Why might you need to do the Venus Vampire Facial?

Since Kim Kardashian had the Vampire Facial done on national television, there has been a lot of hype regarding the facial that is done for celebrities.

 

What is the Venus Vampire Facial?

Venus Viva with its NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and SmartScan™ technology, the patented tip with 700 pulses and penetration of up to 500 microns providing energy density enabling both ablation of the epidermis and coagulation of the dermis area which may result in skin resurfacing with minimal discomfort.

PRP is a substance derived from drawing patient’s own blood and processing it to generate Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells, and many growth factors are present in PRP. The PRP  helps to promote your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and activates the stem cells present in the skin to naturally smooth and tighten. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creates smoother skin texture and tone.

The procedure is done by combining both Venus Viva and PRP in the same treatment, to improve:

  • Ageing skin
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Post acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Dull skin1
  • Uneven texture
  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores

 

How does it work?

Combining  NanoFractional Radio Frequency™ (RF) and SmartScan™ technology; Venus Viva™ uses microtips to deliver collagen-stimulating RF waves into the dermis, to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. The device allows for the clinician to choose how much ablation (removal of tissue through vaporization) and coagulation (destroying damaged protein with heat in favor of new collagen synthesis) is produced, to target a variety of skin problems.

 

What is the down time on the procedure?

The skin will be slightly red straight after the procedure and sensitive to touch, sensitivity will be experienced on the day and next day. You can continue with daily activities.

Results on any treatment may vary per individual as everybody is different and may respond differently to treatments mentioned.
