Are PRP Beauty Treatments the Secret to Youthful Skin?

Are PRP Beauty Treatments the Secret to Youthful Skin?

In an industry where beauty is everything, celebrities go to extreme measures to hold onto their appearance, investing millions of dollars towards vanity. From Victoria Beckham's bird poo facials to Cindy Crawford's milk spray, celebrities seem desperate to drink from the fountain of youth.

Recently, reality star Kim Kardashian popularized a bloody beauty treatment called the "Vampire Facial" on her hit TV show Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. It's a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment which involves drawing a patient's own blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma, then injecting it back into the face using microneedles.

The procedure may sound gruesome, but the age-defying results are quickly making it a must-try facial trend for celebrities.

How Do PRP Injections Work?

The origins of PRP injections in the mainstream has been seen with high-performance athletes such as Tiger Woods, Alex Rodriguez, and Steph Curry. The injections have expedited their recovery from their sports-related injuries.

PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors found in the patient's blood plasma. These growth factors accelerate the body's natural healing process by stimulating cell growth, and repairing damaged cells within the injured area.

The regenerative benefits of PRP injections are now breaching beyond the world of sports. Recently, cosmologists have been using PRP injections as a facial treatment to help combat the signs of aging.

Benefits of the Vampire Facial

Vampire facials are a natural alternative to chemical injections like Botox or facial fillers, and naturally mimic the results of a facelift in only 45 minutes. They also offer zero downtime for recovery, and unlike cosmetic surgeries, don't make it obvious that you've had "work" done.

The growth factors found in PRP repair damaged skin cells, while stimulating the skin's natural production of collagen and elastin fibers, helping reduce lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The healing proteins in vampire facials act as a skin fertilizer that rejuvenates the look and feel of your skin.

Your skin will feel softer and look younger for months following the procedure. The best part about vampire facials is that the results can last up to two years!

Who are Vampire Facials Best For?

Vampire facials aren't just for celebrities like Kim Kardashian or supermodels like Bar Rafaeli - they're for everyone.

Whether you're a young person trying to prevent the aging process, have bad acne scars, or avoid synthetic beauty treatments, vampire facials are the best way to heal and rejuvenate your skin using your own body.
