Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein created by taking the patient’s own blood and putting it in a centrifuge to remove red blood cells. These cells contain a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood, meaning that they encourage a healing response within the injected area. This has been coined the “Vampire Facial” by the media because of its use of blood products.
How Market Mall Dermatology can help?
For facial cosmetic use, Dr. Adams uses what is known as the “Vampire Facelift” or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This cutting-edge rejuvenation treatment is a fast 20-to 30-minute process. A small amountof blood is drawn from the patient and placed in a sterile tube. The separated platelets are then activated to discharge more growth factors. After local anesthesia has been given, the PRP is injected into the proper place with very small needles just like those used in Botox injections. The stem cells and the growth factors stimulate skin regeneration, increase collagen formation, tighten skin and provide overall rejuvenation.
