Vampire facials aren’t as ominous as the name might suggest. In fact, it is a completely natural procedure using only solutions that are gathered from the patient’s own body. Because it is an autologous treatment, there are few complications involved. Vampire facials have garnered an immense amount of popularity over the past few years due to their amazing success stories being shared on social media.
What does a vampire facial do?
Vampire facials combine microneedling and PRP to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a concentration of blood plasma rich in healing platelets. These platelets are most well-known for their ability to clot blood, however they also release growth factors that stimulate the healing process and increase the production of essential skin proteins, like collagen and elastin. The solution of PRP is derived from the patient’s own supply, and separates the platelet-rich plasma from the platelet-poor plasma in a centrifugation process. After the high speeds of the centrifuge machine isolate the platelets by weight, they are added to plasma to create platelet-rich plasma. This solution rich in growth factors is then administered into the skin with a microneedling device. These devices use dozens of ultra-thin needles to evenly distribute the PRP. The treatment has become more popular in recent years, especially with patients who are looking for a more natural way to rejuvenate their face and body, without the use of Botox or fillers.
Does a vampire facial work?
Yes, vampire facials are effective facial rejuvenation treatments. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, vampire facials tighten the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. It is a safe procedure with very few risks involved, as it uses blood drawn from the patient’s own supply.
Is a vampire facial the same as microneedling?
Vampire facials use a type of microneedling device and is therefore a form of microneedling, however the two terms are not interchangeable and refer to different therapies. Microneedling is only considered a vampire facial when a solution of PRP is being used.
How long does a vampire facial last?
How long the results of a vampire facial will last depends upon a number of factors, including the condition of the skin being treated, how the patient responds to treatment, and how many sessions are included in the treatment. On average, the results from three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart last around 12 to 24 months. Maintenance sessions once every 12 to 24 months can prolong the effects.
