No, it has nothing to do with vampires! The Vampire Facial at Lubbock Family Medicine combines micro-needling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and new blood vessels, creating a more youthful appearance on the face, neck, and chest.
The Vampire Facial involves a quick, in-office blood draw while the face is numbing. Vampire facial is the nickname that has been coined by the beauty industry. This facial is called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial or therapy. It is a treatment that involves micro needling followed by the application of platelet-rich plasma or PRP on your skin.
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. This procedure also improves the absorbing power of your skin – which means your skin can absorb other skincare products better.
To sum it up, a vampire facial uses your blood to promote healthy cell functioning.
Initially, the blood facial treatment might seem extremely painful, but in reality, it’s not.
Because PRP therapy uses cells from your own body, most people are excellent candidates for the procedure to treat:
The Vampire Facial is not recommended for patients who have blood-related disorders, anemia or cancers of the blood or bone. Those taking blood thinners or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) should stop these medications for a few weeks before treatment and several days following it, based on their own physician’s directions.
