What is Vampire Therapy?

21/04/2016

Its not just vampires that are using blood to seek eternal youth, we can now use it to boost skin in new 'Vampire' therapy treatments that helps keep skin looking youthful.

Made famous by Kim Kardashian and already hot on the celebrity circuit, The Vampire Facial® uses properties from a your own blood to restore skin vitality.

A small amount of blood taken from the patient is processed in a centrifuge to extract all the platelets, plasma and growth factors. The red cells settle to the bottom, plasma rises to the top and nutrient rich platelets are in the middle. Using micro needles, the rich platelets and plasma (or PRP - platelet rich plasma) are then injected back into the face. The impact of the needles create tiny injuries, serving as a catalyst for the platelets to work their magic.

Platelets release their growth factors — which are other chemicals that help to really direct the initial phases of the healing response and are first to the scene when you injure yourself. The goal of the procedure is to stimulate collagen production, a key factor for diminishing wrinkles and improving the quality of your skin. 

  

This non-surgical face-lift alternative which is safe, effective, and has proven itself to produce outstanding results.
