The PRP therapy is also known as "Vampire Lifting". This nickname she got thanks to Kim Kardashian, who has made this bloodsucker method popular.
On the website RealSelf.com the majority of women report that they are very satisfied with their "VampireLifting". At RealSelf, women can share their experience of cosmetic surgery and get their questions answered. These are answered competently by doctors. Also a doctors evaluation takes place here. One patient said the results of her Dracula lifting lasted over three months. Another reported that her face was still glowing 5 weeks after the vampire lift and her skin was still smooth. A 54-year-old woman in New York opted for PRP therapy instead of Botox after hearing too many negative stories about the latter treatment. She said she noticed a big difference in her face and was very happy with what she looks like now.
The combination of PRP and Microneedle creates even better results.
A study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery compared the results of two different combination therapies. The first combination was PRP with a treatment called Microneedling, a collagen induction therapy. The second combined Microneedling along with Vitamin C. The treatments were performed in patients with acne scars.
Thirty patients, ages 18 to 34, participated in the study in 2013 and received four treatments at 4-week intervals. The right side of each patient's face was treated with the PRP combo and the left side with the vitamin C combination. Participating patients all had acne scars rated Grade II, III or IV on Goodman and Baron Skala. Before and after treatment, they were photographed in the same positions, with the same lighting and against the same background.
Both patients and physicians subsequently evaluated the improvement and alteration of acne scars using the Goodman and Baron scale. In 23 out of 30 patients, the scars were reduced by one to two degrees with the PRP combination.
Most women who have tried the combination of Microneedle and PRP rated the treatment as good to excellent. Dr. Lisa Zdinak, head of Precision Aesthetics, said plasma naturally stimulates and "wakes" the patient's stem cells, producing more collagen. That's what makes the skin younger. Zdinak said the plasma contains molecules and proteins that deliver nutrients to the skin cells. This is the healthiest and most natural way to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars and other effects of aging. In conjunction with extra collagen, it is even more effective.
