Vampire Facelift
What is the treatment?

PRP “platelet rich plasma” is also known as vampire facelift. PRP is one of the best treatments, where nature’s natural healing process is utilised by mankind to its fullest. In this treatment a controlled injury is given by different different means (usually derma roller, MNRF, fractional laser and derma pen) on the face, then platelets (separated form your own blood) are injected in the injured area which induces healing because of which a lot of collagen and elastin is formed in the skin thus making this procedure effecting and long lasting.

Why do we need this treatment?

This is one of the best treatment to slow down ageing, reduce fine lines, acne scars, chickenpox scars. One can also opt this treatment for skin tightening, improving dull skin and uneven skin tone. In this treatment a controlled injury is given which produce new collagen tissues which in return giving a new life to the treated areas. Thus leaving the skin glowing and healthy looking.

How frequently should it be done?

PRP should be done once in a year. And can be done depending upon the needs of a person or as advised by the dermatologist.

Things to Know

PRP is a wonderful treatment and has a long-lasting effects.

Some of the indications are:-

  • Open pores
  • Dull Skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Pigmentation
  • Redness or increased sensitivity
  • Fine lines
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Broken capillaries

  • Anti-ageing.

PRP can be done to both male and female and age is not specified but it should be done at the age group of 18 and above

If there is any injury or cut on your skin it can be healed by forming new collagen tissue in your skin on its own.

We follow the same mechanism in PRP. We numb your face and give you a controlled injury on your face this injury can be healed by forming new collagen tissues and then inject the plasma which we get from your blood.

It is quite safe procedure if and only done under supervision of a dermatologist.

PRP has no side effects. One can have redness and swelling for 3-4 days after the procedure. Otherwise its a very safe and effective treatment.

As we know PRP is a collagen induction treatment, it induces synthesis of new collagen in the skin and also improves blood circulation in the skin thus reducing the signs of ageing in the skin. So whatever benefit we are going to get out of one session is going to persist but ageing is an ongoing process so some of the collagen will breakdown with time as a part of ageing process. In order to continue the benefits one can get the session repeated as recommended by the dermatologist.

Though PRP is a safe procedure. Still one must follow few precautions

  • One should regularly use sunscreen while going out in the sun.
  • One should keep the hydration level of the skin good by applying moisturisers and drinking a good amount of water in a day
  • One should not use very heavy make up on the same day.
According to Dr Ruchi Agarwal, MD, a renowned dermatologist with almost 2 decades of experience in the field of dermatology, this is one of her favourite treatments, as this treatment gives a long lasting effects, and has no side effects. Just one session of PRP treatment is enough to see the results. The skin feels soft supple & rejuvenated after the treatment.
Yes, PRP can be combined with other non-invasive and invasive treatments.
No, makeup cannot be applied soon after the treatment as it can cause some allergic reactions but later the patient can apply mild makeup.
No, PRP does not make your skin treatment but you should take of your skin by applying sunscreen and moisturiser. In fact PRP treatment can be used to reduce the sensitivity of the skin in many cases like cases of Steroid Induced Facial Dermatosis (SIFD).
Down time of PRP is 2-3 days
Yes there is slight pain in the PRP procedure. But numbing cream is applied before the procedure which makes it very convenient for the patients. At Satya we use a special numbing technique to make the patient’s experience even more comfortable. It really helps a lot as far as results are concerned, because proper numbing is must before the procedure. At some places people do it without proper numbing and thus to minimise the pain part, they don’t do the actual procedure. Every single step one has to be very precise and the depth of injections also matters a lot for perfect results. That is the reason why people get results at Satya in just one session, which they don’t get at other clinics even in 5-6 sessions.
Duration of 1 session is 1-1 1/2 hour.
PRP is a very good and effective procedure. It can be done on face and scalp. PRP can also be done for under eye circles, scars & stretch marks at different body sites. It can also be done on the hands & neck area Especially the areas which are exposed to sunlight & show signs of ageing.
PRP (platelet rich plasm) as the name suggest is a very good treatment and has to be performed under supervision by dermatologist. And in parlour the treatment done are generally superficial and the products used in parlours are harmful as bleaching agents are used. At some parlours they claim that they are doing PRP. This should be avoided and the treatment should always be done under supervision of a dermatologist.
