Platelet Rich Plasma (also know as the vampire facial) is a revolutionary natural method of skin regeneration using ingredients harvested from a vial of your own blood. By concentrating the blood’s stem cells and growth factors, as well as platelets, we maximise its regenerative potential.

A platelet rich plasma treatment, or ‘Dracula Face Lift’ is not nearly as scary as it sounds. Using revolutionary scientific technology, this incredible method of skin regeneration has very few rivals in the aesthetic industry. For a healthy, naturally glowing complexion, a platelet rich plasma treatment is your go-to.
By concentrating ingredients found in your own haemoglobin – such as the blood’s stem cells, growth factors and platelets – and injecting them back into your skin, we can plump, smooth and restore problem areas, such as hollowing, wrinkles and scars. Small injections using very fine instruments deposit your natural regenerative cells back into the skin to repair damage, and are particularly transformative around the eyes, neck, decolletage and hands. Platelet rich plasma treatments are also effective in restoring hair growth, and we often perform the treatment on the scalp to regenerate hair follicles. The treatment works via DNA repair and provides an improved blood supply to damaged areas of the skin, to help promote new collagen formation.
Dr Julia Servi has many years of experience performing this treatment safely and effectively, to produce subtle yet outstanding results. While 2-4 treatments may be necessary, the anti-aging results of a platelet rich plasma treatment last up to two years. This somewhat daunting commitment to skin health is undoubtedly worthwhile for those searching for naturally beautiful, long-lasting rejuvenating effects.
Once injected into your skin, these substances will accelerate the normal healing process and reverse damage via DNA repair improved blood supply and new collagen formation, giving long-lasting rejuvenation. This natural treatment is administered by small injections to the face, around the eyes, neck, décolletage or hands to plump lackluster skin, smooth wrinkles, replace volume and heal scars. When injected into the scalp it promotes hair regrowth. It can also be used in conjunction with Medical Skin Needling to give extra collagen stimulation.
Everyone reacts differently but generally the treated area can be bruised and swollen for 24-72 hours, so a couple of days of social downtime can help.
Depending on skin health and age, 2-4 treatments may be required and results generally last up to 2 years, although and annual top-up generally maintains results. We think the results are beautiful yet subtle and well worth the effort.
We particularly recommend this treatment as a healthy, natural looking longer term solution.
