Have You Heard of Dracula Therapy

SKIN IS A WONDERFUL ORGAN. But, with age skin changes in response to the elements that assail it, particularly the sun. You may be feeling like a million bucks inside, but your skin may not echo the same sentiments. And that’s not good, which explains why anti-ageing creams are such a big hit. However, anti-ageing creams don’t deliver as promised (even the best ones). You just need to ask a user to get confirmation. Anti ageing creams work but only for wrinkles (read fine lines) that are setting in. Anything deeper and you have to seek help of the dermatologist. If you are thinking that there is no hope beyond peels and botox to smoothen, skin’s imperfections, My Health Guardian tells you about a latest therapy that really does miracle. Continue reading…

Dracula Therapy is the latest non surgical, age defying treatment in news these days. As the name suggests, in this therapy, nearly 15 ml-20 ml (a test tube) of plasma rich blood is extracted from a patient’s body, which after being processed with growth hormones gets injected back on the skin to get a fresher, younger and plumper looking skin, informs Dr Urvashi Kaw, Consultant, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery at BLK Super Speciality Hospital.
Face, neck, décolleté, and backs of hands are the areas commonly injected by this technique. It takes about 45 minutes for face and neck and the results last more than a year. Patients can notice improvement in about three weeks from therapy because collagen takes 3 months to mature and show its effects.
The concept behind this therapy is that your own blood with additions of growth hormones will help to stimulate the growth of the fresh cells, repair DNA, heal scars and treat wrinkled skin, without any chemical or surgical procedure. However, the blood has to be fresh, otherwise the chances of infection are also there, further warns Dr Kaw.

Is it right for me?

Age-wise: Anyone above 18 years of age can undertake this treatment; however the trend is catching up more among women in their 30s who have the urge to look their best in the social space.

Cost- wise: In India being newest in trend a single sitting for the therapy costs around ` 25, 000.

How many sessions are recommended?

The number of sittings varies depending on the age and the skin condition. However at least 3 therapies, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended.
