Vampire Facelift

As it is the season for Witches, Ghosts and Vampires why not get into the spirit and treat yourself to a Vampire Facelift (otherwise known as PRP injections) at Evolve Medical.

The Vampire Facelift or Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP) is so called because it involves taking a small amount of blood from the body and then injecting it back into the face.

When you have an injury, blood platelets and white blood cells promote healing.  PRP treatment takes the concentrated platelets from the blood and the growth factors induced by them and inject back into the body to jump start the heling process and promote healing.

The treatment gives fantastic anti-aging results and can create a more youthful, naturally fuller face and brighter skin tone.

A small amount of blood is taken (similar to having a blood test) from the patient and this blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the red and white blood cells from the plasma, which is the clear fluid part. The concentrated plasma is rich in platelets, which are the part of the blood with growth factors.  This plasma is then injected into the face to stimulate healing.

Because it is your own plasma that is injected the risk of infection and allergic reaction is very low.

PRP treatments have been used in the past to accelerate the healing of wounds and burnt skin and to help athletes recover from injury.

As a general rule to get maximum benefit 3 treatments at 4 weekly intervals are recommended and then once a year for maintenance.
