Vampire Facial (Platelet Rich Plasma MicroNeedling)
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment has many exciting benefits. Your blood contains platelets and plasma, which contains growth factors. By using your blood, it is processed to extract the plasma and platelets for several benefits. Some of these benefits are to stimulate new collagen growth, therefore providing fresh and healthy skin. PRP is also used to treat wrinkles. PRP is also used for those with thinning hair to stimulate new and thicker hair growth.
Benefits of a Vampire Facial:
Increased Collagen Production
Around the age of 25, your body’s collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline at a significant rate for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate its production rate. Moreover, the quality of the collagen produced drops. All of this results in visibly unhealthy skin.
Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles, or severe folds, or you have other visible skin issues; there’s an excellent chance that a vampire facial will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a vampire facial when the tiny needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the microneedling portion of your treatment.
As soon as your skin is penetrated, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher quality collagen takes a couple of weeks to produce. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You’ll see tthe results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment!
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a vampire facial. These common signs of aging are treated as cellular turnover is promoted. Old skin cells are recycled, and new skin cells, collagen, and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in part as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by the treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.
Tighter, Firmer Skin
As stated previously, collagen is also essential for tight, firm skin. As you age, your skin starts to sag, but wrinkles and lines don’t always form. Facial skin often thins with age, and certain parts of the face, like the lips and cheeks, are likely to become noticeably thin and gaunt; renewed collagen plumps up the skin!
