Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy is a completely natural method for skin rejuvenation and repair based on using your own plasma to inject into the treatment areas to cause your skin to regenerate and to reverse the signs of aging like pigmentation, wrinkles, loose skin, and also scaring.
This procedure has been talked about much in the media and has frequently been referred to as the “Vampire Face Lift.”
The Kim Kardashian facial includes the use of Platelet Rich Plasma which is taken from the patient’s own blood. The platelets further stimulate collagen and elastin growth, so it’s essentially a “turbo charged” treatment. It’s especially good for clients whose collagen has been weakened by age or the environment.”
Use Your Blood to Rejuvenate Your Face . . .
The procedure involves drawing your blood and spinning out the golden plasma. Then using Micro- Needling (a tool with small needles that are injected into the skin) that help to reduce pore size, even out your complexion, and push your own plasma deep into the layers of your skin helping you look more youthful and glowing.
It is based on harnessing the natural healing power of your own blood’s plasma – hence the “Vampire Lift.” The platelets in our blood contain many “growth factors” that promote the healing of damaged skin, including healing of aged skin. Following the injection, the platelets release these proteins (growth factors), which in turn trigger surrounding cells to proliferate and to repair damaged skin. As a result the skin volume increases and the skin becomes firmer, radiant and rejuvenated.
What are the benefits of PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy can be used on:
the face, especially around the eyes, mouth, jowls and nose,the back of your hands, scars, including surgical and acne scars, the neck, stretch marks, for hair growth in baldness (men and women).

- Rejuvenates the skin using your own plasma
- You have to have your blood drawn

During the treatment at Bella Aesthetica MedSpa, the practitioner will take a small amount of your blood. The blood will then be processed and filtered to isolate your plasma that contains the platelets. The Platelet-Rich-Plasma will then be injected into the treatment areas where the platelets will release their growth factors. These stimulate the cells around the injection site plumping them up, stimulating collagen production, and causing them to increase in volume.
The Vampire Facial® offers an innovative combination that’s become a sensation world-wide. Here’s how it’s done.
3 Steps of the Vampire Facial® Treatment
I. Isolating the magic from your blood
First, the practitioner isolates growth factors (Platelet Rich Plasma) from the patient’s blood. The practitioner draws your blood from your arm (like getting a blood test.) Then, using a centrifuge, the practitioner isolates platelets from your blood (platelet-rich plasma or PRP) — all within approximately 10 minutes in the office.

The practitioner uses a micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures –both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin and creating stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face.
III. Coating and soaking your face with Blood Derived Growth Factors
The practitioner paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation. The growth factors activate multipotent stem cells already in the skin (tricking them into “thinking” there’s been an injury and new younger tissue should be generated).
The multipotent stem cells then develop into new collagen, new blood vessels, and new fatty tissue trying to “repair” the skin that was never injured. The skin tightens, and glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result.
The result… younger looking skin!
The effects of the procedure improve for 2 to 3 months and can last for 1 to 2 years!
It will take a couple of weeks for the results of the PRP treatment to show. However, with a series of 2 to 3 top-up treatments, the results of PRP therapy can last 1 to 2 years. There is no recovery time and no side- effects.
You can resume your normal activities immediately. Occasionally some minor bruising and redness in the injected areas may appear. In your initial consultation, our doctor will discuss with you the indications and your suitability for this treatment.
The Vampire Facial® Therapy is not for everyone. You may want to consider laser therapy, Botox® or Dermal Fillers.
