Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, also known as “Vampire facelift”, is the latest natural approach in anti-ageing facial and body rejuvenation, using the patient’s own blood cells. It has become a highly sought-after non-surgical procedure for facial and skin rejuvenation. PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, skin wound healing, hair restoration and facial rejuvenation.
The procedure involves a small amount of blood being drawn from the patient and placed into sterile tube that is then centrifuged to separate the red blood cells from the Plasma- a golden yellow liquid known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). The PRP is then injected into the deep dermis or fat layer of the skin using very small needles, (similar to those used in Botox injections). The various proteins and growth factors in the PRP promote collagen growth and cell renewal and repair, thus improve skin texture, colour and tone, resulting in a naturally healthier younger looking appearance. Depending on the area treated, the procedure takes between 45-90 minutes.
PRP can be injected anywhere on face and body.
PRP can also be used very effectively in hair restoration.
