What is a Vampire Facial?

Vampire facial has become very popular in recent years thanks to its ability to minimize the appearance of aging signs. This treatment helps repair your skin, smooth wrinkles, reduce dark spots, and improve your skin’s texture.
Micro-needling for this procedure is similar to microneedling, where derma rollers with tiny needles are used all over the area to allow for small punctures to the skin. These are very small and only go .5-2.5 millimeters.

Understanding a Vampire Facial

A vampire facial, called microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is a cosmetic process involving drawing blood from your arm and then applying it back onto your face.
A vampire facial stimulates the production of collagen in your skin through the combination of microneedling and also (PRP). Microneedling uses short and fine needles to puncture your skin. These needles usually feel like tiny pinpricks and only go skin-deep. The pricks are used to micro injure your skin, prompting it to heal by producing collagen and elastin and allowing the PRP to penetrate deeper.
After micro-needling, the PRP applies on top of your skin. PRP has a considerable concentration of growth factors, which help tissues heal and repair, treating many skin problems.

The Process

Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma must be administered in a medical office or spa. The first step involves drawing blood, which is relatively painless. The blood goes into a centrifuge to separate the platelets and the plasma from the red blood cells.
Before the microneedling process starts, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your face to manage pain or discomfort. After completion of the microneedling step and while the numbing cream is still active, the PRP will be rubbed on your skin. To maximize results, the PRP should remain on your skin for the remainder of the day. You will notice dry, red, and sensitive skin for the first few days after the treatment, like a light sunburn.

Requires little downtime: Vampire facial is a minimally invasive treatment, which means it has little to no recovery time. You can always get back to your daily activities pretty much after the treatment. Your provider will provide details on caring for your skin after the vampire facial to improve results.
