PRP facial London is an anti-ageing 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 skin aging. PRP treatment for the face has become one of the best choices for people who want a natural solution to smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, improving the appearance of sun damage, and getting rid of acne/acne scarring, 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 red blood cells from your body and separating the platelets with the help of a centrifuge machine and then injecting these cells into your skin through a micro-needling device. Its popularity can be attributed to the proteins and growth factors that give it its wound healing property. According to research, platelet-rich plasma can make the skin of the face tight and firm. PRP facial London is a quick aesthetic procedure for facial rejuvenation. It is also painless, so you do not have to worry about any discomfort.
How Much PRP Facial London Costs?
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 youthful appearance 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. Although you can get it for cheaper in Turkey, by getting it in London you’ll save costs on travel, hotels, transfers, and food. In addition, the clinic is going to be nearer your home, so you can easily reach it, without having to spend as much on transport.
Who Can Have a PRP Facial London and Why?
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.
This treatment is especially beneficial to people who are suffering from skin conditions like acne scars or rosacea. It is also used for treating scar tissue. Lastly, if you have uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation or fine lines and wrinkles, you’re a good candidate for this treatment.
With the PRP facial London, age does not really matter. Thus, this procedure is not restricted to people of a particular age. However, if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, the PRP for face may be an unsafe procedure, so you should hold on till you’re done breastfeeding. Apart from these, the PRP for face does not have huge limitations and can be carried out very successfully.

What to Think About Before You Have PRP Facial London?
The most important thing you should think about before the treatment is who will perform your PRP facial London skin treatment. Although it’s a non-surgical procedure, it’s done with micro-needling, which can affect the underlying facial nerves. Experienced medical practitioners take this into consideration. In addition, they have to make sure that the PRP liquid is injected into the right places. Otherwise, you will end up unsatisfied with the results. Therefore, it’s crucial to find a doctor you can trust.
You need to ask the practitioner about the number of facial PRPs they have done and for how many years they have been in practice. In addition, you should ask what board they’re registered with and what’s their specialization. Before making your decision, you must be aware of all the risks and complications of the procedure, so ask about that. In general, you need to know about their complications and success rates. Also, check out the patient portfolio of the practitioner.
How Best to Prepare for a PRP Facial London?
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-ageing 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 a clean face. If you have an active acne flare-up, you should inform the medical practitioner beforehand.
What PRP Facial London Involves?
In the PRP treatments, a little sample of your blood is drawn in the clinic (equal to the amount taken in a blood test). After spinning the blood in a centrifuge, the doctor extracts the protein-rich plasma – the platelets containing growth factors. Afterwards, the doctor runs a micro-needle pen over your face while pouring the PRP into the small puncture holes.
These platelets normally have a high concentration of growth hormones, and since the micro-needling stimulates regeneration in the skin, the whole process is supposed to increase cell turnover. The entire process takes around 30 minutes.

Recovery and Results of PRP Facials
You may have some facial redness after the PRP facial London, but that won’t last long and will be gone in no time. It won’t restrict 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, the PRP facial recovery is pretty quick and easy.
After undergoing the PRP facial treatments, it would normally take up to four weeks to begin seeing results. These results are long-lasting and can last for as long as 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 London treatments to see the continued benefits.
PRP Facial London Aftercare
Patients who have just had 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 form on the treated areas in the post-treatment process. These scabs should not be picked. Lastly, they shouldn’t wear any makeup for 4-5 days and shouldn’t use any skincare products that include chemicals.
Side Effects to Expect After PRP Facial
You may expect mild irritation, redness, and 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. Lastly, you might need to endure minimal discomfort after PRP facial London, but it gets better after some time.
What Could Go Wrong After A PRP Facial?
PRP for the face is a very safe treatment to attain youthful-looking skin. Because it uses your natural cells, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction.

Surgical Alternatives to PRP Facial London Treatment
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. The effectiveness of this treatment is very high, but a few surgical alternatives may be necessary depending on the patient’s skin condition.
PRP facial London therapy cannot treat severe wrinkles, dark circles, or bags under the eyes. For these reasons, you should consider traditional surgical alternatives. If you have severe lines and wrinkles, you may consider having lifting surgeries like facelift surgery, neck lift surgery, or eyebrow lift surgery. If you have droopy eyelids, then eyelid surgery that treats sagging skin and reduces dark circles and under-eye bags would be a better option for you.
Other Procedures to Have with PRP Facial London
You can combine your PRP facial London 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 facials, both dermal filler and PRP are injected into the face. Vampire facelift makes the skin look brighter, firmer, younger, and less wrinkled.
