When it comes to reversing the signs of facial aging without surgery, many people turn to injectable treatments such as fillers and Botox. However, not everyone is comfortable with putting foreign substances into their skin for only temporary results. With today’s advancements in regenerative medicine, there is another, more natural solution to refresh the face. In fact, it uses your body’s own blood supply to turn back the hands of time. Ederra Bella proudly offers the Vampire Facial™, also known as a PRP Facial or Stem Cell Facial.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is a powerful component of your blood, one that contains essential growth factors and bioactive proteins that can restore and repair damaged or aging tissues. PRP and stem cells have been used for decades in other medical fields, such as joint restoration and even hair growth. When used on the face, however, PRP can revitalize your aging complexion as it is absorbed into the deep dermal tissues of your face.
How do does PRP go to work within your skin? The activated platelets, leukocytes and growth factors found in PRP have the ability to stimulate fibroblasts beneath the skin. This triggers tissue renewal, cellular migration and the production of collagen, which we know is a building block for youthful, glowing skin. In doing so, platelet rich plasma can effectively address fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, melasma, scarring and skin discoloration. All this is accomplished in the most natural way – your body’s own blood and its valued regenerative powers.
The Vampire Facial™
The Vampire Facial™ is essentially a way for you to harness the power of the body’s stem cells to promote collagen and rejuvenate and restore the skin. To do this, we take a small sample of your blood and place it into a nearby centrifuge machine to separate the blood platelets. In doing so, the platelet concentration can be nearly tripled! We apply this platelet-rich plasma to your face, which will be treated with micro-needling just before your facial. This allows the PRP to penetrate deeply into the dermal tissues where the natural healing and restoration can occur on a cellular level. The plasma is then washed off your face and a special cream is added before you leave. The whole process is complete in minutes with no downtime.
Whether you suffer from fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture issues or scarring, the you can trust that The Vampire Facial™ is one of the safest and most natural ways to regain confident and youthful skin.
