How does platelet-rich plasma (PRP) rejuvenate my face?
Vampire procedures were named for their use of PRP, which is made from blood. PRP consists of a small amount of plasma that has a higher concentration of platelets than the number typically in your blood.
Platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which your body uses to repair old tissues and heal injured tissues. When Dr. Ghalili infuses your skin with PRP, it triggers the production of skin cells, collagen, elastin, blood vessels, and other tissues needed to rejuvenate your skin.
