Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
The rejuvenating and highly requested “Vampire Facial”
About the Treatment
The body naturally has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-Rich PlasmaTherapy is a form of regenerative medicine and harnesses this ability and amplifies the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue.
PRP Injection Therapy also works to preserve and thicken hair in patients who are genetically predisposed to hair loss. As a non-surgical solution, the PRP injection procedure is a short 90-minute visit with limited downtime.
How it Works
Platelets rejuvenate skin and are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.

Are PRP Injections Painful?
Some mild discomfort may be felt while the PRP is being reinjected. The sensation is typically a burning or tingling sensation, which only lasts a few minutes after the PRP is injected. We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRP treatment and apply topical numbing cream and ice to aid any discomfort.
When will I start to see results from a PRP Treatment?
Generally, patients notice tightening and a more even tone to their skin in a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to build for up to 6 months after treatment.
Are there any side effects or risks?
PRP is a safe aesthetic procedure for most individuals. The most common side effects associated with PRP injections is mild to moderate swelling and redness.
I have been a customer for over 5 years and truly would not trust anyone else. Dr Boulos really cares about her customers long term goals and will go out of her way to educate her customers on the treatments they are receiving so you understand the full process.
I have referred her to many friends and family who are also repeat customers and are blown away by her professionalism and experience.
Dr. Boulos is truly one of a kind. As a physician it goes without saying that she is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, but her most endearing quality is the warm personal connection she makes with each & every patient she sees. She takes the time to advise on all things health & beauty related.
From the effects of internal inflammatory issues related to skin health all the way to superficial aesthetics, she guides her patients from start to finish. I have seen her starring at patient before and after pictures, constantly evaluating and analyzing how she can improve the results, because she constantly strives to be better. Her spa is a reflection of her personality, elegant warm & welcoming!

I went to Dr. Boulos with the intention to get botox. After having the most honest conversation, she recommended how important it was that I treat the cystic acne I did not know I had. I was almost in tears in her office and was fearful I would develop scaring on my face.
Thankfully, she immediately had a plan for me to complete acid peel facials and sent me home with some skin care products. No word of a lie, within a week I was able to see results in my skin with the products she gave me. If you're struggling with your skin and want to see someone who is going to be honest and provide you with the best, you need to go see her. I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am that I decided to go to her!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a year or so now. From the very beginning she and all the staff have always been extremely professional and welcoming. I love the products, facials and skin treatments offered.
She alway answers my questions and makes me feel like she genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend this medical spa, you will be in good hands.
Such a beautiful and clean spa! I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a few years now for Botox, fillers, and facials. I’ll admit I’m not the best with the needles but she makes me feel so comfortable and puts up with my craziness.
She is very knowledgeable and makes the best decisions for you with no pressure to do anything right away. Her staff is also very accommodating and kind, they are wonderful at what they do.
