The Vampire Facelift nothing to do with vampires!
The ‘proper’ name for a vampire facial is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.
But what is it and how does it work?
The PRP is extracted from your blood. The blood is rich in platelets that have extremely high levels of growth factors. When applied to your skin, these growth factors help in boosting cell turnover rate. The growth factors boost collagen and elastin production and increase the skin’s hydration levels. They also infuse your skin with antioxidants.
The Vampire Facelift procedure.
This procedure also improves the absorbing power of your skin – which means your skin can absorb other skin care products better.
It’s essentially a regenerative therapy, which uses nothing but the patient’s own blood.
Platelets are tiny blood cells which play a crucial part in helping the body stop bleeding – as well as repairing damaged blood vessels and cells.
You could think of them as little powerhouses, which release proteins for growth when they come in contact with the body’s tissue.
