If you are going through menopause, you have likely experienced many changes in your body, especially with your skin. Because your hormone levels are going through a transformation, and estrogen levels are dropping, it can make your skin sag, thin, and wrinkle, leading to advanced signs of aging.
Fortunately, you can relieve these skin-related effects of aging. At Ederra Bella, a luxury plastic surgery center and medical spa in Johns Creek, Georgia, we have our thumb on the best anti-aging solutions. One of the best treatments for aging skin is the PRP Facial, better known as the Vampire Facial. Find out what’s involved in the Vampire Facial and how it can help you fight the signs of aging.
Vampire Facial for Treating Aging Skin
The Vampire Facial received its name because it involves the use of a patient’s own blood for regenerative purposes. By using your own platelet rich plasma (PRP), you’ll stimulate the growth of collagen and elasticity in your skin cells.
Although this treatment sounds scary, it really isn’t. In fact, it is minimally invasive and effective at removing wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, while evening out your skin’s texture. The procedure is recommended for those dealing with sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes known as crow’s feet.
How Does the Vampire Facial Work?
After your blood is extracted, it is separated using a centrifuge. This separates the red and white blood cells, and the result is a concentrated plasma that is rich in platelets.
Before your treatment, your face will be cleansed, exfoliated and toned. Then, the platelet rich plasma is injected into the face using a microneedling technique. This treatment is quick and effective and requires no anesthesia. You can even return to work in a few hours following the procedure.
