Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma, otherwise known as the “vampire facial”, is a treatment that uses the body’s own natural healing properties to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines and scarring. A small amount of blood is taken from you and spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and the plasma. The platelets are then injected back into the skin by a micro-needling technique. Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. When the PRP is injected into the skin it acts as a matrix to stimulate collagen and elastin production which will smooth and tighten the skin. Areas we can treat with PRP include:
The treatment takes approximately 30-45 minutes and topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment. Swelling, slight bruising and pain are all normal 2-3 days post procedure. Results can be seen for between 1-2 months and often a second treatment is required at 4-6 weeks.
