PRP – Vampire Facial
NEW this fall at Park Avenue Medical Spa. This treatment combines the benefits of microneedling and PRP. Microneedling is a procedure using tiny needles which rotate at high speed and create microscopic skin injuries. This will stimulate the body’s healing mechanism by producing firmer, tighter smother skin. The addition of the Platelet Rich Plasma obtained from your own blood will enhance the process and promote the growth of healthier new tissue. Do not let the term “facial” mislead you and ask about applying this treatment to your neck, chest or hands. It will have the same rejuvenating effects.
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a very active cellular concentrate obtained from your blood. Our processing system will produce a serum with over 1.1 million active growth factors and over 9 million bioactive regenerative cells. This is over 7 times the level found in one’s blood and it is the concentration that provides the desired clinical outcome. These cells present in this potent preparation is specific to your own tissue type and can quickly identify and regenerate your collagen, elastin and any other potent cells need to enhance the rejuvenation process.
Is this treatment safe?
This treatment provides a very powerful mixture of bioactive cells 100% safe and compatible with your own tissues. There is absolutely zero chance of hypersensitivity or allergic reaction. The concentrated serum with your own blood elements will stimulate a natural regeneration of the cells needed to rejuvenate your skin.
