WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA TREATMENT AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO DERMAL FILLERS?

PRP Treatment essentially involves extracting a small amount of blood from the patient and specially treating it before injecting it back into whichever area requires attention. It is often used for cosmetic purposes, but it has also been used in dentistry and reconstructive surgery.

This special treatment has proven very popular and has received some high profile celebrity endorsements. Kim Kardashian led the way in 2013 and since then numerous other celebrities have undergone the treatment. This has made PRP Treatment a very common choice for those looking into anti-ageing options.

Certain other injectable anti-ageing treatments are known as dermal fillers. These can be either temporary or permanent and generally use solid material injected into the skin to remove wrinkles or creases and to plump out the lips. These injections are generally administered directly into the area the patient wants to change, show their results quickly, and only affect that one relatively small part.

The Vampire Facial, however, has the advantage over other treatments as it offers rejuvenation of the whole face and lasts far longer than many dermal fillers. It is considered to be a safer option, with there being little risk of infection as the treatment uses your own blood. There is also the bonus of PRP Treatment showing its results slowly over weeks and months, and this way offers a more discreet form of treatment instead of the overnight transformation many dermal fillers provide.
