For ladies that are considering surgery so as to remove most if not all of the wrinkles in your face, but you are scared of undergoing surgery probably due to your fear of having knives and other things like that in your body, well this could be the answer for you and it is called PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment, it is most often called a vampire facial therapy. The good thing about the vampire facial is that it uses your own blood to improve your skin so if you want to keep things natural, PRP is the best choice to prevent and repair lines and wrinkles and aged skin.
How Does PRP Treatment Work?
The procedure for the PRP (Platelets Rich Plasma) – Vampire facial treatment involves extracting blood from your arm. This blood contains platelets which are a natural source of growth factors. The blood platelets are extracted from the blood and processed using specialized PRP tubes to harvest high amount of platelets. This content is then injected into the deep dermis and areas of the face where lines and wrinkles have formed. Those tiny injections given all over your face (always using medical grade topical anesthetic) in the areas of more concern and those areas where you can prevent ageing, quickly stimulate the dermis of your skin, promoting collagen synthesis and speed up skin cells turnover tightening the skin which will remove facial lines, wrinkles, folds, creepy skin especially around the eye area, droopy jowls, skin sagginess, hydration, even skin tone, and many more amazing results.
PRP Procedure – How long does it take?
The procedure could take between 90 to 120 minutes. Results become visible at around 6 weeks, the number of treatments depends of the level of repair needed, we advised to repeat them after 4-6 weeks if required. Skin rejuvenation effects continue to improve as collagen continue to synthetize for 3 to 6 months and are expected to last for up to 12 to 15 months.
Procedures that involve facial injections are certainly not new in the world of aesthetic and cosmetics. Botox, Sculptra and the famous Juverderm for lip fillers, cheek filler / augmentation / enhancement and for the treatment of marionettes lines to mention some are very popular treatments used to rejuvenate the face and restore a youthful appearance.
Combined treatments: Vampire Facial (PRP) combined with other antiaging treatments like Microneedling, Lip Fillers / Augmentation, Cheek Fillers / Augmentation/ Enhancement is always advised for superb results.
A daily skin care routine with professional brands like ENVIRON and Neostrata based on Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E , rich level of antioxidants and peptides is the basic first step towards a youthful fresh look.
