Release Your Inner Glow: Vampire Facials
No matter how hard we fight and deny it, our bodies age whether we like it or not. There are so many things we can do to help our bodies and minds age healthfully and gracefully, and taking good care of our skin is one of them. Also, as the largest human organ, skin beauty companies, doctors, pharmacists, and specialists worldwide have come up with a variety of treatments and procedures that are readily accessible so that taking care of your skin is super simple. From over-the-counter or off-the-shelf to a simple in-and-out visit to your favourite esthetician, skin care is everywhere. As it should be.
Having a strong skin care game is vital to countering the effects of aging, but for some, despite the great efforts they make in doing all the right things for their skin, nothing works. That’s where the Vampire Facial comes into play. Celebrities and influencers once over have boasted the incredible effects of the radiant glow the Vampire Facial can give you, but the truth is, you don’t know just how amazing it is until you try it yourself.
The Vampire Facial works in not-so mysterious ways. In fact, it’s quite logical: human blood is composed of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets are known for their major role in our feature film: helping your body form clots to stop bleeding. However, another role they play is releasing growth factors that help soft tissue heal and produce new cells. With age, our platelet count has been shown to decrease. So, if we found a way to stimulate new cell growth to help our skin promote collagen production and regenerate tissue, then your skin could essentially stay looking eternally young… no wonder they called the procedure the Vampire Facial.
The Vampire Facial plays on its name for two reasons. First, the microneedle that it is used involves a Platelet Rich Plasma (Platelet Rich Plasma) serum that contains the patient’s own blood platelets which is reintroduced into the patient’s skin. This stimulates new cell growth, but is also highly vampire-esque. The second reason is because once the procedure is done, the patient will have a glowing complexion and radiant quality to their skin; that vampire glow. From dark circles and wrinkles to sun damage and scars or imperfections, the Vampire Facial works to counteract the signs of (premature) aging skin from the inside out using the body’s natural resources. It’s completely non-invasive and risk-free.
In a nutshell:
Great for men or women who want to enhance or regenerate a natural plumpness to their face, the Vampire Facial mimics what our bodies do naturally: it encourages the body to use its own natural healing process by stimulating a cell turnover, promoting collagen production and regenerating skin tissue. By drawing a blood sample when you come in, we separate the platelets from the plasma and concentrate it into a serum. We then apply your own supply back into your face. No need for foreign substances or chemical products, just a quick vampire will do the trick.
There are so many benefits to the cosmetic procedure, from firmer and tighter skin to fresher tone and improved texture. You will visibly turn back the clock and look like a brighter, eternally younger you. And the best part? It’s done in broad daylight!
