Vampire Facial/ Facelift
Your Own Blood Can Rejuvenate Your Face with a Vampire Facial
This Platelet Rich Plasma treatment has been used to treat elite athlete’s injuries for some time, but has only recently been recognised as an anti-ageing treatment, and is now in high demand at cosmetic clinics around the world.
So what is a Vampire Facial? In the quest against ageing, some people are turning to the same substance vampires use to stay forever young: blood. Don’t fret, they are not drinking it, but have their own blood harnessed and the plasma reintroduced into the desired areas of their face, neck or hands to revitalise their skin. It is a great treatment for maintaining that fresh look as your skin cells are re-energised, collagen production is boosted and the overall tone and texture of the skin is greatly improved.
This medical grade facial treatment is more penetrating than a regular facial, but the recovery time is quick - clients can notice results in a couple of days. However, as this procedure causes a bit of light bleeding and swelling, the social downtime is approximately forty eight hours, so you’ll want to wait a while before showing off your new and improved skin.
The good news is that it is safe and there is no risk of an allergic reaction as one's own cells are used in the skin treatment. Our clinic nurse draws a vial of the patient’s blood which is then spun to separate the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from the red blood cells. The PRP is then applied topically to the skin during a Dermastamp treatment – a process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes to allow the transdermal delivery of the PRP. The growth factors in the platelets work like “magic” to encourage increased collagen production and new blood flow to the area treated, resulting in younger appearing skin. Results last six months to a year.
The treatment rejuvenates the skin and enhances tissue regeneration, evening out the overall complexion. For years this liquid gold in the blood has been used to accelerate the recovery of injured muscles and is fast becoming a popular cosmetic treatment, plumping up the skin and reducing fine lines & wrinkles.
