The famous Beverly Hills Vampire Facial® is now available in Colorado Springs. This procedure uses the amazing healing power of the patient’s own blood to restore a much more youthful appearance to the skin. Many Hollywood Stars have used this procedure to transform their skin, and Nurse Practitioner Jodi Killilea, after special training in Beverly Hills, California, is now offering the popular procedure right here in Colorado Springs.
What is a Vampire Facial®?
The Vampire Facial® is a procedure in which the patient’s own blood is drawn in the office and placed in a centrifuge for approximately 10 minutes. The spinning of the centrifuge separates the red blood cells from the potent, Platelet-rich Plasma. This Platelet-rich Plasma, sometimes called PRP, contains powerful growth factors which stimulate multi-potent stem cells and aggressively promote the growth of new tissue, collagen and elastin under the skin, as well as new skin cells on the surface of the skin. After numbing cream is applied so that the patient does not feel the procedure, the Platelet-rich Plasma is introduced just under the surface of the skin through a simple process called Microneedling, which naturally stimulates the regenerative process to begin.
The Vampire Facial® greatly improves the tone, texture, smoothness, and firmness of the skin. The procedure also decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stubborn acne and trauma scars, and gives the skin a much more youthful appearance in as little as one treatment. Patients will typically see an even greater improvement with multiple treatments, therefore two or three treatments are often recommended for certain skin conditions.
The treatment usually takes 1-2 hours in the office, and downtime is very minimal after the procedure. It is recommended that patients do not wash the skin or apply makeup for 24 hours after the procedure. Any redness or skin irritation is usually minimal at this point, typically resembles a mild sunburn, and is not usually noticeable under makeup after approximately 24 hours.
The Vampire Facial® is usually done on the face, but can also be performed on other areas of the body to get rid of unwanted scars or stretch marks, and can also be used on the scalp to stimulate new hair growth. Therefore, we offer non-surgical PRP Hair Restoration Procedures in our office as well.
