PRGF Plasma Rich Growth Factors- Vampire treatment.
My first introduction to the treatment was at the gym where a friend I had not seen for a few years looked gorgeous. Her skin was glowing!
We started talking, I complimented her beautiful skin, and then she told me…
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) otherwise known as Vampire treatment! Sounds delicious!
I had never considered facial treatments, and always believed in aging gracefully, how she looked at her age made me completely change my mind.
She had the treatment done abroad back home a bit too far away from me, so I sat down with my laptop and searched within the area. Top of the list Estetica, surrey appeared. Their reviews were so positive I decided to check them out.
I spoke to a lovely lady over the phone who booked me in for an appointment. I was super excited to try this treatment!
To know what to expect from the treatment I went on the web and did some research. I was amazed to find out the treatment is done for medical purposes as well, such as arthritis- to regenerate bone, Hair loss- to promote follicle formation, and regeneration of skin- which is the area I was looking at.
The benefits of plasma rich in Growth factors…
Our body has the ability to regenerate itself by means of the platelets found in our blood plasma which also heals our wounds. Growth factors are proteins found in our platelets that repair and regenerate our skin. The process of this treatment results in durable natural regeneration by the skin internally. It also promotes:
- Production of the skins own hyaluronic acid
- Increased consistency, firmness and reduced sagging by increased secretion of collagen and elastin in the skin.
- Hydration is increased giving the skin a healthy look
- Wrinkle reduction- facial expression lines lose their depth and smooth out.
- Skin luminosity- brightening and youthful appearance that has been lost through the years is revitalises.
I cannot wait for this treatment to start!
As I entered the surgery my jaw dropped at the beauty of the place. The design and detailing is thought of throughout. With soft music playing in the background, it immediately gave me the feeling of perfection not only in the surgery design but in the work being done here by the clinicians and staff…
I was greeted by the lovely receptionist Melinda and asked to take a seat. I could fall asleep in the seats!
My name was called and I was taken in by the friendly nurse Maral, asking me how I am and how my day is, very welcoming.
Dr Burgess is a professional polite lady. She shook my hand and insisted I call her Natty. She truly listened to my questions and needs, and fully answered my questions. I was reassured and all my fears were gone in an instant. She told me this treatment is not a quick fix, instant change, but more like watering a flower, you don not see the benefit and change instantly, but rather slowly with long term benefits.
I laid back in the soft bright green chair, then treatment commenced…
My face was scrubbed gently and disinfected, very relaxing and therapeutic experience..
After the treatment there were some sore areas where the skin was thinner such as forehead, chin and under eyes which worried me, but I was reassured it is nothing to worry about and overall it was a relatively painless treatment.
There was a clever device with a tiny needle at the end that gently injected the plasma into my skin. It controls the pressure and speed at which the injections go into the skin which makes the treatment comfortable and pain-free! The whole thing lasted approximately 45mins, the best rest I have had in ages!
After treatment my skin is covered in the remaining plasma, just like a moisturiser but a slightly more jelly like texture. Dr Burgess asked me to not remove the layer or put any make up on for the rest of the day.
I was a bit red and blotchy which I read about and expected, I was also forewarned it will not look pretty after treatment but the long term benefits are worth it.
In order to get best results three sessions are needed. I booked my next one straight away.
The next day…
My skin felt soft, and it was glowing already. So pleased with the results I recommended the vampire treatment to my family and friends. I cannot wait for the next session…
Thank you to Dr Natty Burgess and the team for the pleasant experience and amazing results.
I absolutely recommend Estetica as a high end clinic in Chertsey as a ‘go to’ place for treatment.
