While the legend says that vampires cast no reflection, a vampire facial can help you erase time’s effects on the face that looks back at you in the mirror. Using the blood inside your own body, doctors can now isolate the elements that keep you healthy and use them to smooth wrinkles and fine lines in your skin, restoring the face you remember and love. Using a process of microneedling, followed by facial application of a concentrated serum of platelet rich plasma, our professionals can use these growth factors to rejuvenate the face that you show to the world, to reflect how young you feel inside.
Many of us are often not thrilled with what that face looks like, as it tells everyone our age whether we want them to know or not. We would all like simple ways to regain our youth, and have our outward appearance match how we feel.
Microneedling with PRP
To begin the process of the vampire facial, you will first undergo microneedling on your skin, in which needles of extremely small diameters are inserted just below the surface of the skin on your face, often with a microneedling pen. The process itself is like getting multiple tiny pinpricks, but which can lead to a rejuvenating result. After the skin has been prepared with the mirconeedling, you will receive a platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment. With the PRP treatment added to the process of microneedling, the skin on your face receives therapeutic proteins that begin to work immediately to fade the visible effects of aging.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma
The platelet rich plasma is created from blood extracted from your own body. The medical team separates the plasma, and repeats the process creating a concentrate rich with the platelets from your blood. Platelets are proteins that aid in forming clots and in healing parts of your body that have been injured or damaged.
Platelets are known to contain growth factors that can regenerate tissue and prompt renewal of cells, so creating a highly concentrated solution of them has many therapeutic applications, of which the vampire facial is one. Because the platelets are drawn from your own blood and are simply being returned to your body, the prospect of adverse reactions is minimal. Harnessing the body’s healing and growth factors in this way has brought people relief from pain and healed damage that aging and injury have caused in other parts of the body, and now that same restorative power can be used to address the fine lines on your face.
Reduce Wrinkles and Rejuvenate skin
People spend millions of dollars a year on products and surgeries designed to minimize or hide wrinkles. Unlike costly topical treatment regimens or highly invasive plastic surgery procedures, the vampire facial can address the underlying issues that cause you to wear your age on your face. The regenerative properties of PRP treatments have been well documented, and in this case many dermatologists agree that the treatment is effective in addressing fine lines. Because the growth factors stimulate skin cells to regenerate collagen to grow, skin rejuvenation is a natural, welcome result.
