Youthful skin is found within!
The PRP facial (short for Platelet Rich Plasma) may have been made famous by reality TV star Kim Kardashian, but this treatment’s results exceed more than a mere celebrity endorsement. PRP facials are a fast, non-surgical treatment that combines the science of hyaluronic acid fillers (i.e. Restylane and Juvederm), unipotent stem cells and beauty to provide a custom advanced procedure. The goal is to smooth out fine lines, deep creases, wrinkles, provide facial volume correction, improve the texture of the skin and renew the complexion. The latest in skin rejuvenation, youthful skin is just a day away at our Long Island, NY spa.
WHAT IS A PRP FACIAL?
A specialist draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test and places the blood into a centrifuge. Your face is then rolled with a derma roller that is studded with tiny fine “microneedles” which gently prick the skin which stimulates the creation of new skin cells and regeneration of damaged cells. Your own PRP is then massaged into the skin.
HOW IT WORKS
PRP facials work by using the combination of Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) and/or dermal fillers. The utilization of platelets and other growth factors found in your blood, trigger new collagen production and optimize restoration. PRP is basically a natural product produced from your own body, which contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent.
Because PRP facials are non-invasive, they are both a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin. This treatment softens fine lines and wrinkles, revealing a refreshed, youthful skin texture, color and tone. Your skin will glow and immediately feel smoother and softer, with progressive improvements continuing for several months. The treatment can also be completed in just one hour.
You will notice results within a few days after the procedure is performed. The skin color becomes a “younger” color because of new blood vessel formation. Within 2 to 3 months, you will see the greatest advantages and optimal, youthful results. Results may last anywhere between 1 to 2 years. Welcome refreshed, natural-looking skin!
The PRP Process
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Stem cell science is used to tell the body to grow new younger skin. There are Unipotent stem cells which grow only one specific tissue and can be found in every part of the body. Unipotent stem cells in the skin grow new skin. The PRP facial takes the cosmetic rejuvenation process to a higher level.
Ideal Candidates for the PRP Facial?
PRP therapy is autologous, which means it comes from one’s own body. Therefore, in theory, we should all be good candidates for this treatment if we want to improve the quality and appearance of our skin. Specifically, the Vampire Facial can be used to treat:
- Crow’s feet
- Dark circles around the eyes
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Dull, rough, or grey skin tone and texture
- Sun-damaged skin
- Acne scarring
- Droopy skin in the eye, neck and décolletage areas
What to Expect Post-Treatment
There may be slight tenderness or redness for the first day after treatment; similar to that of a sunburn. By the third day, any swelling should diminish. Nothing a light make-up application can’t cover. Depending on the target areas or severity of the treatment, the procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. However, there is no significant downtime and you may resume your everyday activities right after your session.
