Platelet Rich Plasma: Skin Rejuvenation
The patient’s own blood is drawn, centrifuged and separated, and then the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the patient’s face. Injections are made into strategic areas to encourage skin healing and renewal through new collagen production and fresh skin cells full of human growth factors.
At Mediworks we do the Vampire Facial treatment using the U225 Mesotherapy injector. Specifically, the Vampire Facial is used to treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles; The natural aging of your skin is due to an imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen
- Circles, bags and discolouration around eyes
- Vertical lip lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Active acne and acne scars
- Stretch scars
- Back of hands
- Epidermal thinning and volume loss in the face, neck, and décolleté
This procedure is not recommended for those with blood-related conditions, anemia, or blood or bone cancers. Patients who take blood thinning medication or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) should discontinue their medication for a few weeks prior to their treatment and for a few days afterwards according to physician instructions.
Recovery after PRP therapy
The Vampire Facial requires little recovery time. There may be redness and some tenderness on the first day that appears much like sunburn. Occasionally some bruising may occur. The initial redness will subside on the second day. By the third day, the swelling should diminish. The sandpaper texture to the skin may persist for up to a week.
Though you may notice these changes, you will not likely have any significant downtime as a result of these symptoms. You can go back to your regular daily activities after your appointment and, with a light make-up application, no one will be the wiser about your procedure.
Results of PRP Therapy: What can I expect?
Within a few days patients begin to see noticeable results. Within 2 to 3 months, when the greatest benefit is seen, individuals report fully refreshed skin that looks and feels more youthful. These results can last between 1 to 2 years afterwards depending on the individual. We recommend a series of 3 treatments 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
