If you pay any attention to the Kardashians, or skincare trends, or both, you may remember Kim Kardashian West’s televised and much-talked-about“vampire facelift” back in 2013.
Theprocedure thatKardashian West received,also sometimes referred to as a non-surgical facelift, is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP)injection facial—and it’s available at MagnifaSkin MedSpa in Wilmington.
The all-natural procedure has become extremely popular.Ityields firmer, smoother skin texture, improved skin tone and color, and a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles—all in just a few days. Plus, itcan decrease the appearance of acne scars and makeskin looktighter, smoother andmore youthful.
Here’s how it works:
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s armand put into a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge isolates the blood’splatelet-rich plasma(PRP). A microneedling procedure theninjects the PRP into the patient’s face. (Head to MagnifaSkin Medspa’s Facebook page to see a video of how it’s done!)
Why does this procedure produce suchgreat results? Becauseinjecting platelets into the face tricks the body into thinking that there has beenan injury. Thisharnessesthe body’s natural healing and regenerative abilities, promptingnew collagenformationin the face.
MagnifaSkin MedSpa also uses PRP injections to stimulate new hair growth, either in dormant hair follicles or newly transplanted ones. Many patients seean increase in hair density as soon as four months aftertheirfirst treatment. Treatments are generally done ata minimum ofthree times per year, spaced one month apart;after that,maintenance treatmentsare doneapproximately twice a year.
