PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) facelift, also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ (as coined by Kim Kardashian), is a non-surgical procedure where a doctor injects the PRP substance, which includes parts of the patient’s own blood, into various areas of the patient’s face in order to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and give the patient a younger rejuvenated appearance. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) obtained from your blood contains growth factors which stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin.
