Unfortunately, as we age our skin starts to droop, fine lines and wrinkles become more and more visible. Then we generally move from one wonder cream to the next until we’re finally disillusioned by the results and the high prices, and we start to look at botox and dermal fillers. But is there something in-between? The good news is, yes!
We asked industry expert, Dr. Cara Ting, from Hair Skin Science to tell us more ‘Made famous by Kim Kardashian the Vampire Facial is a process of PRP’. Dr. Cara explains “Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an extract from your own blood, and it is injected into the skin. It contains growth factors that increase cellular activity and enhance collagen production, to treat “crepey skin’.”. A popular treatment for a skin texture that appears wrinkly and papery due to ageing. Whereas fillers focus on plumping up the hollow parts of the face that have volume loss. Dermal fillers are generally made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, adding volume to the hollow areas in the lower face. Botox on the other hand is the name of the first injectable botulinum toxin other names for injectables are Xeomin and Dysport. It is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles.
What is most popular about these treatments is like PRP, botox, and fillers they are walk-in walk-out procedures. So unlike going under the knife, it’s something you can do at lunchtime, with minimal downtime. And best of all the results show over time, so no one will notice, but they’ll be left thinking, geeze you’re looking great.
