Vampire Facial Microneedling

The term Vampire Facial is typically used to refer to microneedling with PRP that is applied topically during and after your treatment. Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of a device that has tiny sterilized needles that produce controlled micro-injuries to the skin at a specific depth. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural collagen production

Your body's natural healing process is accelerated with PRP, and as the collagen production increases, your skin regains its natural elasticity, smoothness, firmness, and glow. The secret behind the results of the PRP facial is the growth factors and immune cells that are found in your blood. 

The growth factors stimulate stem cells that are present in the skin, forcing them to generate new and youthful skin. The newly stimulated stem cells increase collagen production, and they lead to the development of new skin cells and tissue. By tricking the face into generating younger tissue from a wound response, PRP facials lead to a natural regenerative effect with minimal downtime and side effects. 

 

Vampire Facial Before and After

Before:

The day before and the day of your treatment ensure that you drink no alcohol and are well hydrated as you must remember that it is your plasma that is going on your face, therefore, the higher quality blood the higher-quality plasma. It will also be much easier for the phlebotomist to extract the blood when you are well hydrated as your blood is almost 90% water.

Prior to the vampire facial treatment, a topical anesthetic will also be applied, known as numbing cream, for approximately 30-40 minutes to ensure that your face is fully numb and does not encounter any pain from the microneedling treatment. 

During:

Once the Vampire facial treatment begins a licensed phlebotomist will carefully extract approximately 16ml of blood (two vials). Once the blood is collected it will be placed in a medical-grade centrifuge for 15-20 minutes. This process allows the blood to separate into different components based on weight and allows for a pure extract of plasma with no red blood cells.

The plasma is then carefully extracted and filtered into a syringe to be applied topically on the skin. A skincare professional will then use the microneedling device to perform the treatment and apply the PRP topically for enhanced results and faster recovery

After:

Once the procedure is finished, a serum and calming Red LED light therapy is applied to help soothe any redness and irritation as well as whatever might be leftover from the plasma. You may also have the option to put on makeup to camouflage any temporary redness 24 hours post-treatment. 

 

Vampire Facial Benefits

1. Restores the Skin

PRP with microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production by thickening and tightening the skin, effectively smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. While it boosts collagen production, it also improves overall skin texture and tone by rebuilding acne scars and reducing pigmentation. It is particularly good for people who suffer from rosacea, acne, or uneven skin tone. 

2. Treats Delicate Areas

Lasers and Chemical peels tend to stay away from delicate areas for safety reasons while the Vampire facial is extremely effective for treating difficult to treat areas, such as the delicate under-eye area which usually shows the first signs of aging. 

3. Safe & All Natural 

PRP uses your own natural elements without the addition of any foreign products. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to get any type of allergic reaction to the product being applied. In addition, because microneedling triggers a natural wound response to tighten the skin it is a safe alternative to injectables. 

4. Long Lasting Results 

Results from PRP take between three to four weeks to appear but are long-lasting, typically lasting 12 to 18 months after an initial series of 3-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. 

 

Vampire Facial PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has grown a lot of attention over the last two decades due to its amazing healing properties. Platelet-rich plasma represents a new approach in regenerative medicine as it obtains plasma from the patient's own blood that contains natural growth factors and other biomolecules necessary for wound healing. But what exactly is plasma and what exactly does it contain? 

Plasma, also known as PRP, appears light yellow and serves as the liquid base for blood. Plasma contains about 90& water and 10% solids such as coagulants, plasma proteins, electrolytes, and immunoglobulins. 

Platelets are the main components of the PRP, which contain more than a thousand different proteins with numerous post-translational outcomes that result in a lot of vital protein-based bioactive factors. These factors include immune system messengers, growth factors, enzymes, and other factors which participate in tissue repair and wound healing.

Another important characteristic of PRP is that it is an autologous product, meaning, it is prepared from the patient's own blood, therefore, it eliminates any concerns about the risk of cross-contamination, disease transmission, or immune/allergic reactions. 

The ability of PRP to provide a huge amount of these vital growth factors and important proteins, which are all key to stimulating the healing process, represents the importance of the vampire PRP facial. 

 

Vampire Facial for Acne Scars

One of the most common skin concerns people have with acne is scarring. As acne heals, it can leave behind scars all across the face if not treated properly. Because these marks do not always respond to topical products, the Vampire facial works way better because it uses plasma-rich platelets and microneedling to stimulate collagen and regenerative properties in your skin.

The Vampire Facial helps to promote wound and tissue healing which is ideal for those suffering from deep acne scars, ones that are not raised. PRP facial treatments work on acne scars because it contains platelets, growth factors, and other components that help to heal injuries after being stimulated with microneedling. Once treated the skin rebuilds the areas affected and acne scars begin to gradually disappear.

It usually takes around three treatments with a 3-4 week waiting period in between. However, this can change based on the severity of your acne scars. The Vampire Facial is a safe and natural way to help treat acne scars while giving you the added benefits of tighter more hydrated youthful skin.

 

Vampire Facial Results

Your face will look more youthful and skin volume will be restored to the areas of your face that needed it. The results of the platelet-rich plasma facial will start to be visible within three weeks of the treatment. The improvements may continue for as long as eight months. 

 

Vampire Facial Recovery Time

Recovery for the vampire facial is relatively minimal. You can go back to resume your simple daily activities as you wish. There may still be some redness and other signs of minor irritation. 

After your treatment simply cleanse and moisturize the skin. If desired, follow with a lightweight foundation to minimize redness. Make sure to avoid alcohol-based products, exfoliants, and oils during the recovery stage as your skin is extremely sensitive. Ensure you apply sunblock as your skin is sensitive and prone to pigmentation from UV rays post-treatment. 

Until your skin has completely healed, avoid vigorous activities that might cause excessive sweating and heat for at least 72 hours as these may cause additional irritation such as swelling or bruising in the skin. 

 

Vampire Facial Risks

The good news is that PRP contains your own blood, so there's little chance of cross-contamination, infection, or serious allergic reaction. Rare, but serious, complications include infection and scarring.

To avoid running into the risk of sun damage or any type of pigmentation ensure you apply sunblock and do not rub or pick at your face during the recovery stages. 

 

Vampire Facial Side Effects

Recovery from microneedling is usually quick. People may experience some soreness and tenderness immediately after the treatment. Bruises and inflammation, including swelling and redness, are the most common side effect and are due to your body's immune response to the treatment. These side effects typically appear immediately after the procedure and clear within four to six days. 

If you have a history of herpes or cold sores, it is also possible that you may have an outbreak from having the vampire facial procedure done as these side effects are your body's immune response. Ensure you tell your provider that you have a history of cold sores.
