As we age, noticeable changes occur in our skin, including wrinkles and facial lines. If you want to address these concerns without surgery, the vampire facial or PRP facial could be a solution.

What to Expect

The first thing we’ll do in the consultation is talk about your goal weight and where you are, to understand if New West is right for you.

Before Treatment

Inform your doctor about your current medications, as some can affect platelet function and reduce treatment effectiveness.

Cease medications like aspirin or anti-inflammatories a week prior, as advised by doctors. Avoid blood-thinning herbs/supplements.

Prior to the session, have a nourishing meal, hydrate well, and follow these guidelines closely.

During Treatment

PRP injections are brief outpatient procedures conducted in a doctor’s office, usually taking less than an hour. The area will be numbed for your comfort during the injection, often aided by ultrasound for precise needle placement. Generally, PRP therapy involves three sessions spread across three to six weeks.

After Treatment

Avoid any physical activities that put pressure on the injected area.

Ice the injection site for 20 minutes every two to three hours.

Don’t use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs while recovering since it may lessen the effect of PRP.
