Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy in Marina del Rey

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an increasingly popular treatment that involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, processing it through a centrifuge, and injecting it back into the treatment area. PRP is often used as a purely medical treatment in order to promote healing and reduce inflammation, but has cosmetic uses as well.

One increasingly popular cosmetic use is with the ‘Vampire Facial,’ which has been popularized by a variety of celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaeli. With this treatment, rather than injecting the processed plasma directly back into the patient, patients are treated first with facial microdermabrasion and micro-needling, and then the plasma is applied across the face directly similar to a conventional facial.
