Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

As we age, our skin begins to change. For most, the aging process can bring on undesirable effects to facial skin, such as:

  • Dull or grayish looking skin colour
  • Less smooth skin texture
  • Loss of elasticity and volume
  • Appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging, droopy, and tired-looking skin

Platelet Rich Plasma injections can reduce the signs of aging by flooding the treated area with regeneration cells that immediately begin to revitalize tissues.

Platelet Rich Plasma injections are made of a serum containing your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth. The procedure improves skin complexion and texture.

The therapy is non-invasive, with no side effects or risk of allergic reaction.

What Are
PRP Injections?

Human blood is composed of red blood cells (93%), white blood cells (6%), and platelets and plasma (1%). Platelet rich plasma (or PRP), concentrates on separating that 1%, creating a concentrated serum of platelets. Although they are known for their coagulating properties (to stop bleeding), platelets also release growth factors that recruit reparative cells and, hence, revitalize and heal tissues. In other words, platelets are cells that help soft tissue to heal and grow new cells. For this reason, PRP injections have a long history of success in treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions.

In cosmetic medicine, PRP injections are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue; in order to obtain naturally smoother and tighter skin.

PRP Injections are highly effective for both men and women. Benefits include*:

  • No risks of allergic reaction
  • Minimal pain or discomfort
  • Safe, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
  • Minimal side effects

How Does the
PRP Skin Treatment Work?

Naturally Fresh and Youthful Skin

PRP is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves and restores healthy, radiant and youthful looking skin.

When PRP is inserted into the skin, the injection causes a small injury that activates the platelets and allows them to do what they do best: repair the tissue in that area. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are extremely above their normal concentration (which is what happens during the PRP treatment), it boosts the skin’s ability to rejuvenate.

Essentially, the PRP skin treatment encourages the body to use its own natural healing process in the areas that need more help.

PRP can also be applied through a microneedling procedure widely known as The Vampire Facial™.

Benefits of PRP Injections on Face

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) stimulates cell growth in the injected area. PRP aids the healing process in the face, without the use of chemicals or foreign substances. Described as the ultimate biological facelift, PRP injections on the face do not cause allergic reactions or infections, because the injected plasma comes from the patient’s own body.

PRP injection benefits include*:

  • Improved skin texture
  • Fresher tone
  • Increase in facial volume (plumpness)
  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • Reduced sagging of skin

Moreover, PRP injections improve* the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin complexion
  • Scars and other skin imperfections
  • Sun damage
  • Dark circles under the eyes


What to Expect

A simple, virtually painless procedure, conveniently done at our Montreal clinic.

When you will first arrive at your appointment, we will begin with a simple blood draw, just like a routine blood test. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets and plasma will be separated and concentrated into a serum that will be ready to be injected into the skin. We will then apply an anesthetic cream to the treatment area. Once the anesthetic cream takes effect, we will begin the treatment, which will consist in injecting the PRP serum into specific areas of the skin.

PRP injections are virtually painless and can treat most skin types, on face and body. The procedure is quick, lasting approximately 15 minutes. However, overall appointment duration will be about 1 hour for blood drawing and processing, as well as anesthetic cream application.

After the Treatment

Following the treatment, most people will experience heat, redness and mild to moderate swelling in the treated area. However, this will only last 1 to 2 days. Cold compresses will help reduce discomfort and swelling. Bruising can also occur and may last several days.

*Results may vary. Talk to our doctors to find-out if you are an appropriate candidate for this procedure.
