Despite its bone-chilling name, the Vampire Facial is anything but scary. As one of the newest skin rejuvenation techniques within the cosmetic surgery field, the Vampire Facial, formally called the PRP facial, has been made popular in recent years by celebrities like Kim Kardashian.
PRP facials, or platelet-rich plasma injections, apply personal platelets from the patient’s own blood to restore skin’s vitality. Because your using an all-natural substance, the procedure is considered highly natural and safe.
How do PRP facials work?
First, Dr. Busso will draw blood from the patient’s arm. The blood is placed into a processing unit that separates the platelets from the white blood cells. Similarly, serum is separated from the red blood cells. The final, concentrated mixture contains growth factors, platelets and white blood cells for the ultimate skin reconstructive emulsion.
After your personal blend is created, the plasma is inserted into a micro-needle tool. Each needle makes a microscopic hole on the skin surface to allow the PRP formula to absorb more rapidly.
The entire process takes between 15 and 45 minutes. Dr. Busso will offer a local anesthetic to minimize pain and numbs the injection site. Most patients feel little to no discomfort when undergoing a PRP facial, but may see some redness following the procedure. Depending on the condition of your skin, the number of treatments may vary. Patients often see results in as little as one to three facials*.
