REVOLUTIONISING SKIN REJUVENATION
The original Vampire Facial refers to a treatment that incorporates the patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with Microneedling. Microneedling encourages skin resurfacing and cell turn-over, while the PRP stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The result is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, minimising the appearance of scaring, improving skin turgor and evening the overall tone and texture of the skin.
At NBSKIN, instead of using patient PRP, we use Da Vinci 10 Growth Factor – the most potent and purest form of growth factors on the market today. Even more powerful than PRP! Da Vinci 10 is a 100% natural and powerful bio-engineered topical epidermal growth factor formula which is introduced into the skin by Microneedling. Hence the name, The Non-Vampire, Vampire Facial as we do not use your own blood but a far better alternative that is made up of Bio-Engineered Topical Epidermal Growth factors.
By using Da Vinci 10, there are no risks of cross contamination, only beautiful glowing skin! Following the facial we offer a Da Vinci 10 home care product. This contains five growth factors with a concentration of 10,000 ng/ml (compared to a much lower concentration of 127 ng/ml of growth factor in PRP) and has a molecular size that can be absorbed by the skin at home to maintain and boost results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Microneedling with Growth Factors is an in-clinic cosmetic treatment that is able to help treat many different skin imperfections while rejuvenating your complexion. By combining microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy with growth factors, the benefits of each are significantly boosted to give you a refreshed and youthful appearance. The two methods of rejuvenation joined into one clinic session makes it a powerhouse skincare treatment.
The benefits of adding growth factors to microneedling is that it helps to boost the results of a traditional microneedling session. It increases the speed of your body’s healing process and the amount of collagen that is produced. Being able to enhance the results of microneedling without making the treatment more invasive is part of what makes this technique so innovative.
The Non-Vampire, Vampire Facial can be performed on the face, neck, and décolleté.
Microneedling with Growth factors is generally a quick treatment. The first step is the application of a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Once you are numbed the microneedling will begin. A small device with a lot of very small needles will go over your skin multiple times. This is the device that will create the small pinholes, or injuries. These tiny pinholes will allow the growth factor solution to absorb into your skin deeper.
Many patients begin to see results within the first few days after their initial treatment. Results will continue to become visible over the next six months as your body’s natural collagen production continues. Full results are usually seen at the six month mark.
Healthy individuals who are looking to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, hyper pigmentation, and other skin imperfections may be great candidates for the Non-Vampire, Vampire Facial.
