Liquid Gold For Your Skin & Hair
PRP, also known platelet-rich plasma therapy, the vampire facial, the blood facial or PRP hair restoration is a treatment that uses your own blood to recharge your skin and hair. Your blood is drawn by standard blood draw, then put into a centrifuge where it is spun to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich in growth factors that stimulate natural tissue healing, is then applied after a microneedling session or injected across the scalp at the level of the hair follicles. Historically, PRP has been used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery to help speed up wound healing and recovery. Now, it’s one of the most popular treatments in aesthetic medicine to help damaged, aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, youthful skin texture. PRP is one of the most sought after treatment options for hair loss and alopecia as it increases hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Why Microneedle Before Your PRP Facial?
Although some conditions, like thinning hair, benefit the most from targeted PRP micro-injection, when PRP is applied as a serum after microneedling, it penetrates more evenly and deeply into your skin through the tiny channels created by the treatment to provide concentrated healing capacity where you want it most. In the weeks following treatment, your skin undergoes a cellular transformation for noticeably smoother, plumper, softer skin.
