Platelet Rich Plasma, known as PRP, is being used as a skin rejuvenation procedure. Often sensationally referred to as a vampire lift, patients are left wondering if this relatively new procedure actually works, or is it just celebrity hype? This week your show host & Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes once again Dr Charles Crutchfield, board certified dermatologist from Minneapolis and a renowned authority on using PRP for skin and facial rejuvenation. Dr Crutchfield discusses with Dr Lycka how the process works, and the excellent results and durability that are achieved with this technique, particularly in improving the tone, lustre and texture of the treated skin. They also discuss the very latest and exciting ways in which this technique can be combined with existing anti-aging treatments and how it is also being used in other areas of cosmetic medicine, and scar treatment. Ignore the vampire, look past the hype, and learn the true benefits of PRP.
