The Aesthetics Lab Vampire Facial PRP protocol takes all the benefits of microneedling – a treatment that triggers your skin’s innate healing processes to create more collagen and elastin – and supercharges them with concentrated platelets and growth factors taken from your own blood (this is known as platelet-rich plasma or PRP).
PRP naturally contributes to skin elasticity, firmness and a smoother texture. With this treatment, we’re able to harness its extraordinary regenerative abilities to tackle issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, and the early signs of skin ageing.
Before your Vampire Facial PRP treatment, we’ll talk to you about your skin health and medical history and carry out a thorough skin assessment. This is an opportunity to discuss the issues you would like to address in depth.
We will take a sample of your blood from your arm (this is done in the same way as having blood drawn by a nurse or GP). This is placed in a cutting-edge centrifuge machine called the Cellenis PR to separate the highest possible concentration of platelets (the PRP cells with those amazing restorative abilities) from your red blood cells.
The procedure begins with microneedling, which creates hundreds of tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin. Next, we massage your PRP into the treatment area. The microneedling ensures that the regenerative serum is able to penetrate under the surface to speed up the healing process, make new collagen and strengthen your connective tissues. As a result, you should notice your skin looking tighter, brighter and rejuvenated for up to 12 months.
As part of our unique Intensive Collagen Induction protocol, your Vampire Facial PRP treatment will end with a soothing hyaluronic mask and collagen-boosting LED light therapy that will further hydrate, plump and strengthen your skin.
It’s normal to experience some redness and tenderness in the treated area. This usually fades significantly within an hour, but you may notice some slight redness for a couple of days post-treatment.
PRP has many medical and aesthetic applications including skin regeneration, healing sports injuries, hair growth and more. It has an excellent safety record because it uses your own blood cells, minimising the risk of a negative reaction.
With our Vampire Facial PRP protocol, you should expect to see ongoing improvements to your skin for six to 12 months after your treatment is complete. It’s important to trust the process instead of viewing this as an instant skin fix! The treatment works by healing deep within your skin and stimulating new collagen growth. In the days, weeks and months post-treatment, you should notice that your skin feels firmer, looks bright and youthful and that scars and pigmentation visibly fade.
Our exclusive PRP therapy protocol is particularly effective for smoothing wrinkles and fine lines, restoring volume and elasticity, enhancing skin quality, tone and texture, and reducing the appearance of scarring. This is because it speeds up and intensifies the natural healing processes triggered by microneedling by using the restorative abilities of your own body. The treatment can also be used to stimulate hair growth.
