Vampire Facial + P.R.P
Updated: Jun 10, 2020
The Botany Skin Clinic offer the world-famous Vampire facial, a revolutionary innovation combining two treatment concepts for skin rejuvenation in one. The treatment has become famous after becoming popular facial treatment among celebrities. It is a combination of the effective Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP) and Micro needling (Dermapen4) treatments in one.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: Skin rejuvenation using your own cells. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) obtained from your blood contains platelets which work in the body to clog up cuts and tears. Platelets also have growth factors on the surface which stimulate collagen production when injected into the skin. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in many medical procedures over the years, and its safety is well established. Examples include wound healing, during joint surgery, etc. PRP has been used for facial rejuvenation since 2006 in the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia.Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves injection of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands, and neck. Known to some as the “vampire facelift”. It takes about 20 minutes for each treatment, and offers improvements for up to 18 months.
What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling: Dermapen 4 precision creates controlled micro injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing response which initiates the release of natural growth factors to improve collagen formation and cellular tissue. Collagen induction therapy assists in the rejuvenation of the epidermal integrity resulting in improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermapen 4 precision can effectively remodel scar tissue whilst maintaining the overall structure of the skin. Dermapen 4 can be used on all areas of the face and body and can treat a number of concerns.

Our specialist will assess the degree of skin aging, perform a simple skin analysis, and recommend a sensible treatment with reasonable outcome. Pre-treatment photographs are taken. Your skin is cleansed and prepared. Local anesthetic cream is applied for 30 minutes. Blood is taken from your arm and placed in a test tube which is then centrifuged. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then prepared and activated. Micron needling treatment will then performed after applying PRP topically on the treated area. The remaining of PRP can be then injected into any obvious lines or wrinkles.
