Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial rejuvenation, also known as a “vampire facial,” is a procedure that uses the healing properties of a patient’s own blood to improve the texture and appearance of the skin. The treatment aims to stimulate collagen production, enhance skin elasticity, and reduce the signs of ageing.


In aesthetic medicine, PRP is commonly used for:

  • Facial Rejuvenation: PRP can be injected into the face to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases.
  • Hair Restoration: PRP is injected into the scalp to promote hair growth and improve the thickness and quality of existing hair.
  • Acne Scarring: PRP may be used to enhance the healing process and improve the appearance of acne scars.


Here’s an overview of how PRP facial rejuvenation is typically performed:

  • Blood Collection: A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, usually from the arm, similar to a routine blood test.
    Centrifugation: The collected blood is then processed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets and growth factors from the rest of the blood components.
  • PRP Preparation: The concentrated platelets, growth factors, and other bioactive proteins are collected to create PRP.
  • Facial Treatment: Before the PRP is applied, the patient’s face is usually cleaned, and a topical numbing cream may be applied to minimise discomfort. The PRP is then applied to the face, either through injection or micro-needling.
  • Injection Method: PRP may be injected into specific areas of the face using fine needles. This is often done in areas where volume and rejuvenation are desired.
  • Micro-needling Method: PRP can also be combined with micro-needling, a procedure that creates small, controlled injuries to the skin to stimulate collagen production. PRP is applied topically during or after the micro-needling process.

What to expect?

  • Recovery: There is typically minimal downtime associated with PRP facial rejuvenation. Patients may experience redness, swelling, or mild bruising at the treatment areas, but these effects are usually temporary.
  • Results: Over time, as the skin undergoes the natural healing process, patients may notice improvements in skin tone, texture, and overall appearance. Collagen production stimulated by PRP contributes to a more youthful and revitalized look.
