Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: The Vampire Facial Used by the Stars

24 Mar, 2018 68

You may have heard about Vampire Facials because some of today's hottest celebs swear by them. Kim Kardashian has used Vampire Facials to maintain and enhance her gorgeous and youthful skin, but it's not restricted to celebrity use. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP therapy) is the science behind the Vampire Facial, and it's now available as a simple outpatient treatment at Flawless Skin Center

How PRP Therapy Works

You'll start by getting numbed up. A powerful yet completely safe numbing cream is applied to your face and then allowed 20-30 minutes to take full effect.

Next, a tube of blood is taken from your arm. This is just a quick stick and is over in around a minute. Your blood is then placed in a specialized machine that spins it using centrifugal force. Soon, your blood is separated, and the white platelet rich plasma is used for the treatment.

The PRP is injected directly into your face using ultra-fine microneedles. Thanks to the numbing, you should be comfortable during the treatment. It usually takes only around 20 minutes to deliver the treatment.

PRP Therapy Results

If you want glowing and youthful skin, the results of PRP therapy will surely please you! You can expect to have a red face afterwards, but that will fade over the coming days. The PRP stimulates even the deepest layers of your skin, and you can expect to see new cellular and collagen growth over the next 4-6 weeks. PRP therapy can give you a younger looking face with less lines and wrinkles -- no surgery required!
