The secret of the PRP Vampire Lift

Our blood plasma (PRP) contains active growth factors. The cells produce hyaluronic
acid, collagen and elastin in our skin.
A PRP treatment is rejuvenating from inside-out. It is an ideal treatment for anyone that
wants to improve the texture and ‘radiance’ of the skin using a natural method. A PRP treatment stimulates the production of collagen and healthy tissue growth in the body, which sets a natural skin improvement process in motion.
The end result is healthier, firmer skin that looks younger and more beautiful.

PRP Facelift: the treatment

Treatment using platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
1. The doctor extracts a small amount of blood.
2. This blood is centrifuged, so that only the enriched cells or blood platelets remain.
3. The platelets (PRP) are then injected into the skin using an extremely fine needle.
4. The enriched plasma now slowly but surely produces younger, firmer and tighter skin.
The treatment is completely safe. The major advantage of a PRP treatment is that you are treated with a natural body substance. It’s as natural as it gets!

Vampire Facelift – Frequently asked questions

Does it hurt?
Most patients experience the PRP vampire facelift as virtually painless. But if you wish, we can help you under intravenous sleep sedation. You will be fully asleep and do not notice the injections.

– What are the risks?

There is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP therapy because the enriched plasma has been produced from the patient’s own blood. A concentrated amount of white blood cells make up part of the PRP which are the body’s natural defenders against infections. Infections are therefore extremely rare.

– Are my red blood cells re-injected?

No. The red blood cells are separated from the platelets and only the enriched plasma (PRP) will be injected into your skin.
– How long does PRP treatment takes?
The actual procedure normally takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending upon the area’s being treated.

– When can I go back to work?

Some redness may be visible on the treated areas following the procedure and some minor bruising. These will disappear a couple of days after treatment.

– Do I need to repeat this treatment?

We advise 3 treatments initially with a gap of 6 weeks in between for an optimal result. After this, we recommend a yearly or bi annual repeat treatment to maintain the skin depending upon skin type.

Anaesthetic and Recovery

During the consultation with the doctor you decide which anaesthetic you want. The procedure lasts between 20 and 40 minutes and can be performed under local anaesthetic. If you prefer, intravenous sedation is also possible.
Following the procedure you rest for a while at hospital. A couple of hours later you can return home or to your hotel. Recovery is quick and you can already resume your normal daily activities a few days later.
