Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) or The Vampire Facial

PRP therapy is also known as ‘The Vampire Facelift’ and uses the body’s own healing mechanism to rejuvenate the skin. The treatment triggers collagen and elastin production, in turn plumping and revolumising the skin. The skin looks more youthful and has a silky feel, with results lasting upto 18-24 months.

PRP was historically used to treat skin ulcers, tendinitis and various other joint issues. The results were very promising which led to this being used in aesthetic treatments.

It involves taking small amount of blood from patient and spinning it at high speed in a machine (centrifuge) to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. This separated fraction of blood, rich in platelets and growth factors, plays an important part in the body’s healing mechanism. The above is then injected into the area of skin that needs to be treated using fine needles.
