By now you must have heard about the cosmetic trend known as the vampire facial. But what exactly does a vampire facial do. The cutting-edge platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) facial, popularly known as the vampire facelift, has become massively popular in recent years, because of its excellent skin rejuvenation benefits.
How the vampire facial works
Blood is first drawn from the patient’s arm and then placed in a centrifuge where it is spun at high speed, to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood components. The resulting solution is the platelet-rich-plasma that is topically applied to the face after microneedling treatment has been performed. The channels created by the micro-needles allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin.
What exactly does a vampire facial do?
- Regenerates skin cells: PRP contains growth factors that trigger the growth of new skin cells. The new cells remodel the skin and improve its overall appearance.
- Stimulates collagen production: The vampire facelift also initiates a healing response in the skin that leads to the production of fresh, new collagen. Collagen is an important protein in the skin that helps to strengthen the underlying structure, so when collagen levels increase the skin becomes firmer and smoother.
- Rejuvenates aging skin: PRP improves skin tone and texture, making the skin plumper, smoother, and more youthful.
- Improves overall skin health: The generation of new cells and tissue boosts the health of the skin.
The vampire facial also reduces pores and acne scars, and tightens sagging skin.
