PRP (Vampire Facelift)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the latest anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation procedures available and has the power to trigger your body’s own tissue regeneration potential. PRP Rejuvenation Therapy is a naturally occurring component of your own blood. It encourages skin rejuvenation by stimulating the growth of your own collagen and improving blood supply to tissue and can greatly improve skin tone and texture whilst also reducing fine lines and wrinkles, all by stimulating your body’s own regeneration systems. PRP has been thoroughly investigated and regularly used as clinical tool for several types of medical treatments, including nerve injury, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, cardiac muscle injury, bone repair and regeneration, plastic surgery and oral surgery. PRP has also received attention in the popular media as a result of its use in treating sports injuries in professional athletes.
What does the process involve?
This innovative technique involves taking a minimal amount of the patient’s blood which goes through a specialised process to separate the red blood cells from the platelet plasma. (Platelet enriched plasma is the component of blood that carries the body’s natural healing powers and has been proved to be highly effective in healing skin wounds and burns). The plasma is then re-injected into the chosen area. It can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with astonishing results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom. It is highly successful in reducing crow’s feet and wrinkles around the lips, nose and mouth. The benefits of this treatment are multiple.
