A vampire or Dracula facial is the catchy term for a PRP facial, which involves taking a sample of blood from your body (usually from your arm), spinning it in a machine to separate the plasma and the red blood cells, and then injecting or microblading the plasma back into your face.
The machine gets rid of the red blood cells to leave a clear liquid – the platelet rich plasma – which then gets pushed into the skin through tiny injections or microneedling.
Why? Because stem cells or PRP are magical for skin regeneration. They encourage healing and replenishing, meaning that they can be used for everything from reducing scars and stretch marks to getting rid of wrinkles. You’ll often hear of stem cell treatments being used for burn victims or those with serious scars – the PRP facial is about taking this advanced medicine and using it for cosmetic benefits.
The treatment will leave you with increased collagen levels, smoother, fuller skin, and improved skin health, as well as reducing the appearance of scars and fine lines.
