Vampires, though creatures of horror, have long held our fascination. Now, science has developed a beauty enhancement procedure in their name. The so-called “vampire facelift,” or PRP facial, is a new trend in plastic surgery, and it uses a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the face. As a specialist in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Jason B. Diamond personally performs all PRP facials at his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice.
What Is PRP?
PRP is short for “platelet-rich plasma” and is the substance used in PRP facials. To produce PRP, blood is drawn from a vein in your arm and then processed to separate out the platelet-rich plasma. Both platelets and plasma help the body in several ways. Plasma steadies blood pressure, fights disease, and maintains pH balance for healthy cellular function. Platelets help your blood to clot and stimulate healing and cellular growth. Platelet-rich plasma can trigger new blood vessel growth, increase collagen formation, and improve skin health, and it is even used to heal sports injuries, prevent surgery, and reverse hair loss. Injecting PRP directly into the face concentrates the combined efforts of the platelets and plasma to rejuvenate the facial tissues.
The PRP Facial
The PRP facial begins with drawing blood from the arm to produce PRP. After the PRP is prepared, Dr. Diamond injects it into the face to brighten the complexion and rejuvenate the appearance. The face will look immediately brighter and refreshed, and because of the platelets within the PRP, the skin continues to improve for up to three months after the procedure. A PRP facial can improve facial wrinkles, fill facial hollows, improve skin tone, soften skin texture, and treat delicate areas of the face where the skin is thin. Results can last up to two years and are the most beneficial with a series of treatments.
The Benefits of PRP Injections
Injectable treatments like the PRP facial can be an ideal solution for patients who desire temporary correction through a non-invasive treatment. With PRP injections, there is no downtime, scarring, or surgical risk. Patients can avoid the possibility of major complications and have natural-looking beauty enhancement. PRP helps the body to heal itself and combats the graying skin tone caused by age-related decreased blood flow. This trending “vampire facelift” can give you a natural flush and a more youthful appearance with lasting results.
