Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a form of injectable cosmetic treatment that uses the client’s platelet-rich plasma. The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets. When injected back into the skin, it accelerates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.

ABOUT Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP facial rejuvenation, also known as a vampire facial, is an advanced skincare treatment method that harnesses your body's natural power to heal itself. Sometimes called a vampire facial, it involves drawing your blood. Your blood has four primary components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. We use a centrifuge to separate these four components by density; that's when the magic happens! The plasma component contains stem cells and growth rich platelets. When injected back into the skin, it accelerates the body's natural production of collagen and elastin to provide overall skin rejuvenation.
Benefits of a PRP "Vampire Facial"
Increased Collagen Production
Around the age of 25, your body's collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline at a significant rate for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate its production rate. Moreover, the quality of the collagen produced drops. All of this results in visibly unhealthy skin.
Whether you're dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles or severe folds, or you have other visible skin issues, and there's an excellent chance that a vampire facial will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production.
As soon as your skin is penetrated with microneedling, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher quality collagen takes a couple of weeks to develop. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You'll see that the results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a vampire facial. Old skin cells are recycled, and new skin cells, collagen and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in part as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the treatment's micro-injuries. The appearance of deeper folds diminish as hollow areas of your face get plumped up!
Tighter, Firmer Skin
As stated previously, collagen is also essential for tight, firm skin. As you age, your skin starts to sag, but wrinkles and lines don't always form. Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt. Increased Collagen plumps up the skin; some people may use a vampire facial to plump up their lips or re-contour their cheeks without needing an invasive medical procedure.
Improved Moisture Retention
The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected your skin's deeper layers are from outside irritants. A healthy skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. Moreover, it helps to unclog your pores, making your skin more receptive to prescription moisturizers. The effects of a vampire facial on pores are a little confusing because treatment can reduce pores' appearance. However, you can benefit from the reduced appearance of pores and unclogged pores, making it easier to absorb prescription medications for beauty enhancement.
Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture
If you have acne scars, surgical scars, scars from traumatic injury, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and other forms of low skin tone or texture, you can benefit from a facial enhanced with PRP. With old skin cells giving birth to new, healthy ones, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing improvement in the appearance of your skin just a few short days after one vampire facial.
Frequently asked questions
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma which contains approximately three to five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition to the platelets, it contains growth factors and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing and hair growth.
What does the PRP treatment do?
PRP has a number of benefits. The treatment can improve skin texture and tone, reduce fine lines and scarring, and stimulate collagen and skin cell production for a plumper, more radiant complexion.
How does it work?
A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area that will be treated. Then, our clinician will draw a small sample of blood, which is then spun in a centrifuge for approximately five minutes to separate the plasma from the other blood particles. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected back into the treatment area to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
