 If you’re a skin junkie there’s no doubt you’ve seen this image of Kim Kardashian undergoing what now has become the buzz treatment tagged the Vampire Facial (the technical term being Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment)!

Gruesome looking, yes, but those with a passion for dermal and facial treatments for skin health will find the science of this advanced treatment fascinating. Your own blood (in the form of Platelet rich plasma) is used to rejuvenate facial tissue and help bring back the youthful appearance of your face.

In our new Advanced Diploma of Dermal Science & Therapies 10167NAT program students get to learn in a workshop from the experts about performing the Autologuous Conditioning (Factor4) treatment!

We give you all the facts on this advanced dermal procedure….

The Procedure:
A Vampire Facial is skin rejuvenation using autologous treatments where a patient’s own blood is processed to harness its healing and rejuvenating capacities.

Method:
Skin needling using the MDerma Fractional Dermal-needling system is used in conjunction with FACTOR4.

FACTOR4 is generated by encapsulating venous patient blood in technologically advanced tubing and then the drawn blood is incubated for between 6 and 9 hours exposing the blood to pyrogenic free surfaces eliciting a vigorous and rapid increase in the synthesis of growth factors. Following centrifugation, serum extraction and filtration the serum is portioned and stored in a freezer at -18°C. This serum is then needled into the skin stimulating collagen to treat an ageing skin

 “Factor 4 is a collagen-inducing blood serum treatment that contains four times more growth factors than any existing brand of platelet rich plasma (PRP). The treatment uses the patient’s own blood, and incubates it in a specialised storage system. The surfaces of this tubing are called pyrogenic-free surfaces, which elicit a vigorous and rapid increase in the production of growth factors in the blood platelets. The newly fuelled blood serum is re-injected and/or skin needled to the treatment site, and the high concentrations of growth factors work their magic in stimulating collagen production and skin rejuvenation in the area. Patients have been experiencing unprecedented results when combining Factor 4 with MDerma micro-needling. The micro-channels created with MDerma deliver high concentrations of Factor 4 to the depths its needed most. Patients are seeing improvements in skin tone, texture and luminosity when combining the systems” – via cosbeauty.com.au
