From Medical Marvel to Aesthetic Elixir: The History of PRP treatment for the face


PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma. It's a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of a person's own blood. The platelets are a type of blood cell and are rich in compounds that help tissue heal and regenerate. The 1980s marked a revolution in regenerative medicine as PRP therapy emerged as a vital tool for wound closure, inflammation reduction, and new cell growth. Its incredible regenerative capabilities didn't remain confined to medical usage; the aesthetic world quickly realised that PRP's power could reverse signs of aging. Though initially a best-kept secret in aesthetics, the PRP facial entered the limelight when Kim Kardashian unveiled her 'Vampire Facial,' earning it fame overnight.

Now, this luxurious experience isn't reserved just for celebrities; it's available to everyone at Dr Leah Clinic with PRP London and Essex treatments.

What is a PRP Facial?

Often termed as the 'Vampire Facial,' a PRP Facial offers more than just a mysterious name. It's a perfect antidote to a dull complexion, fine lines, wrinkles, and tired skin, acting like a 'reset' button that restores your skin's youthful radiance. The process involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, extracting the PRP, and applying it to the face during micro-needling. These controlled micro-injuries stimulate collagen production and allow for deep penetration of active ingredients. The result? A rejuvenated, healthier-looking skin that makes the minor discomfort and minimal downtime worth it.

Time it Right: Why Now is Perfect for PRP

Post-summer, your skin deserves pampering. The sun's relentless rays, though enjoyable, can leave behind skin damage, wrinkles, and pigmentation changes. PRP therapy, rich in growth factors, is a potent solution for such issues. With three sessions typically needed for full rejuvenation, starting your PRP treatments now ensures that your skin is at its best for festive celebrations. It's also the secret to flawless makeup application.
