What Is A PRP Treatment?
Using the patient’s own blood a PRP treatment (Platelet-Rich Plasma) can be used in several ways:
- Speed up the healing of damaged joints, muscles, tendons and also ligaments
- Promote hair growth
- Facial rejuvenation
Platelets are part of the blood which help with the healing and the regeneration of it’s tissues. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a concentration, a serum, of platelets, which are collected via a very tiny (20cc) amount of the patients blood.
Dr Sister uses Dracula Therapy™ which is his own superior trademarked unique version of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a scientifically proven treatment which stimulates the growth of your hair for a lasting permanent solution to this problem.
His “Dracula therapy” is unique in several ways:
- Just 20cc of blood is extracted from the patient
- It is safe from air – it is hermetical
- 100% of the injection is from the patient’s blood – nothing is added
- Really specific calculations are made in the centrifuge process and the equipment specifications. This is to guarantee the correct concentration of the platelets is correct and that no growth factors are released before the injection.
His Dracula Therapy™ PRP treatment offer extremely natural and comfortable results with none of the potential difficulties connected with surgical or chemical treatments.
PRP And Hair Loss
The most prevalent cause for hair loss is a condition called Androgenetic Alopecia. This condition which is caused by genetics and hormones, often starts with thinning at the top or front of the head. Dr. Sister offers a non surgical natural alternative to a transplant which can treat Alopecia and male pattern baldness.
Usually meant for all-natural skin smoothing and revitalisation with the usage of your body’s all-natural healing properties, PRP can in fact help reduce and protect hair loss, all possible by the isolation of platelets from a small blood sample.
When injected in to the targeted area of the scalp the blood cells stimulate growth and increases hair density.
Studies show that approx. 75% of all patients will increase the density of their hair after being treated with Platelet-Rich Plasma.
Dracula Therapy™ offers a cost efficient and safe alternative to a hair transplant. And the results are very natural looking.
What is it like having PRP?
Dr. Sister draws 10cc of blood using a fine needle. A centrifuge then separates the plasma and platelets from other parts of the blood. PRP is injected in to the scalp in the area the hair growth is required.
Since hair grows in definite cycles, we suggest PRP treatments every month for three to five months, then every four to six months which maintains the required increase in hair desnsity.
The whole procedure is painless with no downtime.
Are You A Good Candidate?
A good candidate is someone whose hair loss isn’t caused by some medical condition which needs treatment and you are in good health and are just starting to see their hair thin or experience hair loss.
Dr Sister will examine the scalp and look at your medical history and work out if this treatment will work for you.

PRP And Injuries
When PRP is injected in to damaged tissues it stimulates your body to grow healthy new cells and promotes healing. Since the growth factors are super concentrated this helps the body’s tissues heal faster.
Golfer Tiger Woods and tennis player Rafa NAdel have both had PRP treatments!
Tendon injuries: These are the thick tissues connecting muscles to bone. They usually are very slow in healing after injury. PRP injections are used to treat these chronic problems, like tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis or pain in the tendons in the knee.
Sports injuries: PRP injections are used to treat serious sports injuries like knee sprains and pulled hamstring muscles (very prevalent in footballers).
Post-surgical repair: PRP injections are often used post-surgery to repair torn tendons or ligaments.
Osteoarthritis: PRP can be injexted in to the knee if someone suffers with osteoarthritis. Some studies have found that PRP injections produce better results than hyaluronic acid.
PRP And Facial Rejuvenation
A Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment aids the production of both collagen and elastin improving the texture and quality of the skin. It helps plump the skin as well as softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines and is used for a full facial rejuvenation. Other benefits also include an improvement in elasticity, the tone and skin thickness.
PRP therapy is mainly used on the face, often around the eyes and mouth and nose, but it may be used to reduce the signs of ageing on the hands and anywhere on the body, commonly the décolletage giving a more radiant and youthful appearance.
