PRP face (Vampire facial), hair & scars
PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma. This is a component of your blood that’s rich in white blood cells and growth factors. PRP can encourage healing and has been used to try to help the healing of damaged ligaments, tendons, joints, muscle and skin.
When you’re young, your skin is usually elastic and plump. It normally heals quickly when it’s injured. As you age, the fibres that support your skin and provide flexibility can begin to degrade. At the same time, our skin can lose hyaluronic acid, a substance that helps it retain moisture. The combination of these processes can lead to sagging skin, wrinkles and lines. The skin’s texture may be thinner, and you might notice more blood vessels under the surface. Your skin may even get irritated more easily, and wounds can take longer to heal.
Many people try to correct the signs of ageing once they’re noticeable. However, many skin rejuvenation products can have difficulty being absorbed deeply enough to be effective. Topical treatments may also contain chemicals that aren’t ideal for your body. PRP is injected beneath the surface of the skin which may stimulate collagen and elastin production firming and tightening thinning skin, effectively smoothing wrinkles and fine lines.
1. PRP HAIR TREATMENT
First, the medical professional collects blood, which is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is processed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets. Then, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the regions of the scalp where the hair is thinning combined with micro-needling the entire scalp. Click here to find out more.
2. PRP FACE & SCAR TREATMENTS (inc. Vampire facial)
PRP skin treatments are a safe, popular way to address common issues with the skin and help tackle the many signs of ageing.
PRP, platelet rich plasma, uses the awesome healing power of your blood and the growth factors contained within its plasma which can deliver everything your skin needs to heal and regenerate.
The PRP solution can help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two primary ingredients in healthy, younger-looking skin. This is why it’s so popular!
PRP skin treatments can help deliver firmer, younger looking skin as well as treat a range of common conditions such as acne scars, sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines, discolouration and hyperpigmentation.
PRP skin treatments are:
- Completely safe and 100% natural
- Non-invasive and require no surgery
- Believed effective at treating many skin conditions
- A viable alternative to other cosmetic treatments
- Affordable and accessible to both men and women
How Our PRP Treatments are Performed
- A medical professional takes a small sample of your blood.
- This sample is then spun in a centrifuge, separating the platelets (growth factors) from the red blood cells.
- Your own platelets that are rich in growth factors are then reintroduced into areas of the scalp where there is hair loss or thinning with small injections.
- Your scalp is then micro-needled to encourage blood flow to areas of the scalp where there is hair loss or thinning (miniaturised hair follicles).
What to Expect Before and After the Procedure
Most PRP skin procedures take about 45 minutes. Before the treatment, patients should stop taking any medications that influence platelet function, including some herbs and over-the-counter pain medications. You should consult with your physician before discontinuing any medication, though.
Be gentle with your skin following the procedure. It may be slightly red, tender or bruised. You may also feel tingling or pressure where the needles were introduced. These side effects are temporary. Using moisturizers that contain natural ingredients can help replenish the moisture barrier, which is essential for healing.
Because skin cells need time to develop, you might not notice the results right away. The full effects of a PRP skin procedure can typically show up within a few weeks or months. The benefits can last for up to 18 months. It is recommended for people to have maintenance treatments to maintain their results.
How do PRP skin treatments work?
The PRP skin treatment process is very straightforward and appointments last around 45 minutes.
We begin by taking a small sample of blood, like a blood test. We separate the blood until we have the plasma we’re looking for.
That plasma contains the essential growth factors we need to help regenerate your skin and make repairs.
Once ready, we perform tiny PRP injections under the eyes then microneedle the entire face with your own plasma.
Cost £229 for one session
£629 for three sessions
