Introducing PRP the Vampire Facial

As we age our complexion can start to look tired and dull, one of the reasons is the reduction of platelets in the blood. The Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) or ‘Vampire Facial’ boosts the platelets to rejuvenate the skin, improving tone and texture. Extensive research has established a direct correlation between platelets and tissue growth.

At SKYN® we use the Angel PRP system that yields the highest level of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma available in this medical field today. Real collagen rejuvenation is achieved by stimulating your skin’s stem cells to regenerate the collagen and elastin naturally and at the same time removing the damaged cells that are ageing you. The Angel PRP System yields platelets at such a level it will harness your natural healing processes to release growth factors and stem cells known to stimulate and regulate cell growth and the formation of new connective tissue.

The ‘Angel Lift’, which, when combined with secondary procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, can achieve outstanding rejuvenation. The Angel Lift is also popularly known as the Vampire Facial.

PRP therapy draws on a patient’s own blood, using it to generate thicker, smoother and more supple skin in areas such as the face and neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, before being reinjected into the treatment area. There, the activated platelets release growth factors, which facilitate cell growth, the formation of blood capillaries and, most importantly, the building of new collagen.

What areas can be treated with PRP?

Angel PRP can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom.

The Angel PRP system treats;

  • crinkling skin around the eyes
  • crow’s feet
  • facial collagen
  • lip lines
  • dull complexion
  • neck wrinkles
  • chest
  • hands and arms
  • post pregnancy tummy

If you have had a baby or lost weight recently and feel you have lax skin Angel PRP can help with skin tightening. Regardless of what area of the face or body the Angel PRP system can be applied.

The therapy begins by first drawing the patient’s own blood into a specially prepared test tube. The tube is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate out the precious platelets. These very same platelets when activated, release several proteins that are beneficial for increasing collagen formation, connective tissue formation, skin tightening, and overall rejuvenation. – this concentrate, known as the matrix, is then injected into the areas to be treated.

Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift comes from the use of the client’s own blood for the treatment, and the prevalence of vampires in pop culture.

The Vampire Facial has received a lot of media attention because of its popularity with movie stars and celebrities like Kym Kardashian, and of course its sensational nickname.

The client may experience slight swelling but this will usually disappear in 24 hours. In cases where the client is prone to bruising easily, slight bruising may be evident, but as with any other filler, this is easily covered with make-up.

Results include skin that is thicker, more elastic and tighter, with a smoother texture and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. This is achieved because the underlying foundation of supportive collagen, elastin and retinaculum fibres in the skin’s dermis is increased.

The results are normally seen within 2-3 months and may require 2 separate sessions.

No unnatural substances are used, therefore there is no danger of adverse/allergic reactions because you are using your own cells.
