To rejuvenate the skin with growth factors derived from your own blood (“The Vampire Treatment”)

Regen Platelet Rich PlasmaPRP is a treatment that rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen , elastin and hyaluronic acid at all levels – the epidermis, the dermis and the subdermal tissues. It is becoming more popular as a cosmetic treatment, but has been used in other areas of medicine for some time, eg wound healing and to promote healing in sports injuries.

The term platelet rich plasma is used to describe plasma that has been concentrated to contain a high percentage of platelets. Platelets are rich in growth factors and other substances that promote tissue healing and collagen production.

Areas that are typically treated include the delicate skin around the eyes,the neck, the décolletage and the backs of hands. These areas are often very difficult to treat with other non-surgical methods. The treatment is excellent for improving the overall texture of the face and is perfect to follow other skin treatments that stimulate collagen production,for example after the Elos Sublative RF resurfacing procedure.

During a typical treatment session, blood is taken and then separated in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the treatment area and then the platelet-rich plasma is injected into this area using a very fine needle. Patients should expect to have some swelling,minor bruising and redness after the treatment and this can take 24-48 hours to settle.

We recommend an initial course of three treatments performed 6-8 weeks apart. Every treatment will result in stimulation of collagen . Skin quality and texture will continue to improve over several months.  Generally a single follow up treatment every 6-12 months will help to maintain results.
