Aesthetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

We are excited to now offer facial and scalp Aesthetic Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) at Naturmend. This treatment option (commonly referred to as the vampire facelift) has been growing in popularity and with good reason!

Aesthetic PRP is a wonderful way to support the natural aging process of your skin.  By stimulating your own growth factors & stem cells to produce collagen, we can slow or reverse the signs of aging. You can think of it as total rejuvenation for your scalp and/or face.

How does it work?
It is an injection of your own concentrated platelets & growth factors into your skin to increase collagen production, even out skin tone, and improve the general appearance of your skin. This is all done by a small blood draw, separation of your platelet rich plasma (which is rich in growth factors) from the rest of your blood components which we then inject back into your skin to help improve the look of your skin.
Areas of treatment may include: eyes, frown lines, nasolabial folds, jawline, cheeks, neck, décolletage, backs of hands, scalp and more. Results are most noticeable in 4-6 weeks, and for best results a minimum of 3 treatments is recommended. Maintenance treatments are recommended every 6 months.

Benefits of Aesthetic PRP:

  • Improved volume in face
  • Decreased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduced appearance of scarring from acne
  • Regenerated tissue
  • Decreased sagging skin
  • New hair growth on the scalp (scalp PRP)
  • New collagen growth
  • Supports formation of Extracellular Matrix formation
  • Minimal side effects and no risk of allergy as it uses your own plasma
  • Encourages new vessel growth (blood flow = nutrient delivery to tissues)
  • Minimal recovery time (some bruising or redness may occur)

Additional benefits are seen when using a regenerative skincare line like Osmosis that supports growth factor function and collagen formation.
