What Is A PRP Vampire Facial? 

Don’t let the name fool you, we usually perform the PRP Vampire Facial procedure in the full light of day. The first step of a PRP Vampire Facial treatment is to collect a small amount of your blood via the same process as giving blood at your GP or a donation bank. The blood is then put into a centrifuge which is specially designed to separate & extract a high concentration of platelets. 

The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, act as a natural energy boost. The facial accelerates the body's ability to heal & repair; increasing everything from collagen to elastin, whilst also providing antioxidant and hydrating factors. The results are an improved appearance of fine wrinkles, firmer, tighter & smooth skin. If you suffer from skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, scarring etc, the PRP Vampire Facial can help to treat these skin conditions and maintain great results. 

Who Can Have a PRP Vampire Facial?

PRP Vampire Therapy can be used in any part of the body. But for cosmetic purposes the PRP Vampire Facials is used for:

Skin conditions such as acne & rosacea

Fine lines

Are There Any Risks With PRP Vampire Therapy?

Aside from turning into a creature of the night? We're kidding, as far as risks go, there aren’t as many as you might think!

In fact, the only risk you really run is bruising at the site of the blood draw or micro-needling. Aside from the discomfort of this blood draw (with a needle, no bites!) the vampire facial is extremely safe, as it is your body’s own blood being recycled. 

What Happens During A PRP Vampire Treatment?

Prior to your treatment, your skin will be cleaned and prepared just as it would be for a regular facial. Your DNA Aesthetics specialist will then apply a topical anaesthetic cream, to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible for you. Then, a small blood sample is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the portions of plasma and platelets. The platelet (PRP) portions of your blood are then injected back into the skin via a microneedling treatment.

What Are The Benefits Of PRP Vampire Therapy?

Once you reach the age of 25, the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin begins to slow down. To maintain the elasticity and smoothness of your skin, you should consider treatments such as the PRP Vampire Facial. In addition to the face, this treatment is suitable for your hands, neck, décolletage, and any other sections where you notice the effects of ageing.

Some of the benefits you can experience from PRP Vampire Treatments are:

Smoother & firmer skin
A reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
Removal of acne scars
Injury or surgical scars reduced
A reduction in the appearance of stretch marks
Fresh, youthful, glowing skin
A more even skin tone
