PRP/ Vampire Facial
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, also known as a 'vampire facial', is skin rejuvenation using your own cells and natural healing factors.
PRP therapy involves injection of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands, and neck.
PRP obtained from your blood contains platelets, which clog cuts and tears in the body. Platelets also have growth factors, stimulating collagen production when injected into the skin.
PRP Therapy has been used in many medical procedures (e.g. wound healing and during joint surgery) over the years, and its safety is well established.
PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation since 2006 and is very well renowned, with many celebrities (such as Kim Kardashian) being known to have done this treatment.
