PRP Facial is endorsed by many celebrities and skin care experts. PRP treatment (Sometimes known as Dracula, Vampire facial, or Plasma therapy) is an exciting natural treatment with its origins in wound healing and medicine.

"What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy?"
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes your own body’s healing abilities to stimulate skin and follicle recovery. It is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your own blood. These activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors which enhance the natural healing process of the skin and hair follicles.

During a PRP Therapy treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from you into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The tube containing your blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components. 

After a few minutes, the PRP layer is removed from the same tube and re-introduced into the body at the site to be treated. Using a small sterile needle, your practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the desired site.

The production of collagen is induced by the PRP will brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the first treatment. A course of 3-4 treatments is recommended to see the full effects of this pioneering technique.
