A Vampire Facial! What’s That?
No, we don’t dress like a vampire to perform your facial. Lol. You may have seen celebrities like Kim Kardashian with blood dripping down her face after having had a “Vampire Facial”. Kim was trying to keep her youthful good looks and perfect skin, and a PRP treatment is one way to accomplish this.
Let me introduce you to one of my favorite treatments: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a treatment that continues to show the benefits over time. Platelet rich plasma has historically been used to heal and repair a host of injuries and conditions. Platelet rich plasma comes from your own body to transform your looks by firming and enhancing tissue.
Your platelets contain alpha granules that are full of growth factors. These growth factors are key to the proliferative repair of damaged tissue. Growth factors stimulate cellular growth, cellular communication and advanced healing. Growth factors in PRP are potent and effective. A PRP procedure is performed by drawing your blood, spinning it down and removing the platelets to inject or microneedle it into your face. It may sound a little unusual, but it works.
Why Get a Vampire Facial? Most of our clients tell us that they want to create (or continue maintaining) their youthful look. They want to delay the effects of aging that start to take hold. The mainstay of aesthetics treatments has always been Botox, Dysport and fillers (Restylane, Juvederm). These are highly effective treatments that produce great results. But, aside from fillers and neurotoxins, there are many other treatments available to slow the effects of aging. One such treatment is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), otherwise known as the Vampire Facial.
Didn’t I see a Crazy Photo of Kim Kardashian After a Vampire Facial? The photo of Kim Kardashian was a bit dramatic. It doesn’t truly look like that, but you may have a little bit of downtime if you bruise or bleed easily. Having said that, your benefits will be amazing! These are the times you can ward off a future face lift with a multitude of treatments. The PRP with micro-needling is just one option we can provide, there are many others as well. And by the way, PRP can help you grow hair too. So, while you won’t look like Wolfman after a PRP facial, we can certainly help you restore a thinning or receding hairline with a PRP treatment!
