Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Also known as the Vampire Facial, the PRP Facial utilizes the patient’s own platelets to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote healing. At The Skin Care Center at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we combine a PRP Facial, a PRP topical application, and a Micro-Needling facial, to improve the effects of Micro-Needling and create the maximum benefit for your skin.
The Benefits of PRP (Natural Growth Factors)
Growth factors are essential for skin health. Instead of relying on synthetic growth factors, a PRP Facial uses the growth factors naturally found in abundance in Platelet Rich Plasma. A PRP Facial uses the patient’s own PRP to allow their natural growth factors to enter the skin, with the following benefits:
- Reduced fine lines & wrinkles.
- Smoother, younger looking skin.
- Reduced hyper-pigmentation.
- Improved overall skin health.
- Reduced the appearance of scars.
- Improved skin firmness.
Combining Procedures (PRP + Micro-Needling)
While we do perform PRP and Micro-Needling separately with tremendous results, combining them harnesses the maximum healing benefits of the natural growth factors.
- More PRP Enters the Skin
Micro-needling creates access for more of the PRP to enter the skin. More PRP means more growth factors!
- More Healing = More Collagen & More New Cells
As skin heals from Micro-Needling, the additional PRP encourages the production of extra collagen, and the growth of new cells. This enhanced healing response has a profound effect, resulting in firm, smooth, and younger looking skin.
