Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma rejuvenation (PRP) has captured a lot of media attention under the name ‘Vampire Facial’ or ‘Vampire Facelift’, due to its popularisation by celebrities like Kim Kardashian. In this case, the media hype is warranted as this is an extremely effective, clinically proven cosmetic procedure that uses the patient’s blood to improve the condition of facial skin.

 

Dr Alia Nasser is highly trained in administering Platelet Rich Plasma rejuvenation and consistently creates fantastic results for her patients.  She begins the procedure by drawing blood from the patient’s arm just like during a routine blood test. Then, using a centrifuge, she isolates the platelets from the blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP). She then ‘activates’ those platelet-rich platelets to release at least 8 growth factors which are naturally used by the body to heal injured tissue. When re-injected into the skin, these growth factors work like magic to create increased collagen and new blood flow to the treated areas.

 

Using numbing cream and a very small needle (causing almost no pain), Dr Nasser injects the patient’s own growth factors back into the face (or the area of concern). These growth factors then activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin, ‘tricking’ them into thinking there’s been an injury and that new younger tissue should be generated. The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to ‘repair’ the skin that was never injured!

The result …younger-looking skin with fewer lines and imperfections and improved texture!

The effects of the procedure improve over 2 to 3 months and results may last for 1 to 2 years! Most procedures are completed in less than an hour.

Platelet Rich Plasma treatment may also be used in combination with micro-needing, which is then followed by application of the PRP.

Platelet Rich Plasma is for people seeking:

  • Youthful, vibrant and glowing skin 
  • Tighter, firmer skin 
  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Fewer fine lines
  • Reduction or elimination of acne scars
  • Elimination of dark under-eye circles
  • Improved skin texture or tone

The Vampire Facial or Platelet Rich Plasma treatment gives your body what it needs to naturally boost collagen production and develop fresh skin cells. The results are not instant because it takes time for your body to make these adjustments and begin the process of healing your skin. The condition of your skin improves gradually but considerably, achieving beautiful, natural looking results.
