Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy
Cosmetic Clinic Dubai | 30 August 2019
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’ or ‘Dracula Therapy’, works on the basis that the body’s own natural healing powers may slow and even reverse the ageing process. It is a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.
Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
A state-of-the-art Concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma System enables me to process large amounts of whole blood which means that more areas are able to be treated during the session and that patients aren’t required to have as many sessions throughout the year. The blood is taken from the patient during the treatment, then treated (in a centrifuge) to harvest the platelet rich plasma which will be activated and re-injected into the desired area. The therapy plumps the skin, fills out fine lines and wrinkles, and gives an overall more radiant appearance. The procedure also has fantastic healing benefits for injuries.
