About Vampire PRP Treatments
What are Vampire PRP Treatments ?
PRP is the acronym used to describe “Platelet Rich Plasma.” PRP is the concentrated amount of platelets (components found in whole blood), which have been centrifuged/separated from the red blood cells. PRP platelets comprise at least four times the concentrated amounts found in whole blood.
Medical professionals initially started using PRP to help heal wounds and injuries. It is also used in the dental field for treatment. PRP procedures have now evolved as treatment protocols in the field of aesthetics. They are now one of the most widely used natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation. PRP treatments can produce very positive effects in a variety of health and cosmetic issues, such as:
- Frown Lines
- Volume Loss
- Stress Incontinence
- Vaginal Rejuvenation
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Hair Loss
- Hand Rejuvenation
What Is the Vampire PRP Treatment?
Dr. Charles Runels pioneered the “Vampire” treatment popular in the aesthetics world. It is now one of the most widely used natural treatments utilizing PRP for cellular rejuvenation.
How Does It Work?
A PRP treatment first involves a simple blood draw of about 60-120cc. The centrifuge processor then separates the plasma and platelets over a 20-minute time period for each 60cc of blood. During this time period, about 15 minutes is spent prepping the skin/area. Next, the PRP is collected in syringes and injected into the targeted tissue areas. Areas commonly treated are the face, scalp, and sex organs. Rich in bioactive proteins and growth factors, PRP stimulates stem cells to repair and create new, youthful tissue. It’s like rewinding the clock—regenerative medicine at its best.
Benefits of PRP Procedures
Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, skin irritation, or rejection. More than 60,000 PRP procedures have been administered to various parts of patients’ bodies and have resulted in no side effects or complications. The human body has an incredible ability to self-heal. The natural production of stem cells is what regenerates new tissue.

About Our System
Not all PRP is the same. We are able to customize the PRP in Scottsdale, to the patient with concentration levels of 7.2 percent or higher. Most PRP systems cannot reach the minimum platelet concentration level of 4x. To get the full benefits from PRP, this concentration level must be reached. The centrifuge system that we use is FDA approved and has been proven to have consistent 4-7x concentrations. It is also a closed system, which decreases the risk of contamination.
