It’s known as the ‘vampire facial’, unlocking the power of healing for hair and skin restoration.
What is PRP?
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy has been a breakthrough treatment for stimulation of new collagen, enhancing microcirculation, and regrowth of healthy new skin and hair. The procedure consists of drawing blood from the patient, similar to how blood work is done, and then the blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the platelets from the other blood components. When the platelets and plasma have been concentrated, they are reintroduced into the patient with injections. Our professionals use sterilized needles to administer the PRP below the skin’s surface. By doing so, it encourages the healing process to trigger a new network of collagen and elastin in the skin and can regenerate hair growth as well when injected into the scalp region. ML Aesthetics Clinic is committed to helping our clients achieve their aesthetic desires, we provide PRP treatments for facial rejuvenation and for those experiencing hair complications.
PRP does wonders for many reasons, it not only improves the overall health of the skin, but it can reduce visible signs of aging. Another benefiting factor is that it’s a completely natural procedure since the treatment product is your own plasma, which means there is no harm in transmitting the PRP into the skin. PRP stimulates the stem cells to tighten, regenerate, and contour the tissue where injected. Besides combatting a variation of skin concerns, it has also been effectively proven to regenerate hair growth for those experiencing hair loss or thinning.

The treatment can take up to 1-2 hours to complete. This time frame includes the blood drawn to being put in the centrifuge for separation and the application of topical numbing cream.
