What Exactly Is A PRP Facial?

A PRP facial is actually a skin-care treatment often referred to as a “vampire facial,” or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial. Basically, your own blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge where it is spun rapidly and continuously for about 15 minutes until the Platelet Rich Plasma is separated from the red blood cells.

The PRP is then injected back into your face to help rejuvenate your complexion. The end results are actually quite impressive, virtually painless and the results will have your skin glowing.

More About Platelet Rich Plasma Facials

When your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge, it separates into three distinct layers: plasma on top, platelets and blood cells in the middle, and red blood cells at the bottom. PRP aka Platelet RICH Plasma, is derived from the center part.

The platelets, contain pockets called alpha granules, which secrete more than 20 high levels of growth factors. When platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced to skin on its own through a non-invasive procedure, cell turnover is stimulated, and in turn, collagen and elastin production is ramped up for a plumper, tighter, and smoother complexion.

The PRP Facial Process

First, your blood will drawn. Then, the vials of your blood are placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets from your red blood cells. While the blood is being spun, we prep your skin with a numbing agent in order to make the micro-needling process a little more bearable.

For those unaware of the process of micro-needling; Micro-needling, is a procedure in which a bunch of very small little needles are used with a micro-needling pen, in order to penetrate the skin and pull underneath the surface of the skin to cause trauma so the skin can heal and be tighter and more glowing.

Finally, our board certified physician and licensed aesthetician(s) will inject the plasma back into your skin using a microneedle. The plasma stimulates healing, thus promoting the growth of healthier skin cells.

In Conclusion

Vampire facials (or PRP micro-needling, if we’re being specific) can help boost collagen production, brighten your overall skin tone, get rid of minor acne scars, fade hyperpigmentation, and tighten your skin.

10/10 recommend! I’ve thought about getting injectables for over a year now and finally decided to go with Wellness at the Spa and it was an amazing experience. I was given all the information about what was going to happen and given the price before anything else. I love that because if you don’t want to proceed you are given that option. I will be going back for all my needs!
