PRP Face Treatment
Rejuvenate your face with a Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment PRP in Kelowna
PRP Treatment for the Face
Commonly referred to as a Vampire facelift, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are a way of enhancing the face using your own blood products, which is why it got the name.
However, we inject PRP using a special technology called U225, which injects small droplets of PRP at a precise depth. This top of the line technology makes the procedure virtually painless and doesn't leave your face looking all bloody (you've probably seen those images on the internet!). In fact, you could easily go to a function right after having the treatment done.
Your blood is extracted and spun in a centrifuge which gets rid of the white and red blood cells and just leaves the platelets.
Platelets are rich in growth factors. We inject these into your face in problem areas like wrinkles around the mouth and crows feet around the eyes. The platelets rejuvenate the elastic and connective tissue properties in the skin so that it softens the face, it erases some of the wrinkles and fine lines, and gives you a more youthful appearance.
Unlike procedures like Botox and fillers, which are quite temporary and basically "iron out" the skin, the benefits from platelet rich plasma injections in the face can last for 12 to 18 months.
Most people will notice an immediate benefit right after the very first injection.
We recommend three injections of platelet rich plasma approximately 3-4 weeks apart.

At the request of the client we take before and after photos for their medical records and personal use. These images are not released for public viewing for the following reasons:
- The majority of our clients do not want to advertise that they are having cosmetic procedures done and we respect and protect their privacy.
- It is commonplace for websites to post before and after photos that have been photoshopped or are stock photography. We do not feel this is a fair representation and instead invite you to view testimonials and comments from some of our previous and current clients who have volunteered to share their experiences here at Pagdin Health.
