PRP Treatments

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments has become known as the “Vampire Facial”.
It’s a treatment that combines Microneedling or injections with the natural, organic plasma rich in healing platelets from your own blood. Some social media images have shown people with their faces covered in blood- hence the Vampire Facial. In reality, your plasma is a golden colour!

How Does PRP Work?

Microneedling creates tiny, invisible perforations to penetrate bespoke serums into the skin and is a highly effective Collagen Induction treatment. 

With a  Vampire Facial.  instead of serums, the plasma from your own blood, containing platelets, growth factors and other active ingredients, is penetrated into the skin using a Microneedling technique.

Your plasma is transported deep into the dermis and initiates a localized stem cell response to help repair damaged or ageing skin.   Your collagen production is initiated leading to tighter, clearer, lifted and more youthful looking skin.

Frequently asked questions

Blood is drawn from your arm and then placed in a centrifuge to separate the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This completely natural serum is micro-needled into the skin, which has been pre-numbed. A “mask” of the PRP is ideally left on the skin for 24 hours. The treatment time is approximately 75-90 minutes.

Treatments should be carried out no more than quarterly. However, microneedling with other serums can be done more regularly. The number of treatments required will depend upon your skin condition.

Immediately after treatment, your skin will feel tight and a little tender … a bit like sunburn. Once you rinse off the plasma “mask”, your skin will be pink for 24-48 hours and feel dry and flaky for a further 2-3 days. This is perfectly normal and should not cause concern.
