A PRP facial treatment, also known as the vampire facial, is a great way to revitalize your skin and aid in the appearance of looking younger than you are. This innovative treatment uses the healing properties of the patient’s own blood to produce these rejuvenating effects on the skin. Orlando residents interested in receiving PRP facials from skilled professionals, in a safe and clean environment, should consider us here at LightTouch Med Spa. Our quality facility is locally situated, and we are eager to help you attain the results you desire. To learn more about the PRP process and how it can help you, please read on.
The Centrifugal Process
This PRP treatment will first begin with one of our highly trained medical practitioners drawing a vile of the patient’s blood. This blood is collected and placed in a machine called a centrifuge. This machine rapidly spins the blood vial around, eliciting a centrifugal force that separates the blood based on density. At the end of this process, the blood will have been divided into red blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma. It is this platelet-rich plasma that is needed for the facial.
Platelets are blood cells that contain essential proteins that promote blood clotting and wound healing. By concentrating a large amount of these platelets into a small volume of plasma, 5 to 10 times more than normal blood contains, and injecting the substance into the face, this method of treatment can promote healing at the site of application and regenerate new cell growth. It will also improve the production of collagen to boost elasticity of the skin for an all-around more youthful appearance. For this reason, a PRP facial has many beneficial effects for those who undergo this innovative treatment.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Facials Can:
- Treat dull and rough textured skin
- Reduce the appearance of scars
- Treat hyperpigmentation and even out skin tones
- Treat dark circles under the eye, including puffiness and hollowness
- Fade fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulate new hair growth
Treatment and Results
As the facial treatment uses needles to administer PRP to the skin, our Orlando facility offers patients the use of numbing agents to make the process a more comfortable one. As platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood, no foreign bodies are being introduced into the system, so it is a safe and natural way to promote healing and healthy cell growth. Treatments do not take long, and there is minimal downtime needed afterwards. We recommend a treatment length of 3 facial sessions for patients to see optimal results.
