Renew Your Skin
Many patients visit The Facial Center to find a solution to aging or damaged skin, and there are a variety of cosmetic options from which to choose. PRP/Vampire Facials are unique treatments designed to restore facial shape and improve the tone and texture of the skin. This progressive procedure uses your own body’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance your skin’s healing properties and create a youthful appearance. The distinctive approach to cosmetic enhancement and its outstanding results have led to this treatment’s quickly growing popularity!
What Is a Vampire Facial?
The PRP/Vampire facial is a fantastic option for those who wish to restore their skin’s youthful glow and require moderate skin correction. If you notice a graying skin tone, fine vertical lines around the mouth, a change in your skin texture, or have acne scars, this may be the right options for you. Many patients and practitioners think of this as essentially a “turbo-charged” microneedling treatment. Following the procedure and after a short healing period, you can expect to see tighter skin that glows with color and the reduced appearance of any acne scarring.
Patients undergoing this procedure can expect to go through a four-step treatment process:
- Step one: A numbing cream is applied onto the face approximately 30 minutes prior to the procedure.
- Step two: A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm to create the PRP.
- Step three: Using a treatment called microneedling, acupuncture-like microscopic channels are made into the skin. This stimulates the dermis to release certain special active biomolecules into the surrounding skin.
- Step four: Using the PRP created from your own blood, the skin is infused with platelets triggering the growth of collagen, elastin, and new blood vessels.
