PRP Indications

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of the skin. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, so it is a natural and biocompatible material. When injected into the skin, PRP released growth factors that stimulate collagen production and promote healing. PRP therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, and melasma. Results can vary from patient to patient, but many people see a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin after treatment. The cost of PRP therapy can also vary depending on the number of sessions required and the area being treated. However, overall, PRP therapy is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the skin.
Platelet-rich plasma injection (PRP) is an advanced therapy option for acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. It entails drawing blood from the patient’s arm, centrifuge separation of platelets, and injection of the platelets back into the wounded tissue region. Recently, it has been a cornerstone in the cosmetic field for its benefit in

What is PRP?

This is a treatment where a vial of your blood is taken and then spun at high speed (in a centrifuge) to separate your blood into two layers: plasma and red blood cells. The plasma layer has a high concentration of platelets which contain numerous growth factors. After they are separated, these growth factors are injected into the treatment area.

For hair, it is injected into the scalp to induce new hair growth to improve the density, quality, and rate of growth of new hairs. This treatment is repeated about once a month for three months and then every three to six months afterward. PRP has been shown to decrease hair loss and increase the hair’s thickness and density.

Yes, Platelet-rich plasma known as the “Vampire Face Lift” or “Vampire Facial”, this is a non-surgical facelift and rejuvenation process. The process includes taking a blood sample and then centrifuging and mixing it with growth hormones to obtain a highly nourishing potion. [expand title=”Read More Here”]The potion is used with micro-needling to create controlled micro-wounds through which the plasma can penetrate, helping to boost the skin rejuvenation process.
Absolutely. We combine Vampire facial and PRP treatment with microneedling. Moreover, it reduces the downtime of all fractional treatment such as Fraxel laser and fractional micro-needling. These studies have also shown that PRP and Vampire facial increase the efficacy and the results of different treatments and minimize the risk of side effect such as PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation).
Vampire Facelift has become very popular since Kim Kardashian embraced the name and started to advertise it heavily on Instagram. Later on, she came to regret having the treatment as she was pregnant and was not allowed to use the numbing cream. As a result, the platelet-rich plasma treatment was painful.
Individuals seeking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on their face, hands, and neck frequently resort to PRP treatments. While PRP has not been proved to alleviate pain in these applications, it has been found to aid in the healing process following hair transplantation. There is also evidence that patients who undergo hair transplantation with PRP therapy see increased hair growth following the operation. PRP is the cornerstone treatment for the vampire facial and Vampire Face and breast lifet

PRP Treatment Complete Guide

What is Plasma?

Plasma is the biggest part of the blood. It carries all other components, such as red blood cells, through your body. In other words, the water of our blood. Think of the seawater, it has minerals, plants, and other components, all carried by the water. So the plasma for our blood is the same as the water for the sea. Are you still confused? Please watch this video to explain more about Plasma and other blood components. We use the client’s own plasma to avoid any allergic reactions.

What is the difference between Plasma and PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma is a type of plasma that we extract to have a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are important to stop bleeding and are full of essential growth factors for body rejuvenation. There are lots of factors that affect the quality of PRP harvesting such as the blood withdrawal process, PRP kit, and centrifuging angle. In order to ensure we are providing the highest quality treatment, we start by withdrawing your blood. Then we use the Regen lab PRP kit. It provides the best stability (all plasma is harvested in one tube) and the highest platelet concentration.

Are the PRP results instantaneous?

It is important to understand that it takes time to see results after applying the treatment. Think of PRP as a multivitamin you take, but instead of swallowing it, you apply it to your skin. The instant results you usually see in the picture are due to edema and inflammation after the microneedling. The results are mainly noticed after 2 months and the sessions should be repeated every 6 months if you wish to keep the results. We recommend using Platelet-rich plasma as an add on treatment for other technology such as Fraxel laser and Fractional micro-needling

What is the Vampire Facelift good for?

Due to the harsh weather and high UV exposure, our skin tends to age faster with wrinkles, pigmentation, and poor skin texture. This is an excellent treatment to help skin tightening and skin rejuvenation in general without having a specific indication or risk of side effects.

How is PRP or platelet-rich plasma injected?

Since PRP works on the skin locally, injecting the plasma in the dermis is necessary. The dermis is the middle layer of the skin. Deep injections of plasma will result in systemic absorption and loss of its benefits for facial rejuvenation, collagen induction therapy, acne scars treatment, and hair. When done properly, it improves skin elasticity, reduces pigmentation and fine lines.

What are the benefits of PRP?

With the concentrated growth hormones and focus nutrients injected into the outer layers of the skin using a meso injection gun, this is an easy and promising cosmetic technique. It gives double benefits, by delivering the PRP plasma into the skin in a robust pattern, as well as giving the micro-needling benefit of the meso gun. Also, the suction will reduce the bruising expected after the treatment. All of this combines to help with fine lines, elasticity and restores skin tone and color.

I am scared of needles, can I still have PRP?

Yes, and No, the main step for the treatment is to have growth factors prepared from your blood. In order to withdraw your blood, the health professional has to perform venipuncture. After this step, a vampire facelift can per performed as a mask or using the needle-free injection system though.

PRP Treatment Cost

Another factor in the cost is the volume of Plasma. Also, it’s important to consider the way a center injects the plasma, such as traditional needles or with a meso gun. It has been shown that the meso gun with multiple needles has better results as well as less pain and bruising. We use the Vital injector 3, the best meso gun on the market. Last but not least is the medical staff, Dr. Alhallak, Ph.D., has a long experience with medical injections and PRP.

Different PRP injection techniques

Traditional Needle Injection

Using a tiny needle to inject the PRP treatment in the required locations. We use this method if the treated area is small and confined. Since a single needle is used to inject the plasma, this method is longer and it might cause more bruises.

Vital injector Mesogun

The Vital multiple needle injector is an amazing tool that provides precise injection depth and volume. Since the mesogen is equipped with a multiple needle tip and a vacuum nozzle, it reduces pain and bruising. We perform most of our vampire facials and PRP treatments using the vital injector.

High-pressure Needle-free Application

Using high air pressure enhances the ability of the plasma to penetrate deeper into the skin without the need for any needle. This technique is new and we use it only if a patient has low pain tolerance or bleeding irregularities.

PRP Treatment care instructions

After your PRP treatment, please read and follow these instructions carefully:

  • Following your PRP injections, you will have very few restrictions and can resume your normal activities virtually immediately.
  • For at least 8 hours following your treatment, do not touch, push, massage, or manipulate the treated area(s).
  • At least three days to one week before and after your treatment, avoid taking aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen or Aleve.
  • You can use Tylenol or other Acetaminophen medicines if you’re in pain or discomfort. You may administer ice to the injected region for 20-30 minutes following the treatment if you like, although we prefer if you can avoid it.
  • After your treatment, wait at least 6 hours before washing or showering.
  • After your treatment, don’t apply any lotions, creams, or make-up for at least 6 hours.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, sun, and heat exposure for at least three days following your treatment. For three days before and after your treatment, stay away from alcohol, caffeine, and cigarettes.
  • Maintain a balanced diet and drink at least 64 ounces of water on treatment day. (Because of its high Silica content, Fiji water is suggested.)
  • During the first week following, continue to drink plenty of water.
  • Bruising, redness, itching, soreness, and swelling are common side effects that can persist anywhere from 3 to 10 days after your surgery.

Combining PRP Treatment with Microneedling

Acne scars are a common skin concern among both men and women. While there are a number of treatments available, many patients are looking for a more natural option. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets that contains growth factors. When injected into the skin, PRP can help to improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production. Microneedling is another popular treatment for acne scars. It involves using a device to create tiny punctures in the skin. This helps to prompt the skin’s healing response, resulting in the production of new collagen. When used together, PRP and microneedling can provide an effective approach for improving the appearance of acne scars.

Combining PRP Treatment with Fraxel

Fraxel laser is a popular treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. However, some patients may not achieve the desired results with this treatment alone. For these patients, combining Fraxel laser with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can provide more comprehensive rejuvenation.

PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, so there is no risk of allergic reactions or other side effects. The cost of PRP injections is also relatively low. PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors and other nutrients that can help to regenerate new collagen and skin cells. As a result, PRP injections can help to improve the tone and texture of the skin.

When used in combination with Fraxel laser, PRP can help to maximize the benefits of the treatment. Fraxel laser works by creating microscopic columns of injury in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the production of new collagen. PRP can help to accelerate this process, resulting in faster and more dramatic results.

For patients who are looking for comprehensive skin rejuvenation, combining PRP with Fraxel laser is an ideal solution.
