Platelet Rich Plasma
“The human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentration of the body’s own regenerative power. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation that can be used safely anywhere on the body.” – Dr. Lisbeth Roy
The Power of Platelet-Rich Plasma
Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural stimulation of stem cells and a flood of growth factors to the treated area. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated platelets and bioactive proteins derived from the patient’s own blood. Once activated, platelets release growth factors that stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
PRP was initially used in wound healing, dentistry and in the treatment of sports injuries. Over the recent years, the use of PRP has evolved to address aesthetic concerns, hair regrowth and physiologic dysfunction causing sexual changes and impairment. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation that can be safely used throughout the body.
Doctors Studio uses the most current and advanced PRP processing methods and equipment. Dr. Roy is committed to evolving her regenerative practice to advance the use of PRP as common practice. StudioPRP.com is a group of medical providers who join Dr. Roy in the commitment to best patient outcomes when using PRP. Each one of the Studio PRP treatments for men or women providers use the Emcyte Pure PRP II system to process PRP.
How Does PRP Work?
A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw. PRP is processed in an FDA approved medical device that separates and harvests plasma, platelets, anti-inflammatory white blood cells and bioactive proteins. The process to create PRP takes under 10 minutes.
The PRP is collected in a syringe and is injected back into your tissues where it’s needed. The growth factors that are released upon injection stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face, scalp, sex organs, muscles and joints. It’s like turning back the cellular clock. What was old and damaged is repaired and made new; the essence of regenerative medicine.
The beauty of treatment with PRP is the use of your own body’s regenerative power. There is no risk of reaction or rejection since your body readily accepts the regenerative signal as its own. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and with very little discomfort and downtime.
Advantages of Using PRP
Platelet-rich plasma is autologous, meaning it comes from your body and given back to you. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, rejection or skin sensitivity. More than 60,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no side effects or complications reported.
PRP therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic issues, including:
- Wrinkled or sagging skin
- Frown lines, crow’s feet
- Erectile dysfunction
- Peyronie’s disease
- Urinary incontinence
- Sexual wellness
- Vaginal Dryness
- Pain with intercourse
- Lichen Sclerosis
- Hair Regrowth
- Joint and Muscle Pain
Procedures Harnessing The Power of PRP
The Vampire Facial is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the skin. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling device. The micro-needles create tiny punctures in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is added topically to stimulate new blood vessels, collagen, and elastin, thus accelerating and enhancing rejuvenation and regeneration. Adding PRP to the effective micro-needling procedure creates an unmistakable glowing skin.
The Vampire Facial is excellent for those suffering from Rosacea, acne, sensitive skin, scarring, sun damage or simply desire to maintain beautiful skin. The healing and anti-inflammatory effects of PRP work to correct skin problems and to strengthen the integrity of the skin to prevent future skin problems.
What can the Vampire Facial do for you?
Just a few short weeks after the Vampire Facial, newly formed collagen is growing and generating more and more healthy cells underneath the skin. That is when patients will begin to see improvement in the skin quality, color and texture.
Benefits of The Vampire Facial include:
- A fresher, more youthful natural appearance
- The skin develops a “younger” color because of new blood vessel formation.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother and healthier.
- Inflammation caused by acne and/or rosacea improves or resolves.
The Vampire Facelift is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Restylane®, Belotero® and Juvederm®; with Platelet Rich Plasma and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty that is as unique as you are.
How does the Vampire Facelift Work?
The initial injection of hyaluronic acid fillers is done skillfully to create a more youthful shape. Once the desired shape is accomplished, PRP is injected strategically to fuel the rejuvenation process. PRP ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger version of you, with improved skin quality, color and texture. With the Vampire Facelift, you can achieve a youthful and natural look without surgery and with minimal downtime.
What can the Vampire Facelift Do for You?
Each patient will experience a fresher, more youthful appearance artfully designed to meet your needs. Benefits of The Vampire Facelift include:
- The skin “glows” because of new blood vessel formation.
- New collagen forms in the dermis and lifts and refines the skin.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.
Unlike the Vampire Facial, fillers are used in the Vampire Facelift so patients will see the immediate volume effect and improved facial contour. During the following weeks new collagen forms, skin hydration improves and a noticeable change in your skin quality appears.
The Vampire FaceLift takes cosmetic rejuvenation to a higher level.
PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most useful and powerful natural treatments in aesthetics. Each of these procedures promises to turn back the hands of time. Using advanced techniques to isolate regenerating elements from the blood, then injecting them below wrinkles, folds and even acne scars, can rejuvenate the skin.
PRP is the 4th dimension of skin rejuvenation and artful aesthetics. We have professional skin care to nourish the skin, Botox® to relax wrinkles, dermal fillers such as Juvaderm® to restore lost volume and now Platelet Rich Plasma to actually regenerate the skin and a healthier youthful glow.

The Vampire Breast Lift combines the science of PRP to stimulate unipotent stem cells and the artful skill of a trained physician to deliver a custom-designed procedure that not only creates a more youthful contour and enhanced volume but also improves skin quality and restores nipple sensitivity.
How Does The Vampire Breast Lift Work?
First, volume is added in all the right places. Then, polishing and refining steps of the sculpting process are completed using platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger-looking breasts, improving skin quality, color, texture and sensitivity.
What can The Vampire Breast Lift Do For You?
Tired, worn or droopy are not the words you want to use to describe your breasts. As you age, however, the lively rosy hue observed in younger women of every skin color fades, classically turning to a dull shade of gray. The Vampire Breast Lift can change this:
- The skin color changes back to the youthful rosy hue by promoting underlying blood flow
- The shape becomes plump and full, increasing collagen and greater potential for development of muscle tissue
- The texture become smooth and soft
- Nipples become more sensitive, pert and fully colored
- Nipple sensitivity lost in breast augmentation can often be fully restored with one treatment.
