What is PRP?
PRP (Protein Rich Plasma) is also sometimes known as ‘the Vampire Facelift’.
It involves a small amount of your own blood being taken and using the extracted plasma and plasma cells containing platelets, growth factors and active proteins to inject back into your skin. These cells help repair damaged skin, which is why the treatments gives you a natural glow and rejuvenated, smoother, younger looking skin.
We use PRP on the face, neck and jaw line, but it can be used anywhere on the body.
- Improves the overall health and elasticity of the skin
- Reduces shallow lines and wrinkles
- Minimise the signs of aged and sun damage.
- Promotes a more even tone and texture.
Immediately after the treatment the injected area will feel tighter, but the more pronounced effect can be seen six weeks after the procedure and can last up to a year.
Best results if the treatment is repeated after a short interval to maximize the benefits.
It is important to know that the treatment doesn’t create plumping as if fillers have been used, but creates a more youthful skin.
Most reactions are usually minimal and temporary with very occasionally some mild bruising for a couple of days.
The treatment is very safe with minimal risk of complications as the material being injected is from the patients’ own blood.
We would advise no exercise for a period of 24hours after treatment.
Before your treatment any make up will be removed and the area to be treated, cleansed. We use topical anaesthetics to keep discomfort to a minimum during the procedure. A small volume of blood is taken in the same way as a standard blood test and this is separated using a centrifuge. This high concentration of the patients own platelets are then injected superficially into the skin. The treatment will last approximately 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.
The treatment benefits will last 12 – 18 months, but this can vary.
If you have never had the treatment before then three treatments : 1 every 4-6 weeks will give optimum results.
After treatment we will advise you comprehensively of the ‘dos and don’ts’, however we would advised not to wear make up that day, cleanse gently not rubbing the area and avoid saunas and facials for two weeks.
We will review you after three weeks, but if you are at concerned please do not hesitate to contact us.
This treatment can give you the benefit of a facelift without the surgery- call us to book your free consultation to assess whether this is the treatment for you.
