The Vampire PRP Facial: Hollywood’s Secret to Looking Younger

As women and men, we go through a lot to enhance our appearance. We want to be more beautiful, and hope to reverse the aging process with the latest treatment. When reality stars, celebrities and models started posting photos of themselves undergoing a “Vampire Facial” a few years ago, showing a bit of blood on the face, people were intrigued and a little grossed out. Many people thought that the treatment was taking it too far. Until they saw the results. Now, one of the hottest facials, also known as a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Facial, has skin glowing and visibly younger looking. At Regenerative Aesthetics & Lasers NW we offer the PRP Facial to boost collagen, which visibly improves your skin and returns that youthful glow!

What is a Vampire (PRP) Facial?

The Vampire (PRP) Facial isn’t nearly as scary as it looks – it’s painless with a topical numbing cream, and the process of extracting the plasma is similar to a routine blood draw that you get at a doctor’s office. A PRP Facial is an extremely safe, and a natural alternative to using chemicals or injections because it uses your body’s own plasma, which contains enhanced growth factors and stimulates collagen production.

What Can You Expect During a Treatment?

First you will have a consultation with our aesthetician to determine your expectations and goals. You’ll either have your procedure that day or schedule it for a future date. During a treatment, the aesthetician will draw your blood then spin it down to separate the blood from the plasma. The concentrated plasma is then applied to your skin for maximum absorption. You can expect the following on the day of your PRP Facial:

  1. Your treatment area will be cleansed to prepare for the procedure
  2. Our physician will note the areas on your face that you specifically want to target for fine lines and wrinkles or to plump the area once collagen is stimulated.
  3. Our physician will draw blood from your arm, which is the same procedure as a regular blood test.
  4. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge for 5 to 10 minutes, which spins the blood at a very high speed to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood. This process also activates the concentrated growth factors in the plasma.
  5. An aesthetician will then apply a topical anesthesia or numbing cream to ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort.
  6. Our physician will then inject the concentrated PRP into specific points on your face and apply it topically for best results.

What Are the Main Benefits?

PRP is a treatment that was once known for healing professional sports injuries due to its enhanced growth factors is now known for reversing the signs of aging. A PRP Facial improves fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the appearance of scars, sun damage and even dark circles. The treatment stimulates collagen production. It’s hydrating, provides healing properties in the form of concentrated plasma, and helps to repair delicate tissue – such as the thinner skin under the eyes. A boost in collagen creates a more youthful appearance, and results can last for months to years after a PRP Facial Rejuvenation treatment. Typically, one to two treatments are necessary, depending on your specific skincare needs.
