Also known as ‘a vampire facelift’, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy involves using the healing properties contained in blood to provide a natural and effective regeneration treatment.
A fully qualified practitioner will take a small amount of blood. Using a centrifuge, we split the blood into its separate components. We take the plasma and this is what we then inject into the desired areas. The platelets in the plasma aid healing and regeneration, releasing growth factors which stimulate cell growth.
How many treatments you need depends on the area, but usually most people have three treatments per year.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and, as a result, has less volume and shape. Using PRP therapy, we can encourage cell regrowth and increase collagen reproduction. Plasma also contains hyaluronic acid, which is the ingredient used in many skin rejuvenation treatments. It promotes cell regeneration. As a result, PRP restores volume and you’ll notice a healthy glow following the treatment as new cells start to grow.
PRP therapy can help regenerate hair follicles in areas where hair growth has thinned. We inject the plasma into the scalp at the areas where hair has stopped growing. The plasma boosts regeneration, extending the growth cycle. Treatment for hair loss needs more appointments than facial rejuvenation.
