The Plasma Facial, which you may hear referred to as the “Vampire Facelift,” may be the secret to turning back the clock on your skin.
If you are bothered by fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, sun damage and other common skincare concerns, then contact Seduction Med Spa today. We can evaluate how beneficial a Plasma Facial might be for your skin.
What Is A Plasma Facial?
In addition to being called a Vampire Facelift, this treatment may be referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, Therapy. This in-office, non-surgical treatment takes only about an hour to perform, yet it produces amazing results.
A Plasma Facial might be the remedy you are seeking if your want to correct conditions such as:
- Acne scarring
- Oversized pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone
- Lax or crepey skin
- Sun-damaged skin
- Skin texture that is dull or rough
The Plasma Facial frequently is performed as two rejuvenating treatments. The first is a Platelet Rich Plasma facial, and the second is a Skin Pen Microneedling procedure. Accordingly, patients get the amazing effects of both treatments in one session.
Why Get a Plasma Facial?
As people grow older, collagen production significantly slows down. This loss of collagen causes wrinkles, thinner skin and sagging skin. However, PRP is packed with critical growth factors. These substances occur naturally in the body and are responsible for stimulating the production of new cells and collagen. This protein is what makes your skin look plump, smooth and youthful.
Following this PRP facial with Skin Pen Microneedling also helps to boost collagen production while also helping to bring more elastin into your skin. Elastin is the substance that gives young skin its elasticity, but like collagen, the amount of elastin in your skin naturally diminishes as you age.
The Skin Pen treatment involves the use of a microneedling device that glides across the surface of your skin and creates hundreds of tiny vertical channels. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then flowed through these channels to reach beneath the surface of the skin. Thanks to the protein and healing properties in the plasma, your skin heals quickly and begins producing more collagen and elastin.
The results are amazing. Your skin will look younger and more vibrant than it has in years.
What Is PRP?
PRP has been used for years to treat athletes who have injuries, but doctors have discovered recently that adapting this therapy to aesthetic purposes has incredible results.
A sample of the patient’s blood is drawn and then processed in an FDA-approved centrifuge to separate out a layer of platelet rich plasma. This plasma is then applied to the patient’s skin after microneedling to ensure that it reaches well below the skin’s surface. The result is that the patient’s natural healing processes are stimulated, making their skin look younger and more radiant than it has in years.
When Will I See Results from a Plasma Facial?
Some patients notice an improvement in the appearance of their skin virtually immediately after the Plasma Facial is performed. However, that healthy glow is likely to improve over the course of several weeks. This is because the production of collagen and elastin requires time. It is not unusual for patients to continue to notice an improvement in their skin’s appearance for up to six months after the procedure.
Is Any Downtime Required with a Plasma Facial?
When the procedure is complete, the vast majority of patients exhibit a pink, healthy glow. This pinkness may subside after 24 hours. However, it is possible that it may last for up to 96 hours. Rather than being a cause for concern, this actually is an indication that important healing is taking place. Most patients who undergo a plasma facial are able to return to their ordinary activities immediately after the treatment, but you may want to schedule a little time to pamper yourself.
Are Plasma Facials Painful?
Most clients report that this is a pain-free treatment. Your provider will carefully cleanse your skin before beginning to ensure that no impurities can interfere with procedure and cause irritation. A local anesthetic is applied to guarantee your comfort throughout the process. The skin on your face is quite sensitive, so you will feel the treatment being applied. However, there generally is no pain associated with the procedure. If you like, you may take aspirin before and after the treatment if you are concerned about discomfort. Some patients also choose to apply cold compresses to the treatment sites to speed up the rejuvenation of their skin.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Most patients are so pleased with the results that are achieved with a Plasma Facial that they are ready to have the procedure performed within one to two years after the initial treatment to maintain their healthy glow. Of course, the better your daily skincare routine is and the more dedicated you are about follow-up appointments to care for your skin, the longer the results of the Plasma Facial are likely to last.
