We understand from the get-go, the term might seem a bit too eerie, sending chills down your spine. But rest assured, it's far from being gory. Originating from the aesthetic clinic realms, vampire facials have taken the world by storm, making a splashing entry in the sector of skin and facial improvements.

A vampire facial, in the simplest of terms, involves two primary components: micro-needling and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). It's the fusion of these treatments that creates a whole vigilant skincare regime. The process begins with micro-needling, where tiny needles prick the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen growth and skin tightening. This part isn't scary at all - it's just giving our skin a minor nudge to start its rejuvenation process.

Next comes the part that's given this facial its distinctive name - the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Commonly used for wound healing and hair restoration, PRP therapy makes use of the patient's own blood. A small blood sample is drawn, processed to extract plasma rich in growth factor and promptly applied to the face. It's these very growth factors that aid healing, reshaping, refining, and adding an undeniable glow to our skin.

One standout aspect of vampire facials is their reduced treatment sessions when compared to standard micro-needling treatments. Results also tend to vary, based on individual factors like skin sensitivity, genes, and lifestyle. However, the results tend to be beneficial, with visible changes approximately six months post-treatment.

Now let's talk about recovery. There's always a bit of swelling, a dash of bruising, and a sprinkle of pain been reported post-treatment. We see this healing period as our skin's downtime, which generally lasts for 2-3 days. Aggressive treatments might call for more healing time, but we assure you the results are worth the wait.

In essence, vampire facials at Skin Reform's Laser & Aesthetic Clinic are not just another fad. It's a revolution, marking a new era in non-surgical procedures aimed at improving our skin aesthetic. A step forward towards carving a confident, radiant you.

While many of you may already be familiar with concepts of non-surgical procedures for skin and facial improvements, some jargon in this industry, like Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) may still feel a bit elusive. It's time for us to break down what PRP really is and how it's vital to treatments like the vampire facial.

PRP is an acronym for Platelet-Rich Plasma, which is derived from your own blood. During a PRP treatment, a small sample of a patient's blood is taken and put through a centrifugation process. This method separates the blood components and extracts the Platelet-Rich Plasma. Here at Skin Reform, we differentiate ourselves by implementing the superior DrPRP system with specially designed kits that enable two centrifugation processes. The result? A super-concentrated PRP that can yield far better results.

PRP is densely packed with growth factors derived from your own blood plasma. These growth factors play a pivotal role in cellular regeneration and tissue repair. They act as healing agents, helping to mend damaged areas of the skin. It's the natural spark that nudges your body towards rejuvenation.

Our bespoke approach and superior system allow us to effectively treat various areas. Not limited to the face, we also offer the option of treating the neck, décolleté, and hands all in one session. Our adept use of both injection mesotherapy techniques and microneedling ensure that this super-concentrated PRP is delivered precisely to the areas it's needed the most.

Some of you might wonder - What about dermal fillers? While dermal fillers mimic your skin’s natural chemistry with a gel-like substance, PRP therapy is actually kickstarting your own natural cellular procedures. The difference is akin to filling a bottle with water versus encouraging a spring to bubble up from the ground. Dermal fillers are absorbed by the body within 6 months to a year, needing follow-up treatments. By contrast, the effects of PRP therapy can last for 1 to 2 years. Plus, PRP therapy is even applicable where dermal fillers might be potentially unsafe. Isn't that fascinating?

When the term 'vampire facial' is thrown around, it's easy for one's imagination to run wild. Rest assured, these revolutionary skin and facial improvements are far less sinister than they sound.

Step 1: Blood Draw

To kick-start your vampire facial - also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy - we need to draw a small amount of blood. Think about the volume of a tablespoon, or 10 to 15 milliliters. As far as blood draws go, it's comparatively minimal, isn't it?

The blood draw is performed in a controlled clinical environment, typically Skin Reform's Laser & Aesthetic Clinic. Contrary to common misconceptions, this part of the procedure is relatively painless, performed with the utmost precision and care by our trained medical professionals.

Step 2: Plasma Separation

Now that we have the blood, the magic starts. The drawn blood is placed in a centrifuge. This machine spins at a high speed, separating the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells.

Why does this matter? The plasma and platelets contain a large concentration of growth factors. These elements are effectively the 'champions' of healing and cell repair. When these are reintroduced into your skin, they amplify the body's natural rejuvenation processes.

Step 3: Microneedling

Here's where the 'vampire' part comes into play. Microneedling involves using short, fine needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. The needles only go skin-deep and feel more like a light prickle than anything else, making it a pretty comfortable, quick, yet effective procedure.

Microneedling stimulates the skin to produce more collagen and elastin while facilitating the penetration of PRP into the skin for a more intense healing effect. The aim here is to develop a softer texture, brighter tone, and give an overall youthful glow to your skin.

In the world of non-surgical procedures, microneedling with PRP therapy outpaces the standard dermal fillers, not only because of its natural, cell-promoting elements but also its long-lasting effects extending 1 to 2 years. Now, which of you wouldn't want to sustain that youthful glow for as long as possible?

Advancements in dermatology have brought forth an unlikely star player – the Vampire Facial, also scientifically known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Despite its terrifying nickname, the Vampire Facial has proven to be a non-scary, non-surgical procedure that offers numerous skin and facial improvements. It's the natural answer for those seeking a more youthful glow without invasive surgery or synthetic-based fillers.

Skin Rejuvenation

Who doesn't want smoother, firmer, and healthier-looking skin? With the Vampire Facial, these are not mere wishes but attainable goals. The facial treatment uses your body’s own regenerative abilities to spur skin recovery and rejuvenation. Specifically, Platelet-Rich Plasma, derived from your own blood, is infused into the skin via microneedling treatment or cosmetic injections. The effects are remarkable - stem cells and growth-rich platelets in the plasma stimulate natural collagen production, resulting in a more radiant complexion.

By harnessing your body's own healing powers, it's no wonder that the Vampire Facial is fast becoming a popular skin treatment at Skin Reform's Laser & Aesthetic Clinic. The therapy is not only capable of improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but it's also been found to be potent against several skin concerns such as acne, acne scarring, and rosacea.

Collagen Production

Let's delve deeper into the world of collagen – your skin's best friend but often an overlooked component in skin care regimes. Collagen is like a scaffolding to your skin, providing structure and resilience. However, as we age, our body's collagen production rate decreases, with the most significant downturn occurring around the age of 25.

The good news is that the Vampire Facial is here to the rescue. It stimulates collagen production, creating a latticework in your skin's different layers – enhancing skin texture, tightening sagging areas, and even plumping out your lips or cheeks. Rest assured that at Skin Reform, we meticulously execute this process using a combination of microneedling and the infusion of Platelet-Rich Plasma to effectively boost collagen levels.

Anticipate visibly healthier and more youthful skin following your Vampire Facial. So, are you ready to face the new standard for non-surgical procedures at Skin Reform? Trust us, it's more beauty than beast.

Let us demystify the process of this intriguing skincare treatment, the vampire facial, also known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Unlike what its name might suggest, it's not nearly as scary as a visit from Count Dracula.

Before we dive into the procedure, it's crucial to understand the star of the treatment - PRP. When drawn blood undergoes centrifugation, it separates into three distinct layers: plasma, platelets + white blood cells, and red blood cells. PRP comes from the middle layer, packed with platelets and other growth factors that stimulate cell repair and collagen production; the key ingredients for firm, smooth skin.

Onto the non-surgical facial itself. We start by drawing a small sample of blood from the client, just like during a typical health check-up. This blood is then spun in a centrifuge, not once but twice, to get the most potent PRP. This extra step amplifies the rejuvenating powers of the PRP, a speciality of Skin Reform's protocol.

While the centrifuge works its magic, the next step is microneedling. Small, fine needles make micro-wounds on the skin. Fear not - it's less painful than it sounds, and it's a crucial part of the process. These minute injuries trigger the skin's natural repair process, supercharging its healing ability - and that's where our star PRP enters the scene.

The PRP, now separate and ready, is liberally applied to the skin, allowing those beneficial platelets and growth factors to seep deep into the dermis. The micro-wounds created by microneedling serve as portals, enabling the PRP to get right where it's most beneficial.

This isn't just another beauty trend dropped by the Kardashians. This treatment has real science behind it, harnessing our skin's innate power to heal itself, with a boost from PRP therapy. With skin improvements like increased collagen production, the vampire facial is a real game-changer in the skincare world.

We've journeyed through the fascinating world of Vampire Facials, unravelling the science behind this innovative skincare treatment. It's clear that this method, which uses our own Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a game-changer in skin rejuvenation. By stimulating collagen production naturally, it's a powerful tool for transformative skincare results. The process may sound complex, but it's grounded in our body's own healing abilities. So, if you're seeking an effective, scientifically backed skincare solution, a Vampire Facial could be just what you need. It's more than a trend; it's a revolution in the skincare industry, promising real, tangible improvements.
