PRP for face also know as Vampire Facelift. This involves drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, spinning it in a machine called a centrifugal machine, in order to isolate the platelet-rich plasma from the red and white blood cells. Re-injecting the activated platelets into the patient’s face to produce brighter and smoother skin. It’s a non-surgical treatment that relies on the body’s own, natural healing mechanisms.
FDA has approved the use of growth factors for many medical procedures and many people are getting these injections to help them in repairing conditions like Tennis Elbow, Arthritis and Tendonitis.
Only a professional and a fully-trained medical practitioner should perform the procedure as it involves some risks (though rare) which cannot be overlooked. Dr. Ashwin M Budihal is a Bangalore-based cosmetic and Dermatosurgeon, having years of experience in PRP for the face. He is an ideal cosmetic and Dermatology practitioner in the current times.
