The PRP treatment for face is an anti-aging aesthetic procedure that has been getting more and more attention with a good number of people continuously gearing towards non-surgical options for eliminating the effects of aging. PRP facial has become one of the best choices for people who want a natural method of smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, improving the appearance of sun damage, and getting rid of acne, scars, and other things like dark circles under the eyes.
What is PRP Facial / Vampire Facial?
Sometimes called the Vampire Facial or Blood Facial, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) skin treatment involves taking blood from your body and separating the platelets with the help of a centrifuge machine, and then injecting these cells into your skin through microneedling device. This treatment uses the power of the patient’s own blood cells and provides the patient with natural beauty. It’s more of a medical treatment than a cosmetic one.
Vampire Facial is a fast aesthetic procedure and you can have it done in just a short time. It is also easy as well as a painless procedure so you do not have to worry about any discomfort. Since it’s a natural, pain-free, and fast non-surgical rejuvenation treatment, it has become more popular among people.
How much PRP facial cost?
One of the biggest benefits of vampire facial skin treatment is the fact that it is very affordable. A lot of people cannot get the younger looks they want because of the cost of cosmetic surgery. But with the PRP skin treatment, you do not have to spend a lot of money. This procedure is fast and easy and as such, is a very affordable option.
At the Longevita office in Central London, our team of experienced professionals has all the knowledge and experience needed to provide you with very top-notch service at an affordable cost. The PRP facial price begins from £400 at Longevita London. We also offer PRP facial treatments in Turkey. The cost for PRP facials in Turkey starts from £250.
Who can have a PRP facial and why?
The PRP facials stimulate the production of elastin and collagen which helps to tighten and thicken your skin if it is thinning. With this, your skin will naturally begin to look plumper, tauter, and younger. This elastin and collagen production also helps to smooth fine lines and get rid of wrinkles. Therefore, if you have no severe skin condition and are in fairly good health, you’re a good candidate for the PRP facelift.
It’s also proven that vampire facial is an excellent way to improve the general tone and texture of the skin. This treatment is especially beneficial to people who are suffering from skin conditions like acne scars or rosacea. Lastly, if you have an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation or fine lines, and wrinkles, you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
With the PRP facials, age does not really matter thus this procedure is not restricted to people of a particular age. However, if you’re a pregnant or breastfeeding woman, the PRP for face may be an unsafe procedure for you so you should hold on till you stop breastfeeding. Apart from these, the PRP for face does not have huge limitations and can be very successfully carried out.
What to think about before you have PRP facial?
The most important thing you should think about before the treatment is who’ll perform your PRP facial skin treatment. Although it’s a non-surgical procedure, it’s done with microneedling and the nerves in the face should be considered by the medical practitioner. Yet, the PRP liquid must be injected into the right places. Therefore, it’s crucial to find a doctor you can trust about the process.

How best to prepare for a PRP facial?
You shouldn’t take any blood-thinning medicines a week before your treatment as they may cause more bleeding than usual. Besides, you should avoid excessive sun exposure and shouldn’t use any anti-aging products, chemical peels, bleaching, and/or acne products.
On the day of the treatment, you shouldn’t wear any makeup and you should go to the clinic with your clean face. If acne shows up on your face, you should inform the medical practitioner beforehand.
What PRP facial involves?
There’s nothing better than using natural remedies to get rid of conditions. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is a natural, non-surgical treatment that works with the sample of your own blood. It is the platelet-rich plasma from your own blood that is re-injected into your skin. This treatment stimulates elastin and collagen production and helps you get back your youthful appearance. This treatment typically does not introduce harmful materials that may even have the potential to be harmful to you.
How PRP Facial is performed?
In the PRP treatments, a little sample of your blood is drawn in the clinic. Next, the doctor spins it in a centrifuge to extract protein-rich plasma that is, the platelets, also known as growth factors. Afterwards, the doctor runs a micro needle pen over your face, at the same time, pouring the platelets into the mini injection holes. These platelets normally have a high concentration of growth hormones and since the microneedling stimulates regeneration in the skin, the whole process is supposed to enable cell turnover.
How long does it take for PRP Facial to perform?
PRP Facial treatment can be done quickly. Not everyone has a lot of time on their hands to spare a chunk of a surgical procedure. With the PRP treatments, you do not have to spend too much time. This treatment is fast and easy and will get all done in no time. The entire process takes around 30 minutes.
Recovery and Results of PRP Facials
With the PRP treatments, recovery time is very short. The PRP for face does not typically come with a lot of difficult effects that would require a lot of healing. You may have some redness of the face but that normally doesn’t last long and will be off in no time. Plus, it doesn’t prevent you from going about your daily activities. Unlike the surgical procedures which take months to heal and would even require you to take time off work and your normal activities, the PRP facial comes with such a quick healing time and you do not have to deal with downtime.
The PRP facials provide long-lasting results and deliver these results only within a few weeks. After undergoing the PRP facial treatments, it would normally take up to four weeks to begin seeing results. However, when they do come, these results are long-lasting and can stay with you for about 12 to 18 months. Generally, just four treatments in a whole year are enough to get just the results you want. It’s recommended to continue getting PRP facial treatments to see the continued benefits.
PRP Facial Aftercare
The PRP facial treatment does require aftercare. However, since this treatment is done through microneedling, the patient may have small invisible wounds that s/he needs to be careful of. Patients who have just undergone PRP would need to pay attention to things like avoiding excessive sun exposure, staying away from alcohol, and avoiding blood thinners for up to 6 hours after the treatment. Besides, patients should be careful with the light scabs that may occur on the treated area in the post-treatment process and they shouldn’t pick these scabs. Lastly, they shouldn’t wear any wakeup for 4-5 days and shouldn’t use any skin care products that include chemicals.
It’s important to note that even though the PRP facials require some attention to aftercare, the aftercare required is not as cumbersome as for a traditional surgical procedure. Also, the aftercare required for PRP facials is short-lived and does not take months to be done with. With the PRP facials, aftercare is less tasking and short-lived. Nevertheless, you should pay attention to the aftercare process in order to get your desired results.
Side Effects to Expect After PRP Facial
There could be some minor side effects after PRP facial treatments. You may expect mild irritation, redness itching depending on how sensitive your skin is. Besides, mild swelling or oedema can be part of the recovery if the patient’s skin reacts to the injection. However, these are simple issues that can be easily handled. Lastly, you might need to endure minimal discomfort after PRP facials, but this does not last for very long.
What could go wrong after PRP facial?
The PRP for the face is a very safe treatment because it works with your own natural cells. This rejuvenation method provides you with a very safe and risk-free way to get your youthful-looking skin back. With the PRP facials, you do not have to worry so much about complications like an allergic reaction as this natural treatment is mostly free from any such events.
Although complications after PRP facial cosmetic treatment are very rare, you should know them before having the treatment. The PRP injections may have risks of infections, damage of tissues, or pain at the site of the injection. Choosing the right practitioner helps you have a risk-free treatment.
What to do if you have problems after a PRP facial?
Although the complications after PRP facials are too rare to occur, you should search for a clinic that offers aftercare services for the post-treatment process. At Longevita, we will be right by your side to support you a whole year after your PRP facial treatment so you can rest assured that you will not go through this journey alone. If you have any problems, you can book a free aftercare appointment with our dedicated aftercare team, send your pictures to us for doctor’s assessment or visit our London clinic.
Surgical Alternatives to PRP Facial Treatments
PRP facial therapy is beneficial for smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles, brightening the skin, and increasing elasticity by stimulating elastin and collagen production. Although this treatment is very helpful, there are a few surgical alternatives depending on the patient’s condition and expectations.
Severe lines and wrinkles, serious dark circles, and bags under-eye area can not be treated with PRP facial therapy. Therefore, you may look for traditional surgical alternatives to PRP facial. If you have severe lines and wrinkles, you may consider having lifting surgeries like facelift surgery, neck lift surgery, or eyebrow lift surgery. Eyelid surgery that treats sagging skin and removes the dark circles & bags under-eye area might be a better solution for you if you have droopy eyelids.
Other Procedures to Have with PRP Facial
You can combine your PRP facial with other non-surgical skin treatments depending on your expectations. If you’re looking for a solution to your skin texture as well as your sagging skin, you can have both PRP facial and dermal filler at the same time. The combination of these two skin treatments is called Vampire Facelift. Unlike vampire facial, both dermal filler and PRP are injected into the face. Vampire facelift makes the face brighten and look firmer, younger, and less wrinkled.
