Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, often referred to as the “Vampire Face Lift” PRP therapy works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers can slow and even reverse the ageing process, by placing growth factors (special proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin) in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.
In the treatment, a small amount of blood is taken from you and spun in a centrifuge, to harvest the platelet-rich plasma which is then re-injected into the desired area.
PRP therapy can be used all over the body to give skin a more youthful and radiant appearance but is most commonly used on the face – particularly around the eyes, mouth, and nose –on the backs of the hands, the décolletage, and even the knees. We also use it to stimulate hair growth PRP can be used to treat numerous cosmetic concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles or ‘crepey’ skin around the mouth and nose, crow’s feet around the eyes and mild drooping or sagging skin around the eyes or on the cheeks. PRP therapy can also be used to improve the appearance of dehydrated or mildly sagging skin on the backs of the hands, on the tops of the feet, elbows, and knees.
If you prefer a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation, PRP is a great option because not only are you getting the benefits of a smoother and brighter skin, but you are injected with only natural resources. There are no known side effects, and your body easily accommodates the filler because it’s made from your own blood.
