PLATELET RICH PLASMA - VAMPIRE FACELIFT

Also known popularly as the “Vampire Facial”! It may sound scary but don’t be put off! The Otto Clinic is, in fact, the longest practising clinic of this technique in Ireland, having been the first to introduce it in 2006. After 10 years’ experience and hundreds of happy clients, we can say with certainty that this is the best non-surgical treatment to maintain a younger looking skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma Skin Rejuvenation

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) ?

This is a revolutionary treatment which harvests your own blood platelets to combat the signs of ageing. Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. (Studies have shown this technique to be highly effective in the treatment of skin wounds, particularly burns).

Upon injection into the skin, platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin. Most importantly, the growth factors contained in the plasma boost collagen production – the stimulation of collagen production results in new skin cells being formed and therefore an improvement in skin elasticity. Ultimately this creates a tightening effect on the treated area and enables patients to achieve a more beautiful, youthful skin.

HOW DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY WORK ?

Once the consultation and patient case study phase is concluded, a small amount of blood is taken and passed through a centrifuge system to separate the platelets and fibrin from the red blood cells – this concentrate, known as the matrix, is then injected into the areas to be treated.

Note the plasma remains alive in the treated area for approximately 7 days but the activity of the stem cells in the plasma continues working for about 3 months.

IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY SAFE ?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is the safest non-invasive procedure available in the market today because you are using cells from your own body therefore there can be no allergic reaction:

• It’s the only treatment of this type that can be injected right into the tear trough of the eye without fear of any adverse effects

• No surgery/no anaesthetic

• Completely safe and natural – no synthetic substances/no danger of allergic reactions or infections

• Walk-in Walk-out procedure – minimal disruption to your life

Above all, the treatment is virtually painless and patients can look forward to a fast recovery.

WHERE CAN PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY BE USED ?

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy can be used on the face, neck, hands and all over the body with excellent results: skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated; fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and skin contours are redefined to create a youthful, radiant bloom. It is hugely successful in the treatment of areas such as:

WHAT AFTER CARE IS NEEDED ?

Patient will experience slight swelling but this will usually disappear in 24 hours. In cases where patients are prone to bruising easily, slight bruising may be evident, but as with any other filler, this is easily covered with make-up.

HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY LAST ?

In cases where skin is not deeply wrinkled, follow-up treatments are recommended on an annual basis. In the case of damaged or quite wrinkled skin, a follow-up treatment is advised for 3 months later and thereafter on an annual basis.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY  ?

Because you are using cells from your own body, there can be no allergic reaction, therefore PRP is suitable for most people however if you have any concerns or specific medical conditions,  we will advise you during the pre-treatment consultation whether the procedure is safe for you or not.

Following consultation, the patient is advised on dietary changes required to aid the process e.g. increase intake of Vitamin C and water,and avoidance of stimulants such as coffee, alcohol and cigarettes. Patients will experience much more effective and satisfactory results if they follow these guidelines.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ?

No unnatural substances are used, therefore there is no danger of adverse/allergic reactions because you are using your own cells.

WHAT DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) THERAPY TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?


Prior to treatment, the patient’s skin is numbed with a topical anaesthetic and plasma is then injected into the Upper Dermis – the patient may experience a sensation of tiny pin pricks but feedback from clients indicates that this sensation is not at all uncomfortable.

TALK TO US!

“Just a quick text to thank you ​so so much Ita. I can't tell you the number of compliments I have gotten over the last two weeks on my skin.  It's been 8 weeks since I had the PRP done and I've never felt as confident.  As you know it was my treat to myself on hitting the big 40! The best money I have ever spent. Also, I loved the radio frequency done by Alison.  Thanks again.  P.S I've told all my friends”. - Olive, PRP & Radio Frequency patient, November 2016.
