Vampire Facial Procedure:
Your doctor will draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge machine that separates PRPs (platelet rich plasma). These PRPs contain growth factors and when applied as a serum to your face, help promote cell turnover in your skin. This means old cells are replaced by new ones at a faster rate. It promotes collagen generation which makes your skin plump and youthful.
Incase you are afraid of drawing blood, there are other options such as a serum which can be used instead.
