Natural Facial Enhancement with Platelet Rich Plasma (Vampire Facelift)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the healing power of your own body repairing skin at the cellular level. The process starts with taking your own blood is taken from your own veins in special tubes. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge to in order to separate mesenchymal cells.
The platelet rich plasma can be injected into areas of concerns that have lost volume over time. They can be used as superficial as right under the skin to rejuvenate skin or deeper down such as under the cheeks to provide volume and lift. The platelets cause your body to deposit its own collagen thereby turning back the clock.
I recommend PRP to patients who have either lost volume due to ageing or sun damaged skin. To minimise bruising or discomfort, I tell patients to avoid Asprin, Vitamin E, Fish oil, Primrose oil, Nurofen, Ginkgo Biloba, Chinese and Herbal medicines for one week before the treatment. In some cases 3-4 treatments may be required to get the desired outcome.
The best results have been noted in areas such as under the eyes, cheeks, neck, décolletage and back of hands. This is especially true in Perth where our sun is so harsh that it prematurely ages our skin.
Attached is an example of how PRP can help address the persistent neck lines. While we have many treatment modalities such as wrinkle relaxer, fillers, surgical neck lift and thread lift, PRP is the most natural and least invasive way to achieve the results in most patients. The patient below is a 65 year old female has had 2 vials of PRP injected each time. We have seen her on a monthly basis and repeated the treatment 3 times. At the end of the treatment, we are able to see a noticeable improvement in her elasticity of her skin.
