Commonly publicized as the “Vampire Facial”, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a technique utilizing autologous (your own) platelet rich plasma which is rich in natural growth factors that are released by platelets and white blood cells to create skin rejuvenation. It can be used to improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance.
Your Azthetics practitioner will take a blood sample from your arm and spin down its products in a centrifuge. This allows us to extract only the growth factor rich segment of plasma for injection into the required areas using our U225 Mesogun. This is a painless way of delivering a rapid series of micro-injections to the skin, while simultaneously infusing it with platelet rich plasma.
It can be used with particular effectiveness for the under eye area, crepey areas of the neck and décolleté, and lines around the lips. This will result in a significant improvement in both skin texture and turgor. We would recommend approximately five 30 minute sessions for the best results but this will be something to be discussed with your Azthetics practitioner when developing your bespoke treatment plan.
