The Vampire Facelift at The London Cosmetic Clinic
Published on: July 10, 2017
At the London Cosmetic Clinic in Knightsbridge we love staying on top of all the latest trends in the world of beauty and skincare so we can deliver the best treatments and products to you. One such treatment, enjoyed by celebrity Kim Kardashian, is our “Vampire facelift” which involves using the client’s own blood to help make the skin look and feel younger.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or a “Vampire facelift” is used in other areas such as sport medicine to improve wound healing and utilises the growth factors in blood platelets. The treatment is non-invasive, scalpel free and is completely chemical free. A small amount of blood, usually between 40ml to 360 ml, is removed from the client and then treated in centrifuge, so is spun around at an extremely fast pace until the blood separates into is components. At our clinic, we use the Angel PRP system to separate the concentrated platelets from blood. The system is one of the most latest advanced machines that could process much more amount of blood than the other system which could process only 10-40 ml, and as a result provides more amount of platelet rich plasma. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected into the chosen areas and the growth factors in it encourage the cells surrounding that area to multiply in number, so the skin appears plumper and more volumised and collagen product is encouraged. As well as improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment can also effectively help promote hair growth and reverse minor scar damage and other skin imperfections.
The treatment takes between 60-90 minutes and prior to this we will remove any makeup, use an antiseptic wipe to minimise any risk of infection and apply a topical numbing agent. We advise that you stay hydrated and eat well before your appointment so that it is easier for your blood to be withdrawn. The treatment can be used over the body, including the décolletage, backs of hands and knees, as well as your face and at your consultation we can discuss what areas you would like treated and determine how many sessions you will require.
