PRP

We utilize the PRP (platelet rich plasma) in our clinic and the entire procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. It is possible to achieve your desired results after just one treatment, however, additional treatments are generally recommended. We will determine the best approach for you individually.

 

What is PRP?

PRP also known as the vampire filler or vampire facelift, is a process in cosmetic surgery. It is a way of extracting platelets from the patient's own blood and using them as a dermal filler – that is, as a substance injected under the skin of the face to fill out wrinkles so as to provide a more youthful appearance.


During the procedure, Blood is drawn from the patient's arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, which are then injected back under the patient's facial skin. It can also be combined with other fillers, and a procedure using this combination has been trademarked as "vampire facelift".

 

PRP FAQ

How long does the procedure take?
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in Richmond Cosmetics clinic.

 

How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and our treatment plan. As a stand-alone therapy, we recommend a series of one to three injection sessions spaced from four to six weeks apart for optimal results.

 

Is the treatment painful?
Unlike other products that are acidic (low pH), PRP® has close to physiologic pH. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, and occasional redness and bruising immediately following the treatment that resolves quickly.

 

Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve within two days.

 

How long does it last?
The longevity of the results of PRP® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.

 

Can anyone be allergic to PRP®?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction and no allergic reactions have been reported to date. The PRP® System is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient’s own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.

 

What does PRP® cost?
Fees may range from $800-1,200 per treatment session, based on the extent of the treatment and the individual healthcare practitioner.
