How Does PRP Work?

Belle Vie PRP TherapyIf we told you that blood was the secret to younger-looking skin, would you be surprised?

Don’t be – because PRP therapy (or platelet-rich plasma) is the hottest cosmetic treatment to hit medical spas and plastic surgery practices since 2013, when Kim Kardashian filmed her Vampire Facelift procedure for her reality TV show. This unique therapy uses the power of the platelets in your own blood to reinvigorate collagen and elastin production; the two building blocks for younger, healthier-looking skin!

This unique treatment may sound intimidating, but it’s actually nothing to be afraid of. In order to collect a concentrated sample of platelets, a small vial of blood will be removed and inserted into a centrifuge. This device spins the blood to separate the platelets, which can be used in combination with other cosmetic treatments for unique, youth-enhancing benefits.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can be applied topically during a microneedling session to allow for maximum impact while preserving comfort (this is known as the Vampire Facial). PRP can also be injected directly after a dermal filler to improve youthful contouring while encouraging cellular turnover (this is known as the Vampire Facelift)

PRP therapy is completely changing the skin rejuvenation game. It not only delivers concentrated youth-enhancing platelets directly to the skin, it also promotes rapid healing.

It’s truly a treatment you have to experience to believe!

PRP therapy is an ideal treatment for clients who need a more aggressive treatment than skin creams and serums, but are not ready for a surgical solution. PRP therapy can help reduce the appearance of some of the biggest aging concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scarring
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • And more!

PRP therapy can be used on any part of the body that may suffer from the common symptoms of aging. The most popular treatment areas include the face, neck, décolletage, and chest. Some patients have even opted for PRP therapy treatments on their hands!
