What It Is: Also known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or the Vampire Facelift, this creepy-sounding treatment involves removing a tube or two of your blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the growth factors, then re-injecting the serum back into the face for a dewy glow and more resilient skin.
Dr. Colbert says this treatment can be done on any part of the body, from the face, to the hands, to the neck. If you're feeling really fancy, you can also combine your PRP with laser for an even dewier visage. "I have developed a new procedure called LaserPRP in which we prep the skin with laser toning, then inject the PRP immediately afterwards," says Dr. Colbert. "The laser stimulates the collagen-producing fibroblast cells, which then are more receptive to the PRP injections. It's like a Trojan Horse, delivering growth factors deep into the skin." Colbert says he regularly does this treatment on VS models Candice Swanepoel, Adriana Lima, and Erin Heatherton, who all gush about it. Works for us.
Who It's For: Those looking to rejuvenate and brighten their skin. Also, anyone who dislikes the ideas of neurotoxins, silicone, or other harmful chemicals being injected directly into their bodies.
What To Expect: Most physicians recommend a course of treatment of one to three injections spaced out over a four to six week period. Side effects include a temporary discomfort at the injection site, plus some redness, itching, and bruising.
