PLATELET RICH PLASMA & VAMPIRE FACIALS
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves injection of the patients own concentrate of platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and scars in the face, hands and neck. The PRP contains fundamental growth factors released by activated platelets to initiate the tissue regeneration process.
PRP treatment is extremely safe. Because PRP is produced from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. In addition, PRP contains concentrated amounts of white blood cells, your natural defenders against infections. It is less invasive than plastic surgery, takes about 60 - 90 mins for each treatment, and offers improvements for up to 18 months.
How does it work?
Growth factors contained in the plasma stimulate the release of the skin’s stem cells. The skin is being tricked into believing that it has been injured and must heal itself with new, fresh tissue. This somewhat sneaky process allows the skin to create new collagen, new blood vessels and new cells.
The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone, and colour with minimal or no recovery time. Results are visible within 2-3 weeks and will improve gradually over ensuing months with improvement in texture and tone.
Cosmoceutical skin care and light therapies can enhance the results.
This is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with quick recovery time, and is designed to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The treatment actually involves the use of the two procedure dermaPen Micro-needling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy done consecutively.
The first procedure dermaPen Micro-needling is a small hand held automatic device that contains many micro needles is passed over the skin creating tiny micro wounds, or channel’s on the skin. During the body’s natural wound healing process of these channels, collagen and elastin are automatically produced.
The second procedure is called PRP. Platelet rich Plasma is produced from an individual’s own blood. A blood sample is collected from the patient and put into a centrifuge, which is a tool that separates the PRP from the blood.
PRP contains highly concentrated amounts of Natural growth factors and other cytokines that promote the regeneration process of soft tissues. The PRP is applied directly to the channels that were created from the micro-needling to further stimulate the natural healing process and creation of collagen.
After the treatment your skin will be slightly pink and feel slightly sunburned, for most people, your skin will completely recover in 24-72 hours. Your body’s collagen production usually takes about 4-8 weeks so you will continue to see improvements over this time.
