What is Platelet  Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Dr. Vincent Nacouzi first trained as a chemist and then pursued Molecular biology research at UCLA. His interest in physiology led him to write several articles in neurotoxins and human chemical regulation. After his training in New York, he completed his residency in Emergency Medicine at LAC-USC. 


Dr. Nacouzi was a senior faculty at Wake Medical Center where he was awarded excellence as best Faculty Teacher of the year. He and his wife ran a successful Primary care and Urgent care in Raleigh for 12 years. He currently is completing a research project on an Oro-maxillary and Anesthesia device. His love for Medicine has kept him close to Raleigh and he was asked to consider an esthetic practice by one of his surgical colleagues. 


Dr. Nacouzi has worked in Raleigh NC over 20 years.  With his research experience in Molecular Biology at UCLA, Dr. Nacouzi was naturally driven to apply Stem Cell science to aesthetic medicine. He became the first accredited Physician in Raleigh NC, to perform PRP injection for the Vampire Face Lift.  Dr. Nacouzi is an expert injector who realizes the importance of each procedure and insists on  performing every injection himself. He is a member of IAPAM (International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine) and the American Cosmetic Cellular Medicine Association.


“ I will only do what I think is safe for my patients, they will get the best treatment, care, the best equipment and specialty products”, so they can look and feel their best. -Dr. Nacouzi

About Dr. Nacouzi



PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are separated from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP. This portion is rich in millions of growth factors that can work unopposed to stimulate your stem cells and rebuild the damaged areas of concern.

​The PRP, is now injected into specific areas of the skin, and promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles creating smoother skin texture and tone. The procedure is non-surgical, 100% safe and no down time at home.
