At Total Aesthetics, we're at the forefront of other cutting-edge roles for PRP injections, including PRP Breast Enhancement (also known as PRP breast augmentation and Vampire Breast Lift) and the use of PRP for enhancement of sexual function.

At Total Aesthetics in Westport PRP injections are offered as a stand-alone treatment for facial aging, colloquially called a "Vampire Facial", and also to enhance the results of laser skin rejuvenation – including our own unique PRP LaserPeel. (We also use Platelet-Rich Plasma for stimulation of hair growth.)

Safely and easily obtained from your own blood, then processed in an entirely closed system, the platelets are concentrated and their growth factors are utilized to enhance the healing process, and most importantly, build collagen. The potential applications for this natural type of collagen induction therapy are nearly limitless.

Why should I chooseTotal Aesthetics for PRP injections?

  • Total Aesthetics is a nationally accredited surgical facility that maintains the highest levels of safety and sterility.
  • Each patient’s facial aesthetics are carefully evaluated and a customized treatment plan is formulated utilizing the latest technology and techniques.
  • At Total Aesthetics we strive to deliver the best results with all the varying uses of PRP injections Westport has to offer.
  • Total Aesthetics was an early adapter of microneedling technology, which, along with fractional laser treatment, is sometimes combined during treatment with PRP injections for an enhanced result.
  • Because the number and concentration of platelets is extremely critical, we use the next generation PRP - the FDA approved Selphyl Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM). Selphyl suspends the ultrapure platelets in an all-natural scaffold, to produce a controlled and sustained release of platelet-derived growth factors. Because Selphyl is a closed system, sterility is maintained and no contaminants can enter the PRP.
  • Some PRP preparations that claim to have high platelet concentrations do so at the expense of inflammatory red and white blood cells, that can produce the opposite of the desired effect. Preparation with Selphyl minimizes the amount of undesired RBCs and WBCs in the PRP, and its golden color has earned it the name “liquid gold.”
  • We use AccuVein technology to minimize bruising and discomfort during the blood draw.

Concerns with PRP


PRP is extracted and injected without surgery and should not leave any visible scars - in fact, the injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma can be used to treat pre-existing scars.


When considering the cost of PRP injections Westport patients can expect the cost to be less than $1,000 per treatment. Dr. O’Connell will discuss the cost of your procedure with you during your consultation.


After your treatment, you may temporarily have a red, flushed look, with occasional spotting in the treated areas. By the next day, you will likely feel ready to return to your normal life. Because PRP injections are made from your own cells, and processed in an entirely closed system, the risk of side effects is low. Any mild swelling, redness, or bruising usually fades within a few days.


Because we use AccuVein technology during the blood draw, discomfort and bruising are minimized. Patients may experience slight tenderness and minor bruising, but discomfort is minimal.

The first step towards a new, beautiful you is to schedule a personal consultation.

Along with providing the highest level of care, no effort is spared to create an environment where each patient is nurtured and cared for as an individual. Use our form to contact Dr. O’Connell with questions about any of our aesthetic or plastic surgery procedures.
