Platelet-rich plasma (vampire lifting)
Platelet-rich plasma is a preparation resulting from the treatment of the patient’s own blood. This blood is collected during the visit using a special treatment kit. In the next phase, it is centrifuged and separated. The plasma prepared in this way can be administered to the patient.
What is the purpose of spinning?
In combination with separation, it allows plasma to be concentrated so as to obtain the highest concentration of platelets in it.
Plasma improves the process of tissue regeneration and the production of new blood vessels. It activates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and improves the work of stem cells.
Often, platelet-rich plasma is used in combination therapy with laser therapy to enhance the skin remodeling effect and accelerate healing.
Indications for the treatment
In aesthetic medicine, the so-called Vampire lifting works well when the patient:
- needs to eliminate the signs of skin aging (e.g. wrinkles, folds, sunken skin)
- observes skin fatigue, lack of tension and elasticity, loss of radiance, flaccidity
- suffers from male pattern baldness
Plasma therapy provides a clear renewal and regeneration of the skin. In addition, it smoothes wrinkles as well as improving skin firmness.
Effects of the treatment:
- revitalization of the skin, smoothing and unifying the skin tone, improving elasticity, tension and density of the skin
- reconstruction of collagen fibers
- smoothing wrinkles
- acceleration of healing processes after aesthetic medicine treatments
- elimination of skin alopecia
How it looks
The treatment – like all medical procedures – is preceded by a medical consultation, during which the whole process is explained step by step. The patient also informs the doctor about his health problems to perform the procedure.
The therapy involves collecting the patient’s blood (approx. 5-20 ml). In the next phase, erythrocytes and leukocytes are separated from the plasma containing platelets. This is done in a specially prepared centrifuge. The platelet-rich plasma obtained in this way is the basic preparation on which the performed procedure is based. It can be successfully applied locally (like classic mesotherapy) or linearly (along wrinkles and folds). The treatment can be used on various parts of the body.
For maximum comfort of the patient, anesthesia is usually applied by covering the treatment site with an anesthetic cream. In some cases, dental anesthesia is used.
Treatment time with platelet-rich plasma
The treatment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes.
Duration of effects
The effects of treatments performed with platelet-rich plasma in a series of 3 repetitions last up to about 12 months.
Convalescence period after surgery
In a few rare cases, slight swelling, pain, itching, bruising or discoloration and sensitivity to pain may occur after the procedure.
However, these symptoms appear so rarely and disappear within a few days that it is not worth worrying about them. Immediately after the procedure, some patients experience local swelling, which subsides within 4 hours.
In the vast majority of cases, patients can return to their daily activities the day after the procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
by our patients
Platelet-rich plasma is used to accelerate wound healing, smooth scars, regenerate periodontal tissues and rebuild bone tissue. It also reduces the appearance of signs of skin aging.
What are the recommendations immediately after performing the platelet-rich plasma? Since platelet-rich plasma is an injection procedure, after its completion, you should avoid clusters of bacteria, including contact with animals, try not to touch the skin too much, and prepare a fresh pillowcase for sleeping at home.
Is the procedure painful? The treatment is very well tolerated by patients. There may be some soreness after the procedure, which disappears spontaneously. It should be noted that after the administration of PRP platelet-rich plasma, you should not take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
After completing the form, we will respond within 60 minutes during the clinic’s working hours.
