HOW DOES A VAMPIRE FACIAL WORK?

During a Vampire Facial, one of our medical professionals will draw a small amount of your blood from your arm, similar to a routine blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components.


Once the platelets have been separated, the medical professional will use a microneedling device to create tiny punctures on the surface of your skin. 

The microneedling device creates microchannels that allow the platelets to penetrate deeper into the skin, maximizing their effectiveness.


After the microneedling is complete, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is applied to your skin. The PRP is absorbed into your skin through the microchannels, stimulating collagen and elastin production while improving the texture and tone of your skin.

What are the Benefits of a PRP Facial?

  • Improved Skin Texture: Stimulating collagen production can help improve skin texture by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look smoother and more youthful. A similar effect is achieved by reducing the appearance of large pores.
  • Reduced Hyperpigmentation: If you have dark spots or other forms of hyperpigmentation, the growth factors in PRP can help regulate melanin production, leading to a more even skin tone.
  • Firmer, More Supple Skin: Our skin loses elasticity and becomes less firm as we age. A Vampire Facial can help reverse this process by stimulating collagen production, making your skin look healthier and supple.
  • Reduced Acne Scarring: If you have acne scars, a Vampire Facial can help reduce their appearance. The growth factors in PRP can help promote healing and reduce inflammation, leading to smoother, less visible scars.
  • Minimal Downtime: The facial takes just thirty to sixty minutes to complete and, unlike other skin treatments, requires little to no downtime.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A VAMPIRE FACIAL?

The Vampire Facial is generally suitable for individuals interested in improving their skin's appearance without surgery. Candidates for this treatment may have concerns such as:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Acne scarring

However, it is essential to note that PRP facials may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions, such as blood disorders or autoimmune diseases, or those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

VAMPIRE FACIAL RECOVERY AND RESULTS

Patients may experience some redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites immediately after the procedure, but this usually subsides within a few days. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, although avoiding strenuous exercise and direct sunlight for a few days is recommended.

As for results, many patients report seeing an improvement in their skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance within a few weeks of the treatment. The growth factors in the plasma are believed to continually stimulate collagen production, which can progressively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skin's elasticity. Some people also report a brighter, more youthful complexion immediately after the treatment.
