What is a VAMPIRE FACIAL?
A Vampire Facial is actually a form of PRP that was developed to treat age-related skin issues, as well as hyperpigmentation and scarring. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and was first seen as a treatment for pain, arthritis and other injuries in the body. The procedure used platelets from the patient’s own blood and reinjected them into the concern area where there was damaged tissue.
A Vampire Facial begins with drawing a vial of your blood and then separating it in a centrifuge to yield the platelets. Following the blood draw, the Vampire Facial will begin. Before the procedure begins the practitioner will apply a face numbing cream to help aid in the discomfort – its not a painful procedure but the cream will address uneasiness. The skin experts at MEADOWS may combine PRP with face serums and Brightening agents to improve the session efficacy to work on pigmentation. It works beautifully by inducing inflammation, triggering collagen and other regenerative properties.
PRP injections work by supplying growth factors to reduce the pigmentation. And being an independent treatment with no downtime, it can be done in conjunction with conventional treatments for melasma to add and enhance the effects. PRP is primarily a healing vehicle. It needs to be injected into the membrane below the skin. Platelet-Rich Plasma has separate roles like increasing skin volume and adding new blood vessels to name a few. The way it works is by supplying the underlying skin membrane with collagen and tenascin stimulated by the transforming growth factors in PRP. These growth factors also promote formation of new blood vessels that in some cases results in disappearance of spider veins.

No matter what treatment you ultimately choose, it’s important to protect your skin from further sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Wearing sunscreen every day is a must. You should apply sunscreen every morning — even when it’s cloudy! — and reapply as needed throughout the day. Be sure to use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
