Fancy images where people look like they have blood smeared all over their face and secretly wish to try it? Or maybe you are super scared of the visuals and wondering what are all these people up to? Or do these visuals secretly remind you of those vampire movies?
Blood in the human body equates to life. Platelets and cells found in the blood play an important role in the body and are responsible for plenty of important processes.
A PRP facial, aka vampire facial, is an advanced skincare treatment that involves drawing your own blood. During the process, blood will be drawn from your body, processed to extract the platelet-rich plasma which is then injected into your skin to attain a variety of benefits. PRP is not only limited to skin beautification, it is also widely known for treating hair loss.
Sounds quite complicated? It is actually a very simple treatment that can be completed in a single session. Some people require more than one session to achieve the desired results.
Here is what to expect from the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Facial or Vampire Facial process:
Step 1: Step one involves drawing your blood from your arm. You won’t be giving out an entire bottle of blood. About 2 to 4 tablespoons of blood is enough to cover your entire face.
Step 2: The blood will be collected in an FDA-approved device. The blood will be spun in a centrifuge which essentially separates the blood into multiple layers. One layer includes a high concentration of platelets which will be used to transform your skin.
Step 3: The platelet-rich plasma will be injected into your face with the help of a syringe or a microneedling device that will kick start the skin healing process and make you look fresh and youthful.
Although PRP Therapy has a variety of other benefits, let’s focus on the anti-aging benefits in this section:
INCREASED COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
We all know that collagen levels start to drop as soon as we hit our mid-twenties. Needless to say, collagen continues to decline at a rapid rate for the rest of your life which is one of the prime reasons behind skin aging. PRP Facial helps to stimulate the production rate of collagen that results in visibly healthier and youthful skin.
Increased collagen production will prevent the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. As soon as the skin is punctured with minor needles, your skin will trigger collagen production. The PRP will penetrate your skin effectively and boost the healing process. Increased collagen production directly translates into younger skin.
MINIMIZES FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most common signs of aging and getting a PRP facial. The facial boosts the process of cell turnover, triggers the production of collagen, elastin and tightens your skin. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles are greatly reduced.
The treatment plumps up hollow areas of your skin/face and diminishes the appearance of deeper folds that makes you look significantly younger.
TIGHTER, FIRMER, YOUNGER SKIN
A tight, firm skin screams youth. With age, our skin starts to sag and that can make us look older. The vampire facial boosts collagen production which firms and plumps up the skin to achieve the desired aesthetic. It can be used to plump up your lips, tighten up sagging skin on your face.
IMPROVED MOISTURE RETENTION
As we age, our skin starts to lose moisture which makes it thinner and more prone to getting irritated from the external barriers. A well-moisturized skin translates into a strong skin barrier. The PRP therapy helps you achieve that by unclogging your pores, making them more receptive to moisture.
The treatment minimizes the appearance of the pores, makes it more open to absorbing all the amazing skincare products, and helps protect the skin.
IMPROVED SKIN TONE AND TEXTURE
If you are dealing with ace scars, surgical scars, injury marks, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin texture, PRP facial is an amazing treatment for you. Your old skin cells will be replaced with new, healthy ones. You will see a significant improvement within a few days of getting the vampire facial done.
EVEN AND IMPROVED SKIN TONE
Having an uneven skin tone is quite common. With age, our skin tends to get affected by pollution, sun damage, and other environmental stressors. Unfortunately, conventional creams won’t work for getting rid of the uneven skin tone. PRP Facial contains a lot of essential nutrients that make your skin look healthy and even-toned. You will see a drastic improvement in just one session.
