Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ or ‘Liquid Gold Face Lift’, works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers may slow and even reverse the aging process. It is a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.

A small amount of the patient's own blood is taken and the plasma is then separated out from the rest of the blood, by means of a centrifuge to create the platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is then injected into the area of concern where the platelets release their growth factors.

Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection, the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume, and rejuvenating the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas can be treated with PRP?

Commonly treated areas include dark circles under the eyes, the jawline, cheeks, forehead, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, and neck.

How does PRP work?

When the PRP is re-injected into the skin, growth factors are released by the platelets. This promotes healing and stimulates collagen production. Collagen, found naturally in the body, is the foundation of a youthful appearance. During the aging process, less collagen is produced resulting in decreased volume, lines, and wrinkles. Through stimulating collagen production, PRP helps to promote even skin tone, reduced scarring, and improve skin texture resulting in healthy, resilient, hydrated skin.

What is Plasma?

Plasma is the clear liquid part of the blood remaining once all other cellular components are removed. Plasma carries out many functions in the body including fighting diseases, healing, and hydration. During PRP treatment the plasma is used to suspend a high concentration of your own platelets.

Can everybody have PRP?

Unfortunately not. Patients with abnormal platelet function, clotting disorders, and chronic liver diseases, pregnancy, lactation are not suitable for PRP therapy. Please remember to disclose your relevant medical history during your consultation.

Are there any risks with PRP Therapy?

Because you are using your own blood with no foreign substances, side effects are minimal. The injection process may cause some bruising, swelling, and tenderness. As the platelets are the patients' own there is no risk of transmissible diseases or allergic reactions. Infection risk is minimised by ensuring sterile technique and equipment.
