Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy Injections
PRP is an advanced aesthetic treatment method that harnesses your bodies own natural power to heal itself. When used on the face is is often called the vampire facial because it involves drawing your blood.
Your blood is made up of four primary components: red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets.
When the platelets in the plasma are concentrated, magic happens. To achieve concentrated levels of platelets in plasma, all four components of your blood are separated by density. Then, the platelets are injected into the plasma, excluding the red and white blood cells.
The concentrated platelets found in PRP contain growth factors that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the healing process.
Its the liquid portion of the blood and it usually contains 90% water and 10% of other substances like sugar, nutrients, proteins, and other fats. Plasma helps move blood cells along with clotting factors, antibodies, and other chemicals throughout the body to maintain norma; blood ph levels.
Platelets, or thrombocytes, contain growth factor components and nutrients that help in wound healing. When the body is scarred or injured, platelets will gather at the site to cover the injury by blood clotting and encouraging blood coagulation to prevent blood from leaking
How Does PRP Work?
Platelets contain growth factors. These growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturisation of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.

The Vampire Facial
Course of three £500
A PRP facial, also known as a vampire facial, is an advanced treatment method that harnesses your own body’s natural power to heal itself.
It’s often called a vampire facial as it involves drawing your blood. In the context of anti-aging, platelet-rich plasma is either injected into your skin at specific depths according to your aesthetic needs or the “blood” is spread on top of your face during treatment.
Eventually, the PRP is absorbed by your skin. This cuts the recovery time from microneedling down to zero while speeding along the collagen production process
