Made famous by Kim Kardashian for having a Vampire Facial, the procedure of taking blood and using elements of it to promote growth is new and it’s definitely different!
Starting out as a medical procedure to heal wounds and injuries by promoting cell growth in specific areas of the body, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) quickly evolved into the very latest beauty trend. It promises to iron out wrinkles and even promote hair growth and it is now available in Dubai.
‘The process takes a little under an hour and is relatively painless’ said Carrie Al Kooheji, a Dubai based Mum who has recently tried out the Treatment at Cosmesurge on Jumeriah Beach Road.
“I’ve struggled with thinning hair for the past few years and have tried everything from new water filters, to every product out there to try to fix it, but nothing seems to work. As a woman, I felt I wanted to try anything I could to prevent any further hair loss.’ She said.
Setting you back an impressive AED2,000 it is not a cheap solution, with top up procedures on top of that but this treatment is certainly taking the Middle East by storm.
So, what is the verdict? Just another wacky beauty trend or could this innovative treatment really work? Time will tell!
