Vampire Facial Gives Skin New Life

Clients who want to scare away the signs of aging are flocking to the Vampire Facial. Tom O’Brien, CEO of Eclipse Aesthetics LLC, the company that distributes the technology to perform the Vampire Facial, says the procedure uses the body’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to promote beautiful skin. The PRP possesses increased concentrations of one’s own growth factors, and these self-derived growth factors are powerful elements that aid in a more youthful appearance. “The new trend is to improve oneself with natural approaches and avoid those processes which are synthetic and potentially harmful,” he says.  “PRP is applied topically to the skin following a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes. The growth factors in the PRP re-energize cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.”
