As we age, skin texture becomes less smooth, and as a result, the person looks worn, tired, or droopy. The lively, rosy hue seen in children and young adults fades to gray. PRP treatments such as the Vampire Facelift ® are medical procedures in which platelet-derived growth factors obtained from a person’s own blood are injected back into the skin of their face or in other specifically defined areas to enhance appearance and health.
One of the newest developments in the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and loss of volume in the face, breasts, and other areas of the body, PRP treatments use the growth factors from your own blood to help restore your natural beauty. Unlike other fillers that use synthetic substances to treat wrinkles and loss of volume, PRP uses biological processes to address skin defects, triggering production of new cells and collagen formation.
This type of treatment has been used for years by doctors to promote healing and tissue regeneration in many areas of the body, including torn ligaments from sports injuries, other orthopedic injuries, cardiac surgery, and wound healing. In cosmetic applications, PRP can be used to give a fuller appearance to fine lines and wrinkles, nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines, marionette lines and delicate areas around the eyes such as crow’s feet, where fillers cannot address.
Unlike most fillers, the Vampire Facelift ® offers a way of both restoring shape, and improving tone and texture, as well as literally rejuvenating the face and creating new and younger tissue! At El Con Health and Wellness Center, we can use your body’s plasma alone, or in conjunction with other fillers to create more dramatic results.
Besides the face, PRP can also be used successfully on hands, breasts, and other areas of the body to increase volume and stimulate growth of new elastin and collagen. When used on the scalp, PRP stimulates rejuvenation of the hair follicles, and in many patients, dramatic hair regrowth can be seen. This is an excellent, non-invasive alternative to hair transplant or hair plug treatments.
PRP treatments can also be used to improve sexual health and function of both men and women! Learn more about the O-Shot for women and P-shot for men.
