Scott Moore (founder of Great Directions) explains how our PRP for the Face Treatments work (aka the Vampire Facial).
Each PRP for the Face Treatment is performed by qualified, experienced and certified staff and requires approx 60mins for each visit.
Remember, PRP is made exclusively from your own blood supply. Therefore, making sure your blood is nutrient rich and with minimal toxins, will ensure the PRP that is used at every treatment is strong. We recommend patients INCREASE their consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, and to AVOID the consumption of processed foods, alcohol, all forms of smoking and caffeine. If you are consuming any other medication please contact us to see if it poses any issues. Please do not attend the clinic with any make up on. Attending the clinic with recently cleansed and exfoliated skin will enhance your results.
When you arrive at the clinic. You will be greeted by a Great Directions staff member will provide you with a consent form that will need to be filled in. Once this has been completed, we will take some photos of your face to track your progress. These photos are strictly private and confidential, we rely on these images to track the progress of your treatment.
A thorough review and assessment of your face and skin is performed and additional photos may be taken to document any observations that we identify. We will perform a deep exfoliation of your face then a low strength + custom made local anaesthetic gel is then applied to the treatment area. We then allow you to rest whilst the local anaesthetic gel starts to work. After approximately 20-25mins, we will remove the local anaesthetic and prepare the treatment area by thoroughly cleansing your scalp.
A Registered Nurse or Qualified Pathology Collector will then extract a small amount of blood from your arm. Our staff are extensively experienced at blood/pathology collection. Once the blood is collected, it is placed into a centrifuge, this will separate the red and white cells from the platelets and the plasma. The yellow liquid that is produced is the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
Using a single use skin needling device, the therapist will create a controlled injury to the treatment area, remember the face has been localised with topical local anaesthetic. By doing this step, the body will send platelets to the area to repair the injury caused by the skin needling device. We do not reuse our skin needling devices, 100% of the needles are single use and disposed of after use every time.
The PRP is carefully extracted from the centrifuge and is then carefully injected using an extremely fine needle. All care is taken to ensure patient comfort and an even distribution across the treatment area.
The PRP has been injected at very shallow depths. Therefore to ensure it remains in the treatment area, we apply a certified organic gel to assist with healing the treatment area following the injections, whilst also “locking in” the PRP that we just delivered. We recommend washing the treatment area at least 6-8 hours after finishing the treatment. Applying our take home serums (hyaluronic acid $30 for 30mL and certified organic aloe vera gel $20 for 50mL) will speed up recovery. Your face may appear slightly pink for 1-2 days, but using our take home serums will speed this up enormously and enhance the collagen production following the treatment. After performing more than 11,000 of these treatments, 98% of patients said they were able to return to work the next day!
