PRP

While no medspa treatment can truly give you eternal youth, The Skin Clinic is pleased to offer what has become known affectionately in the industry as the “vampire facelift,” which does effectively roll back the clock on your skin’s appearance.

What is PRP?

PRP is created from blood drawn from your body. Your medspa professional will use a centrifuge to separate the platelets and fibrin in the blood, then prepare a dermal filler. This filler is a concentrate formed from platelets and fibrin, which is then used for your facial restructuring.

This procedure (also sometimes called a vampire facial) uses your body’s own platelets to heal a variety of aging-related issues, including:

  • Pock marks
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Skin divots
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Wrinkles and lines around the mouth, nose or forehead

There is no actual magic behind the vampire facial. Scottsdale residents and visitors receiving this treatment benefit from skin cell growth promoted by an injection of platelet rich protein, or PRP

How does PRP treat skin issues?

The PRP-based dermal filler prepared from your blood will be injected just under the skin. This triggers new skin cell growth, resulting in stronger collagen support structure with firmer facial skin.

Will I see results right away?

Most patients start to see results within a few weeks of starting PRP treatments.

Do PRP treatments hurt?

No. Your medspa professional will numb the skin before providing a targeted PRP injection as part of your vampire facelift.
