Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Skin and Hair Rejuvenation Therapy Chicago
PRP for Hair Growth | Vampire Facial Chicago | Vampire Facelift Chicago
Popularly known as a Vampire Facial in Chicago (or Vampire Facelift), platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a great technique to use for enhancing facial and skin appearance because it uses material from a patient’s own body, which greatly reduces the risks of infection and allergic reaction. PRP is rich in growth factors. These growth factors can stimulate proliferative processes. In the case of hair, it makes hair grow faster and thicker. In the case of skin, it stimulates collagen formation.
It is used like other facial fillers, to plump facial skin, make it look brighter, and to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
The process of injecting platelet-rich plasma into a patient involves first removing a vial of blood, usually from the patient’s arm. The blood is then separated into red blood cells and plasma by a centrifuge. The plasma is now packed with platelets and injected into the face via a small, thin needle into areas that need improvement.
The injected platelets form a fibrin mesh that ultimately stimulates the body’s production of collagen, the main material that supports skin health and vitality. Platelet-rich plasma injections are particularly effective when used in conjunction with other filler treatments.
