A small amount of blood taken into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood sample. The tube containing the blood is deactivated, placed into a specialist centrifuge and spun under special conditions to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.
After a few minutes the plasma and concentrated platelets are removed from the same tube activated, they are reintroduced into the patient are the site of injury, scars, skin, obvious lines or wrinkles. Using a small sterile needle the plasma is injected into the treatment area. Multiple areas can be treated.
The specific deactivation and reactivation of the blood sample differentiates the treatment from a normal procedure to the more effective Dracula Therapy™ treatment.
After receiving a PRP Vampire Facial we advise you to follow these steps:

PRP Vampire Facial
In the Dracula Therapy the face, décolletage and back of hands can be treated (depending on the volume of rich proteins your blood sample provides and the needs of your skin for rejuvenation).

Your comfort levels and expectations are important factors which are considered in your consultation.
