Dracula Therapy is a powerful anti-ageing treatment that involves using your own blood as an injectable treatment. This is the most popular version of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.
Dr Paul Cronin was personally trained by the developer of Dracula Therapy™ PRP Dr Daniel Sister and became the ﬁrst Doctor to introduce the treatment to the Northwest. If you would like to find a specialist nearer to where you live the contact the British College of Aesthetic Medicine.
Dr Cronin takes a small sample of the patient’s blood (about the same amount as an average blood test). He then separates it into red blood cells, clear serum and platelets – through a process of centrifugation. Vitamins and amino acids can be added before this super-charged serum is injected into the patient, using tiny painless injections, in whichever area requires treatment.
So what does it do? Essentially it allows the body to heal faster and more efﬁciently. It stimulates DNA repair, heals scars and makes dry lacklustre skin look and feel younger. Not only is it an amazing anti-ageing treatment, but it also has wider uses within the medical profession, including treating hair loss and sports injuries.
Results are noticeable within 3-4 weeks and often only one or two treatments are required. It works especially well for the forehead, cheeks, neck, décolletage, hands, knees and elbows. It’s amazing at skin revitalisation, tackling scars (including acne scars) and stretch marks. It can be mixed with dermal ﬁllers to treat lines, administered during the same appointment as botulinum toxin for a lifting effect and really tackle any skin related problems.
PRP appeals to patients looking for a more natural approach to facial rejuvenation, i.e. rejuvenation using their own cells and more speciﬁcally, autologous platelet-rich plasma and facial augmentation without the use of synthetic ﬁllers or animal products.
Treatment may need to be repeated every 2-6 months because of the on-going ageing process.
