Blood is collected from you in 1-2 specially designed tubes which are then centrifuged for 5-10 minutes. During centrifugation, a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other unrequired cells within the blood.
PRP is then ready for application by injection back into the skin.
Following the procedure, patients can resume normal activity almost immediately.
PRP treatment is suitable for:
The Vampire Facial at Newskin Beauty– involves the use of an ‘aerating’ MicroPen for micro needling or collagen induction therapy. A certified nurse uses the MicroPen to gently aerate the skin, and then topically applies serums or skin care products. The tiny micro perforations made by the MicroPen allow for easier absorption of serum, product or even your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP); hence the name Vampire Facial. The MicroPen has proven extremely useful in the treatment of skin scarring, acne, sun damage and a host of other skin care procedures
The Vampire Facelift is similar to an injectable filler but instead of injecting a substance like hyaluronic acid or collagen, the procedure involves withdrawing a bit of your own blood so that it can be processed to concentrate the amount of platelets and other elements vital in tissue building. This processed blood is then reinjected to achieve the same volume-boosting results that any other injectable filler achieves, making the skin smoother and reshaping facial contours.
Is it safe? Because PRP is derived from your own biological make-up, there is almost no risk of allergic reaction with the treatment. However, you do need to disclose all medications that you are currently taking, including herbs and supplements, to your doctor.
