The Vampire facial, also known as the platelet plasma facial, includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets, and then injecting them into your skin via microneedling. The doctor runs the microneedling pen over your face while applying the platelets into the mini injection holes.
What is a Vampire Facial?
There has been the deployment of many systems for platelet preparation and its use for aesthetic purposes that helps in taking advantage of Plasma. One such deployment is Plasma facial. Another common term for Plasma facial is “Vampire Facial” as well. It is a method of skin care treatment in which the natural power of the body is used to heal itself. Why is this treatment called a vampire facial? Because the treatment involves the use of one’s blood. Blood is composed of four main components; red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), platelets, and plasma.
How does Vampire Facial work?
Magic happens when there is a high concentration of platelets in plasma. The blood is separated into four components by a centrifuge machine that helps in achieving a high concentration of platelet in plasma. The separated platelets are again introduced into a reduced volume of the plasma, recovered from the same blood. This results in an enhanced concentration of the platelets that is 6-7 times more concentration in this ultrafiltrate, as compared to concentration in blood.
