PRP works on the simple basis of utilizing your own natural platelets found in your blood cells, hence the term Vampire Facial, to instruct the body to create new collagen, which results in rejuvenated skin. Utilized in various ways, the platelet solutions can be introduced with injections (using the Vital Injector2) or more frequently as a topical addition to resurfacing, micro needling or EPN Treatments.
How does it work? +−
20cc of blood is taken and placed in a specialized vial and spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. This process concentrates the platelets. This is called platelet-rich plasma. With The IStem PRP Kit, we can get what is called the Buffy Coat, which is the most concentrated PRP you can get.
Healing platelets rush in to create a rich fibrin mesh. This fibrin mesh, in turn, calls out to natural healing cells, releasing growth factors and stimulating the process of fibroblast production to energize and heal. Fibroblasts are the cells within the body that produces collagen
PRP results in: +−
- Healthier looking skin
- Thicker dermis (reducing wrinkles and scars)
- Improved tone
The PRP Facial consists of PRP applied to skin that has been prepared through a Micro Needling device with the EPN Micro Needling. This micro-needling makes tiny “wounds” in the skin which accept the PRP serum and begins the process of collagen creation along with the tissue enhancement from growth factors found in the plasma serum
Vampire Lift with PRP. +−
This is PRP that is injected into the skin using the Vital Injector2 to get the PRP deep into the dermis getting a lifting effect and deeper rejuvenating effect on the skin.
