The Vampire Facial - What Is It?
You must’ve heard the term Vampire facial or vampire face lift a lot and must be curious to know what exactly it is. No, it’s not a facial that will make you look like Edward Cullen, promise!
From Beverly hills to Bombay, this beauty trend has come a long way and is all the rage in the beauty world. In this video, Dr. Harshana Bijlani breaks down the process and the effects of this beauty trend.
So what’s a vampire facial? It gets it name from the very fact that “blood” is used to do this facial. Your own blood has healing properties and something as basic as that can instantly give you a fresher, lifted, clear and a glowy look. To put it in a simpler way, The vampire facial, or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), involves extracting of a patient's blood from their arm and separating the plasma - the fluid part - from the red and white blood cells. It’s a treatment facial which basically combines the usual clean up (whitehead-blackhead removal) with the latest technology to create something remarkable.
These concentrated platelets or plasma is then injected into the face. These platelets will act as the healing elements that your problem areas need. It can also be combined with a few dermal fillers to further fill the problem areas, if the client wishes to do so.
Open pores, wrinkles, scars etc can be healed using this facial. If you have a function or a wedding or anything big planned, this is an ideal treatment to get done as it’ll make your face a clearer, fresher canvas for the makeup that you’re going to put. It’s completely natural however we advice you to get a full consultation before you get it done!
