How Does a Vampire Facial Work?

Would you like to reduce facial lines and wrinkles but don’t want to undergo surgery?  The vampire facial is a good option.   The vampire facial has become a popular facial rejuvenation treatment in recent years because it’s considered a natural option to botox and fillers.  But how does a vampire facial work?

How Does A Vampire Facial Work?

The vampire facial is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the collagen-boosting benefits of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. 

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy is performed using a small handheld device that is equipped with tiny needles.   The needles create micro-injuries in the skin and the body produces collagen in response to the injuries.

PRP is created by first taking a small sample of blood from the patient and spinning it in a centrifuge at high speed, to isolate the platelets from the rest of the blood.   The plasma contains a high concentration of healing platelets.  PRP therapy is routinely used by athletes to accelerate the healing of muscles, joints, and ligaments (Click here to learn more).   

Microneedling And PRP

When PRP is applied to the micro-channels created by the microneedling device, it activates the skin’s healing properties. This leads to the production of collagen and elastin and promotes tissue repair, resulting in plumper, firmer, younger-looking skin.

The vampire facial is a great weekend treatment.  It can be done on Friday and you can return to work the following Monday, without disrupting your normal routine.  

Benefits Of The Vampire Facial

The vampire facial tightens and smooths the skin, and can be used to treat a variety of skin issues.  It reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and pores, minimizes  acne scars, and improves skin tone and texture.  

There is no risk of side-effects with the vampire facial since PRP uses the patient’s own blood.
