PRP Facials in West Bloomfield
Natural solutions for your aesthetic goals.
This medical, non-surgical facial has the power to restore your complexion!
Cratus Medical Vitality Institute in West Bloomfield stays on top of all the latest and most trusted techniques for skin rejuvenation. One of the more popular treatments over the last few years has been our PRP Facial. Also called the “vampire facial,” PRP facials combine the restorative power of two treatment approaches – microdermabrasion and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) – to reveal luminous skin. PRP is created from the serum portion of your blood – where platelets containing a high level of growth factors are found. Your results: brighter, clearer skin that gets better with time.
What it Treats
- Improve the appearance of premature lines and wrinkles
- Restore an even skin tone
- Freshen dull & damaged skin
- Reveal a fresh & luminous complexion
- Stimulate cell turnover
- Help your skin function optimally
- Increase collagen
- Boost elastin production
- Promote antioxidant and hydrating properties
How it Works
The procedure will involve performing microneedling to create hundreds of tiny, invisible wounds in the treatment area.
In addition to promoting collagen production, this process allows the PRP to deeply penetrate your skin.
The results of your vampire facial will emerge gradually as your body responds to the plasma by growing fresh collagen. Over time, visibly clearer, brighter and more youthful skin will appear. Many of our clients notice impressive results after just one session, though we recommend three treatments for an optimal transformation.
What to Expect
A PRP facial is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment experience.
As such, there is no recovery period necessary and you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine right away. To protect your skin after your PRP facial, you should wear sunscreen and avoid makeup for the first few days.
- Why is the treatment called a “Vampire Facial"?
Vampire’s are kind of a scary visual, so we understand why someone would have this question. However, this treatment got its nickname because it uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which involves using a patient’s own blood to stimulate collagen (after it’s drawn from your body and spun through a centrifuge). The name may sound intimidating, but the results are exceptional!
- Is there a difference between a Vampire Facial and microneedling?
Both treatments are highly effective when it comes to improving texture and reducing the signs of aging. The main difference between the two, however, is that a Vampire Facial in West Bloomfield uses PRP. While this means that a Vampire Facial may take slightly longer, the recovery time is actually reduced since a PRP treatment uses your own body’s natural healing properties and growth factors.
- Is this treatment safe for everyone?
A Vampire facial is safe for all skin types! The procedure works for anyone looking to rejuvenate their facial appearance and stimulate deeper collagen production beneath the surface of the skin. However, if you have difficulties when it comes to drawing blood, seeing blood, or with needles, you may need to consider this treatment more carefully. Our providers can help you determine the right treatment for your specific needs during your initial consultation.
- Are Vampire Facial results permanent?
The results of a vampire facial are long-lasting, but they aren’t permanent. Most patients can expect to see noticeable benefits right away, with full results coming after a series of three treatments. However, the results will last about one year, after which we recommend additional treatments to maintain your results.
- Can you use PRP in other parts of the body?
Yes you can! We use PRP treatments in numerous different areas throughout the body at Cratus Medical Vitality Institute. Although no two treatments are exactly the same, PRP can provide lasting benefits for treatments such as hair restoration, joint pain reduction, male and female sexual enhancement, and more.
- What’s the difference between a Vampire Facial and a Vampire Facelift?
While both a Vampire Facial and a Vampire Facelift utilize PRP to get beautiful results, the difference is in their approach. A Vampire Facial uses microneedling to work deeper in the skin to fight the signs of aging, while a Vampire Facelift plumps and smooths the skin with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to plump and smooth the skin
