A vampire facial can boost your skin’s tone and texture, improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and rectify environmental damage for complete facial rejuvenation. At Madrid Dental in Rio Rancho, NM 87124, we look forward to providing our patients with vampire facials to give them a radiant, more youthful complexion and improve the quality of their skin.
What Is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial is a treatment that uses the components of your blood cells to encourage the natural healing capabilities of the skin. PRP is a component of the blood that consists of growth factors, which produce new cells. When directed into the dermal layers, PRP also supports the underlying structure and stimulates collagen production for skin to make it firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
What Problems Can Be Resolved By a Vampire Facial?
A vampire or PRP facial is perfect for treating several common, unattractive skin issues and offers consistent, long-term results. Some of the problems that might be resolved with a vampire facial include:
- Dull skin texture
- Volume loss in the face, neck, and hand areas
- Inflamed pores
- Lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth
- Dark circles, grooves, and hollows underneath the eyes
- Scarring caused by acne or chickenpox
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Mild skin laxity
- Stretch marks
What Is the Process for a Vampire Facial?
The primary step in a vampire facial is to draw a small portion of blood from your arm. This blood is spun in a centrifuge to segregate the plasma from the blood platelets. Using a microneedle device or a sublative laser, our staff will inject the platelets into the skin.
Microneedling is a process that uses a pen device to pierce micro-holes in the skin. These very tiny holes created by the microneedling device will enable the PRP to penetrate more deeply while stimulating the dermal structure to heal itself by regenerating the cells and producing collagen. Sublative laser rejuvenation performs similarly to microneedling but uses controlled radiofrequency energy to create the channels in the dermis.
For individuals who are apprehensive about the discomfort associated with these treatments, we apply topical numbing cream before performing the skin rejuvenation to ensure their comfort. Employing either of these methods for the infusion process allows for deeper penetration of the PRP to the areas of the dermal structure that will produce significant results.
