Want to turn back the hands of time? Reverse sun damage? Erase deep wrinkles and crow’s feet? How about erasing deep acne scars and pitting? Stretch marks? Finally, there is a surgical free option that achieves these goals. The Vampire Facial also as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), utilizes your own body's healing ability to stimulate skin recovery and smoothing. Available as both an injectable and topical, PRP is on the cutting edge of regenerative therapies.
Is The Vampire Facial Right For Me?
The Vampire Facial Procedure is an autologous platelet and fibrin processing system, which uses your own blood to prepare a product enabling the administration of your concentrated platelets and tissue building elements (Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP). In the Vampire Facial, PRP can be injected under the eyes, forehead, and smile lines as well as into deep wrinkles to stimulate collagen regrowth allowing the area to tighten and regain the youthful glow that you once had. Skin rejuvenation with PRP can be done on the neck, Décolleté, and back of hands as well. PRP can also be applied topically and penetrated deep into the skin with the use of Réjuvapen™.
Where is the PRP applied?
The Vampire Facial prepared PRP can be applied just below the surface of your skin or topically and treated with the Réjuvapen™ which allows the PRP to penetrate into your skin.
Is the Vampire Facial System Safe?
Used on thousands of patients worldwide, Vampire Facial has been shown to be both safe and effective. Vampire Facial contains only autologous components and no severe adverse reactions have been reported (nodules, bumps or granulomas).
Are there any side effects?
Since Vampire Facial uses your own blood and does not contain any animal or synthetic components, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction and there have been no reported allergic reactions to date. Consequently, skin allergy testing is unnecessary prior to treatment. However, if you have a history of allergies please inform your physician. There have been no known serious side effects reported in actual usage. However, you may experience some common reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, bruising, swelling, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site. These temporary conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.
What result can I expect?
The treatment will provide a gradual increase in volume by helping to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Following your treatment, you will see immediate results. Once the initial swelling goes down, it may take up to 3 weeks to see sustained volume gain.
How is treatment with Vampire Facial performed?
Vampire Facial yields a natural biologically-active PRP, loaded with viable platelets that can be applied in a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. At Essence Skin Clinic our specialist and nurse will use a variety of pain management techniques during treatment to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
Will my skin become noticeably hard to the touch?
As this is a natural process using your own biology, there are no known such associated risks.
Does Vampire Facial produce permanent results?
Although not permanent, Vampire Facial PRP offers natural and lasting effects.
Do I need more than one treatment? Desired results may be achieved in just one visit, but only your medical provider can determine the best treatment approach.
