Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, popularly referred to as a “Vampire Facial,” is offered in West Palm Beach for patients who want a supple youthful look. Don’t let the name deter you, the Vampire Facial is an aesthetic procedure that is safe, effective, and sure to breathe new life into your skin. The name is derived from the use of the patient’s own blood to restore a youthful look (hence the vampire reference!) As science continues to advance, these kinds of facials are becoming more effective than ever before as we find new and innovative ways to restore healthy, glowing skin.
This process involves micro-needling on the face before applying platelet-rich plasma, retrieved from the patient’s own blood, and applied into the skin. The platelets encourage collagen and elastin production, increasing your skin’s hydration level, and creating a glow that will surely turn heads.
How Blood is a Healing Factor in Vampire Facials in West Palm Beach
Our body is an incredible machine and contains all sorts of naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and healing proteins. Human blood, in particular, contains plasma and other particles – red blood, white blood cells, and platelets which help in the healing process and blood clotting process. The clotting process is the body’s way of protecting itself from blood loss after a wound or injury, and also helps in the production of collagen.
Among medical aesthetics, platelet-rich plasma is known for its healing ability, collagen production, and stimulating tissue regeneration. The PRP concentrate is not red like you might expect! After extraction, the platelet-rich plasma is a light golden liquid serum, which is then expertly introduced into the face.
The process of a Vampire Facial in West Palm Beach is fairly straightforward:
- A small amount of blood is taken from the vein in the arm,
- The blood is placed into a centrifuge and spun at the highest speed to enable the separation of the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components
- Microneedling is then performed on the face to make unnoticeable punctures in the skin before the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is administered to the treatment sites.
- Your own blood is used to supercharge healing to achieve youthful-looking skin.
Benefits of a Vampire Style Facial West Palm Beach
INCREASE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
At around age 25, the rate at which the body produces collagen drops. The production continues to decline significantly the more a person ages and the quality of the collagen produced decreases, giving room for visibly aging skin that lacks the youthful glow.
Luckily, there is a solution. The vampire facial stimulates the collagen production in your face by causing trauma to skin cells. As soon as the skin is penetrated via microneedling, existing collagen begins to heal the skin. While this is happening, your body begins to produce new, stronger, and healthier collagen.
The result? Increased elasticity and a supple glow provide the anti-aging results you have been looking for.
REDUCE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
The vampire facial helps recycle old skin cells, giving room for new, healthy skin cells and collagen to form. Wrinkles and fine lines are partly eliminated as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the injury induced by the micro-needling treatment procedure. Patients who undergo Vampire Facials notice a significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in a short amount of time.
TIGHTER FIRMER SKIN
As you age, the skin on your face begins to thin out, causing it to sag. Parts of your face, like your lips and cheeks, might become gaunt and noticeably thin. Collagen production is essential to achieve tight and firm skin, and it is this collagen production that is stimulated by Vampire Facials. As collagen helps to make your skin plump, many individuals choose to utilize a vampire facial to plump their lips, while others use it to plump their cheeks.
