Is Vampire the New Black? What to Know About PRP
- Posted on: Aug 15 2018
Trends go up and down, and can be a full-time job to keep up with. One trend that Dr. Barry Goldman has seen increase recently is platelet-rich plasma, and it looks like it’s definitely here to stay. Platelet-rich plasma or vampire facelifts are used to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns including a loss of collagen, fine lines and wrinkles, and just overall skin rejuvenation. And as a treatment that celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian swear by, why is PRP so popular?
It’s All Natural
If there’s anything more natural then using your own plasma to help alleviate skincare concerns, then let us know. PRP facials or vampire facials, work by extracting blood from your body, spinning it to remove the plasma, and then applying it to your skin. Sometimes, we may even perform microneedling beforehand. Why microneedling? Microneedling not only stimulates collagen production on its own but it also helps your skin absorb products and, you guessed it, PRP better.
It Actually Works
Believe it or not, PRP actually works; it is not a hoax. Platelet-rich plasma is so beneficial that it is used to treat medical conditions as well. Because your plasma contains so many proteins, it helps to stimulate healing in your body which gives you a more youthful complexion in the process. Depending on what kinds of results you want, Dr. Barry Goldman may recommend reasonably regular vampire facials.
Why Are They Called Vampire Facials?
Vampires love blood, and we do too or at least when it comes to PRP and vampire facials. As previously mentioned, the process of a vampire facial (and how it gets its name) involves applying your own platelet rich plasma across your face which makes you look like you just had a run-in with a vampire.
