Vampire Facials: Not as scary as they sound

First of all, let me say that Vampire Facials can be done during the day. That dispels one myth of vampires only at night. Truthfully, though, you may have seen some celebrities on social media having blood splattered over their face. Vampire Facials are a scary sound but with great results.

Why a Vampire Facial?

A Vampire Facial is a treatment that can revitalize a tired-looking face. It also treats scar reduction, correction of sun damage, and minimizing fine lines and pores. Many using this treatment find that their skin is much like it was was when they were much younger.

What is a Vampire Facial?

The treatment is the application of a numbing cream and a combination of microdermabrasion and micro needling followed by applying PRP, platelet-rich plasma, which is derived from the serum portion of the blood containing platelets. Platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which will stimulate cell turnover when applied to the skin. Basically, it’s using your own blood to help promotion healthy skin cells.

It does require a blood draw from the arm. The blood is then put in a centrifuge where the platelets are separated. Other than the needle pinch, it is a painless procedure with a micro needling or microdermabrasion before the PRPs are splattered across the face. A vampire facial is extremely safe as it is your own blood that is used.

What is the Recovery time?

Recovery may take a day or two. The skin will be red like a sunburn and makeup is not recommended. However, the results are dramatic and immediately. Improvements include more volume in the face especially in facial folds and wrinkles. Full gain may take several weeks. Overall, skin will appear more youthful, tighter, clearer with improved tone.

How long does it last?

Vampire Facials take about an hour to perform. The skin renewals and rejuvenation continues for about 3 months after the procedure. Most people enjoy the natural-looking results for at least a year or more.
