VAMPIRE SCAR REPAIR
Vampire scar repair offers new hope for reducing and minimizing unsightly old scars. At Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics, we’re experts with vampire scar repair and other vampire aesthetics treatments.
The older, traditional ways of treating scars include surgical revision, laser therapy and steroid injection. Although these methods are sometimes effective, still, they don’t always yield the hoped-for improvement in appearance.
PRP is the key
Vampire scar repair relies on the power of your blood’s own growth and healing factors in the form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin in your skin. These fibers give skin its firmness and flexibility.
Once activated, the PRP speeds tissue repair, and it also has a strong anti-aging effect. PRP concentrates your platelets to as much as eighteen times their baseline concentration.
PRP and vampire treatments can be especially effective in smoothing and reducing acne scars and pitting.
Elsewhere in medicine, PRP has long been used to treat orthopedic joint injuries and heal tendons or ligaments as well as heal the wounds of burn patients, dental patients and diabetics.
Vampire scar treatment
Vampire scar treatments are most often requested to correct:
- Scars from acne
- Unsightly surgical scars
How does vampire scar treatment work?
First, a small amount of your own blood is drawn. The platelet rich plasma (PRP) is is gathered and centrifuged, and activated by exposure to calcium. The resulting gel-like substance is then injected into the treatment areas using tiny needles.
Once introduced, the PRP immediately stimulates your body’s local stem cells to begin rejuvenating the skin tissues.
Generally, improvements are noticeable within the first three weeks, and the full results are visible in about three months.
Vampire scar repair is virtually pain-free, and there’s no downtime. Best of all, it can reduce unsightly scars and help you have smoother, more youthful-appearing skin.
