Kim Kardashian is a true ambassador for the cosmetic industry – publicly promoting many of the non-invasive skin treatments she uses to maintain her Hollywood looks and reputation as a beauty connoisseur. In fact, Kardashian took one of the most famous “selfies” of all time during her Vampire Facial treatment. Since then, the popularity of this facial has sky rocketed, and many other celebrities, have posted their own bloody-faced selfies to Instagram.
Before its rise to fame with the Vampire facial, P.R.P therapy was first used in various medical fields to rejuvenate the body and accelerate healing time. Recently, P.R.P has found a celebrated place in cosmetics. Studies show that P.R.P Hair Restoration increases hair density, thickness, and strength, making it a perfect non-invasive solution for thinning hair. When used in conjunction with skin care treatments, such as Microneedling, microdermabrasion, and even cosmetic injections (known as a vampire face-lift,) P.R.P is shown to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin.
How Does a Plasma Facial Work?
Also known as a plasma facial or a P.R.P facial, a vampire facial combines Microneedling with a P.R.P serum, derived from a sample of the patients own blood. The blood sample is processed in a centrifuge to isolate the plasma, which is full of platelets and human growth factors. To ensure patient comfort, the treatment area is numbed with a topical cream.
The plasma facial begins with a Microneedling treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT. Microneedling promotes skin rejuvenation by creating micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing mechanisms. After the Microneedling treatment, the P.R.P serum is applied to the face, allowing the platelets and growth factors to penetrate the skin via the micro-channels created during the Microneedling treatment. Microneedling with P.R.P is clinically shown to promote cellular turnover and increase the production of collagen and elastin.
