Why is the vampire facial so popular? And what is it?
“Beauty is pain” Many may agree with those words. The vampire facial, otherwise known as the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) has become the new buzz in the beauty community why? Well ever since Kim Kardashian underwent the procedure during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians the vampire facial gained a lot of prominence when it was featured on the show. It quickly became the new hot trend, celebrities soon started undergoing the procedure resulting in people and younger teens wanting this treatment as well. When the Doctor injects the platelets into the face, it tricks the body into believing that there has been an injury and hence, bringing growth factors to aid new collagen formation which helps clear the skin.
