PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy)

vamp-header

I am very excited to offer this well-known and sought-after treatment, highly regarded by many high-profile V.I.P’S and celebrities.

This treatment may have a scary-sounding name but its skin rejuvenating results have been proven to be absolutely amazing.  It is not gory or dangerous and it is not terribly painful.

It’s an ideal treatment for people who would rather have a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation.

How PRP Therapy Works

A small sample of your blood is taken (like a regular blood test), which is then separated into three components: red blood cells, platelets and serum. Your platelets are injected back into your skin, into areas where rejuvenation is required. Platelets release growth factors that stimulate the body to repair, regenerate and heal new tissue.  So as well as improving the skin tone and texture, the treatment also promotes DNA repair, heals scars and stimulates healthy skin growth and collagen production… so skin will appear plumper and more youthful.
Very fine needles are used under stringent hygienic conditions.  Plus an anaesthetic numbing cream is also used prior to treatment for your comfort, making this a relatively painless procedure.
After your treatment your skin may be tender, but often you can return to work afterwards. Certainly by the next day you should have no soreness or bruising.

What conditions can be treated with PRP Therapy?

PRP Therapy can be used to improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles.  Areas that are sometimes difficult to treat such as the thin crepey areas under the eyes and on the neck can show dramatic improvements.  It is extremely effective at improving premature ageing and preventing ageing generally.

What areas can be treated with PRP Therapy?

There are few limitations to PRP Therapy and it can be used to rejuvenate the face, neck, décolletage, backs of hands and other body areas. It can also be used in place of cortisone injections for the treatment of ligament and joint problems.

Is PRP Therapy safe?

PRP Therapy is a completely safe and natural treatment and is highly effective at improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and dull, tired-looking skin.  It uses your own blood so there are little to no side effects and no risk of rejection.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

Results will vary depending on your skin but generally we suggest having 2-3 treatments.

PRP therapy is not a new treatment

The existence of growth factors was first discovered by Dr Stanley Cohen and Dr Rita Levi-Montalcini in the 1950′s. This discovery opened the doors for PRP, and they were subsequently awarded the Nobel Prize for their work.

More than 3,000 medical studies have since been published proving its effectiveness.

These days PRP is used in various fields of medicine including dental, orthopedic, eye laser surgery, plastic surgery, heart surgery and, most commonly, to treat sports injuries.

In summary, this is not a new procedure, but one with medical substance.

FYI: PRP is also known as self-stimulated serum, vampire therapy (as it’s often called in the USA) and dracula therapy.
