PRP FACIAL THERAPY
PRP LIQUID GOLD
What is PRP?
PRP is a concentrated plasma that contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. Growth factors are essential for tissue regeneration. PRP commonly used in wound healing. This is essential for stimulating tissue regeneration, providing scaffolding for collagen synthesis, skin renewal, and cell growth. PRP will accelerate the skin’s repair process which results in a thicker dermis with softer fine lines and wrinkles, less scarring and improved skin tone.
PRP has been played an essential role in sports medicine for several years prior to being introduced to aesthetic medicine. By stimulating collagen and elastin growth, the platelets can kick start the healing process. A favorite treatment for many celebrities around the world.
PRP rejuvenates the skin and hair. when combined with hyaluronic acid fillers, the results would be even better.

PRP/ VAMPIRE FACIAL WITH MICRONEEDLING
Vampire fascial is favourite anti-aging skin treatment for celebrities such
as Kim Kardashian, Ferne McCann and Bar Rafaeli.
PRP is applied topically onto the skin and microchannels created by the Microneedling device. The micro-pores created by the device stimulates the body to create new collagen and elastin as well as allowing deeper penetration of the PRP. Microneedling alone stimulates collagen in the skin to reduce the appearance of scarring. It is a collagen inducing treatment that harnesses the skin’s own power to naturally rejuvenate and repair itself when injured. For more information on Microneedling visit our page.
PRP & microneedling combination creates a beautiful end result and increases your cell turnover rate.
Using your own blood eliminates the risk of having adverse effects, another benefit of the PRP/Vampire facial.
You may need 3-6 treatments to achieve optimal results.
The PRP Vampire Facial provides natural, long-lasting effects. The longevity of these results depends on areas treated, as well as the condition of the client’s skin.
This procedure takes about an hour. We start by numbing the client’s skin for 30 minutes. A doctor draws a blood sample to start a centrifuge process, which separates the red blood cells from the Platelet-rich-plasma.
Once the skin is numb, the Microneedling treatment begins while PRP is simultaneously applied to the face.
This procedure has minimal downtime of around 2-3 days. Most patients will have redness, some swelling and mild discomfort.
When PRP is used for the under-eye area, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, or anywhere on the face, it stimulates mild inflammation that triggers the healing process. As a result, new collagen starts to develop. When the new collagen matures, it begins to shrink, tighten and strengthen the skin. Improvement in skin texture and tone is noticeable within 3-4 weeks. Whole collagen
regeneration requires 3-4 months.
PRP – UNDER EYES
PRP is one of the best treatments that reduce the appearance of under-eye dark circles and improves skin texture. When combined with hyaluronic fillers even better results are achieved.
PRP – HAIR LOSS
PRP is a powerful, natural way to promote hair growth on the scalp and hairline. This treatment is targeted towards both men and women who suffer from pattern baldness and thinning hair, but also for clients who want to thicken existing hair and encourage the growth of new hair.
PRP is injected multiple times under the scalp to stimulate hair production and thickness. This treatment takes about an hour. The patient will start to see an improvement to the treated area within 3 months after treatment and will also notice a reduction in the amount of hair being lost.
Within six months post-procedure, the hair will start to look and feel thicker.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PRP
WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injectable treatment by which a person’s own blood is used. Platelets are vital in the process of tissue healing, and the growth of new cells. PRP thereby promotes collagen production, regenerates the skin tissue, and essentially re-energizes your cells into rejuvenating themselves. The release of growth factors amplifies the healing process. PRP softens fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin, and improves skin tone and texture
HOW IS PRP ADMINISTERED?
The treatment of PRP involves a fraction of blood, collected or ‘drawn up’ from the individual patient into a syringe. The collected blood is then spun down in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet-rich plasma is then reinjected, and/or micro-needled back into the skin.
HOW LONG DOES A PRP FACIAL TREATMENT TAKE?
Typically, a PRP treatment takes between an hour to complete. This depends on if the PRP is administered through injections only, and/or micro-needled into the skin. This timeframe includes an additional 30 minutes for the blood to be drawn and spun in the centrifuge, and topical numbing to be applied.
DO PRP INJECTIONS HURT?
Some mild discomfort may be felt while the PRP is being reinjected. The sensation typically felt is a burning or tingling sensation. This sensation only lasts a few minutes after the PRP injected.We ensure our patients are comfortable throughout the entire PRP treatment and apply topical numbing cream and ice to aid any discomfort.

I’ve had botox, my results are amazing. The consultation was very thorough. Dr Matla made you feel relaxed as he explained everything. He asks you to take time to think so your plan is in your hands of what you require. A top up was offered if I wanted it after my 2-week check. My daughter an I have both had lip fillers on Friday both of us are extremely happy. I’d recommend Dr matla every time as I felt safe and cared for.
