The suction will reduce the bruising expected after the treatment.

Vampire Facelift in Edmonton has got very popular since Kim Kardashian embraced the name and started to advertise it heavily on the Instagram. later one she came in to regret having the treatment as she was pregnant and was not allowed to use the numbing cream. As a result, the platelet-rich plasma treatment was painful.
It is important to understand that it takes time to see results after applying the treatment. Think of PRP as a multivitamin you take, but instead of swallowing it, you apply it on the skin. The instant results you usually see in the picture is due to edema and inflammation after the microneedling. The results are mainly noticed after 2 months and the sessions should be repeated every 6 months if you wish to keep the results.
