Vampire Facial And Its Benefits

Vampire Facial And Its Benefits | Enchanted Medical Aesthetics

The Vampire Facial has become increasingly popular recently due to its benefits in improving skin textures, repairing the skin, smoothing wrinkles, and reducing dark spots. It doesn’t leave the skin shriveled or dull. Instead, it plumps, hydrates, and nourishes our skin using the person’s own blood. It is also known as the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP Facial), a vampire facial that combines microneedling with the application of Platelet-Rich Plasma. The procedure begins to withdraw blood from the patient and then a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), followed by microneedling treatment. Afterwhich, the PRP is then applied to the skin for deeper penetration and optimal results during the treatment.

What Are The Benefits Of Vampire Facial?

There are so many options, from skin resurfacing to injectable fillers and a PRP facial to reduce the signs of aging and improve skin’s appearance and health. Each choice has benefits, depending on the aesthetic goals. Here are the benefits of Vampire facial:

  • It helps improve the skin texture. Not only that microneedling helps boost collagen production, but it also leads to firmer skin and fewer visible lines. On the other hand, the PRP further stimulates the production of collagen while it speeds up cell turnover for less visible dark spots and dullness.
  • It’s generally safe. PRP facials use the person’s own blood, which means allergic reactions are not possible in this procedure and the risk of infection.
  • It requires little downtime: Since it is a minimally invasive treatment, the vampire facial has little to no recovery time. In fact, patients can get back to their usual activities pretty much right after treatment. The provider will also give aftercare instructions to improve results and avoid complications.
  • It is performed in-office: The vampire facial is a relatively quick treatment consisting of two steps, which take about 30 minutes each.
  • Relatively pain-free: The patient may only feel a slight pinch during the blood draw and a pricking sensation as the needles move across the skin, but the PRP facial is relatively pain-free. The provider will apply a numbing ointment to the face before starting the procedure to make it more tolerable.

What To Expect During A Vampire Face Procedure?

The procedure will start with the application of a topical numbing agent all over the skin administered by the provider. The effect of the numbing agent will take about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the lab technician draws about 10ml to 15ml of the blood from the forearm and processes it in a centrifugal machine.

When the PRP serum is extracted and prepared for injection, clients will be ready for the Vampire facial. The doctor will work on one section of the skin at a time, place drops of the PRP serum on the skin, and run the MicroPen over the targeted area, allowing it to penetrate the skin. Massaging the serum gently into the skin might be needed.

Next, the doctor covers the entire face and may adjust the length of the needles according to the target areas like lines, wrinkles, creases, and any acne scars. A minor amount of bleeding from microneedling might occur, which is normal.

What Is The Recovery Time?

The Vampire facial session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes. At the end of the session, the face will have an organic mask made with blood and the straw-colored PRP serum. For best results, the dermatologist will ask to leave the mask on until the following day. That way, it allows the PRP serum to work on the skin to rejuvenate it.

Should one opt for only conventional microneedling treatments, the skin may appear red and tender for 5 to 7 days. In addition, doctors will generally provide aftercare instruction, such as avoiding sun exposure, pollution, alcohol-based products, gentle cleanser, artificial fragrances, and exfoliants for at least 72 hours post-procedure. However, doctors can speed up the healing and reduce the downtime to 24 hours by combining the treatment with PRP.

How Long Does Vampire Facial Last?

Typically, dermatologists recommend at least 3 sessions timed at intervals of 4 weeks each. After this time, patients can maintain the positive Vampire facial benefits with a single session taken every six months. Since microneedling and PRP therapy stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, expect to see the complete benefits of collagen and elastin rejuvenation in about 4 to 6 weeks. 

Overall, the recovery time can also depend on the body’s natural healing capabilities. Following the recommended aftercare precautions, healing can be sped up to get better results.

Is Vampire Facial A Safe Procedure?

Vampire facials are safe in general as long as sterilized equipment is used in a clean environment. Its good effect can benefit those with premature wrinkles or hyperpigmentation who want to even their skin tone. However, the only possible side effects following the procedure could include:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Dry skin
  • Bruising
  • Tingling

As with most cosmetic procedures, the unsterilized equipment increases the risk of infection and disease, so do thorough research before choosing the provider. With that said, vampire facials are a noninvasive procedure that a doctor or dermatologist can safely do with the correct equipment and certifications.

Also, a Vampire facial is not suggested to pregnant women, people with rosacea or eczema, and those currently treating acne with Accutane since it makes the skin hypersensitive. The same goes for those experiencing an acne breakout, as the pimples might leave scars. Before the facial, let the doctor know about the complete medical history to give the most accurate treatment advice.
