PRP Face


PRP Face Rejuvenation Treatment Oakvill

Don’t be put off by the name; a vampire facial, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, is a revolutionary skin care treatment that effectively rejuvenates the skin and combats visible signs of ageing without chemicals or surgery.

PRP treatments have become increasingly popular as they’re a natural alternative to dermal fillers that boast impressive and virtually painless results. Whether it’s fine lines, wrinkles, or skin laxity, our PRP treatment at Elite Medical Spa can help refresh your skin and give you that youthful glow.

How Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Face Treatment Works

Why Consider A PRP Face

PRP face treatment is Health Canada approved, safe and quick way to boost collagen production in the skin to achieve a smoother and firmer look.

The treatment involves administering a high concentration of the patient’s platelets, around 5-10 times higher than the concentration inside the body, with micro-abrasions to stimulate skin tissue regeneration and repair.

PRP face are so popular because they can transform your skin with minimal pain and discomfort. There’s also virtually no chance of an adverse reaction as the treatment uses platelets derived from your own body.

Process of PRP Treatment

Step 1: Blood Draw

Our technician will draw a small sample of your blood for the PRP face.

Step 2: Centrifugation

Your blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood cells. This protein-rich plasma is what will help stimulate collagen production in your skin.

Step 3: Microneedling

A topical cream will be applied to numb your skin about 20 minutes before the treatment.

The plasma is then placed in a microneedling pen. This is a specialized tool that creates micro-punctures in your skin to make sure the PRP is able to absorb deep into the skin.

Our technician will use the microneedling device on your forehead, cheeks and other parts of your face to ensure you’re getting the most out of your PRP.

Microneedling itself also helps to stimulate collagen growth, so you’re getting double the collagen-boosting effects.

Step 4: Post-Treatment

After the treatment, you may experience some redness and minor swelling from the microneedling. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight and using a gentle skincare regimen for the next couple of days.

Why PRP Treatment Is Also Known As Vampire Facial

PRP treatment is also known as “Vampire Facial” because of the use of the patient’s blood in the treatment. Don’t worry; while there is blood involved, the procedure is safe and gentle.

Benefits of PRP Treatment

PRP treatment is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive procedure with little to no downtime. It’s especially beneficial for those with premature wrinkles, high levels of sun damage, or anyone looking for a more glowy and even-toned complexion.

PRP Treatment at Elite Medical Spa can help improve:

  • Uneven skin tone

The effects of a PRP treatment can last up to several months, but we recommend those who are dealing with dark scarring, skin damage, or severe problem areashave four to six treatments at two-week intervals to start.

How Many PRP Treatments Will I Need

The number of PRP treatments you need is determined by the condition being treated and your individual response to the treatment. Most patients require 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

However, some patients may benefit from just one or two treatments. Our medical professionals will evaluate your condition and recommend the best treatment plan during your initial consultation.

How Much Does PRP Therapy Cost?

PRP therapy costs vary according to the treatment area and the number of treatments required.

We offer competitive pricing for our PRP therapy treatments at Elite Medical Spa and will provide you with a detailed cost breakdown based on your specific needs during your consultation.

Do I Need to do anything in preparation for PRP Treatment?

You should do a few things to prepare for your PRP treatment. First, you should refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen for at least one week before your treatment, as these medications can impair healing.

Drink plenty of water before your treatment to stay hydrated, as this can improve the treatment’s effectiveness.

How long does a PRP session take?

Depending on the area being treated, a PRP session can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

Our medical professionals will draw a small amount of your blood during the session and then process it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. They will then use a small needle to inject the PRP into the treatment area.

PRP recovery, aftercare and side effects

Most patients have little to no downtime following a PRP treatment and can usually resume their normal activities immediately. However, you may notice some mild swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment area, which should disappear after a few days.

We recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol for at least 24 hours after your treatment to promote healing and ensure the best possible results. Our medical staff will give you detailed aftercare instructions and answer any questions you have about the recovery process.
