Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP Vampire Facial) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a regenerative treatment that uses the body’s growth factors to promote tissue growth, healing and repair.
How does PRP Therapy work?
PRP works by using platelets from your blood. These are harvested via a sample from your arm which is then placed in a centrifuge machine. These platelets are then injected into the body to stimulate a healing and growth response in the tissue.
PRP Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP can be injected into the dermal layer of the skin using very fine needles. Needles allow medicines (in this case, platelets) to bypass the outer layer of the skin and access the lower dermal layers, with minimal pain and maximum effectiveness. The PRP delivers a rich source of platelets to the site providing healing factors. It boosts the body’s tissue regeneration and repair of damaged cells and tissue. PRP has also been shown to promote a more youthful appearance by boosting the body’s production of elastin and collagen. This can leave the skin looking plumper and smoother and can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
PRP in the skin can be used to treat:
- Acne and acne scarring
- Scarring and scar formation
- Pigmentation and skin blemishes including vitiligo and melasma
- Fine lines and wrinkles (the ‘Vampire Facial’)
- For scalp expect hair growth and nourishment

What do you need to know about PRP?
Some localised bruising, swelling or redness are common immediately following the procedure, but you should be able to resume normal duties following treatment, avoiding excessive exposure to heat or sunlight, strenuous exercise or makeup.
The number of treatments and the time between treatments will depend on your condition. For skin treatment, we usually recommend a course of 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Your Nurse Practitioner will advise further during your consultation.
PRP Therapy Risks and Side Effects
PRP is ‘autologous’, meaning that it comes from your own body. It is therefore immunologically neutral and poses no danger of allergy, hyper-sensitivity or foreign-body reactions. Some bruising, swelling and redness are common immediately following the procedure and may last up to 72 hours.
