Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Facial

What is a PRP Facial, aka Vampire Facial?

Micro-needling combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a first-class treatment that has many phenomenal benefits. Together, they assist your skin to help it look even better than it ever has before. The wonderful thing about these procedures is that they are all natural. PRP for instance, comes from your blood and helps induce growth and puts growth factors back into you.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) based cosmetic treatments have received an enormous level of media attention as of late. PRP facials are a treatment made popular by Dr. Runels, the creator of the Vampire Facelift. PRP treatments have become recognized for their power to completely restore the face; resulting in firmer and younger looking skin. 

PRP facials use your blood’s own platelets to reverse signs of aging by giving youthful fullness to the face and improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Blood platelets are our body’s super hero cells because they contain growth factors and bioactive proteins that help to heal damages ligaments, tissue, tendons, muscle and bone. By concentrating the platelets and reinjecting the PRP into the skin after microneedling, the benefits of the PRP reach deeper into the skin for an improved appearance, including fewer lines and wrinkles.

How does the PRP Facial work?

The PRP facial uses about 2 tablespoons of blood that is drawn before the procedure. The blood will be spun in a centrifuge for about 15 minutes to separate the blood components and concentrate the platelets. Since the PRP facial uses the patient’s own blood, there are very rarely adverse effects from the treatments, but anyone who is undergoing treatment for cancer, blood disease, and other conditions may not be a candidate for the PRP facial. 1-2 weeks before the procedure, patients should avoid smoking and alcohol, as well as anti-inflammatory drugs like Aspirin or Ibuprofen.


At Believe Aesthetics, the PRP injections and PRP facial are performed by professional nurse injectors in San Antonio. The treatment takes about 1-2 hours depending on the patient. By injecting a patient’s own concentrated blood platelets back into the face, they are getting an extra dose of these healing properties to combat the effects of aging on the skin and underlying tissue.

Some patients may see some visible improvements immediately, but the full results of the PRP facial will be seen 2-3 months after the treatment.  Microneedling with or without PRP is an effective and affordable treatment to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. It is a safe procedure that provides visible results for patients with no downtime.
