Platelet Rich Plasma, also referred to as the “vampire facelift” or PRP, encourages skin rejuvenation and repair.
The Platelet Rich Plasma is extracted from the patients’ blood through a small blood sample and then re-injected back into the facial area. This process provides concentrated amounts of platelets, and stimulates both stem cells and growth factors to deliver skin damage repair.
This treatment is exceptional for delicate to treat areas such as under the eye and for scar repair. It is also excellent for all ages and skin types as it stimulates collagen and elastin production, therefore slows down the ageing process.
It is expected that a slight discomfort will occur at the time of injection and there is the possibility that a slight stinging sensation, swelling and/or bruising may occur after the injection; these should resolve within a couple of hours and up to a few days. The eye area swelling can take between 4-7 days for the swelling to subside completely.
