The blood or vampire facial stimulates the natural healing powers of your own skin in order to rejuvenate it and tackle the signs of ageing.
The blood or vampire facial uses platelets collected from your own blood. A small amount of blood will be taken from your arm. The platelets, which are small cell fragments that stimulate healing, are then extracted and concentrated to make Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. The PRP is injected back into your skin with a fine needle. The injections can be targeted to the areas where you require treatment in order to achieve the desired results. The platelets will stimulate healing, regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin in these parts of your skin. The treatment will usually take between 30 and 60 minutes, but it depends on how large an area is being treated. You may need multiple treatments in order to achieve the best results.
You may see some redness or bruising at the points where the injections were given, but you shouldn’t need any downtime after the procedure. Most people can go back to work and social events right away. However, it can take several weeks for the effects of the treatment to be seen. It takes time for your skin to heal and regenerate, even with the stimulation of PRP treatment. You should see a steady improvement in your skin over the next few months, with results that will last for at least 18 months.
The blood facial encourages healing and regeneration in your skin, so it can help with a wide range of skin problems. You can use this treatment to tackle the most common signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and sagging. The treatment can also help to reduce the appearance of certain kinds of scars or to fade stretch marks. A blood facial will improve the condition of your skin too, so it should look and feel better for many months.
The blood facial can be very effective on its own, but it can also be combined with other treatments. Sometimes combining vampire facial with treatments such as chemical peels to enhance their effects by stimulating healing and regeneration in your skin.
