Vampire Facial and Facelift Q & A
What is the Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial is an increasingly popular procedure that use PRP to enhance your appearance in different ways. PRP is a hot new tool in medicine that’s derived from your blood. It’s rich in growth factors, which promote cell regeneration.
The Vampire Facial is a microneedling procedure combined with an application of PRP.
Your provider creates evenly spaced microchannels in your skin using fine needles. This stimulates the production of collagen to treat wrinkles, lines, large pores, and other not-so-attractive skin features.
With PRP, the results are enhanced and may appear faster.
Vampire Facial Rejuvenation
Vampire Facial Rejuvenation involves direct injections of PRP into the skin on your face to make your skin plumper, reduce wrinkles and lines, and diminish scars.
How is PRP collected for a Vampire Facial or Rejuvenation?
PRP contains platelets from your blood suspended in liquid plasma. Platelets communicate with one another to facilitate the healing process, and plasma is the liquid base component of your blood that allows it to flow like a liquid.
To get PRP, the team draws a small sample of your blood. They process the blood sample in a centrifuge. The spinning motion of the centrifuge swiftly separates the platelets from the red and white blood cells, and the remaining platelets and plasma are injection-ready instantly.
How can I customize my Vampire procedure?
Vampire Facials and PRP are highly beneficial on their own, but you don’t have to stop with just one treatment. To enhance your results, you can combine your PRP procedure with other treatments available at Wrinkle Fairy.
The team analyzes your skin and asks about your concerns and personal preferences. Once they get an idea of your goals and ideal results, they can design and execute a specialized treatment plan with PRP, as well as Botox®, facial fillers, laser rejuvenation procedures, or any combination of the three. We even have a team of surgeons you can work with to see if a surgical approach would be beneficial.
With multiple procedures in your plan, you can enjoy outstanding results that look natural and are easy to maintain with a simple regular skin care routine.
