Anti-aging Therapy with Young Blood (Plasma): What’s It All About?

Young blood or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the watery component of blood that doesn’t contain cells.

When using young blood in experiments with mice, wonderful results happen – making brain, liver, and muscles of old mice functioning much better.

Even more so, the blood is doing miracles rejuvenating your skin (the blood used in treating the skin is your own blood, of course!)

The procedure is sometimes called a “blood facial” or “vampire facial.”

The History of Using Platelet-rich Plasma

PRP has been used for a long time in different branches of medicine such as orthopedics, dentistry, and surgery. It was developed in the 1970s and first used in 1987 in one heart surgery.

Using blood is a popular trend in dermatology these days.

That’s why we at [primary_practice] are also offering this treatment!

What is the Procedure?

Before the procedure, a doctor will numb and clean your skin. Then he/she will draw a small amount of your own blood from the arm and extract the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. Then he/she injects this platelet-rich plasma into the skin. The process takes about 15 minutes and it’s only slightly uncomfortable. For the optimal results, there should be 3 sessions, repeated every 1 to 2 months.

Making your skin younger

The blood is making skin smoother and finer, it’s reducing the wrinkles, and even causing the hair to grow. This is due to hormones and proteins that are found in plasma. Growth factors help your skin, increasing elastin and collagen, and supplying your skin with antioxidants. A doctor can use it as regular facial, together with microneedling, or only inject the blood into the skin.

Recovering from the treatment

A recovery takes just day or two, followed by little redness and swelling. You should avoid makeup and wear sunscreen. There are no negative side-effects because this is your own blood. Results are visible 3 weeks after the process and continue to improve.

Is it for you?

If you have wrinkles, your skin has been damaged by the sun, or you just want your skin to look fresher and firmer, this treatment is for you! In case you have some blood disorders, you will be advised not to undergo this treatment. Otherwise, you should go through this adventure!
