Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a “natural filler” treatment that gives a more youthful appearance to the skin with minimal downtime. There are virtually no risks of allergies or sensitivity as PRP is derived from your blood. PRP is blood plasma containing high concentrations of platelets that stimulate stem cells to help the body regenerate and heal faster. PRP improves overall skin texture, decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, and plumps hollowing areas such as grooves, cheeks, and temples.
Why is PRP Therapy Necessary Aspect in Today’s Aesthetic Industry?
Around 25, your body’s collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline significantly for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate its production rate. Collagen production is stimulated when skin cell trauma occurs. This occurs during a vampire facial when the tiny needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin during the microneedling portion of your treatment.
Long-Term Benefits of PRP Facial Rejuvenation for the Skin
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles are the most common reasons people seek a vampire facial. These common signs of ageing are treated as cellular turnover is promoted. Old skin cells are recycled, and new skin cells, collagen and elastin are formed. Fine lines and wrinkles are partially eliminated as your facial skin tightens naturally in response to the micro-injuries produced by the treatment. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.
Tighter, Firmer Skin
As stated previously, collagen is also essential for tight, firm skin. Your skin starts to sag as you age, but wrinkles and lines don’t always form. Collagen plumps up the skin. Some people may use a vampire facial to plump up their lips. Others use it to re-contour their cheeks without requiring an invasive medical procedure. Regardless of your skin insecurities, be sure to ask how a vampire facial can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic.
Improved Moisture Retention
The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected, and the deeper layers of your skin are from outside irritants. A strong skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. Moreover, it helps to unclog your pores, making your skin more receptive to prescription moisturisers. The effects of a vampire facial on pores are a little confusing because treatment can reduce the appearance of pores.
Enhanced Skin Tone and Texture
Suppose you have acne scars, surgical scars, scars from traumatic injury, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and other forms of poor skin tone or texture. In that case, you can benefit from a facial enhancement with PRP. With old skin cells giving birth to new, healthy ones, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing improvement in the appearance of your skin just a few short days after one vampire facial.

Before your PRP facial begins, your facial skin is gently yet thoroughly cleansed. This ensures no dirt, dust, pollen, pollutant, makeup or any other imperfection on your skin that could cause an adverse reaction to treatment. Once your skin care professional has sanitised your face, he will apply a local anaesthetic to the treatment site. Indeed, the thin, delicate skin around your eyes, hairline and mouth is susceptible. Yet while you may feel the treatment being applied, you will not feel any pain or discomfort.
Treatment Is Quick
The PRP process may seem like it would take a while. First, your blood has to be drawn into syringes. Then, it has to be placed into a centrifuge and processed. This processing involves cleaning the blood, so it is ready for transfer and injection and separating the components of your blood by mass. It doesn’t take long at all to draw your blood. Then, it only takes three to five minutes to run your blood through the centrifuge. Finally, the therapy only takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size and number of the areas you are trying to treat.
Some anti-ageing treatments last only a week or two before you need to receive them again. While you may need four 30-minute microneedling treatments, each requiring an additional half-hour waiting for the anaesthetic to start working, you will only need half the number of treatments to get the same results with a vampire facial.
Skin rejuvenation typically takes four treatments, and each of these sessions needs to be spaced four to eight weeks apart. With microneedling enhanced by PRP, you only need five sessions to enhance the appearance of keloid scars drastically. Acne scars can be healed in two to four treatment sessions.
No Downtime Is Required
Just as we all want to look younger and avoid looking run-down, we don’t have time to look any less than our best at all times. With traditional microneedling, you can experience significant redness for five to seven days. With the addition of platelet-rich plasma to your treatment, you can eliminate this downtime. Thanks to PRP, the “micro-injuries” created by the microneedling are healed as quickly as they are inflicted.
