PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) also known as the Vampire Facelift, is a cosmetic treatment that’s been used for about a decade with fabulous results. It’s a scientific discovery that recruits your body’s natural agents, to rejuvenate your face and make you look years younger.
If you don’t feel the need to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to improve the look of your skin, then the Vampire Facelift might be the solution you are looking for. When you notice your skin has become less smooth due to ageing, or your skin is looking tired, it might be time to consider a solution. The PRP treatment can give your skin back its youthful texture, glow and rosy colour.
The Vampire Facelift is an innovative treatment that uses the ingredients of your blood to rejuvenate tired, ageing skin, along with any fine lines and wrinkles. The unique ingredients of your blood are your platelets, and they’re converted to platelet rich plasma by the Vampire Facelift technique.
For the Vampire Facelift treatment, the practitioner takes 10 to 20 ml of blood, the same amount as a standard blood test, and this is then spun to separate blood platelets from the rest of the blood. Once these platelets have been withdrawn from the blood sample, they get injected carefully into the face and this stimulates new collagen formation, and will result in rejuvenating your skin.
PRP is unique as there is:
- No risk of allergy or rejection as it’s your own blood.
- No animal materials involved.
- Minimal discomfort.
- Quick procedure, from start to finish of treatment is around one hour.
A topical anaesthetic gets applied before the treatment, making the injections relatively painless. The practitioner uses very fine needles to inject small amounts of PRP into your skin, and usually, 3 treatments, spread 4 weeks apart are enough. The results can last up to 18 months and it’s recommended that a touch up treatment gets repeated around this time. The beauty of this treatment is that you are using your own blood, so it’s completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
It’s also an ideal for enhancing the skin texture of the:
- Eye area
- Acne scarring
PRP is a stand-alone or add-on treatment to the many other cosmetic treatments. It gives good results for treatment of crepiness and wrinkling of the upper and lower eyelids. Vampire Facelift treatments provides subtle improvements in wrinkle reduction, improves the skin texture and appearance, and dramatically reduces open pores in the skin.
