Now Look up to 10 Years Younger
“The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)” A procedure that started as a way to speed up healing for sports injuries is beginning to gain popularity as a facial. Claimed benefits of the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Facial Injections include reducing the prominence of scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and dark circles. Supposedly, your skin will be tighter and more radiant after undergoing the procedure. Yet, rigorous scientific studies on this popular “Vampire Facial” procedure find that it is no more effective than injecting saltwater into your face.
Kim Kardashian popularized PRP Facials a couple of years ago and gave them their informal name, the “Vampire Facial.” First of all, the procedure does not even require a certified surgeon. The operation can be done in spas by dermatologists and estheticians. The process begins by drawing a couple of vials of blood from the arm of the patient. The blood is centrifuged to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood. A local anesthetic is applied to the face, and the platelets are shot into the face via mini injection holes. Commonly, PRP Injections are paired with microneedling, a tactic in which fine needles puncture the skin, stimulating cells to create more collagen and producing a youthful look. These facials are not FDA approved because technically, the patient is not getting injected with drugs, but their own blood.
