Have you heard of the “Vampire Facial”? Here at Vissia, it’s not as scary as it sounds.
The plasma facial (aka PRP facial) procedure uses your body’s naturally occurring platelet-rich plasma (PRP) found in your blood as an anti-aging and skin rejuvenation agent. The treatment utilizes the plasma to create a fibrin matrix.
When administered via micro-needling, it stimulates your own body to produce naturally occurring collagen to smooth wrinkles and fill the areas where volume is needed, as well as rejuvenate the skin.
A small amount of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge where blood cells are separated from the plasma and platelets. PRP fluid has a higher concentration of platelets which is placed on the skin. A microneedling device is then used to drive PRP fluid deep into the layers of derms.
PRP promotes new collagen to form and regenerate tissue and blood vessels to reduce signs of aging.
This 100% natural procedure firms and tightens skin, enhances skin tone and texture, improves moisture retention, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

What should I do before PRP treatment?
In order to prepare for a successful PRP treatment, discontinue use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen, aspirin, or naproxen a week before your procedure. Arthritis medication should also be discontinued at least one week before receiving PRP. Patients should stop using corticosteroid medications for two to three weeks prior to treatment with PRP. Please check with your doctor before stopping any medication.
Is a PRP Facial safe?
PRP is completely safe! Platelet-rich-plasma is a product of your own body. PRP is administered to the body following microneedling or to the scalp via careful injection. These procedures are minimally-invasive and low-risk. There are no negative effects on your body from PRP.
