PRP “Vampire” Facials | First Treatment - Before and After - Analysis

Join me as I demonstrate microneedling with PRP on a first time patient. This treatment uses your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth.

NOTES

In this video I demonstrate injecting PRP using manual injection as well as using a multi-pin injector. These techniques allow for the PRP to be injected in a more controlled way, which is why our lovely patient came out looking a lot less bloody then more famous outpatients.

Furthermore, I also insist on using anaesthetic cream as without, it will be a very painful experience.

Finally, something to note is that this treatment is complementary to other beauty treatments such as anti-wrinkle and fillers, which you will find work really well together.

PROCEDURE

To ensure patient comfort, local anaesthetic cream is applied on the face and left on for 45 minutes.

During this time, a few tablespoons of your blood will be taken in preparation for the procedure.

It is important to make sure you are well hydrated and have had something to eat before your session.

Once the blood has been collected, it is then transferred to special vials which are then placed in a centrifuge.

The centrifuge spins the blood very fast to separate the different components. Science is AMA..ZING.

Now that the platelets have been separated from the rest of the blood, they are extracted ready for injecting.

As the procedure involves a needle you will expect minimal amounts of bleeding and inflammation.

The main problem areas are targeted manually using a fine needle.

Manual injection is useful to allow for different pressures to be applied to different treatment areas.

A multi needle injector is then used to deliver the rest of the PRP to a larger surface area so that no single platelet is wasted. It’s your precious blood after all.

ANALYSIS

Looking at the before and after photos we can immediately see a dramatic reduction in the static fine lines that make up the wrinkles.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have softened with one of them completely disappearing.

Looking further down on the face, the length of the horizontal chin crease, well see for yourself, it’s halved in size.

3 days later, the inflammation had fully settled and the results were still apparent.

Fast forward 3 weeks and the results have regressed from it’s initial rejuvenation.

But looking closely we can see that there are still marked improvements from our starting point.

On the forehead we can see that the depth of the lines have reduced.

You will also notice that her nasolabial lines have also become softer in appearance, leaving less shadowing to the face.

And on the chin we can also see a reduction in the depth of the horizontal chin crease.

This makes the patient an excellent candidate for a second treatment of PRP for further rejuvenation.

Vampire Facials!

It’s the latest craze that has all the celebs signing up, from Kim Kardashian to Kylie Minogue. But what is it and how does it work?

The ‘Vampire facial’ uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which has been around for almost 20 years. PRP is used in a number of medical conditions such as hair thinning, muscle and tendon injuries, knee pain from osteoarthritis and of course for cosmetic purposes including the vampire facial.

In our blood we have a number of different cells including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Platelets contain clotting and growth factors which once activated, stimulate the inflammatory cascade and healing process.

Stay tuned for more treatment photos and videos.
