Vampire Facial may have an ominous name to it – but it is a safe, effective and powerful anti-ageing treatment with numerous benefits to the face and neck.
The Vampire skin care treatment London (also known as blood facial) uses your body's natural growth factors and healing ability to rejuvenate the skin and minimise the signs of ageing through the process of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).
PRP is a cosmetic procedure where we use your own blood to promote collagen synthesis, improve tissue oxygenation, nutrition flow to repair and rejuvenate your skin, rather than using any foreign substance or invasive procedures. In a matter of minutes, you'll have a fresher, healthier and a more youthful glow in a natural way.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for face and skin rejuvenation is a fast-growing popular aesthetic treatment that is gaining high admiration as an effective anti-ageing treatment.
This unique therapy relies on your own Platelet-Rich Plasma from your blood to stimulate a healing response and the production of stem cells and growth factors that leads to cell regeneration.
Platelets are blood cell components found in our blood along with plasma, red blood cells and white blood cells. Each of these components have different functions in the body.
For the London PRP Vampire Facial, the platelets and plasma in the blood are extracted and collected for the treatment. Both the red blood cells and white blood cells will not be needed and are thus discarded.
Plasma is needed as it contains ample growth factors, nutrients and bioactive proteins, which helps the regrowth of your cells and tissue restoration.
Platelets are tiny blood cells that circulate within our blood and bind together when they recognize damage and form blood clots (mesh) to prevent any bleeding and stimulate healing.
Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment London utilises these two beneficial growth stimulating components of the blood for reinsertion into in the skin using a very fine needle. Once injected, they work together with the natural restorative capacities in the body to stimulate the renewal of old, weakened skin cells and incite the growth of new collagen, elastin and also improve skin oxygenation. As a result, you will notice your skin become radiant, with great improvement to your skin tone and texture, wrinkles smoothed, face and neck firmer, healthier and a more youthful appearance in a more natural and minimally invasive way.
1. First, a small sample of your blood will be drawn from your arm and collected in a special tube. This tube is then placed in a device called a centrifuge.
2. Next, the blood sample is centrifuged. The centrifuge is used to separate the platelets from the whole blood cells, creating your own Platelet Rich Plasma.
3. With the prepared syringes, the highly concentred PRP is extracted for reinsertion into the face and/or neck.
With PRP face treatment, you need to allow the skin to heal before you can see the full effects of the results. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.
3-4 sessions spaced 3-4 weeks apart, are recommended for best results. Following the first 4 sessions, a top up treatment 6 months later is advisable and then on an annual basis to help maintain skin rejuvenation. During your initial consultation, we will go through this together.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Mesotherapy treatments are non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments that help to turn back the clock for a younger, radiant appearance. What you may not realise is that combining the two treatments can boost the impact and produce fantastic results.
The two treatments combined encourages the formation of collagen and elastin proteins, both of which are necessary for skin regeneration, and works from within for a healthy, glowing appearance.
With this combination, you can gain the benefits of both, allowing Dermamina London to fully utilise the healing capabilities of the PRP, promoting cell creation and the skin's natural restorative functions. PRP and Mesotherapy together promotes the body's natural healing mechanisms and generates benefits that last up to six months longer than mesotherapy or PRP alone.
The treatment is minimally invasive and generally painless. The needles used are among the thinnest, making the procedure virtually painless. Local anaesthetic cream is also available if required.
3-4 sessions are ideally needed depending on the individual, followed by maintenance sessions if desired/necessary. We will work together with you to create a treatment plan tailored to you, in order to achieve optimal results.
We start the appointment with a thorough consultation to understand your requirements and suitability. Once we have a full understanding and you’re happy to proceed, we start the treatment.
No recovery time is needed, you can get straight back to your daily activities right after the treatment. It is advised to let the face heal for 24 hours by making sure you do not apply any pressure directly to the face, following each session for 24 hours. Please also avoid makeup, dirt or sweat in the area to prevent any infection till the face is fully healed. Further post treatment advise will be explained during the consultation provided.
As the treatment uses only natural and safe ingredients of one’s own blood, there is no foreign substance and thus having an allergic reaction or side effects to the substance is very unlikely.
Like with every injectable treatment, there may be some redness, minor bruising, swelling and a slight discomfort at the injected areas. This is nothing to be concerned about and will subside within 24-48 hours following the treatment
Yes, PRP treatments are safe. It is a 100% natural procedure using your own blood, so there is no risk of an allergic reaction. PRP treatments, for many years have been and are currently in use for medical purposes, such as healing of injured muscles and joints, tendons and ligaments.
We are renowned for providing natural looking yet life changing results and being completely honest with our patients. If we feel a treatment is not suitable for you, we will not recommend for you to go ahead with it.
In the case of changing your mind after the consultation, you will be charged £20 for the consultation and the remaining will be refunded or can be used towards another treatment.
