Take an In-Depth Look –> The Vampire Facial / Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP
What is the Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial is a procedure that spins your own blood, in order to yield a natural Platelet Rich Plasma also known as PRP — loaded with viable platelets that can be applied in a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. The Vampire Facial prepared PRP can be applied just below the surface through injections and / or microneedling, in order to penetrate into your skin and restore the skin.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma? How is PRP Prepared?
The Vampire Facial is a non-invasive procedure using your own blood to enhance your body’s own natural healing process. This procedure prepares a product from Platelet Rich Plasma from the platelets from your own blood — allowing the dispersal of tissue building elements from this concentrated serum into the skin.
Where Can I Get a Vampire Facial? What Areas of the Face?
PRP can be injected and microneedled under the eyes, into the forehead, and smile lines, as well as into deep wrinkles to stimulate collagen re-growth. Skin rejuvenation with PRP can be done on the neck, Décolleté, breasts / chest and back of hands as well.
What PRP Results Can I Expect?
The treatment will provide a gradual increase in volume, as well as spark a strong process of skin repair, over a few months. It does this by helping to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Following your treatment, you will see immediate results and have a nice, refreshing glow. After time, the area of treatment will tighten and regain the youthful glow that it once had.
Is It Safe? Are There Side Effects? What to Expect Before and After?
The Vampire Facial has been shown to be both safe and effective. Since Vampire Facial uses your own blood, there is practically no risk of an allergic reaction. If you have a history of allergies please inform Doctor George Liakeas. There have been serious side effects reported very rarely. However, you may experience some common reactions, such as mild irritation, bruising, and swelling. These temporary conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
The PRP Vampire Facial Can Help with These Top 3 Signs of Aging
- Skin color becomes grayer because of less blood flow -> PRP will restore color and brightness, diminish dark marks and age spots, as well as even skin tone.
- Facial shape becomes collapsed and droopy as muscle and collagen decrease -> PRP will tighten and lift skin.
- Skin texture becomes less smooth. As a result, the person looks “worn”, or “tired” -> PRP will restore an even skin texture, repair all kinds of surface skin imperfections such as large pores or scarring, as well as diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
