Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP therapy is a technique using your very own growth factors, re-targeting them to a specific area of concern where they encourage repair and regeneration.
Using your own growth factors improves dull facial skin, eases dark circles around the eyes, and makes scars and fine wrinkles less visible, all without injectable fillers or invasive laser treatments.
However, while PRP is beneficial, it is important to know that not all PRP products are the same. Their specific healing properties and overall effectiveness can vary greatly, as can the equipment and processes used to create PRP gel. You can rely on us to use the best products and technology.
PRP treatment can help with scars and stretch marks. It delivers long-lasting effects with little chance of allergic reaction, simply because the platelets come from the patient’s own blood. This is a highly effective treatment for rejuvenating the skin and reducing signs of skin damage like stretch marks and scars.
The Vampire Facelift is ideal for both men and women who are seeing the first signs of ageing, who would like to reduce the appearance of fine lines and achieve skin revitalisation.
PRP involves extracting platelets from a small blood sample, the first stage. Next, we put the sample into a centrifuge and spin it to separate the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. Then, with a very fine needle, we inject the gel into the face, where it encourages the surrounding cells to proliferate and grow. This stimulates repair, increases skin volume and revitalises it. We can give you multiple injections multiple times in multiple locations to provide the improvement you’re looking for.
Because this facelift uses your own natural platelets, your body won’t reject the treatment. We spin the blood in a closed system so there’s also no chance of contamination that way. In fact this is such a safe procedure it’s used in many of the nation’s best-respected teaching hospitals to treat burns and encourage faster wound repair.
There are few side effects associated with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy. You will probably get mild bruising and swelling at the injection sites, plus some tenderness, but all this should disappear within a few days.
