Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)which is also know as the ''Vampire facial'' is a wonderful treatment that utilises the body's own healing powers to stimulate new tissue growth giving your skin a healthy glow and aid in nourishing the hair follicles in the scalp to promote hair growth. PRP treatment can be used on the face to restore the skin's youthful appearance. This treatment improves skin texture & tone and regenerates collagen, helping reduce wrinkles and fine lines, tackle blemishes and improve scarring. It can also be used to treat hair loss by regenerating & promoting hair growth for both men and women. A small amount of the patient's own blood is taken and the plasma is then separated using 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 into the skin/scalp.
PRP treatment is minimally painful and local anaesthesia numbing cream can be applied to the area being treated.
PRP Face treatment is usually recommended as a course of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. then depending on your individual needs, maintenance session once a year is usual.
