Dr David Yew and Aesthetics Hawaii are pleased to offer the latest advances in aesthetics using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for facial rejuvenation. Known also as the “Vampire Facial” or “PRP Blood facial” – PRP combined with microneedling and/or injection is a safe, non-surgical procedure that rejuvenates aging skin by restoring skin tone, texture and volume. The process involves drawing blood with a butterfly needle and and isolating the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) using a centrifuge. The serum is then injected back into the skin and uses your own platelets and growth factors to trigger new collagen production that results in tighter, smoother and younger-looking skin with less downtime and faster healing.
After extensive research and collaboration with the world’s most experienced injectors in Korea and the US – Dr Yew has taken PRP injectables to the next level in aesthetics. Combining PRP with Sculptra® (PlasmaSculpt), PRP with hyaluronic acid fillers (PlasmaFill) and PRP with microneedling (Vampire or Blood Facial) – Dr Yew used these treatments on himself to see if there was a clinically significant improvement. In the photos below – Dr Yew treated only on the right half of his face with PRP so that he could compare the results with the other side which received only microneedling. The PRP side had more dramatic effects in pigment reduction, quicker recovery and better skin texture. The 2nd photo was the day after treatment. The 3rd photo was Day #3.
