The advent of time affects all of us, eventually. As we age, our facial skin creases, discolors, sags, and wrinkles. Before we know it, you might look in the mirror and feel like you don’t recognize yourself. However, Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body can help you hit pause on facial aging.
We offer several medical spa services in our luxurious Johns Creek office to help make your skin firmer, clearer, and wrinkle-free, and we can even alleviate hyper-pigmentation issues. Our favorite non-surgical procedure for rejuvenating skin is the popular anti-aging treatment known as the vampire facial or the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial.
What Is a Vampire Facial?
Combining microdermabrasion with a layer of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), this procedure helps stimulate new cell growth in areas of application. To put it more simply: a vampire facial uses your own blood, and microscopic puncture wounds, to promote healthier more vibrant skin.
While it sounds scary, the process is relatively painless, simple, and complication-free. After healing, your skin will have a fresher, more youthful appearance.
How Do Vampire Facials Work?
PRP is plasma blood that has been centrifuged and separated. The red blood cells are removed, which leaves a serum of platelets and plasma that’s mixed with a small volume of filler. Then, you will undergo either micro needling or microdermabrasion to kickstart your body’s natural defense system.
Once your skin is open for treatment, the Preserve your Pretty Skin and Body team will apply the mixture to your face. The high platelet content bolsters new cell growth while regenerating skin cells and promoting new cell growth to correct damaged tissue. The filler improves the effect of the plasma in deeper wrinkles.
Afterwards, the plasma is washed off and a therapeutic cream is applied. The entire process happens quickly and requires no anesthesia. You can return to work or whatever else your day entails in as little as a couple of hours. Best of all, aftercare is minimal.
Why Are Vampire Facials the Best Cosmetic Procedure for the Face?
Completely natural and minimally invasive, vampire facials are ideal for treating uneven skin tones, wrinkling, and dry skin. The platelets act like energy boosters for your skin, boosting collagen and elastin, while also antioxidizing and rehydrating dry skin.
In many ways, platelet rich plasma serves the same purpose as high-end dermal fillers. When coupled with quick recovery times and minimal risk, this procedure is our personal favorite facial treatment.
Do Vampire Facials Have Any Side Effects?
Although vampire facials are completely natural and safe, some patients may walk away with mild bruising, raw skin, or mild discomfort from micro needling. However, most of these side effects will subside within a few days.
