PRP for Skin
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) rejuvenation treatment, also known as Vampire Facial is a treatment to reverse the common ageing signs in the skin specifically the face, neck, hands. It stimulates collagen production with the infusion of your own platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) or ‘liquid gold’ via a fractional micro-needling pen device. It rejuvenates your skin in a natural way with minimal downtime leading to a supple, firmer and younger looking skin.
- Improves tone texture and brightness of skin
- Sun damage, acne scars, dark circles and hyperpigmentation is also improved.
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Adds volume
- Minimizes scarring or stretch marks
A blood sample is obtained from the patient. The blood is spun at a very rapid rate in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the other components of the blood. The resulting natural, yellow serum contains 8 potent growth factors that are then deposited back into the dermal layer of the skin following the use of a micro-needling device.
Areas that can be treated
PRP rejuvenation can be done on the face, neck, chest or hands. It is safe on all skin types.
12 – 24 hours, mild bruising or redness may be experienced. There is almost no risk of an allergic reaction as the PRP is produced from the patient’s own blood and is completely natural.
30 – 60 minutes
Number of sessions
3 – 5 treatments, over a period of 4 to 6 week is advised for optimal results.
Longevity of results
6 months to 2 years, depending on the age and overall health and condition of the skin. The skin will continue to improve with time. However as we age, to maintain the result, touch up treatments are recommended.
*Results may vary from patient to patient.
