How Do Wrinkles Develop?
Over time, elastin and collagen production in human skin reduces, and it becomes harder and harder to maintain that tight, youthful skin. According to Medical News Today, wrinkles form from facial expressions, sun damage, smoking and dehydration.
It seems as though there are always new anti-aging serums, creams, oils, lotions, masks and treatments boasting that it can reverse aging. While some may help, their chemicals could leave you with potentially harmful side effects.

What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelets found within your blood contain hundreds of proteins, also known as growth factors. Platelet-rich plasma is a process where blood is drawn from a patient, platelets are separated, increased in concentration and combined with the remaining blood for treatment. The resulted plasma has 5-10 times more platelets than usual which supports cell growth and helps rapidly heal the body’s tissues. Skin included.
How Does PRP Help Your Skin Undo Aging?
PRP facials, also known as “vampire facials,” incorporate the safe, revolutionary practice of micro-needling. Micro-needling stimulates the body’s natural healing process of elastin and collagen. One of the best benefits of platelet-rich plasma for wrinkles is that PRP is autologous. This means that since it comes from your body, it reduces the risk of infection, compared to other drugs (Botox [botulism toxin], for instance). While dermatologists have recently started using platelet-rich plasma for wrinkles, this medical procedure has been used to heal joints for years. Watch a video about this extraordinary process.
