What is a Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial is essentially a filler to improve facial contours and volume. It is a platelet-rich fibrin matrix – translated that means that the platelets from your own blood are removed along with the clear, liquidy part of the blood called serum. This serum with the platelets in it is mixed with calcium chloride and then injected into your skin.Remember platelets are the tiny cells in blood that mainly help blood to clot. Sometimes this is also referred to as PRP – platelet rich plasma. PRP has been used in the orthopedic world – especially for injections into tendons – for several years.
