Lots of people look at their favorite celebrity and think, ‘She must be a lady of a certain age. How does she keep looking so good?’ The celebrity no doubt has her secrets, but many celebrities avail themselves of certain treatments that keep them looking young and vital and keep those frown lines and crow’s feet at bay.

PRP Facelift

This procedure has the unfortunate alternate name of “vampire facelift.” It uses the client’s own blood to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and scars and make the skin more supple. During PRP treatment, the dermatologist takes a vial of blood from the patient and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma and other blood components. This results in PRP having many times more platelets than are usually found in the patient’s blood. Platelets are used because they are crucial in wound healing and are abundant in growth factors. When injected into the skin, PRP stimulates the body to produce springy collagen, which keeps the skin youthful and plumps out scars and dry areas.
