Cosmetic procedures have numerous benefits: covering visible scars, improving skin’s appearance; enhancing different features ; boosting one’s self-esteem. But in many cases, receiving cosmetic treatments means undergoing surgery or invasive procedures that carry risks or involve lengthy recovery time. Luckily, there are plenty of non-invasive options for those seeking to enhance their natural beauty without with little or no downtime.
At the Vein & Laser Institute, several cosmetic procedures are offered through a versatile and state-of-the-art therapy called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP.) PRP is a concentration of platelets, growth factors, and cellular signaling factors, all of which are naturally found in our blood. These components are vital in the healing process when an injury occurs and are used in other forms of therapy to help promote more rapid healing of damaged tissue, tendons, and more. But recent technology has cultivated PRP for cosmetic procedures to help promote a natural, no-risk solution to aging, skin issues, scars, and so much more.
Two procedures—the Vampire Facial and the Vampire Facelift—have recently been introduced at Vein and Laser Institute for both their effectiveness and non-invasive nature. While these procedures sound similar, they have two very distinct purposes that cater to a patient’s specific needs.
The Vampire Facial is a skin resurfacing treatment using micro-needling to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which “trick” your body into thinking there is an injury, so new collagen is produced. When the PRP is applied over the micro-needled areas, it penetrates deeper into the underlying skin.
The micro-needling with PRP is best for patients who have baseline good skin that isn’t severely damaged, and are looking for overall skin rejuvenation and improvement in skin texture.
The Vampire Facelift is a non-invasive procedure addressing beauty concerns at the next level. A hyaluronic acid filler and the PRP concentration are injected into targeted areas of the face, neck, or body, which stimulate collagen production and tissue regeneration at a much deeper level than the Facial. The PRP with filler provides immediate correction of shape and volume, while promoting the growth of more young and healthy tissue.
Vein and Laser Institute offers other PRP therapy cosmetic services like the O-Shot, P-Shot, and Hair Restoration. The O-Shot caters specifically to women looking for a natural alternative to enhance their libido or correct incontinence. The P-Shot is for men interested in improving their libido without medication or surgery. Hair Restoration is a non-surgical alternative for people wanting to naturally regain their hair after hair loss or thinning.
All PRP treatments begin with blood drawn from your arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate and concentrate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells to create the PRP.
All these cosmetic procedures are non-surgical options that carry little to no risk. Because the PRP comes from your own blood rather from an outside or synthetic source, there is no risk for adverse reaction, other than soreness or bruising. These are safe, natural procedures that leave you looking and feeling like your beautiful self.
