The Vampire Facial Plus is an exciting new treatment to improve skin thickness, texture and luminosity, and was developed by clinic founder Dr Catherine Stone, a woman I have known and admired for many years now. She really is a star in the industry and someone whose opinion you can trust and respect when it comes to getting the best results from cosmedical skin treatments.
The Vampire Facial Plus is inspired by PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a treatment that renews and regenerates tissues using the power of your own platelets. The team experimented with PRP through the e-dermastamp (EDS) machine, which is the latest in dermal needling technology and involves micro needles creating tiny holes in the dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production, skin rejuvenation and repair. They found that the EDS machine consistently delivered the platelets directly into the layer of skin – the dermal-epidermal junction – where they’re most effective. The machine also had a reservoir allowing for infusion of a healing and hydrating solution containing HA (hyaluronan), a substance found naturally in our tissues that attracts water to provide hydration and plumpness to the skin. It has also been proven to improve cellular communication within tissues.
Dr Stone launched the innovative treatment before attending a conference in Venice attended by many of the top PRP doctors in the world – and was happy to see The Face Place was ahead of the latest research. “One of the keynote sessions was the launch of a new PRP ‘tube’ combining PRP with HA – the same sort of HA we had been trialling. The HA apparently provides a scaffold in which the platelets feel protected, so they produce more healing growth factors and last for longer than when administered with other products or by themselves. It felt good to have launched our new treatment and then have it confirmed at the conference as being ahead of the pack,” Catherine says.
The treatment uses your body’s own platelets and natural healing systems, so there is no chance of reaction and downtime is minimal. Yet, the results are serious and include reduced pore size, bouncier skin and an improvement of the fine crepey skin around the eyes. The improvement is gradual and results are cumulative, so, while people have seen great results with just one treatment, Dr Stone recommends a course of 3-4 treatments over a 4-6 month period, suggesting a top up with a single treatment once or twice a year.
Clients who have trialled the new treatment report rave reviews from their friends about the quality of their skin, which became softer, thicker, tighter and more luminous, with fewer fine lines.
