Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

shutterstock_143897611-300x195PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma but is often referred to as the Vampire facelift. Don’t let the name put you off- the Vampire Facelift is one of the safest and most effective non-invasive skin rejuvenating treatments around. It has been used in sports medicine to heal muscular injuries for over 20 years as well as dentistry.

This medical treatment involves taking a sample of your blood and separating it with a medical centrifuge. The platelet rich plasma (PRP), or the clear bit, contains growth factors and proteins which repair and regenerate tissue.

The PRP is injected back into wrinkles and deeper furrows, filling them out while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and new blood vessels. It improves skin texture, lines and wrinkles. Great for crepey areas especially under the eyes and neck. It is highly effective at improving sun damage or dull, worn-out looking skin too. It can help the skin to look plumper and healthier with reduced lines and a smoother texture, and the good news it will keep improving as your skin continues to make collagen and elastin.

As well as conventional PRP, we also can combine it with medical needling using the newest technology- the e-dermastamp. By combining these two powerful anti-ageing treatments together, we are enhancing the results of what is already a very powerful anti-ageing treatment.

Most exciting is the hair loss treatment we can now offer with PRP.
