Despite its name, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy—also known as the Vampire Facial—has been gaining steam with patients who are seeking facial rejuvenation. The noninvasive procedure requires little to no downtime and is an ideal treatment for anyone seeking a more youthful appearance.
Margarita Lolis, M.D., dermatologist and member of the American Academy of Dermatology, uses PRP in a variety of instances, such as injections into the scalp to help with hair growth or used topically after microneedling or fractional laser treatments. Lolis even uses PRP in conjunction with vaginal rejuvenation procedures to help improve vaginal tightness and increase sexual arousal when injected in the G-spot or clitoris.
“PRP is basically liquid gold!” said Lolis. “It is a part of your blood that does not contain red blood cells. This part is full of many potent growth factors that build collagen and helps with keeping your skin healthy overall.”
