The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedure is quick, easy and non-invasive. To begin, a medical professional will draw your blood. The PRP is then prepared by separating platelets from Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP), red blood cells and granulocytes via centrifugation. Next, the PRP is collected and applied to the treated site via micro needling or injections.

The Vampire Facial that consists of PRP and micro needling is aimed to stimulate the body’s own collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity. By creating micro injuries to the skin and applying the PRP, it appears firmer, younger and smoother. 

The science behind the Vampire facial and the PRP scalp injections for hair loss is in the growth factors and other molecules released by the platelets upon activation. These growth factors are regeneration-promoting signalling molecules, such as Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor group (TGF), Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) and others. These molecules are shown to regulate the healing cascade, including inflammation and cell proliferation.

The recommended number of treatments is three treatments at least spaced one month apart.
