We can all get a little bit skittish at the very mention of blood. But the truth is that your blood is your body’s best friend, carrying oxygen and nutrients all round your body to the places where they’re needed most. But did you know that a compound within your blood could hold the key to younger looking skin?
Let’s be honest – it’s never pleasant when the face we see in our reflection starts to change, moving further from the healthy and youthful version of ourselves that we expect to see when we look in the mirror. We’re all a little sensitive about the aging process. It’s the reason why so many of us spend a small fortune on cosmetics that make bold claims to which they rarely live up. It’s why so many of us elect to undergo risky and uncomfortable surgical procedures.
But what if there were a way to get your youthful complexion back using one of your body’s most valuable resources? Treatments like the Vampire Facial may make it possible! Learn more during a consultation with us at RefineU MedSpa in Oklahoma City, OK!
What Is a Vampire Facial?
Don’t be alarmed by the scary name. A Vampire Facial® is simply an affectionate nickname for a completely safe and non-invasive procedure that can help the skin of your face to look and feel younger. Unlike other treatments, it does not use substances foreign to your body. It just utilizes the restorative and rejuvenating compounds within your own blood.
A Vampire Facial uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate your skin, facilitating better flow of blood to your skin so that it can overcome barriers to getting vital oxygen and nutrients it needs.
A Vampire Facial can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while giving your skin a healthy, youthful glow.
How Does It Work?
A small sample of your blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge for a few minutes. This encourages the plasma to bond with other restorative compounds in the blood and create the PRP formula. This formula is applied to facial tissues, and the stem cells contained within help to create healthier new skin cells that are more vibrant and youthful in appearance.
A Vampire Facial also stimulates your skin’s production of collagen. This is the structural protein which gives skin its firmness and elasticity. Collagen cannot be absorbed into the skin. It needs to be encouraged to produce its own.
What Can You Expect from a Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial brings a range of natural benefits, and, because it uses substances from your own body, most individuals may be able to benefit. Potential benefits include:
- Improved skin health
- Even skin tone
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- More youthful looking skin
Unlike surgical procedures, there is a minimum of downtime, and you should be able to return to your usual schedule in a matter of days.
