The blood in your veins could be the solution to helping you achieve a more youthful appearance. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP treatments, are used for a wide variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. PRP is derived from your own blood. A small sample is taken and sent through filtering in a centrifuge to create the platelet-dense plasma. This miraculous substance can help your cells heal, including the skin cells on your face.
At City Facial Plastics, we are always researching the latest cosmetic technology to give our patients the most advanced options for improving their appearance. We utilize PRP injections to help improve the health of skin cells. PRP contains concentrated growth factors that help cells rejuvenate. PRP has been used for years in surgical and medical treatment applications due to its effectiveness at healing and cell rejuvenation. The same effect can be realized for cosmetic purposes, including anti-aging benefits for the skin and scalp.
You may have heard of a vampire facelift, as it has been a popular procedure for some celebrities. This is a catchy name for a PRP facial treatment. We utilize PRP derived from our patients’ blood to give them a PRP facial. Injections of PRP are used on the face, usually combined with microneedling that stimulates the growth factors in the PRP and helps improve collagen in the skin. This can help improve the elasticity and tone of the skin. Many patients notice firmer and more youthful skin with diminished wrinkles and other skins of aging.
PRP treatments can be beneficial for those wanting to improve the appearance of their skin. They are also used to help thicken hair for those with hair loss. If you are interested in learning more about PRP treatments, contact City Facial Plastics in Manhattan to schedule a consultation.
