What is platelet rich plasma therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy or better known as a vampire facelift is a procedure which involves blood being drawn from your arm and used on your face for many different health benefits. This treatment is used to stimulate cell repair, to give glowing, clear skin and also it is non-surgical. The very famous Kim Kardashian West was seen on TV having Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy treatment and talking about all of the health benefits.
What happens during the procedure?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy treatment starts off with 15 ml of blood being drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is then put into a centrifuge machine which separates the red blood cells, plasma and platelets. A small amount of the platelets are put on the face to act as a serum before the next part of the treatment. Small needles are used to inject more platelets into the skin.
Some people do not like the idea of blood being drawn so they opt for different methods. One of the methods that could be used is Derma rollers. A Derma roller is a device with loads of little needles; the roller is then rolled across the skin causing irritation and little wounds. The skin then recognises these little wounds and tries to heal them fat by producing new skin; this means any faint scarring will disappear. Chemical peels are another great option. Mild acids are used on the skin to exfoliate the dead skin away to give a youthful and healthy glow. A weird alternative treatment could be snails! Yes, snails, snail’s mucus is believed to have many different benefits for the skin. Apparently, it has healing agents as well as giving your skin a nice glow. Although these methods work for some, we believe that Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the best option as it is clinically approved and it gives amazing results.
