Vampire Facial Treatment at Aesthetic and Wellness Center at St Patrick's

Last August I had the opportunity to try Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or commonly known as Vampire Facial Treatment at Aesthetic and Wellness Center at St Patrick's Clinic under the special care of Dr. Jojie Corpuz Oreta.

Vampire facial is a trendy skin care treatment that involves drawing blood from a client's body, placing it in a centrifuge, then reapplying it to the face, to promote cell renewal.  Vampire Facial is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses your own plasma to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, allowing for the elimination of lines, folds, and wrinkles.

Here are some question I asked Dr. Jojie:

Is PRP risky?

PRP has low risk but you have to identify those providers who are licensed and so who have demonstrated an understanding of the best way to optimize results and minimize risks. Make sure you go to a trusted skin clinic and the procedure must be performed by a dermatologist.
