PRP Therapy – Vampire Facial – Redlands/Upland, CA

43 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Known popularly as the vampire facial, PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy takes a patient’s own blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate out its components. From there, the platelet rich plasma component is treated with a small amount of calcium to increase the healing process. The PRP is injected into the problem areas of the face to cause inflammation, which stimulates the skin’s healing process. The platelets release enzymes to initiate healing to cause new collagen to develop. The collagen will tighten and strengthen the treatment area for improved skin. Inland Empire board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Childers and the specialists at Sheer Beauty obtain outstanding results with this treatment for patients with lines and wrinkles, uneven or rough texture, lost volume, and/or scars. Usually, 2 – 3 treatments are needed and results can last up to two years.

How it Works

Originally used in orthopedic medicine, reconstructive surgery, and dentistry, the principles of PRP therapy have been applied in dermatology for skin rejuvenation. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and then spun in a special centrifuge until the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors are concentrated, which turns it into platelet rich plasma (PRP). The prepared PRP is then applied to the face for 15–20 minutes as it stimulates the growth of new collagen and tissue.

Expected Results

PRP stimulates collagen growth for facial rejuvenation that helps to improve wrinkles, puffiness under the eyes, as well as enhancing the overall skin tone, texture, and elasticity. For the first 1-3 days after the procedure, patients may have some mild swelling, redness, and bruising. Patients will begin to see improvements to their skin in about 3-4 weeks after their treatment, which usually last about 6-18 months. For better results, patients can have multiple treatments, scheduled every 1-2 months.

Natural Fountain of Youth!

PRP Therapy, with or without microneedling, is a great way to use your own platelets to rejuvenate your appearance. PRP Therapy helps patients with dark circle and puffiness under the eyes, fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, and eyes, and makes the skin healthier, brighter, and firmer. Consider combining PRP Therapy with another professional facial service, like a chemical peel or injectable wrinkle filler, for faster, more dramatic results.
