PRP. What is the vampire facelift and does it work?

Hoping to reduce your facial lines and wrinkles? If you don’t want surgery, you’ve got other options. 

This newly offered technology, called platelet rich plasma (PRP) is using important components of patient’s own blood to naturally promote the production of collagen and growth factors to the treated area. Dynamic Regenerative Medicine Solihull is offering these platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments. 

PRP is a non-invasive, organic treatment, originally approved for tissue healing, and is now giving dermatology patients a new option in skin treatment, hair loss treatment and injury / pain treatment. 


A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and spun down where the plasma is separated from the red blood cells. Then the platelets are activated and injected or applied to the treatment area. Platelet rich plasma is being used in addition to micro needling, which is a hot topic in dermatology and skin care. Platelets are the body’s tool to heal and regenerate cells. When used on your skin these platelets stimulate natural the production of collagen. When released they promote skin turnover; they promote wound healing … all the good stuff. So it’s used pretty much in every branch of medicine these days. 

PRP is widely used for cosmetic reasons like to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and to grow hair loss via stimulating follicles. Poling says that the addition of PRP to mirconeedling is giving patients a 30-40 percent improvement in results. 

For best results, you will need one or for treatments about 1 month apart.  Overall, most patients notice better skin tone, skin-tightening and volume after these treatments. What you should know about PRP

The PRP procedure is safe for almost everyone, except for those with clotting conditions that require blood thinners or those with other blood-related health issues. With any cosmetic procedure it is important to stress the importance of setting realistic expectations for the results of nonsurgical treatments like PRP. Also, when skin is quite loose or has extreme sun damage, noninvasive treatments may not produce a dramatic improvement. You would likely do better with surgery instead. Find out more visit
