Platelet Rich Plasma
Skin & Hair Rejuvenation
'Platelet Rich Plasma' is a very effective anti-ageing skin rejuvenation procedure.
More commonly known as the ‘vampire facelift’ or ‘Dracula therapy’, it involves micro injections of the client's own platelets (small blood cells that help in wound healing) into ageing skin, wounds, scalp and scars.
It's used for the treatment of;
- 'Dull' skin
- Dark circles
- Under eye puffiness
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Sagging facial skin
...in these areas of the body;
- Crows feet wrinkles around the eyes
- Cheeks & mid-face
- Chest & décollétage
- Hands & arms
How does it work?
When the platelet plasma is injected into the skin, the platelets release their growth factors. The growth factors stimulate other cells surrounding the injection site, plumping them up and causing them to increase in volume. The platelet plasma sends out signals to other cells in the body when it is injected, telling them to rush forward to the injection site. One cell that is stimulated during the process is the fibroblast cell, which is the cell type that creates collagen. Collagen is what gives skin a youthful appearance!
PRP creates naturally smooth and tightened skin that glows with a youthful vigour. It softens wrinkles and results in smoother skin texture and tone.
Hair Loss/thinning Treatment
Our PRP treatment also serves as a non-surgical remedy to premature hair loss and thinning. It is most commonly used to treat male/female pattern baldness and alopecia but may also be used to encourage rapid hair growth in areas such as the beard, the eyebrows and the pubic area.
Through careful follicle stimulation, PRP can drastically improve the appearance of hair fullness, thickness and volume. It makes use of nutrient rich resources in the blood to accelerate hair growth in the most natural, pain-free way possible. Using the body's own natural instinct to heal itself, PRP injections target struggling stem cells, to assist them in the growth of healthy new hair.
PRP infusions are a tried and tested method for boosting wispy, lifeless or fine hair, leaving it visibly fuller and more healthy. It is the perfect treatment for both male and female pattern hair loss, various forms of alopecia, and those suffering with hormonal imbalances that have led to hair loss.
