Platelet Rich Plasma "The Vampire Facial"
Our blood contains growth factors and stem cells that can be utilized to enhance the development of collagen in our tissues. Orthopaedic surgeons have been employing this technology for many years now to improve the healing rate in joint surgery and many Sports Physicians have used it successfully in the treatment of tendonitis which have not responded to traditional therapies. We are now able to apply the technology to produce a younger skin with better texture and better tone. It can be used to improve the appearance of skin around the eyes and in the eyelids, removing most of the lines and sagginess. Other areas that will respond include the whole face, the neck skin and the décolletage area (around the upper chest) Basically, blood is removed from your veins and prepared utilizing a special technique to increase the concentration of platelets in the plasma which now carry extra growth factors and stem cells. Your own blood is then reinjected into the desired areas to improve the quality of the skin. There is no risk of rejection and the raw material is readily available.
