The Problem

Skin on the face can be our worst enemy; it’s nearly always on show and is often the biggest indicator of passing time. As we age, lines appear around the face, damage from too much time in the sun shows through spots and marks, and scars or pitting can leave us looking tired. The skin’s colour can sometimes change to a grey tone, making the face appear worn.

Non-invasive PRP Therapy

Also known as the Vampire Facelift or Dracula Therapy, PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy is an innovative approach to anti-ageing, which uses your body’s own healing process to rejuvenate and restore the skin.

The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical rejuvenation technique. It works by using a component of the blood called plasma, widely known for its ability to treat burns and skin injuries.

In the treatment, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient (around 10-20ml) in much the same manner as it would be for a blood test. It is placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the platelets and plasma from red blood cells and other components. Local anaesthetic can be applied to the areas that require treating, before the refined PRP is injected into the skin using a very fine needle. Key to PRP is the growth factors released from the platelets. When injected into the skin, a multitude of growth factors are released which stimulate surrounding cells to start the healing cascade. This in turn encourages the production of collagen and preadipocyte cells to plump and add volume.
