PRP Therapy in Edinburgh

What is PRP Therapy (Vampire Lifting) and How Does It Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as Vampire Lifting, taps into the body’s natural healing abilities to stimulate tissue growth, providing the skin with a healthier and more youthful appearance. During the procedure, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn, and through a centrifuge, the plasma is separated, creating a platelet-rich plasma. This concentrated plasma, when injected into specific areas, releases growth factors from platelets, promoting healing and collagen production. 

PRP treatment has gained recent popularity due to celebrities promoting their PRP experiences. However, it has been known worldwide since 1954, primarily for its medical purposes, such as supporting wound healing in trauma and joint injuries. At Pretty & Perfect, we specialize exclusively in hair regrowth and skin regeneration.

Areas Treated

PRP Therapy is commonly used to treat various areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, and scalp, due to their unique benefits and regenerative potential:

Face: PRP injections on the face stimulate collagen and elastin production, promoting skin rejuvenation, reducing fine lines, and enhancing overall skin texture and tone.

Neck & Décolletage: These areas often show signs of ageing and sun damage. PRP treatments help to tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin quality, restoring a more youthful appearance.

Scalp: PRP Therapy on the scalp aids in hair regrowth by stimulating hair follicles, promoting thicker, healthier hair growth and potentially slowing down hair loss. It’s a popular choice for addressing hair thinning or pattern baldness.

Hair Regrowth

Scientific evidence supports the effectiveness of PRP Therapy in aiding hair regrowth.

Improved Texture and Tone

By stimulating collagen production, PRP Therapy reduces signs of aging and sun damage, enhancing overall skin texture and tone.

Smooth Appearance

PRP Therapy (Vampire Lifting), tightens the skin, reduces wrinkles, and enhances skin quality, restoring a more youthful appearance.


Although most patients may witness amazing improvements after 3 weeks, the process of growing new tendon and healing tissue takes time. Complete improvement can take 10-12 weeks or even longer. Results from PRP therapy become gradually visible as collagen production increases.

The effects can last up to 18 months following a full course of treatment. After full recovery, treatment may be combined with others or topped up occasionally during the year to maintain long-lasting youthful skin condition.

Number of Sessions and Interval

The number of sessions varies based on individual needs and the area treated. A full course often involves three treatments in  3-5 week intervals but the frequency and quantity can be adjusted based on the desired outcome.

Single treatments may still provide results lasting several months.

During the Treatment​

Before the procedure, a consultation with the practitioner is conducted to discuss concerns, expectations, contraindications and potential risks. A numbing cream is applied for comfort. Small blood sample is drawn, processed, and re-injected using a fine needle. Some bruising, swelling, and redness may occur immediately after, but these side effects typically subside within a few days.

Potential Side Effects & Downtime

Side effects are minimal as PRP utilises the patient’s own blood, reducing the risk of allergic reactions or transmissible diseases. Bruising, swelling, and tenderness may occur temporarily, and infection risk is minimised through sterile techniques.

There is typically no downtime associated with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities right away. However, it’s important to adhere to the aftercare instructions.
