When most people think of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox treatments are often the first solution that comes to mind. While Botox is an easy and effective way to resolve signs of aging, PRP is another great option. So, what exactly is PRP and how does it help with fine lines and wrinkles? Keep reading to find out!

What is PRP?
PRP is a component of your blood that contains special factors or proteins that help it clot. It can promote the growth of healthy cells and do wonders for your skin. At Renew MD, we use PRP in a Vampire Facial to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and restore your youthfulness. To retrieve your PRP, we’ll take a small blood sample and place it into a centrifuge. Then, we’ll separate your PRP from your red and white blood cells.
How the Vampire Facial Works
Once we have your PRP, an expert provider will spread it over your face. Then, they’ll use the Venus VIVA device to deliver tiny needles into your skin. The needles will replicate an injury so that your body can stimulate new collagen, the protein that keeps your skin looking young and beautiful.
Most Vampire Facial treatments take anywhere between 30 and 40 minutes to complete. They are relatively painless but if you’re concerned about pain, we can apply a topical numbing plan to make sure you remain comfortable. Although you may notice an immediate improvement in your skin, it’ll take two to three months for complete results to appear.
Good Candidate for the Vampire Facial
If you would like to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a rejuvenated appearance, a Vampire Facial is a great option. It can also help you diminish the look of acne scars and resolve dark circles under your eyes. A Vampire Facial may also make sense if you hope to look younger without anesthesia or extensive downtime. You should not undergo this treatment if you are living with a blood condition or taking blood thinners.
