5 Benefits of Vampire Facial / Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Facial Rejuvenation
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma combines two elements: plasma, or the liquid portion of your blood, and platelets, or blood cells that play a key role in your body’s natural healing process. By using your blood cells to amplify your body’s natural ability to heal, platelet-rich plasma can rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
5 Benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma
1. Stimulate Collagen Production
Whether you’re dismayed by fine lines, moderate wrinkles, or severe folds or you have other visible skin issues, there’s an excellent chance that a vampire facial will enhance the quality of your skin through increased collagen production. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a vampire facial when the minuscule needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the microneedling portion of your treatment.
As soon as your skin is penetrated, existing collagen starts to heal the skin. At the same time, your body starts to grow new, stronger, healthier collagen. This higher-quality collagen takes a couple of weeks to grow. However, you will notice immediate skin tightening. You’ll just notice that the results of your treatment continue to improve for several weeks after treatment.
2. Plump Sagging Skin
Plasma-rich therapy treatment can dramatically reverse years of skin damage in one session. By penetrating deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and connective tissue regeneration, the skin will tighten and appear more lifted post-treatment.
3. Diminish Acne Scars
Many people between the ages of 18 to 30 struggle with acne. If you are looking to alleviate the damage caused by acne, consider PRP acne scar injections. These injections contain a concentration of platelets, growth factors, stem cells, and other components which initiate neocollagenesis – the process of forming new collagen. By inserting the PRP serum under the scars, dermatologists can reduce skin depression and stimulate new collagen production.
4. Treat Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is a condition in which your skin appears discolored or blotchy due to an excess of melanin in the skin. Hyperpigmentation issues can be addressed through microneedling with platelet-rich plasma, which creates tiny openings in the skin to promote collagen production. In turn, issues such as scar hyperpigmentation, melasma, or sun spots, can be remedied by platelet-rich plasma, helping your skin stay smooth and healthy-looking all year long.
5. Improve Hair Health & Volume - Platelet-rich plasma can accelerate healing in many areas of the body, including hair follicles. This treatment reduces hair loss and increases the diameter of hairs and the density of hair growth.
