PRP treatment is a cutting edge therapy that has proven to be an effective way to treat wounds as well as tissue and bone injuries. It has more recently been discovered to be an excellent skin rejuvenation procedure. The vampire facial, otherwise known as a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial, has been widely debated ever since Kim Kardashian West underwent the procedure during an episode of the *Keeping Up with the Kardashians* spin-off, *Kim and Kourtney Take Miami*.
Contrary to rhytidectomy, or facelifts, PRP Treatment for Face Lift is a very simple but effective procedure. Essentially it is performed by taking the blood from a patient, processing it in a centrifuge to extract the plasma - which contains platelets and growth factors - and then re-injecting it into the face, the cosmetic procedure is designed to smooth out deep lines and wrinkle and tighten saggy skin.
When the platelets are injected into the face, it tricks the body into thinking that there has been an injury and hence, bring growth factors to aid new collagen formation. The body begins to naturally rejuvenate itself. The results are quite noticeable for many. The effects of "Dracula Therapy" typically last up to one year.
