Innovative skincare, more radiant skin, and great results can all be achieved with the unique PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, treatment. This nonsurgical skincare treatment is offered at Beautiful Faces by Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho. A patient’s blood is drawn and processed in a way where the platelets, proteins, and growth factors are separated out to be injected into the face. The components work to minimize lines and wrinkles, initiate collagen to produce firmer, suppler skin, and tighten and tone overall facial skin. Since the procedure utilizes the patient’s own blood, there’s little chance of side effects, only optimal outcomes.
PRP Treatment Reviews
"Absolutely amazing experience! Everyone is professional, caring, and very welcoming! - Incredibly awesome! Dr. Ho was more than comforting, reassuring and professional. I came to Dr. Ho with concerns primarily to talk to him about "wrinkles" on my chin area and underneath my eyes. I had received two other consultations and both doctors recommended surgical procedures. Dr. Ho immediately said that I did not need that and suggested C02 laser treatment on my entire face and PRP..."- S. / RealSelf / Apr 29, 2017

What to Expect
With the PRP procedure, the medical professional will draw a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood will then be put into a centrifuge where it will be spun around to separate out the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells. These concentrated components become the PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma that will be injected into the face. The in-office procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. The procedure is usually painless and no aftercare is needed. Patients should be able to resume normal activities immediately.
After PRP treatment, a patient might experience some redness, mild swelling, or bruising that usually subsides within 1 to 3 days. Since PRP treatment uses the patient’s own blood, there shouldn’t be any adverse effects. Patients should see visible results of diminished lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, tightened skin, and improved tone and texture within 3 – 4 weeks after treatment. The skin will continue to improve over time. For the best results, most patients need 3 treatments that are usually spaced out 1 – 2 months apart.
To enhance the results, some patients have the “Vampire Facelift” which adds microneedling to the procedure. Microneedling allows the PRP to reach further into the skin for maximum results.
