Looking for a new way to improve the overall appearance of your face? Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as autologous rejuvenation therapy, is a groundbreaking new treatment. The process uses the healing and regenerative processes the body already has, to stimulate growth and repair damaged skin cells in specifically targeted trouble areas. The procedure restores volume, texture and shape to the face.
PRP is a non-invasive procedure that uses 8 different "growth factors," to heal and repair damaged tissue. A small amount of the patient's own blood is drawn, the PRP contained within is isolated from the red blood cells, then the PRP is injected back into the face along with Hyaluronic Acid. The growth factors, as well as multi-potent stem cells stimulate collagen and elastin, increasing blood flow, improving tone and texture, and growing new skin tissue. The Hyaluronic Acid restores a more youthful volume and shape by lifting the skin away from the bone.
Vampire Facial combines microneedling with application of Platelet-Rich Plasma. The procedure begins with drawing blood from the patient and then using a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The patient then undergoes a microneedling treatment with PRP for deeper penetration and optimal results. The 8 different growth factors, as well as multi-potent stem cells stimulate collagen and elastin, increasing blood flow, improving tone and texture, and growing new skin tissue.
Within a few days patients begin to see noticeable results. Within 2 to 3 months, when the greatest benefit is seen, individuals report fully refreshed skin that looks and feels more youthful. These results can last between 1 to 2 years afterwards depending on the individual. The procedure grows new tissue, which includes collagen, new blood vessels and new fatty tissue. The additional blood vessels improve the overall appearance of the skin and gives it a healthy glow, while the fatty tissue smooths the skin. Many patients look younger with a fuller, natural shape.
The Vampire Facial requires little recovery time. There may be redness and some tenderness on the first day that appears much like sunburn. Occasionally some bruising may occur. The initial redness will subside on the second day, and some patients then notice some swelling and a sandpaper texture to the skin the day after treatment. By the third day, the swelling should diminish. The sandpaper texture to the skin may persist for up to a week. Though you may notice these changes, you will not likely have any significant downtime as a result of these symptoms. You can go back to your regular daily activities after your appointment and, with a light make-up application, no one will be the wiser about your procedure.
