FAQ

To help inform your thinking, we’ve put together answers to some of the questions were most frequently asked about Vampire Facelift (PRP) treatment.

What are platelets?

Platelets are the body’s own clotting and repair mechanism. They repair damaged blood cells and vessels in the body. Platelets contain growth factors and they activate and rejuvenate cells in the body.

How does vampire facelift (PRP) work?

When the platelets are concentrated as in a PRP treatment they contain large amounts of bioactive proteins such as the growth hormone factors.

Growth factors can initiate accelerated tissue repair and skin rejuvenation. The body’s own collagen production is stimulated with tissue repair from the growth factors.

IS PRP safe?

Yes the treatment is performed using your own blood, eliminating a concern for disease transmission.

How long has PRP been used?

PRP has been used widely for the last 10 years in fields such as plastic surgery, dentistry, orthopedics and aesthetics. In aesthetics it has been used as an effective alternative t dermal fillers for skin rejuvenation.

Are there any other uses of PRP?

You will have an anaesthetic cream applied to the area until numb and the practitioner will take some blood from your arm. The blood then goes into a machine to spin. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into the area.

Will PRP hurt?

No, you may feel a little discomfort but this will be brief. You can have temporary bruising, swelling or itchiness around the injection sites.
