PRP therapy involves the separation of healing platelets from an individual's blood plasma, the platelets are then re-injected into the body. The treatment is meant to enhance healing and this skin rejuvenating therapy is also known as a Vampire Facial. PRP therapy was initially developed and used for musculoskeletal injury surgeries, both old and new.

Platelets, as a blood component, are the cells responsible for clotting. They stimulate a faster healing of open wounds by producing enzymes that help in tissue generation for repairing the damaged area. The method is the same process required for Vampire Facial. The platelet blood is administered onto the patient's face. The injections are made on specified parts to aid in skin renewal and healing by the production of collagen and skin cells. These factors help the skin to become more plump, firmer and youthful in appearance.


Before you start the therapy, you will have a consultation with our skin specialists to discuss your skin goals. You will talk about your medical history and whether you have had a facial treatment before. The therapy then consists of the following steps.

  • Preparation of the treatment area by doing a thorough cleaning
  • Marking the sectors that need treatment. The marks can be made with a pencil that is easy to wipe.
  • Drawing of blood - Your therapist will take about two syringes of blood from your arm.
  • Separation of Platelet Rich Plasma- the blood taken is held in a centrifuge for 10 minutes, which spins at high speed and separates platelets rich plasma from the rest of the blood content. The physician will induce the separated platelets with calcium chloride, which boosts the release of growth factors and increases collagen production once re-injected in the body.
  • Injection of PRP- the doctor injects the platelet-rich plasma on the marked area on the face.

For the process to work, it is best if repeated about three times but within a spaced period of about three months. Depending on an individual's skin, a one-time treatment can be useful for some. You can then relax as you wait for results. The growth cells that were stimulated by calcium chloride assist in the production of regenerative cells. The skin is tricked to feel like it has been injured and as a result, has to strive to heal fast by producing fresh tissue. You will start to see the results within few days, and after about two months, your skin looks fresh and rejuvenated. Some of the things that can be treatment by Vampire Facial include acne scarring, dark lines around the eyes and the mouth, dull or gray skin and sunburned skin. Taking care of your skin after PRP therapy is crucial. You need to hydrate and protect your face from sun burns.

The best thing about PRP therapy is that it comes from your body. For this reason, any person is fit for this treatment. However, it is not suitable for individuals with blood complications like blood cancer or anemia.
