PRP – Vampire Facial
PRP facial (which you may have heard referred to as a ‘Vampire Facial’ or ‘Vampire Facelift’) involves withdrawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, spinning the blood in a machine called a centrifuge in order to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the red and white blood cells, and then re-injecting the platelets into the patient’s face to produce brighter and smoother skin. It’s a non-surgical treatment that relies on the body’s own, natural healing powers resulting in a refreshed, firmer and more youthful appearance.
Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors that help heal injured tissue and damaged skin. PRP techniques are also widely used for sports injuries and orthopedics. We inject platelets into targeted locations, allowing the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved in PRP Treatment?
Our Aesthetic Nurse from London Real Skin will first assess your skin, seek to understand your expectations and skin goals, provide a treatment plan, and take ‘before’ photographs.
Once the treatment has been explained, your skin will be cleansed and a small amount of blood will be drawn and centrifuged. Once prepared and activated, the platelets will be injected into targeted areas on your skin, in particular into fine lines, wrinkles, and around areas of particular concern in terms of scarring or pigmentation.
From start to finish, the treatment takes a total time 30 minutes.
While patient’s are welcome to enjoy just one treatment, we most often recommend three sessions, spaced four weeks apart. This will ensure maximum, long-lasting results.
