques and the finest aestheticians, Elite Styles Salon & Med Spa in Miami, FL, can help you say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles without expensive, invasive surgery. Let us introduce you to the revolutionary PRP facial, also known as a vampire facial.
What Is a PRP Facial?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy uses your own blood platelets to rejuvenate the skin of the face and neck, which is why it’s coined the vampire facial throughout beauty magazines and websites. To begin, we take a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. We then put it into a centrifuge that spins the sample at high speed to concentrate the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells into the PRP serum. Microneedling creates tiny openings in the skin, and then the PRP is applied for 15-20 minutes to stimulate healing and collagen production.
How Long Does the PRP Facial Last?
The entire PRP facial takes only 30 minutes to complete. While some may find that the micro-needling procedure produces only a mild stinging sensation, others may find it more uncomfortable. If you would like to opt for numbing cream, it will take approximately 30 minutes to take effect before beginning the procedure. The full realization of benefits come after a series of treatments over a few weeks.
The effects of the facial can vary from person to person. Improvement can continue as the collagen rebuilds for two to three months. Typically, the results last anywhere from one to two years.
Does a PRP Facial Really Work?
Before becoming an effective facial rejuvenation technique, PRP was used widely in orthopedics for the rehabilitation of sports injuries. Studies on the efficacy of PRP for skin therapy have shown that there is a measurable improvement of texture and tone after treatment.
A PRP facial can provide benefits that include:
- The stimulation of collagen growth.
- Improvement of skin thickness and elasticity.
- Correction of the skin’s tone, reducing yellowish appearance and hyperpigmentation.
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
