In terms of beauty, other than going under the knife – it doesn’t get much braver than the vampire facial
Olivia Morris
PRP is the term often used for the increasingly popular platelet rich plasma facial rejuvenation treatment. As the cosmetic industry has continued to develop, you no longer need to go under the knife to see amazing results. Treatments involving lasers and injections can still be daunting however, especially if you’re using these for the first time. Platelet Rich Plasma facial rejuvenation treatment (PRP) is one such treatment, commonly referred to as the ‘vampire facial’. Aptly named, as the treatment requires blood to be drawn, then put through a special machine to separate the red cells from the nutrient-rich and regenerative plasma. This plasma is then injected into the facial skin, where it is supposedly meant to encourage collagen production and soften fine lines.

It’s an incredibly popular treatment globally, which is reflected in the increase in treatment requests within the UAE. American Board Certified Dermatologist Dr Lana Kashlan of CosmeSurge Dubai has witnessed this increase directly. While the sight of the so-called vampire facial can be daunting, Dr Kashlan actually says it’s one of the safest treatments you can do. So, if you’re looking to take a bold step in your beauty regime, this could be the time to do it as Dr Kashlan breaks down exactly what goes into PRP treatment and what you can expect from it.
