The newest craze in skin care and revitalization in Atlanta has a somewhat intimidating name – the Vampire Facial. This has quickly become a favorite medspa treatment for those seeking total facial rejuvenation since its introduction to the industry in 2011.
The Vampire Facial, also known as PRP treatment/therapy, utilizes platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to promote cell turnover and initiate natural, healthy reparative activity of the skin. PRP treatment uses some of your body’s naturally-occurring substances to kick-start a natural process. Notice a theme here? Despite a name that may sound scary, Vampire Facial treatments are completely safe and natural because they take advantage of things your body produces and uses on its own – just in a more innovative way.
Vampire Facial treatments are used to treat and correct a number of undesirable skin problems, including solar damage, premature wrinkling, uneven tone and pigmentation, acne scars, dark spots, and more. This treatment is an excellent option for anyone seeking a general rejuvenation of their face and overall appearance as well.
Vampire Facial treatments begin with a small amount of blood being drawn. The sample is then placed into a centrifuge, which spins the sample at a very high speed to isolate the blood’s white blood cells, which are then used for healing, and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. A growth factor is a substance in your body (like a vitamin or hormone) that initiates some type of growth – in simpler terms, growth factors act as a sort of energy boost! After centrifuging, we can use the PRP in a specialized way in order to bring about great results.
PRP treatment is a viable option for most patients who seek it, but it isn’t right for everyone in Atlanta. Our specialists would be happy to discuss the benefits of a Vampire Facial treatment with you, address any concerns you may have, and help you make a decision that best fits your unique situation.
