PRP (Microneedling with Platelet-rich Plasma) (Vampire Facial)

4 Frequently Asked Questions About Vampire Facial

What is PRP (Vampire Facial)?

PRP is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing treatment provided at Medical Cosmetics in Nottingham. PRP is an advanced combination of micro-medical skin-needling and the patient’s own blood plasma that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin. The blood plasma is rich in platelets. These platelets have regenerative properties that aid in tissue healing, improve response to injury, and accelerate the formation of new cells. The platelet-rich plasma, when microneedled into the treatment area, results in the growth of new healthy tissue, stimulates repair, increases volume and rejuvenates the skin.

What can be treated?

PRP can significantly improve the appearance of:

Acne scars
Aged and sun damaged skin
Facial and decollete lines and wrinkles
Stretch marks

We normally recommend that your PRP (Vampire Facial) consists of a series of three procedures with approximately 4 weeks between them. However in some cases such as acne scarring it may require further procedures.

What happens during and after the treatment?

We use topical anaesthetic to numb the skin making the procedure comfortable. It will normally take up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work and 30 – 40 minutes for the procedure.

Then, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your body (usually from your arm). This sample of blood is then set into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components. This plasma is applied to the skin or the treatment area via microneedling to stimulate skin repair.

The microneedling medical device produces thousands of micro-medical needle-columns in the skin. Each column will penetrate into the dermis of the skin.

After the PRP treatment your body will start to naturally regenerate and repair the skin, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as new collagen is formed, new skin cells are generated and blood supply is enhanced. It can take up to 6 weeks before visible signs of regeneration and repair are seen and the process will continue over the following months, providing you with a natural and long lasting enhancement.

What can be expected after the treatment?

Immediately after your PRP Vampire Facial you will look as though you have moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after one to two hours and will normally recover within the same day with only slight redness the following day.
