If you are looking for a natural treatment option to improve your skin’s health and appearance, Innovation Dermatology is pleased to offer the “Vampire-Like Facial.” This minimally invasive treatment uses a patient’s own blood to induce a healing and repair response from the body, ultimately resulting in rejuvenating skin benefits.
The “Vampire-Like Facial” as it is often called, is a treatment that uses your body’s natural healing powers to revive skin for a more youthful appearance. The concept involves harnessing your blood growth factors for skin rejuvenation. The treatment uses your own blood to promote the healthy activity of your skin cells. Our blood is composed of red blood cells and serum, which contain our white bloods and platelets. Platelets contain growth factors which help our skin function optimally, increasing things like collagen to elastin, while also bringing antioxidant and hydration properties.
The plasma is injected back into the skin by puncturing the skin using a micro-needle. It then goes to work releasing growth factors to stimulate collagen production and encourage cell and tissue regeneration. The final result is a natural boost to your skin texture and added volume, with an overall rejuvenation.
A “Vampire-Like Facial” is often combined with other treatments like Co2 Laser Rejuvenation and Microneedling.
What can a “Vampire-Like Facial” Treat?
A “Vampire-Like Facial” begins by painlessly drawing a small amount of your blood, much like a regular blood test. The blood is then run through a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. You will then receive a Microneedling treatment prior to the application of the plasma. The number of sessions required depends upon the severity of skin damage and the areas being treated. Approximately 4 sessions are required. Most often there is no recovery time at all. Some patients may experience minor swelling and bruising for 1-2 days.
