The Vampire Facial® is a simple highly effective procedure for rejuvenating the skin. It combines the use of Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP) derived from your own blood, which is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling device the Skinpen™ ( Collagen Induction Therapy), to help smooth your skin improving the texture and colour without the need for injections.
The Vampire Facial® procedure includes taking your (similar to a blood test) spinning it down to remove the platelet-rich plasma which is applied to the face. The Skinpen™ is then applied to impregnate it, between 1 – 3 millimetres into the skin, depending upon the area of the face we are working on. The Skinpen™ has been clinically proven to induce skin rejuvenation with collagen repair by creating tiny micro channels in the skin to allow penetration of the PRP. The PRP stimulates new blood vessels, collagen, and elastin, thus accelerating and enhancing rejuvenation and regeneration.
The Vampire Facial® is excellent for those suffering from Rosacea, acne, sensitive skin, scarring, sun damage or simply desire to maintain beautiful skin. The healing and anti-inflammatory effects of PRP work to correct skin problems and to strengthen the integrity of the skin to prevent future skin problems.
New collagen is growing and generating within 3-5 weeks of having The Vampire Facial®, creating which is you will begin to see improvement in the skin quality, colour and texture.
Benefits of The Vampire Facial® include:
The improvement is gradual and results are cumulative, so, while people have seen great results with just one treatment, having a course of 3-4 treatments will give you the best outcome.
Your initial consultation for The Vampire Facial® will include a full assessment of your skin and a personalised treatment plan including appropriate medical grade skincare. Ideally your skin will need to prepped with skincare for a minimum of 4 weeks before the treatment to ensure optimal results.
The treatment appointment takes about 60 minutes. After a consent process and photography, numbing cream is applied. A small collection of blood ( like blood test) is withdrawn and placed in a centrifuge for 8 minutes separating the plasma and platelets from your red blood cells. The plasma contains platelets which contains numerous growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration and remodelling. The PRP is then applied to the skin and the micro-needling device is rolled over the skin. A small amount may also injected into the skin around the eyes or neck lines if needed.
