/ WHAT IS PRP FACIAL REJUVENATION?
HOW IT WORKS
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Facial Rejuvenation, also known as the “Vampire Facelift®” or “Dracula Therapy” works on the basis that the body’s own cells slow and reverse the aging process – it is a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.
THE HEALING POWER OF PLATELETS
Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection, the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume, and rejuvenating the skin.
/ THE PRP INJECTION PROCESS
The injection process is facilitated by a small needle; when dermis is mechanically penetrated it creates a focal inflammatory zone, which leads to migration of fibroblasts to the area of injury, and the repair process induces new collagen deposition, hence tightening at the site of injection. Because multiple injections are usually performed, this acts as an additional stimulator for collagen production; facial tightening; and subsequent facial lifting.
/ Benefits of PRP FACIAL REJUVENATION
Patients love this treatment for its ability to treat different skin issues and the dramatic results that come after just one facial. This treatment is so popular because of its many benefits which can:
Reduce and refine your pores, making them
smaller and tighter
Create new collagen
Smooth out the surface and texture of your
Reduce the appearance of blemishes and
Decrease your fine lines and wrinkles
Improve and enhance the tone of your skin
and even out your skin color
Restore facial volume
Alleviate acne and general scarring
/ THE PRP FACIAL REJUVENATION PROCESS AT COMPLEXION MED SPA
PRP Facial Rejuvenation combines the application of platelet-rich plasma with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Your treatment begins with the collection of PRP. A sample of blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a sterilized container. The sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. In this process, the platelet count is concentrated to four times the normal level. These activated growth factors derived from PRP are applied topically or by injection to the targeted area of concern for regeneration. To begin the treatment, dermal fillers are injected into different areas of your face that need more volume.
The therapy plumps up and tightens the skin through deposition of new collagen, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, and restores a youthful appearance. As we age, we lose volume loss, but thanks to dermal fillers, there is a way to temporarily restore that volume and in doing so, restore youth. The dermal fillers used during this treatment can correct wrinkles, facial folds, and hollow areas. They can restore volume to many areas, including:
Areas around the mouth
Moderate to severe nasolabial folds
Once administered, these injectables will give you immediately noticeable results. They will enhance the shape of your face and provide you with a natural, subtle look. Your face will appear smoother and more youthful and you’ll still look like you, just a better version of you.
There are no unwanted allergic reactions or complications associated with this procedure as it is derived from the patient’s own blood.

WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
HOW IS THE PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP) COLLECTED?
Step 1: Utilizing a specialized blood collection tube, our nurse or physician will draw a small amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test.
Step 2: The tube is then placed into a centrifuge which spins the blood at a very high speed, causing the platelets to separate from other components of the blood.
Step 3: Once the platelets are concentrated into the plasma, they can be applied to the treatment area. Activation causes platelets to release essential growth factors and signaling proteins, which are responsible for the healing process.
