Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has always been popular, especially in sports medicine. This substance found in your blood has restorative properties that can treat a number of cosmetic issues you may be having. Using your own body to achieve cosmetic benefits is incredible!
PRP Therapy 101
PRP Therapy is a rejuvenation technique that stimulates collagen production to encourage the growth of healthy new skin cells. PRP Therapy uses your body’s own blood, the risk of reaction to foreign substances and side effects is eliminated. This reason alone is why many people choose PRP therapy.
The benefits of this kind of treatment include:
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Lifting and tightening the skin
- Accelerating the body’s natural healing process
- Stimulating the growth of new cells
What’s It Like?
First, our doctors and expertly skilled staff have to draw a small amount of blood to get the PRP. They take the blood and put it in a centrifuge, which separates the blood platelets from the rest of the blood. This creates the PRP. Afterward, the PRP is then injected back into the body in various areas where you want to be treated, similar to the process of getting dermal fillers or injectables.
Types of Treatments
There are two different types of treatments you can get with your PRP – a PRP Facial or a Vampire Facelift.
This type of facial takes your PRP and injects it back into the skin to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Injecting the PRP back into the skin helps promote the production of collagen, which prevents signs of aging in the future.
The name sounds scarier than the treatment actually is, we promise. The Vampire Facelift® uses the PRP the same way as the PRP injections, but it also uses dermal fillers and injectables to give you ultimate results. The Vampire Facelift® is a trademarked procedure that requires special training to become certified. Our specialist has completed all of the training requirements, therefore is certified to perform the treatment. She has done extensive research on the different PRP systems on the market to ensure she delivers the best outcome for your Vampire Facelift®.
Is it Expensive?
Your PRP treatment is highly customized to your body and your desired outcome. Because of this, there is no range of prices we can give you. The price of your treatment depends on the extent of your treatment to receive your desired results. Our specialist will go over this with you more when you have your consultation. If you are worried about paying for your treatment, consider one of the financing options offered at the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas. This lets you break up your payment into smaller, monthly payments that can better suit your lifestyle and budget.
