Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy


We offer Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy treatment from our clinics in Glasgow and London.

The Vampire Facelift

Platelet rich plasma therapy – or PRP for short – is a new technique that is being used in regenerative medicine to treat a number of problems including slow healing wounds, bones and tendons. More recently, PRP has been used to regenerate the skin as a method of skin rejuvenation.

What Is PRP Therapy?


The blood that circulates around our body contains three main parts. The red blood cells carry oxygen to our tissues whilst the white blood cells help us to fight off infection. The plasma is the liquid part of the blood that carries the cells around.

The plasma also contains platelets and growth factors that are the first part of any healing or regeneration response. PRP therapy aims to isolate these platelets and growth factors and use them to help regenerate the skin and restore a more youthful complexion.

How does it work?

During the treatment a sample of blood is taken from the arm.

This is then placed in a centrifuge so that the layers of blood separate. The platelet rich plasma is then extracted and injected back into the face in the areas where tissue regeneration is desired.

How many treatments are required?

When PRP was first introduced a single treatment was all that was recommended.

More recent research would suggest that a course of three treatments spaced 4 weeks apart probably delivers the best results.

Can you combine it with other procedures?

PRP is an ideal procedure to combine with other treatments, particularly fractional laser skin resurfacing.

A recent study showed that combining PRP with laser resurfacing resulted in better results than either procedure alone. Combining PRP and fractional laser resurfacing in a single session is ideal for people who do not want to have the inconvenience of having multiple treatment sessions.
