The Celebrity Skin Treatment that requires Your Own Blood!

The Celebrity Skin Treatment that requires Your Own Blood!

Have You heard of this Celebrity Skin Treatment?

It’s all about the Blood Facial. Yes, You heard right. One of the top talked about Skin Treatments in Hollywood that requires no downtime and is sure to plump, tighten and give you that glow is still the PRP Facial, otherwise referred to as the Blood Facial or Microneedling with PRP. In some cases even the PRP Facial is called for, but the PRP Facial may cause bruising and requires celebrities to hide out for a few days. Ok, so you are confused, let us enlighten you about what this Top Celebrity Skin Treatment is and the differences between the Facial and the Facelift and why you should consider the Microneedling with PRP or Facelift.

The Microneedling with PRP requires a simple blood draw and the separation of the patient’s own platelets with the help of a machine called a centrifuge. In non-medical simple terms, Platelet Rich Plasma is found in your own blood and contains  important growth factors that stimulate collagen production and aid in healing. Collagen production is essential in skin rejuvenation and a needed component in Anti-Aging. In the case of the Microneedling with PRP the Blood Platelets are re-introduced to the body via Micro-needling. How? When a patient gets a Micro-Needling Treatment the tiny needles that penetrate the skin of the face cause micro-damage which stimulate elastin fibers and increases collagen production. While the treatment takes place, the Platelet Rich Plasma is applied topically and seeps into the tiny Micro-Holes to speed up the healing process and enhance the results of the Micro-Needling treatment.  The latest treatment that incorporates Radio-Frequency and Micro-Needling is called VivaceRF and is ideally combined with the PRP (Microneedling with PRP).

In the case of a PRP Facial the Facial may still take please via Micro-Needling, but is then combined with injections that include the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), and also injections of HA Fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm Products into the area of need. Older women and men can greatly benefit of this combination treatment. There is a big confusion on the term Microneedling with PRP and PRP Facial in the non-medical environment and many just repeat the TMZ version of this treatment, versus digging deeper and realizing the effectiveness and also the nature of this treatment and why it actually works.

Clearing up the confusion: The PRP Facial and what makes it different from the Microneedling with PRP!

In the case of the PRP Facial the Platelet Rich Plasma injections have to be performed by a Medical Doctor, Nurse Practitioner and in some states by an RN. The injections are often  performed in the area below the eyes where the hollows show the signs of aging, also in the lower face (jowls) and most commonly the nasolabial folds. (Smile Lines). Anywhere the patient shows signs of aging and/or scarring the PRP can be injected without side-effects, as it absorbs back into the body and is accepted without reaction.

The HA fillers are also injected in the areas of need,  but caution is applied because HA fillers do come with a strict protocol as it relates to the injection sites. This protocol is dictated by the maker of the product and the big players are Galderma and Allergan. The molecule size and cross linking technology in various fillers will determine where in the face the HA Filler can be injected. The need of injections and the area  can vary in men and women and also depends on genetics and age.

Does the PRP Facial cause bruising?


The PRP Facial often causes slight bruising and swelling for a few days. The Microneedling with PRP on the other hand will give you a slight sunburned feeling for a day or two but will have you stage ready within 24 hours. The temporary edema (swelling) of the Microneedling with PRP is often loved by thin stars because it causes the skin to plump and the increased volume hides fine lines and wrinkles. So it is not uncommon for celebrities to commit to the Microneedling with PRP  a few days prior to a big performance.

The Microneedling with PRP/ Facelift Explained By Kim K in 2013 

Remember you don’t want to do this without numbing. This Top Celebrity Skin Treatment requires numbing cream and Kim had just found out she was pregnant, so she did not want numbing applied to her skin. Also, remember unless this treatment includes injections of PRP, or HA Fillers it is really called a Microneedling with PRP not a PRP Facial. If you are young and have good skin, a Microneedling with PRP is often enough and the additional injections may not be needed.

Who made this a Top Celebrity Skin Treatment and why it became FAMOUS?

KIM K allowed the filming of her Microneedling with PRP in 2013 ( It was often called a PRP Facial) AND made the procedure go Viral. Though she claimed it to be the most painful treatment, it would not have been if she ONLY opted for numbing cream.

When did other Celebrities get introduced to the Microneedling with PRP and the PRP Facial?

The PRP Facial became a Top Celebrity Skin Treatment  in 2014-2015 when a free PRP Facial and then the Vampire Breast Lift was enclosed in the Oscar Gift bags
