I’m sure you have heard about Vampire Facelifts or Vampire Facials. It was boosted to fame by Kim Kardashian who was one of first TV stars who showed everyone on camera how she is using this anti-aging treatment. Although most commonly known as Vampire Facelift it is in fact technically referred to as a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) facial.
Although it has been around for many years, it has become a very popular beauty procedure used by many, as it is so simple and incredibly effective.
So why is it so special? Here are a few key reasons
It is fast-acting with visible results after 1 treatment
It is natural, using your own blood to enrich your skin.
There are no dangerous side effects
Results always look natural unlike some botox or surgery results.
It actually works. A quick search online will reveal thousands of reviews and customer articles and about the positive results achieved.
It improves texture, scarring, complexion and dry skin.
When compared to some of the top brand anti-ageing creams or other procedures, it's actually one of the most inexpensive treatments.
The Vampire Facelift or PRP facial is a lot simpler than you might expect. It uses plasma separated from your own blood. At Glam Skin Clinic we take a small sample of your blood and place it into a centrifuge to separate the rich platelets from the blood. We then inject the "platelet plasma" back into your skin at specific targeted areas.
What happens next is a very fascinating and natural procedure! When PRP treatment is carried out, a healing process begins in your body as growth and healing factors are being released. The injected platelets trigger and stimulate fibrobassta to produce new collagen formations which improve blood supply to tissues, triggering the production of a new layer of skin tissue. This new tissue is rich in collagen, something that our facial skin starts to lack as we age.
PRP is also commonly used for treating scars , especially acne scars where it has often been used with some outstanding results. Initially the treatment was only used to help with scarring before its anti-ageing benefits were realised.
The regeneration process starts immediately! After the PRP is administrated in the targeted area, high levels of tissue growth and regeneration factors rapidly start. After the treatment you can repeat the process in to further improve results. At Glam Skin Clinic for Vampire Facials Belfast, in our experience, patients will see noticeable improvements after just one treatment. Many of our customers will have 2-3 treatments and see some amazing results.
It’s really that simple!
