PRP Therapy Chicago
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, also known as the Vampire Facial, has been gaining popularity in the skincare and beauty industry rapidly. This procedure is used to improve wrinkles, sun damage, scars, and dark spots. Essentially the vampire facial defies the effects of aging that are visible on your face.
How does it work?
PRP Therapy is non surgical procedure that consists of drawing blood from your body, separating the platelets, and then putting them back in the skin on your face through microneedling. The point of the procedure is to speed up cell turnover by regenerating the skin.
There are four different components in your blood; white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. During this procedure we will draw your blood and spin it in a centerfuge which will separate your bloods cells from your platelets and plasma. This will then be reinjected into the skin on your face to stimulate cell turnover and collagen production.
PRP gives you the appearance of a facelift, but with practically no downtime. The benefits of PRP Therapy include:
- Improved skin tone
- Tighter skin
- Softer skin texture
- Smooth lines
- Smaller pores
Post Treatment & Results
It is common to have moderate swelling and redness. In some cases the client may see mild bruising in the area of treatment. These side effects are normal and part of the activation process.
The results will begin to take place as the skin returns to normal after the swelling and redness has gone down. Most clients see the results within two weeks to a month. For best results, a series of treatments is recommended for the majority of the clients and the results can last up to two years.
