Popularised by the media as a ‘Vampire Facial’, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy is a medical procedure that uses a client’s blood to rebuild skin cells and stimulate collagen formation. Used for decades in sports medicine to aid soft-tissue recovery and accelerate healing, PRP has gained an almost cult like status due to its impressive results and popularity with celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Bar Refaelli.
It all starts with the platelet-rich plasma found in a patient’s blood. Platelets are the natural component in blood responsible for clotting and repairing cells. Injected into the skin, this plasma releases proteins which stimulate collagen and elastin growth, increasing elasticity whilst adding a natural fullness and healthy, youthful look. Most commonly used on the face, PRP treatment can be use on the face, neck, hands and all over the body.
