What is a PRP / vampire facial?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma that contains approximately 3 to 5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. PRP Therapy (also known as vampire facial) is a powerful, natural method of skin rejuvenation that uses your body’s own natural resources to improve the tone and texture of your skin, as well as to promote healing and hair growth on the scalp. This treatment involves using a sample of the patient’s own blood, separating the cells and plasma, before injecting the plasma back into the relevant areas. The benefits of this revolutionary new treatment are impressive and it is being hailed as one of the biggest advances in anti-ageing treatments.
How does it rejuvenate the skin?
The body cells which aid the tissue in healing and producing new cells are called Platelets. PRP is injected into targeted areas of the skin and then forms an environment that helps grow collagen, regenerates the tissues and makes your skin smooth and tight. In addition, PRP softens wrinkles and creates skin texture and tone that is smoother, younger and better.

What can I expect from the procedure?
A few short weeks after the procedure, the newly formed collagen is growing and generating more and more healthy cells underneath the skin. That is when you will begin to see improvement in skin quality, colour and texture.
How to get the ultimate benefit of PRP treatment?
It is recommended to combine several methods of treatment to enhance the benefits of PRP and achieve optimum results. Types of combined therapy may include microneedling RF (POTENZA™), dermaPen, mesotherapy, Q-switch laser, or others. Our doctors will select the best combination tailored to your skin needs.
What is the downtime?
It is best to allow yourself time to heal. With the PRP, if no microneedling is done, you may experience mild redness, bruising and/or swelling at the site of injections. Swelling resolves in 24-48 hours, but a bruise can last up to 2 weeks for some people. Regular activity can be resumed the next day.
How long will the effects of the treatment last?
You will notice improvement with a single procedure, but on average, you will need 4-6 treatments 3-4 weeks apart for optimal results. Usually, the results should last about 6 to 9 months and is unique to the individual ageing process. It is recommended to repeat once a year for maintenance and yearly rejuvenation.
