What is a Vampire Facial?
Vampire facials have been popularised in the west by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, commonly known as Platelet-rich plasma therapy facials or facilities. Celebrities love this procedure for the effect it gives in HD cameras.
PRP Skin rejuvenation has entered a new time with the advanced Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, using platelets derived from your own blood to minimise or even eliminate scars, fine lines and wrinkles. This therapy is popular with both men and women and is a natural way to utilise your own blood cells to give you a better looking lifted skin.
Stem cells from the concentrated plasma is being utilised for the last few years for the production of new cells in the field of Aesthetics.
The advanced technology now is able to use your own stem cells for anti-ageing and younger-looking skin.
PRP Rich Facial Treatment
When PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma derived from your own blood is combined with the microneedle therapy it boosts the stem cells by releasing within the skin to produce collagen and elastin thus resulting in a fresh and youthful skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma is literally able to stimulate new cell growth in the patient’s body wherever it is injected by releasing growth factors present in the platelets. It aids the body in healing itself naturally without using any chemicals or foreign substances. The possibility of an allergic reaction or sensitivity is minimal since PRP is harvested from the patient’s own blood.
PRP Facelift (PRP Injection for Face)
PRP is injected directly under the skin and can be combined with microneedling for better results. It does not involve the use of any botox or fillers.
PRP therapy for Facial Rejuvenation is one of the best natural drugless therapies wherein the healing power of your body is utilised to smoothen folds, wrinkles, and even acne scars for better even skin texture.
What is the general result of the PRP facial?
After a few weeks, you will notice an improvement in the skin texture, quality and colour. The freshly formed collagen starts growing under the skin to give the skin its glowing, tighter and fuller appearance.
With time the skin quality and texture improve further. It can help to rejuvenate the under-eye area by reducing dark circles and sunken eyes, making your face look younger and brighter.
Smoother skin due to the new collagen production and fresh glowing skin due to the new blood vessel formation.
Is there downtime after PRP Facial Therapy?
It is best to allow yourself time to heal. With the PRP Rich Facelift, if no microneedling is done, you may experience mild redness, bruising and/or swelling at the site of injections(s). Swelling resolves in 24-48 hours but a bruise can last up to 2 weeks for some people. A regular routine can be resumed the next day.
How is PRP Facelift different from cosmetic facelift surgeries?
Traditional cosmetic surgery is an option for patients who require more substantial adjustments. PRP Facelift is a natural way of skin tightening and the results are gradual and less dramatic. However, it can also be combined with the traditional facelift surgery to improve skin elasticity, appearance and texture for a younger and anti-ageing effect.
What are some of Vampire Facial’s side effects?
If PRP is performed with microneedling, mild irritation or puffiness may occur for 24 to 48 hours.
Some patients may have bruising which may take a week to resolve.
How lasting are the PRP Facelift results?
You will notice the change after the single sitting in most of the cases, but generally one needs 2 to 3 sittings at 4 to 6 weeks apart for the best results. On average, the results last around 6 to 9 months and is individual to the person’s ageing process. After this, its recommended to repeat the procedure once a year for maintenance of the results and counter the further ageing process.
