Platelet Enriched Plasma (PRP) Treatment
The "Vampire Facelift"
PRP skin treatments are a revolutionary way of rejuvenating your skin using the healing powers found in your own blood. As well as making your skin appear more youthful, it is an effective and natural way of treating a range of conditions including acne, scars and signs of ageing.
How does it work?
A sample of your blood will be taken and put through a preparation process which will separate the platelets from your red blood cells. Platelets play a vital role in healing, repairing and regenerating skin tissue as well as stimulating the production of collagen.
After a few minutes of careful preparation, our doctor will create a plasma from your blood sample with a very high concentration of platelets – around 7.4x the usual level. This will then be injected into your skin, leaving you with stunning results. PRP will leave your skin with a healthy, youthful glow, an even tone and a firmer, smoother texture.
PRP is especially effective for treating scars and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Is it safe?
Unlike skin treatments which involve chemicals, PRP is completely natural. As it uses healing ingredients from your own blood, there is no risk of having an adverse reaction. The procedure is quick and will be carried out by a doctor so you can relax and know you are in safe hands.
Although PRP has only recently become famous as a skin rejuvenation treatment, this medical procedure has been used for a long time to aid the healing of deep tissue after major surgery. This is not a fad treatment but a tried and tested way of helping your body to improve and replenish itself.
How long does it last?
Unlike many temporary treatments, PRP does not cover up the flaws, it actually heals your skin from within, therefore the results improve over time and the effects last longer than any chemical injectable. PRP treatments can be used as a regular part of your beauty routine to keep your skin looking and feeling great, but does not require regular visits as the results continue to be seen for many months.
