A Vampire Facial is a combination of a micro-needling and the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma). The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover. In laymen's terms: It's a facial that essentially uses your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells.
WHAT TO EXPECT: A nurse will draw blood from you, spin it in a centrifuge to extract the PRP, and then inject or apply it topically. Platelets are the cells that circulate within our blood and bind together when they recognize damaged blood vessels. When the body is wounded, platelets come to the wound site and stick together to create a clot and stop bleeding. They also encourage the growth of new tissues. In essence, a Vampire Facial takes platelets from your blood and re-injects them into your face to encourage the growth of new tissue.
Besides the face, PRP can also be used successfully on hands, breasts, and other areas of the body to increase volume and stimulate growth of new elastin and collagen. When used on the scalp, PRP stimulates rejuvenation of the hair follicles, and in many patients, dramatic hair regrowth can be seen. This is an excellent, non-invasive alternative to hair transplant or hair plug treatments.
PRP treatments can also be used to improve sexual health and function of both men and women! click here to learn more about the O-Shot or call us.
