Vampire/PRP Facial

Any skincare expert will tell you that the "vampire facial" was made famous by none other than Kim Kardashian. If you followed the pop culture/reality TV star mogul back in 2013, chances are you probably saw a post on her account featuring her face covered in PRP platelet-rich plasma, which was her own blood.

Not to be alarmed, it wasn’t a crime scene, or Halloween makeup. The PRP used on her face in a process that effectively increases collagen production and rejuvenates skin.

Almost a decade later, and the Vampire facial is still going strong, and celebrities and skincare enthusiasts alike have implemented this seemingly gory practice into their own wellness routines.

Why is this procedure so popular, and how exactly does it work?

The Vampire facial starts with microneedling followed by applying one's own PRP plasma-rich platelet serum. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a common term used in the world of dermatology to describe a minimally invasive procedure where small microinjuries are created in the skin with the use of extremely small  “micro” needles.

Microchannels are produced during this procedure that increases the skin's permeability and simultaneously stimulate growth factor release.

Thus ramping up production of your skin's own collagen—the building block of a firm, bouncy, youthful complexion.

What is PRP?, Who benefits most from it?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is produced after the blood extraction process. When blood is placed in a centrifuge, it separates into distinct layers, one of which is a serum containing high concentrations of platelets (a component in the body's natural healing system) and growth factors, known as PRP.

Microneedling creates channels for the enhanced penetration of PRP serum. The benefit? people who want improvement in acne scars, skin texture issues, fine lines, wrinkles, even stretch marks.
