What is a vampire facial?
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is the “official” term for a vampire facial. In essence, it is a regenerative therapy that only requires the patient’s own blood.
The body relies on platelets, which are microscopic blood cells that control bleeding as well as repair damaged blood vessels and cells. You could consider them to be tiny engines that, when in touch with the body’s tissue, release proteins for growth.
The client’s arm is punctured to get blood for PRP. The platelets are then separated from the blood by spinning it in a machine.
Tiny acupuncture-style needles are used to collect the blood’s plasma and splattered it on the client’s face to revitalize it.
PRP advocates suppose that it:
- Enhances the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles.
- Rejuvenate the area around the eyes.
- Tighten the resistant pores.
- Any area (such as the cheeks) that may normally receive fillers would be plumped.
How painful and safe vampire facials are?
A local anesthetic cream is applied to the face. Injections administered directly into the lip border might cause some discomfort, but other than that, the procedure should be rather painless.
Bruising around the eyes, puffy-looking skin, and minor itching for two days are potential side effects.
Am I a candidate?
Almost everyone qualifies for PRP microneedling. For those who have fine lines and wrinkles, significant sun damage, or uneven skin tones, this procedure can help them look younger. If you have a history of blood disease, you might not be a candidate!
