PRP therapy involves the use of your own blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells. PRP has been used in Sports Medicine for years to treat injured areas of the body and help speed recovery after surgery. PRP is now also used in aesthetic treatments, made popular by celebrities, including the PRP Facelift (Vampire Facelift), PRP Facial (Vampire Facial), and PRP Hair Restoration. PRP injection treatment is an effective and natural way to stimulate skin renewal for a healthier, more youthful appearance.
During an PRP procedure, the patient’s blood is drawn into a tube which is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood, allowing it to be reconstituted into a gel which can then be injected into the skin, scalp, and joints.
PRP Hair Restoration
PRP therapy can be used to help men and women suffering from hair loss by stimulating hair follicle growth. The platelet-rich plasma is strategically injected into the scalp. The platelets can then trigger hair growth. PRP for hair restoration typically requires a series of treatments over a period of months in order to achieve the best possible results.

PRP Facelift (Vampire Facelift)
Platelet-rich plasma separated from the blood can be turned into a gel that works like a dermal filler, which is then injected into problem areas in order to help regenerate the skin and add volume. At Metabolix Wellness, we also micro-needle the PRP, which creates micro-channels, allowing PRP to penetrate deeply into the skin and become more effective. Traditional hyaluronic filler (Juvederm) is then used to plump and smooth for immediate results.
Pricing starts at $899, with an average cost of $1,599, but varies between patients depending on the amount of filler used. For an exact price, please schedule a consultation. Econsults and financing available
Microneedling with PRP (Vampire Facial)
On its own, microneedling is a highly effective procedure that can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, fade scars and stretch marks, and soften uneven texture. When platelet-rich plasma is added to the procedure, patients can experience enhanced results with a much shorter healing time as a result of the extra boost of tissue-regenerating cells. Typically, PRP is applied to the skin topically following the microneedling treatment. The miniscule openings in the skin provide direct paths for the platelet-rich plasma to penetrate the skin and target the deeper tissues for amazing results. For best results, you will need to undergo 3-4 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. To maintain long lasting results, you will need to come for one additional maintenance treatment every year.
