The Vampire Facial has become popular thanks to celebrities having the procedure to keep their skin looking camera ready and glowing. The Vampire Facial is a procedure which combines platelet rich plasma (PRP) with the use of micro needle dermal stimulation.The small entries into the dermis cause the skin to respond with collagen which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage.
What is The Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial does not include any injection with a syringe. The PRP (platelet rich plasma) is spread over the skin and the fine needles of of the micro needle device creates “entry pores” to the top layers of the skin.
The benefits of this treatment can be appreciated as soon as 1 week. The skin can continue to improve over several weeks and the benefits can last for months.
The Vampire Facial treatment is customized to the needs of the client and is used to improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Sun damaged skin
- Brown discolorations
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) delivery to the dermis further enhances the micro needle treatment so collagen and other skin enhancing support is stimulated by the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The platelet rich plasma (PRP) also has factors which stimulate blood supply to the skin. This creates a look of glow and luster to the skin which is unique to platelet rich plasma.
Typically, your skin may appear red for about 1-2 days however.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP is a concentrated source of platelets, growth factors and cytokines produced naturally in your own body, and stimulates and controls healthy regenerative processes, including collagen and soft tissue remodeling, and thereby improves overall health and rejuvenation. PRP has been used successfully for years to promote improved healing times and optimal results from various surgical and non-surgical procedures. The PRP, painlessly obtained through a small blood draw, is injected after dermal filler and enhances the results of this amazing procedure.
3 Steps of the Vampire Facial Procedure
First, our esthetician isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood. Then, she uses a micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures –both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin & creating stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face. Finally, she paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation.
The skin tightens, and glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result. For more information or to book a complimentary skin care consultation, click here or call 561-776-9555.
