Your skin is an incredibly complex organ that uses many different proteins to protect itself from damage. Unfortunately, there will come a point when your body can no longer maintain an ample supply of those vital amino acids. When that takes place, you might begin to notice blemishes such as fine lines near the mouth, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles on your forehead. A Vampire Facial treatment at our office in Atlanta can refresh your skin with some of the amazing proteins found in your own blood. It takes advantage of PRP therapy in order to bring about amazing benefits.
The Basics of PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma therapy has been used for decades to treat a long list of issues including arthritis, surgical scars, general inflammation, and torn ligaments. PRP is a serum that is made from a patient’s own blood, and that means unwanted side effects are extremely rare. After the serum has been created, it can be used to treat acute injuries or minimize the appearance of blemishes.
The process of creating PRP is fairly straightforward, and we always make the serum just before it is administered. We will simply take a small sample of blood. We will then place that blood in a device known as a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood at a very high rate so that the plasma separates from all of the other molecules. After we have a concentrated dose of plasma, we can use it in the treatment area.
What are the Benefits?
The Vampire Facial can be extremely effective, and you might see changes to your skin within just weeks of the treatment. Unlike many other injectables, you won’t have to worry about any adverse reactions to foreign substances. During your treatment at our office in Atlanta, your very own platelets are going to do all of the hard work. The PRP “tricks” your body into healing the damaged skin cells with collagen, elastin, and other natural amino acids. A wide variety of blemishes can be treated with PRP including fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and acne scars.
