Vampire Facial’s otherwise known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Facials are hugely beneficial..but also looks incredibly terrifying. PRP utilizes the body’s blood to regenerate new cellular growth and assist with healing your skin. PRP boosts collagen production, energize stem cells and improve circulation. As well as plumping up the skin and giving you a youthful glow, it can help improve the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles, tighten open pores, and even out the tone and texture of sun-damaged and discolored skin.
The procedure involves taking blood from your arm, separating the platelets and then injecting them into your skin via micro needling. The doctor runs the needle pen over your face while squirting the platelets into the mini injection holes. Since the platelets are high in growth hormone, and the microneedling stimulates the skin to regenerate, the entire procedure is meant to aid cell turnover.
Be advised that since vampire facials drive tiny needles into your skin, creating pathways for PRP to dive deep into your pores for truly transformative results, you want to stay away from anything else that could seep into that sacred space and irritate it. Think makeup and skin-care acids. Don’t worry though, living in the no-makeup world that we live in, no one will bat an eye, and you’ll be able to return to your favorite cosmetics in two short days. With acids, on the other hand, it’s best to wait a full week.
When will I see results?
Improvement in the texture and tone of your skin will become noticeable within three weeks of your treatment, within three months patients can expect full collagen regeneration. Combining this treatment with topical skin care and light therapies can enhance these results. PRP treatments are approved for all skin types and tones. Minimal swelling, bruising, and redness for the initial 12-24 hours are expected.
