PRP TREATMENT BY PROF. NOAH IN KASSEL: VAMPIRE LIFTING
The so-called vampire lifting (PRP) has established itself in aesthetic medicine as a successful anti-ageing treatment. The method has been known in medicine for many years and is mainly used for the treatment of poorly healing wounds, but also in dentistry and orthopaedics own blood is increasingly used. In the aesthetic field, primarily wrinkles and hair loss are treated with PRP therapy.
Your specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery
Prof. Dr. med. Ernst Magnus Noah is a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery in Kassel. Prof. Noah has already been president of the VDÄPC - (Association of German Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons). Before setting up his own practice, he was the head physician of a clinic department for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery for many years. Take advantage of his extensive experience for your vampire lift.
HOW DOES VAMPIRE LIFITING WORK?
The Vampire Lift works with the patient's own blood - more precisely with Platelet Rich Plasma - PRP for short. This is a component of the blood that is responsible for blood clotting. In addition, the plasma contains growth factors that ensure rapid and effective wound healing. If this active ingredient is now used specifically against wrinkles, collagen and elastin are formed in the corresponding area by the PRP - the production of new cells is promoted. In addition, the skin can now better store moisture again. Exokine® - also called Unicorn Lift - has a similar effect. Exokine® technology has been used in orthopaedics for over 25 years. Thanks to our participation in the study, we are pioneers among German users in the field of aesthetics.
The treatment with Exokine® also uses the patient's own blood, which is specially prepared. In this way, anti-inflammatory proteins (cytokines) are gradually formed in the blood plasma, which ensure that the skin tightens and refines its structure. Collagen and elastin are essential components of connective tissue. If the production of these fibres decreases with age, wrinkles appear on the face. In addition to the treatment of wrinkles, autohaemotherapy can be used for the following aesthetic complaints
- Hair loss
- General fine hair
- Improvement of the skin texture
- Softening pigmentation
- Hand rejuvenation

PROCEDURE OF A TREATMENT WITH AUTOLOGOUS BLOOD
At the beginning, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient. This is then specially prepared so that the plasma separates from the remaining blood components. Before the patient's own blood is injected into the skin with a fine needle, an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the face. The treatment is not actually painful, but there may be slight discomfort. The patient's own blood is then selectively injected into the skin, where it starts the regeneration process. In the case of hair loss, the platelet-rich plasma is brought directly into the scalp to the corresponding hair roots. In this way, bald patches - for example as a result of circular hair loss or hereditary hair loss - can be gradually filled in. PRP therapy is therefore also suitable for hair loss.
|Form of therapy:||Minimally invasive surgery|
|Duration:||approx. 1 hour|
WHEN DOES THE VAMPIRE LIFTING TAKE EFFECT AND HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
The PRP injected into the skin works immediately, but the body needs time to form new collagen fibres, so the final result is only seen after a few weeks. The situation is similar after a Unicorn Lift. In addition, several treatments with the patient's own blood can be useful. This is especially true for a PRP hair root treatment. This is because it can take four to seven sessions at intervals of about four weeks until the hair growth has been stimulated to such an extent that the hair grows fuller again. After this close-meshed autohaemotherapy, a six-monthly booster is usually sufficient to minimise hair loss. The same applies to wrinkle treatment.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS OF AN AUTOLOGOUS BLOOD THERAPY WITH PRP?
Since the blood with the corresponding PRP is taken directly from the body of the respective patient and freshly prepared for each treatment, allergic reactions do not usually occur. However, there may be slight swelling or small bruises on the face after the vampire lift. However, these usually subside quickly with gentle cooling. In the case of an autologous blood therapy against hair loss, the scalp is slightly irritated by the injections. Here, too, gentle cooling provides relief.
ALTERNATIVES TO PRP THERAPY FOR WRINKLES AND HAIR LOSS
In addition to a vampire lifting against wrinkles or an autologous blood therapy against hair loss there are several other Anti-ageing methods. At our clinic in Kassel, for example, it is possible to inject Botox® into the skin to smooth out facial expression lines. Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is a Fillerwhich is also injected into the skin, but rather provides natural volume and thus fills wrinkles.
Another method is the Lipofilling. The body's own fatty tissue is used to fill the volume in the face. Laser therapy can be used to restart hair growth. Using the appropriate wavelength, the hair root can be activated and thus promotes the growth of new hair. We work closely with dermatological practices that offer this treatment method.
If, on the other hand, the hair loss is due to severely tense neck muscles, Botox® can relax the muscles and the hair root is well supplied with blood and nutrients again.
Helps against wrinkles as well as against little hair Microneedling. In this process, small injuries are inflicted on the skin by means of fine needles. As a result, the body produces collagen - similar to PRP. As a result, the hair becomes fuller, wrinkles are reduced and the overall appearance of the skin is improved.
HOW MUCH DOES PRP THERAPY COST AT THE NOAHKLINIK KASSEL?
A treatment with PRP costs about 600 € per session (plus VAT). However, the final price is calculated according to the size of the area to be treated and the number of autologous blood treatments, so we offer multiple treatments. We will be happy to discuss the individual procedure of your PRP treatment in a personal consultation at our clinic in Kassel.
