You don’t need to follow celebrity gossip to know that Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous purveyors of innovative cosmetic treatments in the world.  In fact, just three years ago, Kim Kardashian underwent a brand-new treatment called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy.

Whether you’re an avid Kardashian fan or just interested in effective skincare, you probably have one question on your mind: What exactly is PRP Therapy, and why are these treatments more popular than ever?

PRP Therapy is a facial procedure that uses the power of your platelets to plump up your skin and rejuvenate your appearance.  During the treatment, your nurse or nurse practitioner collects a small vile of blood from your arm and places it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets.  Once these platelets are prepared, the platelet rich plasma is injected into the skin. This results in an amazing transformation, that is all natural. PRP Therapy Facials are typically performed – you guessed it – on the face, although it can also be performed on the décolletage, hands or anywhere on the body.

At Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics in Cerritos, CA, our Nurses & Nurse Practitioners can combine the power of PRP Therapy with dermal fillers and Botox via AquaGold microneedling treatments. The Platelet Rich Plasma is applied to the skin during microneedling to help stimulate collagen production, which plumps and smooths the skin. This is a great option for those looking for additional plump and smoothing properties that Botox and fillers can add.

Want to see the proof for yourself? Just check out the reality TV show “Botched” – board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif regularly uses PRP therapy to achieve better results in his surgeries and non-invasive procedures.
