Description of treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, also known as the Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy is ideal for reducing wrinkles and lines, tackling blemishes, improving scarring and promoting an even skin tone and texture. A small amount of blood is taken from the patient in much the same manner as it would be for a blood test. It is put in a centrifuge and spun to separate platelets and plasma from red blood cells.
When injected into the skin, growth factors are released which stimulate surrounding cells to start the healing cascade. This encourages the production of collagen and other cells to plump and add volume to the skin.
The procedure is particularly beneficial for treating dark circles around the eyes, as the skin is too thin for fillers or botulinum toxin injections to be used.
