‘VAMPIRE FACELIFT’ TREATMENTS IN MELBOURNE
What is platelet rich plasma (PRP)?
Autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections is also widely known as ‘Vampire facelift’ injections. PRP has been safely used by the medical industry to successfully treat tissue and joint injuries.
PRP was then adopted by the cosmetics industry to naturally reduce signs of ageing.
PRP or ‘Vampire facelifts’ involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, extracting stem-cell rich platelets from the blood and injecting it into ageing skin areas.
PRP is used to stimulate collagen production in your skin to reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone and restore skin to a more youthful looking state.
How long does PRP ‘Vampire facelift’ take?
The PRP Vampire facelift procedure takes no more than an hour. Our qualified nurse or cosmetic surgeon can prepare your platelets and administer the platelet treatment in one appointment.
Is PRP ‘Vampire facelift’ painful?
You may feel some discomfort when blood is extracted, just as you would experience when having a blood test.
Before we administer the stem-cell rich platelets, we provide you with complimentary numbing cream to minimise discomfort during the PRP ‘Vampire facelift’ procedure.
Can I return to work after a PRP ‘Vampire facelift’?
PRP injections are administered to numerous superficial areas on the upper-dermis. This means treated areas may appear red and we recommend a few days down-time. You can however, cover the PRP injection areas with some light makeup and return to work the same day if required.
How many PRP treatments do I need?
Generally speaking, we see optimum results when PRP ‘Vampire facelifts are repeated three times in the first year to 1.5 years of treatment. Results will vary thereafter depending on the speed which your skin ages, however the effects of plasma rich platelet injections may be effective for years before a top up is needed.
