The “Vampire Facial” is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), then re-injecting it to erase wrinkles and create a more youthful look.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma, is nothing but autologous blood with concentrations of platelets above baseline levels, that contain at least seven growth factors.
Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets). The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.
PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
Why would one benefit from PRP?
Normal blood contains only 6% platelets however, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets, which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and cytokines. This stimulates cellular tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.
For this reason this treatment is very successful in treating the signs of ageing, as well as assisting in hair regeneration and even muscle and joint regeneration.
Which Procedures are commonly performed using PRP?
- Wrinkle Improvement: fine wrinkles, eye wrinkles, wrinkles around mouth and forehead wrinkles.
- Skin Colour and Circulation: dark circles under the eyes, areas of poor colour and dull complexion.
- Skin pores and Elasticity: reduction of skin pore size, improvement in skin elasticity and skin tone.
- Hair Restoration: because the platelets contain vital growth hormones, PRP injections are naturally a good fit for stimulating lost hair follicles.
- Other Applications: treatment of burn wounds, joint therapy, sports injuries (Muscle repair) etc.
What makes DrPRP superior?
Most practitioners performing PRP treatments use a system whereby the patients’ blood is only put through one centrifugation process. Lift & Tuck utilises the DrPRP system with specialised, specifically designed collection kits, with a unique protocol where the patient’s blood is put through two centrifugation processes. The outcome being, super-concentrated PRP, yielding a superior result. The DrPRP’s patented design ensures that we get a large amount of growth factors from the patients’ blood plasma samples.
Not only this, but we also offer a more complete treatment, giving our patients the option of treating the face, neck, décolleté and hands, all in one session. We also have various methods of application in order to specifically tailor the treatments to each patient’s needs. We are able to combine both injection mesotherapy techniques with micro-needling to ensure that we deliver this super-concentrated PRP exactly to the areas it’s needed using techniques that will give our patients the very best results as quickly as possible.
