I suppose most of us would be rather taken aback at the thought of using one's own blood to undergo any form of procedure, but when AO clinic offered me (or my skin, for that matter) a chance at rebirth, I immediately jumped at it.
The Vampire Facial (also called PRP or ACR) is pretty intense. It involves extracting about 5ml of blood and spinning it in a machine, until the plasma separates from the blood. Once that's done, the doctor takes the plasma & using a micro needling device, re-injects it into your face. Think of it as tattooing.. your own face.. with your own blood. I find that easier to comprehend.
But lets be more scientific here. The platelets trigger the body’s natural healing process and the plasma draws stem cells to the treatment area to enhance your results.
Don't let that scare you. I would 100% do it again (and withstand the pain, yes.) because of the amazing results it rendered!
I've suffered from large pores and acne scars since my teenage years, and the usage of makeup to cover up the ugly scars didn't really help my skin at all , either.
On to the treatment !
