In the normal process of aging the skin becomes thin and experiences a loss of collagen. PRP or the ‘Vampire Facial’ can help stimulate the collagen rebuilding process and improve skin quality.
PRP or ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ is a process whereby blood is taken from the patient and processed through a centrifuge to extract the cells in the plasma that are high in nutrients and growth factors. This platelet rich plasma is then injected back into the treatment area both superficially and at a deeper dermal level for maximum effectiveness.
PRP is typically performed on the face, neck, hands, décolletage and in the treatment of hair loss, the improved tone, texture and thickness help to achieve a more youthful appearance. It can also be performed in the genital area for rejuvenation.
WHO WILL BE INJECTING?
Dr Ali Hussain is a skilled injector with over 15 years experience and you can be assured that at AH Cosmetic Clinic you will be injected by the doctor himself.
HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE A RESULT?
For best results it is recommended that you undergo three treatments of PRP each three weeks after the last. After your series of treatments have been completed, it takes approximately 3 months for you to see the result, however you can see a result much sooner in some circumstances.
If you are wanting a more immediate result, you may require a combination of treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers in conjunction with PRP to achieve your desired result. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles in your face, softening the look of your face, whereas dermal fillers are used to plump your skin and fill in deep wrinkles and lines, adding volume to your face. Common areas that may require a combination of treatments include the crease between your eyes and areas around your crow’s feet.
HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENT TAKE & WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
You should reserve approximately 45 minutes for this procedure as your blood will need to be prepared. You will require a consultation with Dr Ali Hussain to assess your suitability before injecting, the value of the consultation will be deducted from your final total on the day. The actual injecting usually takes less than 10 minutes.
You may experience some redness and swelling at the injection site post procedure. You are able to return to your normal activities immediately however you will not be able to wear make-up for the remainder of the day. You must also avoid hot showers and excessive sun for 24 hours after your treatment.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
As with any injectable treatment there is a small risk of short term redness, tenderness or bruising. As this treatment is performed using your own natural body products adverse side effects have not been recorded.
