VAMPIRE FACIAL AND FACELIFT
The ‘ Vampire Facial’ is one of the most talked about non surgical procedures in 2021 and though it sounds ominous, it is actually an amazing antiaging treatment that is quickly gaining popularity.
The Vampire Facial harnesses the body’s natural substances found in your own blood to reduce the signs of ageing whilst also in some cases, help with acne scarring too.
It can help tighten and brighten your skin.
Normally a course of 3-4 treatments are recommended a month apart to achieve the best results. The microneedling allows for the body to stimulate collagen too which can take up to 3 months to see the final results.
So how does it work?
During a vampire facial, a sample of your own blood is drawn from your arm.
The vial is placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the red blood cells
Once the blood is separated, the platelet rich plasma with all the nutrients in is injected into the skin using a microneedling device.
Before treatment, numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimise any discomfort
If you are going for a Vampire Facelift, a Hyaluronic filler is also injected in the same appointment.
The suggested benefits of a vampire facial are:
- Reduced wrinkles
- Plump skin
- Faded or diminished acne scars
- Brightened skin
- Reduce open pores
- Rejuvenate under the eye area
As it your own blood that is used, there are no risks to this treatment. Some people experience redness and swelling post treatment but this resolves without any intervention within 24-48 hours.
This treatment is more than an antiaging treatment as it works on healing and regenerating skin cells which in turn can give you a fresher and more vibrant appearance. Dull, lacklustre skin can be brightened, wrinkles smoothed, large pores reduced and skin tone and texture improved.
If this sounds a little macabre or fringe to you, you might be surprised to learn that even the biggest celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Bar Refaeli and British actor Rupert Everett have all undergone the “dracula treatment”.
Platelet-rich plasma has been used for over 50 years!
