Platelet Rich Plasma
Althea’s customized Vampire Facial
A combination of laser, microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from the whole blood after it has been processed by spinning in a centrifuge to remove the red cells. The PRP has a greater concentration of growth factors than the whole blood. Growth factors are beneficial for the repair of all sorts of skin issues.
The PRP infusions can help stimulate collagen growth. Combined with laser and microneedling, the treatment can result in scar reduction, correction of sun damage, and improvement of fine lines and pores. Because the PRP is from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of side effects! However, patients who have blood disorders or use blood thinners should avoid this type of procedure.
