How Does PRP for the Face Differ From Botox?

PRP treatment for your face differs substantially from the typical cosmetic treatments available, such as Botox and fillers. Often times people that have Botox and/or fillers will notice that their face either seems to be quite frozen from the Botox so that they lack facial expression, or that the fillers cause their face to be a little bit over “plumped up” looking. So, as soon as they walk out of a cosmetic facility, people will notice that they’ve had something done to their face.

With Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for the face, that’s not the case. You won’t look either frozen or over-plumped up, just rejuvenated and it gives your face a healthy glow so people wouldn’t necessarily notice that you’ve had some work done. After a few days they’ll definitely notice the difference!

Another important concept is the duration of the treatments. Botox and fillers will tend to wear off in three or four months, but the benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma can last for 12 to 18 months.

And finally, platelets, of course, are part of your own body. We take a blood sample out of your arm and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from your blood cells. We’re using something that’s completely natural and we’re using something that your own body manufactures to be able to help to rejuvenate your tissues. We’re not using and injecting any artificial substances or chemicals.

These are the ways that PRP or a Vampire Facelift® differs substantially from Botox and fillers.
