Vampire Facial - PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Vampire Facial (PRP Injection) is also called Autologous Cellular Regeneration (ACR). It is a completely natural approach to skin rejuvenation using your body’s own cells – a type of stem cell therapy specifically for your skin.
PRP injections can be used on areas of your face and body where the skin is thinning or sagging, where there are age spots, wrinkling, or thin, empty tissue. A quantity of your own blood is collected and passed through a special process. This separates plasma containing a high concentration of blood platelets that are particularly rich in their ability to heal and restore. The plasma is then injected or through needling into the areas to be treated. Because a PRP injection is regeneration using your own cells, it is an excellent therapy to use as a component of increasingly popular combination therapy. In this way, it can strengthen the results of other anti-ageing treatments such as line and wrinkle relaxing injections and restoration of facial volume.
