PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy | The Vampire Facial
PRP is a fast, injections treatment that can hide age spots, minimize acne scars, and make your skin appear silky smooth. You can say goodbye to many signs of aging and damaged skin.
PRP (platelet rich plasma) is an innovative medical advancement that is used across many fields of medicine, and is rapidly increasing in popularity with medical aesthetics thanks to its incredible cosmetic benefits. Nicknamed the vampire facial, it involves withdrawing your own blood and spinning the vial in a device called a centrifuge at high speed to separate a patient's platelets or “liquid gold” as it's often called from the rest of the blood. This is then injected into the skin through a variety of techniques for a myriad of benefits.
With no additives or preservatives, this “liquid gold” is completely natural, and comes from within your own body. The results cannot be understated. Growth factors (or proteins) from PRP are able to stimulate new collagen production which will tighten the skin, and promote a healthy, youthful, and glowing complexion. It is an effective solution for some patients to relieve dark circles under the eyes in a natural way, so that you can get back to lighting up the room!
PRP for Hair Loss
Thanks to the many benefits of PRP, the treatment is being widely adopted in numerous fields of medicine including dentistry, sports recovery therapy, arthritis and joint treatments and many others. Our doctors and nurses are also highly experienced with PRP injections for the scalp to recover from hair loss! The treatment has offered incredible results for many of our patients, and you can learn more on our PRP Hair Revitalisation page.
PRPs most lauded effect is that the results last for such a long time. The build up of new collagen is gradual, which means that you can anticipate continued overall improvements to your skin for months!
PRP can be injected on its own (pure PRP) through a variety of techniques and we prefer to deliver it with our Mesotherapy microneedling device to maximize treatment benefits.
Combining PRP with Skin Boosting
PRP can also be combined with Mesotherapy Skin Boosting (PRP+) for added and immediate benefits. Combining the two treatments offers our patients one of the most incredible anti-aging and skin-restorative treatments available on the market today.
Despite the appearance of some blood during injection, PRP has minimal to no pain, thanks to new technologies at the injection site and needles tip system. Numbing cream is applied to the face prior to treatment, and laughing gas is also available for patient's with very low pain tolerances.
Expect about 45 to 60 minutes total for the facial treatment, and very mild downtime (ranging from 2 - 5 days) when combined with microneedling as the skin can appear pinkish or slightly red and sensitive immediately after the the microinjections. These concerns will resolve quickly for most patients, with many resuming work and normal activities after 48 hours.
