Around October it is typical to see holiday themes attached to everything.
So, when you hear about the aesthetic treatment called the Vampire Facial, you might mistake it for another seasonal plug with Halloween coming up. Don’t let the name fool you, though. This is not a mere seasonal promotion.
Micro-needling with PRP, often called The Vampire Facial is so nick named for a very specific reason. Just like Dracula survives off of blood, the vampire facial uses growth factors from your own blood to restore collagen in your skin. This PRP is applied during and following procedures such as micro-needling, Pixel Laser and Venus Viva.
We will admit, the name Vampire Facial may sound a little like a horror movie. However, fear not. The process is actually far less daunting than it sounds, the procedure is relatively quick, and at the end result, you’ll be left with glowing, healthy, smooth skin not at all resembling the pale, night owl that this treatment is named after.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This is the part of your blood that speeds up the healing process by helping to clot over wounds. During the Vampire Facial, we draw your blood and then apply the plasma part of that blood to your face with a micro-needling pen. As the micro-needling treatment penetrates the outer layer of skin, the PRP is absorbed into your skin and begins to work immediately.
By combining PRP with the micro-needling treatment, we instantly begin to heal the area, and reduce redness, and irritation associated with micro-needling. PRP also helps to induce collagen production in your skin, which only adds to the amazing results.
Micro-needling has so many benefits, it’s hard to not be a great candidate for the procedure. Not only does it help with aging skin, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, it also helps to diminish scarring from acne or stretch marks, minimizes the look of pores, and helps to create more overall even skin tone.
