What is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial gets its nickname due to the red bloody look of this medical skin treatment. A vampire facial is actually a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
During a vampire facial, a mask is made out of your own blood and spread all over your face to rejuvenate your complexion. It can be combined with other therapies like microneedling to improve the skin texture and tone.
It triggers collagen production by stimulating the body’s natural wound healing response. It’s the high amount of growth factors in PRP that help your body heal.
Benefits of a Vampire Facial
Many are opting for a vampire facial due to the many benefits of using your own plasma as a healing agent. This is a good option to plump the skin aside from dermal fillers.
A vampire facial can help:
- Stimulate collagen production
- Encourage elastin production
- Reduce fine lines, folds, wrinkles
- Open pores
- Improve pigmentation
- Improve the overall health of the skin
- Reduce scars, wrinkles, or sun damage
Am I a Candidate for a Vampire Facial?
Before your vampire facial treatment, we recommend a consultation so we can talk with you about your goals. Often, it is helpful to map out a plan for your desires. You may be worried about certain spots, wrinkles, or skin damage while others are looking to prevent the aging process.
Regardless of your concerns, a vampire facial will likely help you achieve your goals. This medical PRP treatment may also be performed with other cosmetic procedures. This is something we can discuss together prior to your facial.
How is a Vampire Facial Performed?
- You will be guided into a clean room and be made comfortable.
- A numbing cream will be applied to your face so your skin will be completely numb.
- Our staff will draw a small amount of blood (about 30 ml) from a vein in your arm.
- Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge machine for about 10 minutes until the plasma separates from the rest of the blood.
- Your provider will take your plasma and inject it all over your face for about 20 minutes.
- We will wipe away any excess blood and help your skin feel rejuvenated.
- Following the facial, we often apply ice to reduce redness, swelling and bruising.
What Can I do After My Vampire Facial?
The facial does not take long, and the recovery is not as gruesome as the vampire facial may first appear. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
You may have some redness and soreness, similar to a sunburn, that may occur immediately following the treatment.
Makeup may be applied the day after the procedure.
What are the Results?
The results of the vampire facial PRP treatment may vary with each individual and multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve desirable results.
It usually takes around two or three weeks after the procedure to start seeing visible improvements in the skin and around four to six weeks to see a marked difference. The results of PRP are not instant like dermal fillers.
Many prefer the results of a vampire facial because they occur gradually and are very natural. The PRP will help your skin’s natural cell production as your skin heals from your vampire facial.
Is a Vampire Facial Worth It?
The cost of a vampire facial will vary based on the specific treatment or procedure done at the time of service. It will also vary if you opt for any additional treatments in addition to the PRP. We can talk with you about payment options and what you can expect to pay for a vampire facial.
Most are very satisfied with the results, opting to implement a vampire facial as part of their routine skin maintenance. There are great benefits to having your blood help rejuvenate your skin and help you get a youthful glow in a natural way.
