Platelet Rich Plasma
Our body has an amazing ability to heal and regenerate itself naturally. Our blood consists of red cells, white cells and plasma. Red cells transport the nutrients to our organs. White cells fight the bacterias and viruses. Plasma contains all of the goodness we take in from food every day: minerals, vitamins and platelets. Your body uses platelets and growth factors, found in plasma, to initiate and control the healing process.
The Most Natural and Baseline Treatment – Vampire!
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
The moment you cut your skin, all you see is blood – those are red blood cells. After the bleeding stops, you’ll see a yellow bit “gluing” your skin together and that is our wonderful plasma.
During the infamous Vampire Treatment, Platelet Rich Plasma containing: platelets, minerals, vitamins and growth factors is used for the healing response to the damaged tissue which occurred either through the ageing process or any recent mechanical injuries / scars.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections improve your skin texture, colour, increases fibrin and collagen growth. The skin looks fresher, youthful and glowing.
After injection, plasma will be absorbed within 3 days. During this time you should not expose your skin to any strong chemicals. Over the next 3 to 6 weeks stem cells will work in your skin continuing visible repair and healing.
The process ensures visible results from one to one and a half years depending on your lifestyle. Repeated procedures will lay additional processes of growing collagen, fibrin and elastin on top of the first process. That ensures even better results.

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Procedure
After determining that the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is right for you, a small amount of your blood will be drawn, similar to having basic blood tests at your doctor’s office. This will then be used to prepare the PRP in a 15 minute process. During that time, the areas to be treated will be cleansed and prepared for the procedure.
Once this is done, the platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the skin to be treated. Serum received from poor platelet plasma (PPR) are then applied to these areas. The entire process typically takes no more than 35-45 minutes.
Effects decrease in heavy smokers or alcohol use.
