face_chin_02 PRP ‘vampire’ facial rejuvenation is a fast-growing celebrity facial trend, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – or ‘vampire’ – facial rejuvenation involves using the body’s own blood plasma, once it’s been enriched with platelets. The concentration of platelets in the plasma triggers several growth factors, which stimulate the healing of soft tissue by producing collagen and keratin.

PRP is produced by taking blood from a client’s arm, which is processed to increase its platelet count, and applied with a derma roller, using tiny needles to inject the plasma into the face. Benefits of the PRP facial include an improvement in skin tone, texture and colour, which very little recovery time. Results are also longer-lasting than other types of treatment, taking around three weeks to emerge, and lasting for up to two years.

Facial lines

Our facial lines deepen as we age, and our skin loses its natural elasticity. Everyone’s face is different, and lines reflect the different movements and facial characteristics of different people. They may include bunny lines – a horizontal wrinkled across the bridge of the nose – lines on the forehead, frown lines (glabella), crow’s feet and nasolabial and marionette lines (which run between the nose and mouth, or mouth and chin). There is also a range of different treatments available for them, including botox, a chemical peel and dermal fillers.

Conditions may include:

Bunny lines

A bunny line is a horizontal wrinkle which forms across the ridge of the nose, and we commonly have more than one bunny line. The lines become apparent as your nose moves.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are small wrinkles which appear around the eye, starting at the outer corner of the eye, and are often caused by sun exposure and smoking.

Dimpled/puckered chin

As we age and our face’s movements become more ingrained on our skin, puckers and dimples can appear around the chin area. Although facial movements cause them initially, over time they become deeper, and remain visible, even when the skin is in a relaxed state.

PRP facials

Q. How do PRP facials work?

A. Your blood is placed in a centrifiguation machine, where it’s effectively divided into different parts; we use the fluid that is rich in platelets to inject into your skin, where it helps to repair cells. A derma roller is used to make tiny pinpricks in the skin, where the blood then clots. It’s during this healing process that the skin receives a huge boost of platelets, remodelling the skin, reducing the effects of scars, and making your skin look brighter and more brilliant.

Q. Is it good for my hair too?

A. Yes. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the PRP treatment improves the blood supply to the hair follicles, helping the hair grow. Male pattern baldness is caused by the presence of DHT (dihydrotestosterone, a powerful sex hormone), which cuts off the blood supply to the follicles, resulting in their miniaturisation, which causes hair loss. PRP can increase the supply of blood to the follicles…
