Often referred to the ‘Vampire facial’, PRP treatment (Platelet-Rich Plasma) uses the patient’s own blood for three main scientifically-proven benefits:
- Facial rejuvenation
- Promoting hair growth
This innovative treatment loved by celebrities harnesses the body’s own healing powers to stimulate tissue growth, resulting in a healthy, younger appearance. Platelets are the part of your blood which help with the healing and regeneration of its tissues. A small amount of the patient’s own blood is taken and the plasma is then separated out from the rest of the blood to create the platelet-rich plasma. PRP is a concentration of platelets that are then injected into the problem area.
For facial rejuvenation, PRP treatment aids the production of both collagen and elastin improving the texture and quality of the skin. It helps plump the skin as well as softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines and is used for full facial rejuvenation. Most used around the eyes, mouth and nose, it can also reduce the signs of ageing anywhere on the body, helping to improve skin thickness and elasticity.
PRP is also an effective non-surgical treatment for hair loss, an alternative to a transplant. PRP helps to reduce and protect hair loss by injecting platelets from a small blood sample to the targeted area of the scalp. The blood cells then stimulate growth and increases hair density.
PRP treatment offers both natural and comfortable results.
PRP is also regularly used to treat injuries. When injected into damaged tissues, PRP stimulates your body to grow healthy new cells, promoting healing. Many professional athletes use PRP treatment to recover after injury.
