‘Vampire Facial’ in Coventry
The latest face and body rejuvenation treatment to arrive at APSARAS Clinic in Coventry is Autologous Conditioned Plasma Therapy, known as ACP PRP for short. It’s a popular and safe form of aesthetic treatment, with numerous uses and benefits designed to help patients presenting various symptoms and cosmetic concerns.
Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) is a platelet-rich plasma that is extracted from autologous blood using centrifugation. It’s a multi-purpose form of aesthetic treatment which is used both as an anti-ageing facial rejuvenation solution for support the regeneration of skin and in the treatment of conditions such as alopecia.
Treatments using Autologous Conditioned Plasma Therapy (ACP) can include:
- Anti-ageing skin rejuvenation
- Wrinkle reduction
- Neck rejuvenation
- Hand rejuvenation
- Improved skin vibrancy and texture
- Treating alopecia
- Repairing damaged skin or tissues in the face and body
- To promote healing
This form of non-surgical treatment is considered a more holistic form of therapy, and has been used for many years in sports science medicine to treat athletes suffering with injuries. It’s backed by many years of science and has many well-known fans, such as Pro-Golfer Tiger Woods and TV Personality and Model Kim Kardashian.
Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) is an autologous blood plasma ‒ occurring naturally within the body ‒ that is conditioned as part of a special production process. During this conditioning process the plasma is separated from the other blood components (such as erythrocytes), and concentrated before being re-introduced via injection to the skin of the face or body.
Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Widely used in both traditional medicine and aesthetic medicine, PRP is a general term for a type of plasma that contains an increased concentration of thrombocytes which is extracted from blood using an advanced separation process.
The PRP Treatment Process
The extraction process is simple and quick. ACP is extracted from autologous blood, and for this purpose, a small quantity of blood (10 – 15 ml) is drawn from a superficial vein in the same way as in the case of a blood test.
A disposable syringe is used to take blood from the patient, before it’s conditioned and then re-injected into the region to be treated. In this respect, the blood product remains in the syringe system throughout the entire process, offering the maximum possible level of protection against infection or contamination.
Main components of ACP include thrombocytes (platelets), and numerous growth factors that play an important role in the healing and rejuvenation process. Unlike other platelet-rich plasma formulations, ACP is distinguished by a low concentration of white blood cells, such as neutrophil granulocytes which have shown to be detrimental in some cases to the healing process when present in high concentrations.
Apsaras Clinic in Coventry is delighted to be offering patients this advanced and multifunctional form of skin rejuvenation and alopecia treatment, and we continue to see outstanding results thanks to this innovative non-surgical aesthetic treatment.
Autologous Conditioned Plasma Therapy can be offered as a standalone cosmetic treatment for concerns such as alopecia, or can be used in combination with other treatments as part of a wider skin rejuvenation programme. Some patients find that ACP improves the quality of the skin when used in combination with injectable wrinkle reduction treatments, such as dermal fillers or muscle relaxing injections.
