How many treatments?
A course of 6 treatments is recommended, the first 3 at 4 week intervals and the second 3 at 12 week intervals.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment takes time to gradually correct the texture and lines in your skin and results can be visible from 6-12 weeks after treatment.
How does it work?
Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Injected platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate and stimulate repair, increase volume and rejuvenate the skin.
Additionally, growth factors boost collagen production and improve skin elasticity. PRP Injections are injected below the surface of the skin in the area of fat loss and/or wrinkles and provides a gradual increase in skin thickness.
Before the procedure, blood is taken from the patient and put into a centrifuge, where the blood is spun in order to separate the red blood cells from the platelet plasma (hence the name Vampire Facial). Harvested platelets are then injected into problem skin areas, where they release growth factors.
Certain medication, blood thinning ( anticoagulant) medication, steroidal or any other long term therapies.
Are PRP injections safe?
PRP is a very safe non-invasive procedure, however, it must be performed by a qualified nurse/doctor!
