Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy at JR Medical in Southend-on-Sea, Essex

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (or PRP) is a natural skin rejuvenation treatment, used to stimulate the inflammatory process in order to help and heal the body from the process of ageing.

Why it's called the "Vampire Facial"...

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (or the "Vampire Facial") involves taking a sample of your blood (which can be approximately 10-20ml, depending on how many tubes is recommended) which is then centrifuged to seperate the plasma and platelet portion of the blood through the use of a separator gel.

The obtained PRP portion of your blood is then injected back into the problem areas of your skin which have been anaesthetised during the treatment. This procedure will locally stimulate new collagen production and revitalise your cells to encourage them to rejuvenate themselves by your blood components.

As this Platelet Rich Plasma therapy procedure uses your own blood (and nothing else!), it is very safe. Bear in mind that this treatment is particularly effective for treating very fine and thin lines, thinning skin, tear trough or hollowness under the eyes, hand and decolletage treatment and hair loss or hair regrowth treatment.

PRP builds tissue over time, whereas traditional filler breaks down over time. A combination of PRP, Dermal Fillers and Microneedling would provide the optimum result.

Initially, a course of three Platelet Rich Plasma therapy sessions is recommended within a 4-6 week interval.
