What are Plasma Facials?
Javan’s wide range of cutting-edge aesthetic treatments include plasma therapies, (also known as PRP Treatment, “Blood Facials,” or “Vampire Facials). These procedures are a safe and effective treatment traditionally used for a variety of sports injuries as well as cosmetic treatments due to the replenishing nature of plasma. The greatest benefit of plasma is the healing properties and ability to reduce inflammation Plasma treatments involve drawing the patients blood, then centrifuging it to separate the platelets from the other blood components. What remains is the plasma that has a concentration of 5 to 10 times more than untreated blood, with growth factor proteins. Plasma can be injected to treat multiple issues such as, scaring, facial resurfacing, hair loss, joint pain and athletic injuries. The cosmetic variant is incredibly popular and one of the most requested facial procedures for celebrities, known as the Plasma Facial, “Blood Facial” or “Vampire Facial.” While the name may sound strange, it’s important to remember that we are simply utilizing our bodies’ natural resources to repair itself.
How do Plasma Facials Work?
Once a client’s blood has been drawn and processed, the Plasma is applied to the skin topically using a microneedling pen, which helps the Plasma penetrate deep into the skin. Microneedling is considered a collagen induction therapy and yields numerous benefits when used in conjunction with Plasma. The growth factors from platelets supercharge tissue recovery and healing because both therapies combined are regenerative. Plasma coupled with microneedling may produce long-lasting results and has even greater benefits when performed multiple times.

Are Plasma Facials safe?
Because PRP/plasma treatments involve the use of ones own platelets naturally produced within their blood, most people do not experience any side effects or adverse reactions. Plasma therapy itself carries minimal risk, however some irritation, pain, or bleeding may occur near the injection site. Typical complications from injections, such as infection, and or tissue damage, are no different than with other injection procedures. Risk of allergic reaction is minimal, because ones own plasma is being used.
