I am not saying I would ever try this, but Lord knows a woman might just do anything to get rid of a few wrinkles and acne scars here and there. #judgementfreezone.
As we get older most of us are looking for ways to cover up less and allow the true potential of our skin to shine through.
Kim Kardashian introduced the pop culture world to this Platelet rich plasma facial in a huge way when she took a selfie with her face looking bruised. Social media affectionately called her facial the vampire facial.
How it works
A specialist will draw blood from your arm and place the blood into a centrifuge that spins and separates the platelets. The platelets is where the magic happens because they contain ‘growth factors that rejuvenate the cells in our bodies.
The platelets are then injected into your problem areas and stems cells are activated along with the stimulation of collagen and elasticity.
This treatment can work for your scalp as well to stimulate growth, the specialist would inject the platelets into the scalp which is cringe worthy but works for hair growth.
The cost of the PRP facial is upwards of $1000 because you will probably have to do it more than once to get the remarkable effects.
If you can make the investment and you are serious about your facials then this is the way to go. However if you want sort of the same effect, minus the injections pulling and re injecting, you can try a derma roller.
The derma roller rejuvenates the skin but causing micro piercings to the skin, traumatizing it allowing it to renew itself naturally. Honestly this would probably be the first choice of most women before committing to the Vampire facial. (maybe)
