The Vampire Facial (also known as a blood facial or PRGF facial) is a revolutionary procedure which was developed for people wanting healthy, smooth and rejuvenated skin quickly and without surgery.
The procedure works by harnessing ones own body’s healing and regenerative capabilities and thus it is completely safe. This technology is based on regenerative medicine and the video describes technology known as Endoret® (prgf – protein rich growth factor) Technology which is used by us at Shields to achieve great results.
The concept behind vampire facials is that plasma contains human growth factors. These growth factors are known to aid in the healing of wounds and to help promote new collagen growth in facial skin. In addition, collagen is the skin protein which helps to keep skin taut and firm.
A Vampire Facial involves taking blood from the patient’s arm and using a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells.
From there, Dermapen microneedling infuses the skin with the platelet-rich plasma (PRGF) and this helps to promote cell turnover in the skin.
This happens through the stimulation of collagen and elastin fibres to give a brilliant complexion to the skin.
The platelets and growth factors taken from your blood and micro-injected in your skin, initiate a healing response which, over time, rejuvenates the skin. In addition, the skin is re-plumped and rejuvenated. Fine lines and wrinkles are also reduced to create a youthful, radiant glow. The result is smoother, younger looking skin!
