PRP Facial in Camberley

Even if, like most of us, you shudder at the sight of blood and can’t stand needles, you shouldn’t dismiss Vampire Facials. Also known as PRP Therapy or Blood Facials, the treatment’s skin plumping and rejuvenating results have seen it rise to the mainstream.

And contrary to the sensationalist images you may have seen on social media Kim Kardashian may have controversially made this famous), the treatment DOES NOT involve smearing blood all over your face! It is the yellowish PRP which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma) that is micro-needled into your skin.

It is a lot less unpleasant than you may think.
And a skilled and experienced therapist can minimise your discomfort associated with needles.

TLDR

A Vampire Facial is a high-tech skin rejuvenating treatment that’s said to plump up your complexion, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and accelerate collagen production.

What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma is a rejuvenating part of our blood, and when it reaches a wounded area of the skin it helps it to clot, which in turn regenerates new skin and heals the trauma.

PRP Therapy has actually been used in a medical setting for the past 30 years, helping to treat a multitude of skin traumas – from burn victims to acne scarring. It’s only in the last decade that PRP has started to make waves as a cosmetic treatment due to its host of anti-ageing benefits.

i-PRF - The Next Generation PRP

At House of Beauty, we are among the few salons that utilise Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin (i-PRF) which is the next generation of PRP.

i-PRF offers an innovative concept to overcome previous limitations within regenerative medicine. i-PRF offers excellent cell viability and bio compatibility with superior tissue regeneration. This advanced form of Platelet Rich Plasma does not use anticoagulants or other chemical based additives, therefore offers a completely natural treatment to improve volume loss, photo damage, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, poor texture and hair loss.

The low speed centrifugation concept of i-PRF vs PRP guarantees a higher concentration of platelets, growth factors and leukocytes which become trapped within the fibrinogen mesh resulting in a cell rich network. These essential cells are then released slowly to lead to a natural regeneration process.

​Studies prove the i-PRF System offers a significantly higher concentration of platelets when compared to PRP following centrifugation, which highlights the superiority of Injectable Platelet Rich Fibrin and why this system is a true game changer.

What is involved in a Vampire Facial?

STEP 1: NUMBING CREAM
For the first step of a Vampire Facial, your therapist will cleanse the skin and remove makeup, and then apply a numbing cream to the entire face. This is left on to absorb for roughly 15 minutes while they prepare for the blood extraction.

STEP 2: BLOOD EXTRACTION
The second step of the process is the all important blood extraction. It only takes a matter of seconds though and other than a slight pin prick it’s pain free and very straightforward.

STEP 3: CENTRIFUGE
Once a small vial of blood has been taken from your arm, the next stage is to centrifuge it. This important part of the treatment is what separates the platelet rich plasma (the key ingredient of the facial) with the red and white blood cells.

STEP 4: PRP EXTRACTION
Once the blood has been left to spin (at 300 RPM no less) your therapist will be ready to begin. They’ll start by carefully removing the plasma from the vial and transferring it into the injection needles.

STEP 5: INJECTION TIME
The injections begin! The injections are superficial and only penetrate the top layers of your skin – plus the numbing cream keeps pain levels at a minimum. There are various injection methods – by syringe, a mesogun, microneedling pen, dermaroller or nanosoft microneedlings. A slight stinging sensation is all you should feel, but hey – no pain no gain!

STEP 6: REPEAT
This process is then repeated over the entire face, focusing on areas of concern. The act of injecting plasma back into your skin creates small controlled traumas, allowing it to absorb more deeply. When it reaches a wounded area, the plasma helps it to clot, which in turn regenerates new skin, encouraging accelerated elastin and collagen production.

STEP 7: HYALURONIC ACID
Once the injections are complete, your therapist will often apply a vitamin-rich hyaluronic acid to help soothe your skin after the treatment. Ice can also be applied.

What is the Downtime?

Downtime is minimal though, and apart from a small amount of bruising which can occur, your skin should be back to normal within a day or two.

What results should I expect?

Well you won’t start seeing visible results until a few weeks in when the PRF starts to settle, so don’t expect to roll out of bed the next morning with perfect skin. But one month in and you’ll definitely start to see a difference. Skin is visibly plumper, fine lines and dark circles have decreased, and overall you’ll have a brighter, more youthful glow. 

How many sessions are required?

You will see results a few weeks after your first session however a course of at least 3 seassions are recommended to maximise results.
