Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
We are one of the only providers of this course to be able to offer the training to non-medics as long as our insurance company approved access is accepted.
The treatment involves a sample of the patient’s blood being taken from their arm (you must be trained in phlebotomy/venepuncture to take live bloods) and placed into a centrifuge, which spins it very rapidly to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma can be injected directly into specific areas of the skin, or skin needling can be used to create tiny punctures across a larger area, to allow the plasma to be absorbed. These treatments are known as Vampire Facial & Vampire Facelift.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Skin rejuvenation and dermal filling using the body’s own natural filler called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). This treatment uses your own ‘autologous’ platelet-rich plasma as part of a comprehensive rejuvenation treatment.
Intensive hands on practical includes micro needling, addressing the client’s specific needs. This PRP training course covers both the vampire facelift & vampire facial ‘face’ for skin regeneration. Micro needling & injection techniques are covered.
Using your body’s own growth factors in order for the skin to repair and rejuvenate; also called PRP or the Vampire facelift. This treatment can be used either as a stand-alone treatment for your clients or is ideal to compliment other treatments such as Dermal Rollering, Derma Pen or Mesotherapy. Part of the course will include taking of the blood (phlebotomy) and the use of a Centrifuge System.
All delegates will be taught how to use a dermal roller to apply the PRP. The roller used is a 0.5mm roller (this does not qualify you in micro-needling, however, we do run a separate course should you wish to be trained in this procedure).
You must have completed phlebotomy training, in live bloods not just completed training.
