Did you know that your best defense against many skincare concerns can be found in your own blood? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an advanced aesthetic treatment utilising the healing properties of the patient’s own blood. Also known as the “Vampire Facial”, PRP London is suitable for treating a myriad of skin conditions. The skin can experience further rejuvenation when PRP is combined with our advanced SkinPen Microneedling treatment. Dr Hiba at Dermasurge has experience performing many PRP and SkinPen treatments with incredible results, for clearing the skin and even for boosting hair growth!


How Does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Work? 

Blood is a liquid composed of 55% plasma, 45% red blood cells, and less than 1% white blood cells and platelets. Plasma is the liquid portion of blood in which the blood cells and platelets are suspended as they pass throughout the body. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors which are vital for healing injuries, making them highly effective for treating many skin concerns. Before the treatment, a small sample of blood is taken from the patient which is processed through a system called centrifugation. Centrifugation extracts the nutrient-rich platelets and prepares them into an injectable solution which is administered to the treatment area. The powerful growth factors within the platelets encourage the skin’s natural healing processes, and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The result is a significant improvement in a number of skin conditions, including: 

  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Scarring
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Skin Laxity
  • Hair Loss 

PRP can provide amazing results for these skin conditions and more. It is suitable for treating the skin on the face, neck, hands, and even the delicate skin around the eyes. 


How Does SkinPen Work? 

SkinPen is the only FDA-approved microneedling device available on the market. SkinPen penetrates the skin barrier with tiny, sterile needles to induce the natural healing process. This creates hundreds of “micro-wounds” in the skin, resulting in the natural production of collagen and elastin proteins for plump, youthful skin. The natural healing process works to minimise lines and wrinkles, scarring, uneven skin tone, and improve the overall texture of the skin. 


Why Combine PRP with SkinPen? 

The SkinPen is effective for treating many conditions from fine lines to acne scarring. Microneedling stimulates a healing response within the skin, and PRP growth factors can aid this process for the ultimate rejuvenating results. PRP London can aid the skin to heal faster, reducing the duration of redness and inflammation following microneedling, and allowing results to be visible sooner.
