What’s the fuss about Vampire Facial?

Have you ever wondered what is all the fuss about when it comes to Platelet Rich Plasma ( or more commonly known as PRP or the vampire facial) ?

Truth is –  This treatment isn’t just a trend, this regenerative medicine comes with real joint, skin and hair care benefits.

A PRP facial, is an advanced skincare treatment method that harnesses your body’s own natural power to heal itself via platelets. In simple words, platelets are a type of blood cell that makes your blood clot. They also play a role in healing.

When the platelets in the plasma are concentrated, magic happens. 


PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production which thickens and tightens thinning skin. Thus it helps to smoothen fine lines and improve skin texture and elasticity.  


Delicate areas like under eye area are where signs of aging is usually more noticable first. However due it’s finer and thinner texture it can be tricky for lasers to reach. PRP comes in handy as it helps to improve skin thickness and slow down aging over these fragile delicate areas.


Using your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products, it’s an ideal procedure for anyone who feels worried about injecting foreign substances into their body.


There’s little to no recovery time associated with the PRP treatment. You may experience some redness in your face it usually subsides in a few hours to 24 hours and it affect you from going about your daily life.


Since PRP uses your own plasma, you do not have to worry about any allergic reactions or any side effects from foreign material.

Once platelets are in the area that’s being treated, they break down and release growth factors, which are compounds that help cells repair and renew. This is thought to trigger your body’s healing process.

You can’t get PRP injections if you have:

  • Abnormal platelet function or a low platelet count
  • An active infection
  • Cancer
  • Are undergoing anticoagulation therapy
