The Vampire Facial is a procedure which combines platelet rich plasma (PRP) with the use of sterile microneedle dermal stimulation. It has become popular thanks to celebrities having the procedure to keep their skin looking camera ready and glowing.
There is a difference between the Vampire Facial and The Vampire Facelift. The Vampire Facial does not include any injection with a syringe. The PRP (platelet rich plasma) is spread over the skin and the fine needles of the microneedle device creates “entry pores” to the top layers of the skin.
In a Vampire Facelift, a syringe is used to inject PRP and/or PRFM (platelet rich fibrin matrix) under the skin.
The medical micro needle procedure using the Dermapen is a method of “collagen induction therapy” also referred to as “CIT”. The small entries into the dermis cause the skin to respond with collagen which softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as superficial sun damage.
The platelet rich plasma (PRP) delivery to the dermis further enhances the micro needle treatment so collagen and other skin enhancing support is stimulated by the growth factors in the platelet rich plasma (PRP). The platelet rich plasma (PRP) also has factors which stimulate blood supply to the skin. This creates a look of glow and luster to the skin which is unique to platelet rich plasma.
