Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facial
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, widely referred to as the vampire facelift or vampire facials, is a natural, non-surgical procedure, used to reduce the signs of ageing, brighten the face and make patients look more youthful and hydrated. The use of a patient’s own blood is where the nicknames Dracula or vampire facelift come from.
PRP facials involve taking platelets from a patient’s own blood and injecting them back into the skin, in the areas where the patient wishes for rejuvenation to take place. These platelets are found naturally in the patient’s own blood and are used for topical cell regeneration, by taking advantage of their natural healing properties, in order to help restore the youthfulness and radiance that is lost as a result of the aging process.
Using no artificial materials at all, and instead making use of the body’s own natural components, the PRP facelift has quickly taken the cosmetic industry by storm, providing a non-invasive, quick and natural way to make patients feel younger for longer.
This revolutionary modern procedure is carried out by extracting a small amount of blood from the patient and placing it into a centrifuge, which spins the blood and separates it into three parts. Here, the platelet plasma will be harvested. Platelet plasma is desirable, since it is a component typically used to help treat skin injuries and burns. This component is then injected back into the patient’s skin, where it will rejuvenate, brighten and help reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Once the platelets are injected into the patient’s skin, they will work to release their growth factors, which are proteins found within the platelets. These growth factors play an essential part in helping to heal damaged or diminishing tissue. They stimulate the other cells surrounding the area injected into, helping to plump them up and increase in volume and improve the complexion and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
