What is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment?

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.
