What is PRP?

vampire facials

Many people ask us about our PRP facials because they are brought in by the term, vampire facials! But many people will come in here asking about the service without even knowing what Platelet Rich Prolotherapy is.

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy is very useful and effective in cases of severe labral and meniscal (knee) tears, chronic osteoarthritis of the knee and even avascular necrosis of the hip. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma involves drawing some of your blood and then processing it and using the growth factors in this blood to start the healing and eventual pain relief.

How do PRP Facials Work?

PRP Facials work by using the PRP from above and injecting it directly into your face where the wrinkles are forming. This cocktail of healthy cells plus the platelets create a rejuvenating effect on the face. Bringing back natural, healthy looking skin to your face over time!

What’s better PRP Facials or Botox?


While PRP facials are cocktails of healthy cells stimulating growth and skin rejuvenation in the cells. Botox is a poison that causes paralysis on the skin cells in the face.

While PRP creates natural, productive healing in the face, Botox will cause immediate reactions that lift the face unnaturally. While both have their positives and negatives, the PRP facials are a subtle way to bring back healthy looking skin.

What are Vampire Facials?

Another term for PRP facials are vampire facials, and this has to do with the way it looks on your face. There are tiny weeping wounds on your face that will cause an increase of positive blood flow to the face and many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, fully endorse this process.
