Delight in plumper, more vitalised skin with PRP injections. YOUTH 4 YOU in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, provides PRP injections, or the Vampire facelift, to bring you another type of autologous facelift for incredible results.
Filling in where you’ve lost volume does depend on the level of injections you choose. PRP is a modern treatment that allows to use your own platelet-rich plasma. The platelets contain concentration of growth factors, which are very important in healing injuries.
PRP is a plasma with many more platelets than what is found typically in the blood. Therefore, the concentration of growth factors can be 5-10 times greater than usual. The regeneration of skin muscle and fat boosts visible and noticeable results, depending upon your age.
A few ml of the patient’s own blood are drawn using aseptic technique. The blood is then processed in a centrifuge machine, which separates the red blood cells from the rest of the plasma and the platelets. The heavy cells settle on the bottom of the centrifuge tube, leaving the lighter plasma and platelets on top.
The first few millilitres of this plasma are discarded and the rest of the solution is drawn in a syringe and then, using a fine needle and a cannula, the Vampire facelift is carried out using a series of injections. This procedure has to be carried out in the first few minutes, in order to increase the efficacy of the processed substance. It works by triggering localised inflammation, collagen production, and other region-rated processes. Most patients need to receive injections over the course of 6 months, which sets in the process of vessels and fibres, resulting in the tightness, repair, and strengthening of the damaged skin and tissue.
