natural health prp vampire facial

Critics might suggest that modern aesthetic medicine is not consistent with a ‘natural’ and ‘holistic’ approach to beauty.

Yet as Aesthetic Physician Dr Barbara Kubicka explains in Natural Health Magazine, the latest cosmetic treatments and techniques are actually designed to stimulate or work with the body’s own processes.

PRP: Vampire Facial

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma therapy.

It has previously been nick-named the ‘vampire facial’ as it utilises a purified form of the patient’s own blood. Kim Kardashian was photographed with blood smeared on her face and a host of celebrities are said to have had the treatment to rejuvenate their skin.

Dr Kubicka explains why it is actually sympathetic to the body’s natural processes:

The principle of PRP, like all the best things in life, is simple yet clever.

PRP is based on utilising the body’s own healing and rejuvenation resources by extracting and purifying a sample of the patient’s blood to create a plasma solution which has a super-rich concentration of platelets.

The platelets contain intensive healing potential, which is then delivered back to the skin.

As the process involves no other ingredients than the patient’s own plasma, it is readily accepted back and kick-starts skin cell regeneration.

Holistic website Natural Health Magazine runs a series of articles about how the latest skin treatments and procedures, written by integrated skin and healthcare advocate, Dr Barbara Kubicka.


Dr Kubicka takes a holistic approach to skincare treatments; treating the patient as a whole in order to get the best possible results from any treatments they may have. Private consultations often include individual advice on nutrition, hydration and lifestyle as well as professional treatments.
