Dracula Facial – What Lengths Would You Go To For Your Skin?

Over the years I have tried many treatments in the quest for good skin, after my 15 year battle with acne.
I first tried Botox aged 35 with Dr Sebagh. At the time it was such a new treatment, and I went there knowing little about its true effects, asides from a recommendation that it would stop the all too frequent, and off-putting movement of my rather large forehead in my new TV career.
It was such a relief to me to have a ‘quieter’ forehead when talking on the screen that I soon became hooked, and have been a patient for 17 years.
When the clinic became one of the first locations in the U.K. to introduce The PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – therapy under the perfect hands of Dr Diana Mariton, I knew I had to give it a try.
The idea of using your own plasma to help skin appear, and actually be, plumper and firmer; as well as helping with hair loss, and improving scar tissue seemed a miracle.
So for the last 3/4 years I have a PRP once or twice a year.
Using a Messotherapy technique to avoid bruising, but still allow penetration on the plasma into the dermis, is the best way to have the least downtime.
Some practitioners will also use different sized needles for deeper penetration but there can be a risk from bruising.
I also incorporate PRP with Dr Sebagh’s UltraLift – a ground breaking no downtime face lifting tdchnology using ultrasound to lift the skin and the deeper muscle underneath. Dr Sebagh developed his reputation as the king of Botox, but his ultimate quest is to offer non surgical solutions to the aging process. I have been a convert to Botox and PRP, but this is always in conjunction with my daily skincare routine, nutrition and general good health.
This is not a treatment for everyone but if you feel it might be for you then research well who offers it on their website (there are many clinics available) but make sure you get a good recommendation,  and feel comfortable they are an experienced practitioner.

Ladies, here is the link of clinic I went to www.drsebagh.com

    Thank you Trinny (and Diana). That’s so informative. I’d heard of this treatment but, for some reason, I’d thought it was a bit gimmicky and hadn’t really considered it. Now I’m seriously tempted.

    I’d be very interested to see a similar video about UtraLift. I’ve been thinking about it for a while but haven’t had a great experience with non-invasive treatments – apart from Botox (which, like you, I’ve been having for 15+ years).

    More than any other site/blog/forum, your website and Facebook page gives me the information I’m looking for in this area. Thanks again!

    Hi Trinny,

    Thanks for this informative video. I found it oddly satisfying to be able to sit and watch through the entire procedure. We so rarely get to see what is actually involved in these treatments.
    I wonder if you might consider updating us on how your skin responded, say, immediately after versus the next day, next few days, following week. I’d love to hear more about the results if you’d be so kind as to share.

    Many thanks!

    What an amazing treatment. Wonder (a) if I can find it out here in the sticks and (b) whether a 75-yr old would benefit. But thank you for your videos, they’re so different from any others I’ve seen and so very interesting.

      Hi Ann, I think one can benefit from it at any age. You need to find a really good doctor wherever you are that can introduce you to the treatment x

    Hi Trinny, has the Gulf of Mexico improved? Hear conflicting stories about whether this helps hairloss of or not, so will be very interested to hear your views. I know it helps the skin enormously.
