PRP Rich plasma facials, also known as the ‘Vampire Facial,’ have become increasingly popular over the years. In fact, it’s been featured on popular reality shows, and even Kim Kardashian has given it a go. So what’s all the buzz around the Vampire facial and why should you consider getting one for yourself? Here are just a few reasons why skin clinics around the world stand behind the PRP treatment and its benefits.

Greatly Improves Complexion

A Vampire facial can produce impressive results. Since it uses drops of blood from the patient to extract the plasma, specialists can obtain the platelets and growth factors to initiate a healing response that greatly improves your complexion and rejuvenates the skin.

Takes Years Off Your Skin

When you inject platelets into the skin, it tricks the body into thinking that there is an injury to heal. This initiates the growth factors to produce new collagen formation in the area. This can increase the overall texture and firmness of the surrounding skin while reducing deep wrinkles, scars and age spots.

Speeds Up Results

The PRP treatment can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to boost the results and speed up the healing process.  For instance, micro-needling can be used to treat scars and wrinkles. PRP can be applied afterwards to create more dramatic results.

A Non-Surgical Way To Look Your Best

Vampire facials are a non-surgical and natural way to repair damaged skin and give you a fuller, healthier look without going under the knife. And because it uses your own blood plasma, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction, infection or unexpected side effects.  It’s also an incredibly fast procedure that takes as little as 45 minutes to one hour from start to finish, and the recovery time is only a few days.

Long Lasting Results

Another major benefit of the PRP treatment is that the results are incredibly long-lasting. Many patients find that their skin looks even better several months following their treatments. That’s because your body starts to produce natural collagen and grow new cells. This effect can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to fully emerge. However, the results will continue to be visible for up to the next two years. This is a stark difference to other treatments, like Botox, that tends to break down over time. 

History of Effectiveness

Platelet-rich plasma injections have been used extensively in medical science as far back as the 1970s. Today, it’s commonly used to treat athletic injury, hair thinning, tendinitis, and even musculoskeletal problems. PRP injections are used to amplify the natural growth factors to heal tissue and accelerate the overall healing process. The treatment has also been clinically proven and has been widely studied by third-party testing for its effectiveness.

Can Be Used On Delicate Areas

Do you have difficult areas to treat, like dark circles under your eyes? If you have sensitive skin or hard to reach areas around the mouth, PRP can be used where lasers can’t. This means that the delicate area under your eyes can easily be targeted with PRP to give you a more rejuvenated look and reduce any visible signs of ageing. It’s also particularly useful for those who suffer from rosacea and sun damage.
