Blood Facial Also Known as the Vampire Facial

The Blood Facial, also known as the Vampire Facial is a revolutionary new facial treatment to brighten and smooth skin, leaving you looking and feeling fresher and more youthful. The facial involves extracting plasma from the patient’s own blood, and then applying it to the face with the help of a medical micro-needling device.

Watch the video below to see our patient explain the blood facial treatment live.

The facial works by using the body’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a substance that naturally occurs in our blood, and applying it to the skin. PRP contains a concentration of platelets (the smallest and most numerous type of blood cells) that is five to ten times richer than untreated blood.

Usually, the primary function of platelets is to help clot blood when you have a cut or small wound, protecting the area from infection while white blood cells repair the injury. Because of this, platelets also contain growth factors that help to stimulate division of other cells, activate multipotent stem cells (cells that can develop into any kind of tissue) and promote the skin’s natural healing process.

Platelets and PRP have been used for over 20 years in the medical industry, to help promote the healing of sports injuries. Thanks to developments in technology, PRP treatments are now available for use on the skin, facehairbody, and even for intimate treatments.

The Blood facial at Elite Aesthetics in Kent uses PRP in conjunction with skin microneedling to further enhance the effects of PRP. Skin microneedling creates micro-injuries in the skin, allowing the PRP to sink into deeply into the layers of the skin. These micro-injuries also trick the skin into thinking there’s an injury and that the healing process should begin, increasing collagen production and the development of new blood vessels and fatty tissue, assisted by the effects of the PRP. After a few days, the effects of the Blood facial are visible, but continue to improve for up to two or three months, and last from one to two years.

We know this all sounds a bit scary, but the Blood facial is actually a very safe treatment. Since the active ingredient, PRP, is from your own body, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction with a Blood facial.

The Blood facial is used to treat ageing skin by smoothing the skin and reducing the appearance of pigmentation and age spots. Creating a healthy, beautiful and glowing complexion, the Blood facial is loved by celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and model Bar Refaeli, as well as our clients slightly closer to home, across the Dartford, Bexley, Kings Hill, Gravesend, Maidstone and Sevenoaks area.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!

Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.

Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.

A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
