Would you like to improve and minimize facial lines and wrinkles? If you don’t want to undergo surgery, we have the perfect solution for you called a “Vampire Facial”.
What is a Vampire Facial?
A “Vampire Facial” also called Platelet Rich Plasma is a medical facial that hydrates, moisturizes and plumps up the skin using your own blood.
The name originate from how the treatment is performed and is quite a unique procedure. Although it might sound like an invasive procedure, it’s not. Let me explain how the treatment works:
Step 1: A sample of blood is drawn from your arm by one of our specialist doctors.
Step 2: The vial is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma (PRP)
ling is the insertion of very fine, sterilized needles into the skin to stimulate the wound healing cascade and collagen induction to promote skin rejuvenation. The plasma is spread across your face and then followed by the microneedling procedure to help the concentrate of platelet rich plasma protein being absorbed by the skin.
Step 3: Once the Platelets have been separated the procedure gets administered by one of our Specialists in two ways. The one is through microneedling and the other is by injecting the plasma directly into the skin.
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine, sterilized needles into the skin to stimulate the wound healing cascade and collagen induction to promote skin rejuvenation. The plasma is spread across your face and then followed by the microneedling procedure to help the concentrate of platelet rich plasma protein being absorbed by the skin.
“PRP and microneedling complement each other so beautifully during this treatment, stimulating the growth of collagen.” – says Dr Sli our Specialist Dermatologist.
The other option is where the term “Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift” comes from. It is where the plasma is injected directly into the skin, attacking the problem from two angles beneath and on top of the skin.
Interesting fact: PRP started as a treatment to help the recovery of open-heart surgery patients. It then became a favoured restorative procedure in sports medicine and today it is used as an anti-aging method.
Benefits of getting a PRP treatment:
- A natural solution with minimal risk
- No downtime
- Quick and painless
- Increased collagen production
- Treat hyperpigmentation
- Treat large pores
- Diminish Acne Scars
According to a study done in 2018 where they tested the effect of Platelet Rich Plasma injections for the rejuvenation of photoaged facial skin, they found a visible improvement of both fine and coarse textures on the skin. In this study, they injected the PRP into one cheek and a normal saline solution into the other and found a significant improved texture on the skin more with a single treatment of PRP than that with the saline solution.
