Although PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy may sounds like an experimental procedure, you may be surprised to learn that doctors have been successfully using platelet-rich plasma injections for decades. PRP skin treatments, which are excellent for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation, are no exception.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is derived from your own blood. Plasma is a part of our blood that is rich in nutrients, vitamins, and growth factors that contain dozens of platelets. These platelets are responsible for healing, cell growth, and tissue repair. When PRP is injected or used in microneedling, the growth factors help to kick-start tissue regeneration and form brand-new collagen and elastin.
Dr. Julia Giyaur can help you reach your aesthetic goals by using your very own blood for anti-aging effects, collagen stimulation, skin rejuvenation, and softening wrinkles. Sometimes called the “vampire facelift” or “vampire facial”, a PRP facial is frighteningly good at improving the skin’s texture!
PRP treatments are a safe, natural, and effective method to restore collagen and elasticity in the skin. Post-procedure, the injection sites of the skin respond to the boost of growth factors by producing more collagen and reducing inflammation.
This is wonderful, because collagen production naturally begins to decline as we become older, and PRP tricks the body into producing more. The result is skin that behaves as though it’s younger — because it is!

Although concentration of platelets was originally developed for blood transfusions, in the 1980s doctors discovered additional uses for the nutrient-rich cells. It was found that platelet-rich plasma produces a reduction in tissue inflammation and promotes tissue regeneration. With this information, doctors began leveraging the healing abilities of platelet-rich plasma for many uses.
This included the treatment of chronic conditions and utilizing PRP in cosmetic procedures. Since the PRP is processed from the patient’s own blood, this procedure is a favorite among medical professionals because there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection by the body. The benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy supplement cosmetic surgical procedures by reducing inflammation and speeding up the healing process. This shortens recovery time and enhances results.
Yes. Licensed and trained physicians use well-documented methods to introduce your own healing plasma back into your skin. Platelet-rich plasma therapy carries a lower risk of negative drug reactions because the only drug used for this procedure is a local anesthetic. In addition, because the autologous platelet-rich plasma is processed from your own blood, there’s practically no risk of allergic reaction.
Treatment is comfortable because a local anesthetic will be used prior to administering the injections. Some treatment plans require several PRP injection sessions for the best possible results. A typical PRP facial follows these simple steps:
Some patients opt for microneedling with PRP. This is when the platelet-rich plasma is distributed into the skin over a larger surface area during a microneedling treatment instead of simple injections into the face. Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment wherein a hand-held device uses ultra-fine needles to trigger collagen growth. As your body recovers from a “microneedling with PRP” treatment, the tiny punctures created heal quickly with the help of the extra platelets, which stimulates the skin to produce more collagen while evening your skin’s texture and tone. This procedure works like magic, but in fact, it’s simple science.

Swelling is very common after a PRP facial, but it typically only lasts only a day or two. This swelling is a result of the growth factors causing “good inflammation”, which eventually results in skin remodeling. Bruising may also happen, as is common with procedures that involve injections.
