PRP CAN ALSO HELP WITH THE FOLLOWING MEDICAL ISSUES
PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) also known as the Vampire Facial or Dracula therapy relys on using the body’s own self repair mechanisms.
A small amount of the patient’s own blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge and the plasma is separated from the red blood cells.
This platelet-rich plasma is then re-injected in the area to be treated. This platelet-rich plasma contains Growth Factors which will help repair damaged skin and injured tissue.
When these growth factors are injected into the problem area they stimulate other growth factors in the skin to grow and increase in number, this stimulates the repair so increasing skin volume, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating the skin.
You will see the results around 8 weeks after the treatment. As always, good skin care will enhance the improvements.
