Vampire Facial with PRP in Vancouver
The all-natural anti-aging facial that has been made famous by Kim Kardashian!
Are you seeking a way to rejuvenate your skin only using natural products? Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, often referred to as a Vampire Facial, is a treatment designed to improve the quality and texture of your complexion using products derived purely from your own body! This technique uses your own platelets (found within blood plasma) which are extracted and used to smooth away wrinkles and lines, soften stretchmarks and scars, and restore elasticity and tone.
PRP stimulates a controlled inflammatory response which then produces new collagen and elastin, and tightens the skin.
At Pacific Plastic Surgery we combine Microneedling with PRP. Microneedling allows us to introduce the PRP directly into the dermis of the skin via 100 small channels created by the microneedles. The microneedling creates a “controlled damage” to the skin, and the PRP helps stimulate the inflammatory, healing and regeneration process which then produces new collagen and elastin. This results in smoother, plumper and tighter skin, as well as improved quality and texture of the skin.
Best results can be seen with 3 treatments, spaced 1-2 months apart.

What can you expect from your treatment?
PRP vampire facials start by taking a small amount of blood from your arm, performed either by one of our trained and experienced nurses or physicians. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge which spins the blood very fast for 5 minutes, which separates the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma.
The syringe with PRP is then connected to the V2 Beauty Booster micro-needling device. You can read more about micro-needling here.
You can expect to see your skin visibly lighter and brighter, pore size minimized, texture improved, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, plumping of the skin. Typically results will be seen 7-10 days after your treatment, but best results are noticed 1 month after your third treatment.
You can expect to be here for 45-75 minutes, but the micro-needling and PRP application is only about 20-25 minutes.
We use topical numbing cream applied to your face before your treatment. You may feel some pressure from the tip of the device, but it shouldn’t be painful.
The great news is the downtime is very minimal. Most people return to their normal activity immediately. Some people do experience some redness lasting for a few hours and up to 1 day, but this is rare. In addition, there is a risk of some bruising, but this is very low risk and the bruising only occurs in small areas.
