What is a “vampire facial,” a.k.a. PRP treatment?

A “vampire facial” or a PRP facial is a treatment that may be able to help accelerate wound healing, stimulate collagen, improve hyperpigmentation, and boost overall skin quality of the patient.

It is a therapy produced from the patient’s own blood that is made up of plasma and a high concentration of platelets. It is injected into the injured area, thereby introducing a high concentration of platelets (as well as growth factors and cytokines) to the injury site, helping it heal.

The PRP facial has countless benefits to the patient’s health, including:

  • Reduction of wrinkles;
  • Plump up sagging skin;
  • Gets rid of deep creases;
  • Improvement one’s complexion;
  • Diminishment acne scars;
  • Improvement hyperpigmentation and acne scars in darker skin

Besides that, research shows that combining microneedling with PRP reduces acne scars effectively, and PRP injections in the scalp may boost hair growth and thickness, preventing early hair loss.

Who should avoid a PRP facial treatment?

Despite all of the benefits of this regenerative therapy, it is not recommended for everyone. In general, anyone with inflamed skin (due to acne or rosacea), active skin infections, or easily irritated skin should avoid giving the “vampire facial” a go. Additionally, if you’re averse to pain or bruise easily, you may want to reconsider trying the treatment.

Doctors emphasize the importance of receiving treatments from certified dermatologists to prevent scarring. PRP facials can further minimize recovery time from other cosmetic procedures like microneedling and laser resurfacing.
