The ‘proper’ name for a vampire facial is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. 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.
In PRP, a needle is used to draw blood from the client’s arm. The blood is then spun in a machine, to remove the platelets. The plasma from the blood is extracted, and spattered on the client’s face using tiny acupuncture-style needles to rejuvenate their face.
Injecting PRP in under eyes is the only way to lighten dark circles. The darkness under the eye is due to cell death and the PRP injected in this area will create new cells that will lighten the area by regenerating cell growth.
The eye area is a particularly fragile region in which may appear bluish coloration due to a microcirculation disorder, sometime associated with a darker area under the lower eyelid. Growth factors present in A-PRP stimulate the microcirculation around your eye, its brightness is improved and skin around the eyes recovers its tonicity.
The natural aging of your skin is due to an imbalance between the rate of destruction and renewal of cells and collagen. By promoting the process of natural tissue regeneration, mesotherapy injections of A-PRP improve skin quality and smoothes fine lines of the face, decollete and hands.
A-PRP injections are also an effective treatment of stretch, acne marks or for hypertrophic scars and lightening to removing stretch marks.
