Oh dear oh dear, it seems that the press (and celebs) have learnt nothing from last year’s Kim Kardashian Vampire therapy debacle. Now I read that model Bar Refaeli has been photographed in a similarly unnecessary bloodied state, AND that a journalist from the Daily Mirror newspaper has followed in her footsteps.
As a long term advocate and pioneer of PRP, I’m horrified at some of the ‘versions’ of the treatment we’re seeing in the press.
I published this post in response to the photos of Kim Kardashian’s face covered in blood while having a vampire facial (another name for PRP). The fact is there is NO REASON for a patient’s face to be covered in blood, as I’ve said before, the procedure is not gory or dangerous.
The Daily Mirror newspaper tells us the procedure has only been used for cosmetic purposes for two years, when in fact I’ve been performing the treatment for over six years. And no, I’ve never smeared a patient’s face in blood or seen bruising as profound as Clemmie Moodie from the Mirror suffered.
Please research the treatment first and find the right practitioner who performs PRP in the best possible way. This is an amazing treatment that offers patients facial improvement WITHOUT synthetic fillers or animal products.
And let’s be clear about what the treatment offers – it’s certainly not a facelift (as the doctor in the Mirror called it), but it does stimulate DNA repair, heals scars and makes dry lacklustre skin look and feel younger. I also don’t recommend a course of treatments, one every six months may help with the on-going ageing process, but I don’t recommend my patients need two or three treatments in order to see results, as this is simply not true.
And while I’m at it, I’ve trademarked the term ‘Dracula Therapy’ as I’ve become increasingly frustrated with seeing the name attributed to inferior versions of the treatment.
Please, whoever you are, research the treatment first and find the right practitioner who performs PRP in the best possible way. This is an amazing treatment that offers patients facial improvement WITHOUT synthetic fillers or animal products. And of course it can also help patients with other issues, such as hair loss and sports injuries.
