Platlet Rich Plasma

-Vampire Facelift

What is it?

PRP works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers may slow and even reverse the ageing process. So patients, who wish to use their own body’s regenerative power, can do so without the concerns for infection or allergy, foreign material or surgical interventions.

How It Works

Platelets contain a high content of ‘growth factors’ which are proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin and revitalise the skin by improving blood supply and stimulating collagen formation, the results of which improves and increases in time. PRP skin rejuvenation is specifically designed for you – by you! A small amount of blood is taken and placed into a centrifuge machine and spun where the red blood cells are separated from the platelets and plasma.

The skin is cleansed and anaesthetic cream is applied to reduce discomfort. The concentrated platelet plasma is then injected into the skin where they release their growth factors to stimulate other cells around them plumping them and increasing in volume. Collagen production then occurs giving the skin a youthful appearance and improves the tone and texture of the skin. The whole process takes an hour and afterwards patient is advised to avoid physical activity and prolonged exposure to sunlight for 24hours.

When will I see results?

Improvement will be visible almost immediately and will improve in the following weeks. 2-3 treatments maybe required depending on the condition of the skin and age of the patient. PRP can be used in combination with other treatments such as Dermaroller, dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections and Thread lifts.
