If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to minimize signs of aging, a vampire facial may be the right procedure for you. But what are the benefits of a vampire facial, and how does it work.
What is a vampire facial?
The vampire facial is a facial rejuvenation treatment that combines platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy, and microneedling.
PRP therapy is a procedure in which the patient’s own blood is used to regenerate the skin. Platelets are tiny blood cells that play a crucial role in the formation of clots. They contain a high concentration of growth factors and when they are applied to the skin, they promote cell regeneration.
What Are the Benefits of Vampire Facials?
Vampire facials boost the overall quality of the skin as they:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of scars.
- Improve the texture of the skin.
- Tighten large pores.
- Volumize sunken areas of the face such as the cheeks and midface.
- Rejuvenate the skin beneath the eyes.
- Brighten the complexion.
Getting started with a vampire facial
Numbing cream is applied to the skin and then blood is drawn from the patient’s arm. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells. The resulting PRP solution is applied topically to the face. After this a microneedling device is used to create micro-channels, which will allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin (click here to learn more).
Vampire facials should only be performed by a qualified medical professional.
