Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - improve the outside to show what’s inside
Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] therapy (otherwise known as Vampire facelift) is the process of isolating platelets (naturally occurring components of your blood that play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration) from the blood. The platelets are then concentrated to much higher levels than normal, through the process of centrifugation. The result is Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].
PRP encourages collagen formation and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as the Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth.

PRP is administered by our qualified aesthetic practitioners in our skin clinic, following strict guidelines.
The process, a favourite of the reality TV star Kim Kardashian, involves taking a small sample of your own blood. This sample is processed using a highly specialized, state- of- the- art centrifuge machine, specifically designed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] in a safe, clinical manner. It is then injected, or applied in combination therapies.
The procedure will take on average 30-45mins.
You must inform your clinician if you are taking medication, including blood thinning [anti-coagulant] medication, undergoing steroidal, or any long-term therapies.
Visible results may take 3-6 weeks. The results continue to improve over time, months and last approximately 1 – 2 years. Best results are attained through one to three consecutive treatments.
Results will depend upon a number of factors including your unique skin type, overall health status, age, dietary variations and whether or not you smoke, among others.
Each person is unique and the response to intradermal injections will vary, though adverse reactions are rare. Your clinician may use a topical anaesthesia before injecting the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP]. You may feel a ‘tingling’ sensation after the procedure and there may be redness, slight swelling and bruising. These symptoms will disappear. Please discuss this with your clinician.
