Now Offering “Platelet Rich Plasma” PRP Facials in Birmingham, MI
AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI is proud to announce the addition of PRP Facials to our list of anti-aging and skin rejuvenating services.
We are among the few medical spas in the entire Detroit area to offer this latest technology in PRP Platelet Rich Plasma skin care. This exciting and somewhat mysterious sounding procedure is often times called the “Vampire Facial” in reference to the use of the patient’s own blood in the process – but we prefer the correct medical term of “Platelet Rich Plasma” or “PRP” facial.
How PRP “Platelet Rich Plasma” Facials Work
The process begins with a routine type of blood draw from the patient’s arm. From there, a centrifuge is used to isolate the platelets which contain the body’s natural “growth factors”. Spinning the blood isolates this growth factor to up to 8 times that found in blood.
The growth factor rich PRP is then injected into the skin, either via syringe or microneedling, which stimulates the skin’s natural ability to replenish its cells.
The result is an increase in the skin’s collagen and elastin, for younger and more radiant skin, eliminating wrinkles and lines and overall improving tightness, tone, “plumpness” and elasticity.
PRP Facials, the Celebrity Secret
Many celebrities like the Kardashians and Bar Rafaela have been seen on social media, posting their photos of this so-called “Vampire Facial” for the fun of shocking their audience with the “bloody” photos. But the reason they truly love this procedure is for its amazing, 100% natural, transformative results.
Though the bloody effects may look a bit scary, this treatment is not painful and not at all dangerous – in spite what its nickname “Vampire Facial’ name suggests.
PRP Facials & Microneedling
At AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we combine the amazing benefits of the Platelet Rich Plasma, with ultrafine microneedling to optimize results of PHP facials for the patient.
In addition to enabling the PRP to penetrate more deeply, the microneedling “tricks” the body into believe that it has been injured. This activates the body’s normal healing response to rush to repair the “wounded” – reconstructing and renewing the skin. The resulting increase in collagen and elastin plumps and tightens the skin – filling and smoothing lines, wrinkles and even scars.
Patients will see dramatically improved skin texture as the result of just one treatment. However, for best results, it is typically recommended that patients have multiple treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to further diminish any signs of aging.
