What is platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP)?
PRP is a well-known abbreviated term used to refer to platelet rich plasma therapy. Platelet rich plasma is blood that has been made rich with platelets. This therapy treatment is unique in many different ways. This treatment is used in many cases to heal wounded or soft tissues in the body.
This healing not only promotes new cell growth but also acts as a rejuvenating therapy for the skin. This is because the cells in the blood are separated from the platelets, which are then injected back into the surface of the skin in order to stimulate collagen growth.
Benefits of PRP Injections for Face
The platelet rich plasma Miami holds many benefits of which an incredible amount of people have taken advantage of in a very short amount of time. PRP therapy performed at Avana Plastic Surgery is used to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin by using the patient’s own blood in order to extract the platelets in the plasma that stimulate cell and collagen growth.
This therapy is often used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face caused by the lack of collagen in the skin. As we age, the soft tissues in our skin begin to deteriorate, causing a loose and flabby look. The use of platelet rich plasma can have incredible effects including the minimization of any acne scarring, stimulation of collagen growth and tightening/toning of the skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma Preparation
Before a platelet rich plasma procedure is performed, a potential patient must have a consultation in order to assess all of their cosmetic wants and needs and to determine the best way to achieve the individual’s maximum results. Once this has been done, the individual will have their blood taken and immediately place within a specific centrifuge. This facilitates the separation of the platelets from the blood, which will be used to perform the PRP therapy. Once all of the platelets in the blood have been separated and the plasma is ready to be used, the area in which the therapy will be performed will be numbed and the platelet rich plasma is then inserted into the skin through a small insulin needle.
1- Collecting Blood from Patient
Very similarly to a blood draw at a local blood bank or a doctor’s office, a certified phlebotomist will be in charge of removing a small amount of blood from the patient. Because there is no difference between a blood collection at a doctor’s office and the draw of blood at our site, there is no physical pain involved in any part of the procedure.
2- Separate the Platelets
Once the blood has been collected from the patient, it is immediately placed in the centrifuge to facilitate the platelets from the blood that was obtained.
3- Extract Platelet Rich Plasma
Once the platelets in the blood have been separated from the blood itself, it is very easy to extract a clear fluid called plasma. This is the fluid that will be enriched with the platelets that were separated and will then be prepared to be used as an injection.
4- PRP Injection
The platelet rich plasma injection consists of the platelet rich fluids that were extracted from the blood. Once this has been extracted and collected, it is then prepared and put into a small insulin needle and is then injected back into the skin.
Although this therapy is very similar to Botox, this injection will be relatively painless with the use of local anesthesia that will be provided to minimize the discomfort.
PRP injection cost in Miami
Although the platelet rich plasma therapy takes no longer than an hour to perform, the procedure is composed of several different steps that can be pretty time consuming. Because this procedure has become such a sensation, there are many cosmetic surgery centers who will offer competitive pricing however this procedure can range anywhere from $800 to $1,500 depending on the area in which this therapy is performed and the amount of prp Miami used to treat the desired area.
What is PRP Facial Treatment (Vampire Facelift)
A vampire facelift became an extraordinary sensation the moment that a celebrity Kim Kardashian posted a photo of her face covered in her own blood in order to rejuvenate her skin. A vampire facelift is simply a term used to describe and distinguish a facelift procedure that is non-surgical and non-toxic. This facelift consists of the reinjection of the platelet rich plasma found in the blood of the patient into the face. This is done because the platelets in the plasma stimulate the growth of collagen cells and tighten soft tissues in the face that might have lost their elasticity due to endless factors including gravity or aging.
The effects of this platelet rich plasma or PRP vampire facelift in the skin can have incredible effects without the addition of any toxins or chemicals in the skin such as those used in Botox procedures. It is a true medical advancement to have found a way to perform a facelift without surgery or toxins.
What Are the Side Effects of PRP Therapy?
Unlike many cosmetic therapies and procedures, platelet rich plasma injections are relatively painless and hold very little side effects. Because there are no chemicals being placed into the skin, only your own blood, there are very slim chances that you will face any kind of reaction from the injection itself. Swelling is common due to the fact that the skin is being touched and poked by a small needle, but this should fade within an hour or two.
Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Miami
Depending on your cosmetic wants and needs, a vampire facelift can bare more benefits than a traditional facelift. For example, a traditional facelifts consists of surgical alterations to the skin in the face and requires down time after the procedure in order to recover. A vampire facelift on the other hand is relatively painless, involves no surgery what so ever and does not inject chemicals into the skin.
No. Very similar to any and all cosmetic procedures, prp Miami therapy does bare side effects, although they are very minimal and are not harmful to the individual. These side effects can range from swelling to irritation and a sensation of itching in the face. In very rare cases, bruising can occur from the reaction of the skin to the physical injection itself but the only thing being injected into your own dermis.
Each time an individual undergoes a treatment or therapy session, they will bare results for a variety of time that usually lasts between 9 to 24 months. Just like all cosmetic procedures, this is not a once in a lifetime treatment, but it can however bare incredible results for a relatively long amount of time.
Absolutely not. The most beneficial part of a vampire facelift is the fact that it is a nonsurgical procedure and does not have any downtime. This means that you can come into our cosmetic surgery site and have a short therapy session and go back to work in the next hour! Because this is a noninvasive procedure, you won’t have any bruising or pain either but you will feel a tightening sensation in the skin, as a sign that the platelets are taking an effect on the skin.
The vampire facelift is a noninvasive procedure that does not involve the use of any chemical or toxic medications or injections. Instead of having surgery on the face to tighten and lift the skin, a vampire facelift only uses the platelets in the plasma of the blood. By doing this, the chances of an allergic reaction occurring are minimized and the body only absorbs the biological make up of its own blood. The use of this plasma tightens and rejuvenates the skin by promoting collagen production.
Although the name is a tad bit frightening, this procedure is extremely safe and effective due to the fact that your own blood is being used to stimulate cell growth and rejuvenation. This is the only 100% natural way to lift and promote skin tightening in the cosmetic industry and is completely painless. This procedure does not leave any scars or require any downtime unlike other procedures such as traditional facelifts or Botox. Since the primary “medicine” being injected in the patient’s face is the platelets from their own blood, it is very unlikely for an allergic reaction to occur.
