The Vampire Facial Using PRP Therapy
Botox, fillers, facelifts, with so many appearance-enhancing procedures available, it can be hard to choose which one will best give you the results you want.
To add to the wide selection is the trendy Vampire Facial.
This option is becoming more popular due to its effectiveness and lack of severe side-effects.
A Vampire Facial is a natural cosmetic procedure that uses the healing and growth properties of the patient’s blood, rather than introducing serum that alters the skin’s behavior.
At Hazzouri Dental, we are dedicated to offering products and procedures that get our patients looking their best. Besides dermal fillers and Botox treatments, we now offer Vampire Facials as an option for patients to achieve the youthful, vibrant, flawless appearance they’ve always dreamed of.
What is a Vampire Facial?
This scary and mysterious sounding procedure is safe and is simpler than you think. It also provides a natural way to freshen and bring to life dull skin and repair lost elasticity that can cause wrinkles. Its effectiveness has been touted by some of Hollywood’s most well-known celebrities, including Kim Kardashian-West.
What exactly is a vampire facial? A vampire facial involves taking a small amount of the patient’s blood, centrifuging it to separate out the blood platelets and re-injecting the platelets into the patient’s recently microdermed face.
The process can be done in as little as an hour and the only pain a patient experiences is the prick of the needle and some possible tenderness to the face immediately after the procedure.
Patients should expect a slightly sunburned face right after their vampire facial procedure.
It is recommended that patients take a day or two after the procedure to rest and limit the amount of sun exposure to their face. Makeup also should be avoided during this 1-2 day healing process.
Why Blood Platelets?
The process of drawing blood, separating the platelets and reinserting the platelets back into the patient’s face is also known as platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP.
PRP has been used in the medical and dental fields since the 1990s to provide accelerated healing and boost the re-growth of bone, ligament and soft tissue of the body.
PRP has been highly successful due to the healing and growth factors of blood platelets.
Just as platelet-rich plasma therapy is a great treatment option for patients recovering from surgery or injury, this same procedure boosts the turnover of facial skin cells.
This healthy facial skin cell activity increases the skin’s optimal functioning by boosting elastin, collagen, hydration and antioxidant properties.
Who Should Get a Vampire Facial?
Anyone who wants a fresher, smooth and evenly toned facial appearance is a candidate for a PRP therapy vampire facial.
The vampire facial is especially recommended for patients who have premature wrinkles and extensive sun skin damage.
