44 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Dr. Henry Mentz, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facials with microneedling at his Houston MedSpa. PRP facials are a treatment made popular by Dr. Runels the creator of the Vampire Facelift. 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.

Procedure Technique

The PRP injections and facial are performed by Dr. Mentz’s nurse injectors in his MedSpa located in the Galleria area of Houston. 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.

Recovery

Most patients will experience mild bruising or swelling for 1-2 days following the procedure. Some patients may see some visible improvements, but the full results of the PRP facial will be seen 2-3 months after the treatment.

PRP Facials FAQs

How Much Blood?

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.

Best Candidates?

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.

Surgical Facelift?

For those who would like a more effective and long-term rejuvenating option, a facelift, brow lift, or eye lift will more dramatically improve appearance by smoothing skin and lifting sagging facial features to give the face a more refreshed and youthful appearance. The PRP facial or Vampire Facelift improves the condition of the skin, but does not remove excess skin.
