What is PRP therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ and including several brands such as Regen and others works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers may slow and even reverse the ageing process; it’s a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself. The treatment involves harvesting platelets from the patient’s own blood in order to inject them into problem skin areas, starting with the extraction of a minimal amount of the patient’s blood. This is then placed in a centrifuge to spin down the blood which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. This treatment is also used for hair growth and healing cells that stimulate your 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. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy costs from $350 and up per session. We love incorporating live stem cells for even better results. Call for your appointment or come in and receive a Valmont facial first and we can discuss this treatment after seeing your face.
We personally love using live stem cells with this treatment for excellent results in making the skin new, radiant and also helps in healing acne scars etc. as well. A must have at least once a year for people that are serious about healing and youth enhancement!
