Pure beauty is a reflection of a healthy, balanced inner world and a sign of well-being. An important aspect of this is skin care. Based on this, PURE Medical Aesthetics in Stamford offers a service, Aquagold Microneedling with PRP, aimed at strengthening and improving the health of our skin.
Aquagold facials are designed to improve the texture, tone and transparency of the skin’s surface. Depending on the individual needs, various serums are used, which are injected into the skin. This type of facial treatment is also commonly referred to as a vampire facial or “bloody mask”.
Blood is drawn from the patient and placed in centrifuge which isolates the healing components of the blood, including plasma with growth factors. The substances are then placed or microinfused into the surface of the skin. Celebrities have raised interested in this unusual treatment by posting photos of their treatments on social media. Images of a blood-like mask led to the nickname the “Vampire Facial”, yet the treatment is actually these blood components called platelet-rich plasma, PRP.
According to Emma Robinson, the owner of PURE Medical Aesthetics clinic, an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgical Nursing (ASPSN) and the Society of Plastic Surgery Skin Care Specialists (SPSSCS), specializing in regenerative medicine, this vampire facial procedure has been used based on the use of PRP for about 20 years in the treatment of athletes.
