PRP “Vampire” Facial – Englewood, NJ
The “vampire” facial is an innovative, new, state-of-the-art cosmetic procedure that utilizes the patient’s own “growth factor” – found in their blood platelets – to stimulate the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. The vampire facial derives its spooky name from the fact that the patient’s own blood is used – but there is nothing scary at all about the procedure.
The patient’s blood is simply drawn, as it would be for a routine blood test. Then the blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets – which contain up to 8 times the “growth factor” of plain blood. This “Platelet Rich Plasma” or “PRP” – is then injected back into the face using ultra-fine microneedles.
The patient’s own concentrated growth factor then stimulates the skin to produce collagen and elastin at an accelerated rate. The renewed collagen and elastin builds tighter, plumper skin cells – which smoothes out wrinkles and lines, and improves skin tightness, tone and elasticity. The result is a dramatically more youthful appearance.
