Some people are turned off by the name, but this beauty procedure is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin. Instead of using chemicals or additives, this treatment relies on your body’s regenerative capabilities giving your skin a natural and powerful boost.
To achieve this, your blood is safely collected before the procedure, and then it is diffused and concentrated to create a healing serum that is unique to you.
The serum is so effective because it’s developed with platelets from your body’s plasma supply. Platelets serve as the body’s natural healing factor. When placed into a beauty serum, you can target where the regeneration occurs.
Once the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) serum is developed, it is applied to your skin through micro-needling. Micro-needling offers its advantages, having been proven to stimulate the production of healthy skin. When combined with the PRP facial serum, you will experience complete skin rejuvenation.
WHAT IS A VAMPIRE FACIAL?
A custom-designed medical procedure that uses Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Rejuvenation Therapy (utilizing your body’s own blood to heal and regenerate new cellular growth). The key difference behind the Vampire Facial, or PRP is that PRP has been used in medical procedures to assist with healing for years, but not until recently was it discovered to have cosmetic benefits as well.
What Are the Procedures?
You can enjoy this treatment in four simple steps.
Serum Development: Because the process uses a personalized serum, your blood must be collected to extract the platelets with a centrifuge. This is a technically advanced process, but it can be completed in 10 minutes.c
Micro-needling: Tiny needles are used to create punctures across the surface of the skin. This may sound daunting, but it is mostly painless. Through these punctures, the PRP serum is injected into the layers of the skin to stimulate natural tightening and collagen production.
Coating the Skin: To heighten the impact of your PRP injections, the serum will also be applied to the skin like a facial scrub. Through this process, the growth factors in the serum activate your body’s natural healing properties to generate more fresh skin production.
Recovery: Recovery is fast and easy, and most people can resume normal activities within a day. For the best results, the look can be maintained with additional beauty treatments. This will keep your skin young and radiant for up to 12 months.
Most people see results within one week of completing the procedure. However, the full effect may not be visible until four weeks later.
What Are the Benefits?
Here are just a few examples of what you can use a Vampire PRP Facial to achieve.
Acne Scars: This treatment is effective because it breaks up uneven pigmentation while encouraging new collagen production. This essentially helps your skin resurface. Scientists have repeatedly documented how effective this treatment is for acne scars and other skin markings. It is even effective for individuals with darker skin tones.
Alopecia: For people who struggle with spots of baldness, there is promising evidence that these treatments could help. Vampire Facials can be included in an effective plan to spark new hair growth. Some people have seen results after just one session.
Sun Damage: The rejuvenation process can also be effective for sun damage. Multiple studies have shown how viable this treatment is for common skin affliction.
Aging: There is bountiful scientific evidence that documents how effective these facials are in restoring elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as giving the skin a youthful glow. Some experts even recommend this procedure over other comparable options like laser skin resurfacing and deep chemical peels because it is just as effective and not nearly as invasive.
Are There Any Side Effects?
One reason this procedure is becoming so popular is that it is not just effective, it’s also very safe. Compared to other beauty treatments, a Vampire PRP Facial has a fast recovery time with minimal side effects.
The most common side effects are minor skin irritations. There may be bruising at the injection site, and you may experience mild burning, dryness or swelling. But most side effects resolve within two days.
Most people can return to work the day after the procedure. This is impressive considering recovery from normal needling procedures is usually a week. However, by adding the PRP serum, the recovery time is drastically reduced while the results are enhanced.
While recovering, limit your exposure to sunlight. Avoid anything harsh and abrasive to minimize any risk of complication or further irritation.
Everyone will respond somewhat differently to the treatment, but the evidence clearly shows that this is one of the safer options for your beauty care.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
Another great thing about this treatment is that the results are enduring. While your results may vary, most people typically see visible results for up to 12 months.
How Often Can You Get This Treatment?
Treatment frequency varies depending on your needs. If you are targeting skin rejuvenation for specific damage, then you may want to schedule up to six sessions. These sessions can take place about once a month.
How Do You Prepare for This Treatment?
Preparation for your facial is easy. Limit your exposure to the sun in the weeks leading up to your appointment, and do not engage in any tanning activities. Be fully hydrated, and do not apply makeup or other moisturizers the day of your procedure.
