Nicknamed the vampire facial, platelet rich plasma facial rejuvenation hit the headlines when Kim Kardashian posted a viral selfie in 2013. But this treatment is so much more than a celebrity fad!
Platelet-rich plasma injections are the all-natural way to achieve tighter, plumper, more youthful skin. It uses your body’s own cells, called platelets, to stimulate the skins stem cells, leading to increased production of collagen, elastin and blood vessels.
The results? Refreshed, rejuvenated skin with a reduction in fine lines & wrinkles and improved skin texture.
What’s involved in Platelet Rich Plasma?
The now-infamous photo of Kim shows her face covered in blood, and we understand if that was a confronting image to see. Please be assured that Coastal Goddess offer a less traumatic option!
A small amount of blood is taken from your arm by our Coastal Goddess practitioners, just like a standard blood test. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge, to separate the different components of your blood. The plasma that’s extracted is rich in the platelets required for the treatment.
Then, rather than rolling the platelet rich plasma into your skin with a dermal roller à la Kimmy K, we use fine needles to inject it into the deeper layers of your skin, making it far more effective and with considerably less downtime.
When will I notice results?
Platelet rich plasma is a gradual treatment, so results won’t be evident immediately. Your complexion will keep improving for several weeks after the treatment, as your skin is nourished by the new collagen & elastin.
We recommend three to four appointments, 1 month apart, for the best results.
