Also known as a PRP (platelet rich plasma), the Vampire Facial involves taking blood from the patient's arm and then separating the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma is then infused into the skin with a multitude of tiny pin pricks. This stimulates collagen and elastin fibres to promote cell turnover to rejuvenate the skin. The recovery time is usually 24hrs. Patients can expect red and possibly inflamed skin following this procedure. Patients will notice a healthy glow to the skin after a few days, however, the full results of the treatment will be visible after about 2-4 weeks once a full collagen remodelling has taken place.
