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. 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 RegenKit® A-PRP® system. RegenLab PRP was the first platelet-rich plasma treatment in Australia and is backed by 112 scientific papers for a myriad of indications.
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. PRP treatment 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.
When combined with secondary procedures such as laser skin resurfacing PRP can achieve outstanding rejuvenation. A PRP facial 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.
