Practically everyone is going to struggle with at least a few age-related imperfections over the years, and trying to mask those blemishes with various beauty products can be a hassle. If you want healthy and revitalized skin, you should take a closer look at the vampire facial. This astounding procedure utilizes powerful compounds that are inside your very own blood, and it is an excellent treatment option for most surface blemishes. Within weeks of your vampire facial, your skin could begin to transform as your unwelcome imperfections fade away.
A Look at Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP therapy has been around for many decades, and doctors originally developed this procedure for joint damage. When certain components are extracted from your blood and injected back into your soft tissue, your body will be prompted to heal itself. After the PRP injections are carried out, the treatment site is flooded with collagen, elastin, and keratin. All of those natural proteins and compounds repair damaged cells and strengthen the nearby soft tissue.
Over the course of a few years, doctors began to realize that PRP therapy seemed to work on surface damage as well. The vampire facial is a type of PRP therapy that is carried out on the face, and it can be used to treat a myriad of blemishes including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. Some patients also have this treatment carried out to diminish the appearance of acne and acne scars.
In addition to injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the soft tissue, our team is also going to carry out a short procedure known as microdermabrasion. This procedure has been around for many years as well, and it is going to further enhance the results of your vampire facial. With a handheld device, one of our team members will create thousands of microscopic tears in the outer layers of the epidermis. Your body will react to those tears by sending growth factors to the soft tissue. In the weeks following the appointment, the damaged tissue is going to be replaced by healthy skin cells.
Your Vampire Facial Appointment
When you arrive at our cosmetic center, one of our team members is going to take a small sample of your blood. They will then place that blood in a device that spins it at a very high speed to separate the plasma from all of the other molecules. Once we have a dose of concentrated plasma, we can inject it back into your skin. While you can immediately resume all normal activities following your appointment, we usually suggest that patients relax at home for the rest of the day.
