PRP (vampire facial)

Made famous by the iconic Kim K selfie, a ‘Vampire Facial’ uses microneedling to insert Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) into the deeper layers of your skin. 

The treatment involves taking blood from your arm, (like getting a blood test), then placing it in a centrifuge to extract platelet-rich plasma. 

This plasma naturally stimulates collagen and elastin production in your face, resulting in a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion within days. 

It can also be used to improve your skin’s texture, reducing pores, dark spots, scars and wrinkles, as well as achieving firm and glowing skin. 

The treatment is minimally invasive and non-surgical, and is relatively painless with the help of topical anaesthetic pre-procedure. 

PRP doesn’t require any recovery time, and redness and swelling typically clear up within 24-48 hours of the treatment. 

PRP is a safe, effective and pain-free procedure when administered by a trained professional. 

In dermatology and cosmetic medicine, PRP has been used to treat acne, scarring, alopecia. It is also effective for skin rejuvenation and tightening , even around the eyes.

When PRP is injected, it stimulates the tissue, causing mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As a result, new collagen begins to develop, which tightens and strengthens the skin.

PRP can help with:

FACE – As an effective treatment to restore your skin’s youthful appearance including: crow’s feet, frown lines and loose skin

BODY – By stimulating and accelerating your natural healing process, the skin is rejuvenated and renewed for stretch marks, cellulite and scarring (after injuries, new or old)

SCALP – Promotes new growth, to help give you fuller and thicker hair for hair rejuvenation
