Vampire Facial (PRP)
The vampire facial, also known as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that involves extracting a small amount of blood from the patient and separating the platelets from the red and white blood cells. The platelets are then re-injected into the patient’s skin using micro-needling or injections. The goal of this treatment is to stimulate collagen production and improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin. It is often used to treat acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
Vampire Facial (PRP) is suitable for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin, including those who want to:
-Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Description of Procedure
The first step in the procedure is to draw a small amount of the patient's blood. This is typically done through a vein in the arm. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the rest of the blood cells. The platelets are then injected back into the patient's skin using a fine needle.
The procedure is typically done in a doctor's office or a medical spa and takes about an hour to complete. The patient may feel a slight pinch or sting when the needle is inserted, but the procedure is generally not painful.
After the procedure, the patient may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. These side effects should resolve within a few days. The patient may also experience some mild peeling or flaking of the skin as the treated area heals.
The patient should avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen with a high SPF for at least one week after the procedure. They should also avoid using harsh skincare products or applying makeup to the treated area for at least 24 hours.
