Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has long been known for its ability to help athletes get back in the game in record time — but the benefits of PRP extend far beyond sports medicine. PRP’s unique healing properties make it a great addition to your anti-aging arsenal, stimulating hair growth, and regenerating tissue.
PRP facial rejuvenation naturally stimulates your body’s own collagen production, and it takes about three months for maximum collagen regeneration to occur. Most patients notice an improvement in their skin texture in the first month after the treatment. It is recommended to have 2-3 treatments spaced at 6- 8 week intervals. The results of PRP rejuvenation are long term with most patients receiving touch up treatments at one year to further stimulate collagen production and continued facial rejuvenation. For more immediate improvement, we can combine the benefits of the PRP facial rejuvenation with Botox, fillers and skin pen microneedling. PRP Facial Rejuvenation is one of the lowest risk treatments because the process involves injecting a substance sourced from your own body. Mild injection site bruising, swelling or redness can occur but usually resolves after 3-7 days following the procedure and may be safely concealed with make-up shortly after the treatment. Other risks include infection and pain at injection sites. It is recommended that patients start taking Arnica, a homeopathic medication that naturally decreases bruising and swelling following procedures.
Microneedling for Acne Scars
Pimples. We have all had one, or if you are like most, multiple in our lives. The medical term for this condition is acne vulgaris, or acne for short. Acne is the result of inflammation of the skin due to the blockage of oil glands and hair follicles. During a breakout, inflammation is occurring not only where we can see it above the surface of our skin, but underneath our skin's surface as well. This inflammation causes trauma to the skin tissues which can form a scar. Our bodies naturally try to heal this inflammation and can end up producing too much or too little collagen which leads us to have visible scarring or irregularities of our skin. It is the right balance of collagen that makes our skin elastic, firm, and smooth. Our SkinPen microneedling device works to minimize and erase acne scarring by creating thousands of microchannels through our skin to create channels for our natural collagen to fill. The SkinPen device is programmed to deliver the same depth and trigger the same restoration of collagen along the entire surface of the treatment area. There is no downtime. 90% of patients noticed an improvement in just one treatment. For the most optimal results, we recommend 3 to 4 treatments spaced about 30 days apart.

The non-surgical facelift.
As we age, so does our skin. In a society where we’re constantly chasing youth and aesthetic perfection, the desire for smooth, firm facial skin has become increasingly requested. Fortunately, achieving the lift of sagging neck and facial skin is now easy. Our PRP facelift involves a combination of filler injections and PRP therapy to achieve a progressive and lasting anti-aging effect. By drawing a small amount of blood from your arm, extracting the platelet-rich plasma from the sample, and immersing your skin in the powerful regenerative properties of PRP through a procedure known as microneedling, the non-surgical Vampire facelift induces collagen production and tissue regeneration at the cellular level without the pain and downtime of surgical cosmetic procedures resulting in a firmer, more youthful complexion.
You don't have to lose your hair.
A common sign of aging is hair loss. By age 35, two thirds of men experience signs of male pattern baldness and by age 40, 40% of women are experiencing some form of thinning. While some individuals embrace the change, many become less confident and embarrassed by the change in appearance. PRP can provide a lasting solution to hair loss, helping to halt the progression of hair loss and restore, regrow, and thicken natural hair by stimulating growth. Used alone or in tandem with hair transplants, this state of the art, non-surgical procedure is a safe, natural solution to hair loss or hair thinning.
