What Is The Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial is a procedure that involves using your own blood to improve the skin on your face. In a typical treatment, your blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge machine to separate out the blood platelets from the plasma. The platelets in our blood contain proteins and other growth factors that will stimulate collagen production. Collagen helps to provide elasticity to the skin as well as helping to restore volume. This, in turn, gives the skin a more healthy, youthful look. During a Vampire Facial treatment, the platelet-rich liquid will be topically applied to your face during and after micro-needling.
How Does Microneedling and the Vampire Facial Work?
Microneedling is a treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars that stimulates the production of the skin’s own collagen and elastin. It does this through the use of a hand-held device that is applied to your skin by a trained professional. This device contains a number of microneedles that will puncture your skin with controlled depth to create tiny, controlled skin injuries. Once this is done, your body will take over in order to heal your skin and will produce new collagen and elastin to heal and fill in those spots. The addition of your body’s own plasma-rich-platelets will further speed the healing process by supplying additional growth factors to your skin.
