PLATELET RICH PLASMA
PRP is a non-surgical procedure that utilises the body’s own plasma to promote healing as well as stimulate skin and follicle recovery. Plasma is rich with platelets and growth factors which when introduced to the skin, encourages collagen production and increases cell turnover to reveal more youthful, hydrated and refreshed skin. Your unique plasma, extracted from your blood can also be injected into more specific areas to target blemishes, acne scarring, plump the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines. PRP also stimulates the body to up regulate the production of growth factors, accelerating healing processes and encouraging growth (in the case of scalp treatment).
PRP is a fantastic cosmetic treatment for naturally rejuvenating the skin, and repairing the effects of ageing. It provides total skin rejuvenation, treats delicate or difficult to reach areas, it’s natural and it’s safe.
Injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the scalp is a revolutionary new treatment shown to promote hair growth. Plasma is extracted from a blood sample and re-injected into the areas of the scalp that require stimulation. PRP stimulates the cells in the micro-environment of the hair follicle and increases vascularity to the hair root. PRP stimulates inactive as well as newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase. The treatment works best on thinning hair, to slow or stop the progression of hair loss and to promote hair growth after a hair transplant.

Although our vampire facial is done with minimum discomfort, a skin-numbing cream is applied first to avoid the possibility of needle sensitivity. The PRP serum is then injected just under your skin using extremely thin micro-needles.
Some redness and swelling may occur for several hours, but will generally dissipate in no more than two days. Over time you can experience 10-15% more volume to your face, and this could last years.
