The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool. The micro-needling tool creates micro punctures in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to stimulate stem cells that exist in the face.
PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most useful natural treatments in aesthetics.
How Does The Vampire Facial® Work?
This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used and microneedled into the specified areas. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (PRP) is used, there should be no side effects from the material microneedled.
The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. This builds the underlying tissue with tightening, smoothing, and increased blood flow (which makes the color more attractive). It may take 5 to 7 days to heal from microneedling and do not pick any of the scabs. Let these scabs naturally fall off so as to not produce any scars. Within 2-4 weeks you will see improvement with continued positive changes for 12 weeks.
There is actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of uni-potent stem cells, so the change is not from something foreign being in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRP stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization).
The results of this treatment should last for at least 6 months to one year, but results may vary.
What Can The Vampire Facial® Do For You?
Each patient should experience a fresher, more youthful appearance artfully designed to meet your needs and sustain a natural appearance. Benefits of The Vampire Facelift® may include:
- The skin color becomes a “younger” color because of new blood vessel formation.
- New collagen forms in the dermis, lifts the face back to more youthful shape.
- Because the growth factors are working to build a new dermis, the epidermis (the outer most layers of your skin) appears smoother.
