The term ‘vampire facelift’ is hot in the media at the moment.
Allegedly it is the treatment all the A-listers rushed to have before the big red carpet season this year, hoping for younger-looking skin.
So what exactly is the gruesomely-named procedure, and why the name?
The vampire facelift has become the media nickname for PRP treatment. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma therapy and it has a host of uses in both aesthetic and medical treatments.
The secret behind PRP and the source of the ‘vampire’ nickname is that it uses the patient’s own blood to achieve skin rejuvenation and renewal.
Your blood plasma contains many natural healing properties. The PRP process works in 3 basic stages:
- A sample of the patients’ blood is taken and concentrated using a special process
- It is then carefully applied back into or onto the treatment area using a mesotherapy type technique of tiny injections or else Dermaroller for larger areas
- The skin’s collagen production and healing is triggered by the platelet growth factors in the plasma, leading
Dr Kubicka explains:
“We are seeing excellent results from PRP. Using the healing properties of the patient’s own blood avoids the use of any artificial toxins or substances. It is a natural approach in principle, but in practice it uses the latest skin science and technology.”
“By boosting the patient’s collagen it achieves a healthy glow, smoothes out fine lines and works over sun damage for long-lasting results.”
“The list of conditions that can be treated is quite considerable and getting ever longer as practitioners discover more ways to take advantage of the plasma healing power.”
