What is a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial?… Has the esthetic world gone bananas? Trending in the “rejuvenation” business is this funky new facial called a Vampire facial or Platelet Rich Plasma facial. Most people know that it’s a pretty popular procedure which has to do with blood and your face and that Kim Kardashian once had it done in her show…but that’s about it.
Well, there is a reason why Kim K featured it and why a lot of folks are subjecting themselves to this mysterious facial-procedure. The reason is that it works!, and BellaVista Medi Spa is here to give you the true and false of this revolutionary procedure and why we are such big proponents of this treatment.
To explain the origin, we have to take it back to professional football and sports in general. Most pro-football athletes get paid…millions of dollars to play, perform and win the game, right? They train countless grueling hours to become lean, mean football machines until the day they get injured. Once an injury happens...the player's expert medical team treats ligaments or tissue injuries in many different ways such as surgery, physical therapy and, believe it or not, Platelet Rich Plasma injections, (though not in the face kind) but rather, at the joint that is injured.
Interested? Well here is how it works:
The medical community found that injecting the player’s platelets derived from his or her blood caused the body to stimulate, repair and build collagen around the site of injection, thus speeding production and repair time of injured tissue. The platelets in your blood are rich in growth factors and vitamins, that when concentrated send signals to your body to repair faster than normal. In the pro-football world, time is major money and the longer a player is out, the more money the team loses…so logically, treatments used on these athletes are top-notch, no non-sense, absolutely effective or they would not do it.
This has been one of the gold standards in sports medicine for a very long time. As the saying goes…What’s good for the goose is good for the Gander, no?. Precisely right, Platelet Rich Plasma facials are now becoming the gold standard for skin rejuvenation. Think of it as your custom stem cell treatment for the face. By applying your Platelet Rich Plasma onto your skin, your body will be triggered to repair and hyper-produce collagen, thus improving the appearance of fine lines, softening the texture of your skin…it even helps hair growth, where hair has been thinning…that’s how powerful this treatment is!
Why BellaVista Medi Spa team love this procedure? Here is why:
Because we want you to be comfortable during your procedure, we will apply a topical anesthetic, which contains lidocaine, and it is the only thing that someone could have an allergy reaction:
