What you need to know about the PRP ‘Vampire Facial’
How to attain fresh skin for (almost) ever…
The Angel Platelet Rich Plasma treatment (PRP), more widely know as the “Vampire Facial” uses your own blood to extend the life of your skin. Made popular in 2013 by Kim Kardashian, the treatment is great for those seeking to re-volumize and rejuvenation. PRP is highly effective for skin tightening and can add definition to hollowed out areas. The treatment can be used on crows feet, facial collagen, post-pregnancy tummy or a dull complexion.
So, how does it work? The doctor will take a vile of the clients own blood then spin it in a centrifuge. This process separates the red blood cells from the plasma. Once these are separated the plasma can then be collected.
Plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Growth factors signal skin cells to grow therefore stimulating collagen and elastin to regenerate. The Platelet Rich Plasma can then either be injected back into the area acting as a natural filler or used with micro needling. Due to using your own blood, there’s no risk of adverse reactions.
The results you can expect is tight, fresh skin with restored volume and brightening. Results generally peak around 2-3 months when collagen and elastin have begun to restore. The benefits of this treatment are that it does not compromise your natural look as your skin is regenerated from the inside out – giving you a glowing complexion.
