Vampires are quite the pop culture phenomenon, so it’s no surprise that platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, also known as “vampire facelifts,” are too!
The nickname “vampire facelift” comes from one simple factor: blood. Vampires love it, and so does your skin tissue.
Specifically, the procedure works by injecting your own blood, in the form of plasma-rich platelets, into whichever area you want to rejuvenate or repair—commonly on the face, but sometimes elsewhere too (the procedure treats hair thinning and hair loss, too). This may sound unnerving, but it’s actually a minimally-invasive, straightforward process.
