A new beauty treatment known as Dracula therapy is available in Truro for the first time.
The Aesthetic Solutions company is offering the latest rejuvenation treatment which involves re-using the client’s own blood.
Sue Power from Aesthetic Solutions said: “The link with Dracula becomes more obvious when the treatment is explained.
“It involves the initial collection of your blood which is then spun using a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelet portion.
“This platelet-rich plasma (PRP) portion of your blood in then injected back into your skin to stimulate new collagen production and to re-energise your cells.”
The treatment takes from 30-45 minutes and costs £500 with an improvement in skin tone and texture expected within three weeks.
Mrs Power said the Dracula therapy was a medical treatment which had also been used to help the healing process of bone, skin and tissue.
The treatment can only be carried out by medical practitioners.
