Vampire facial- what is it?

Vampire facial PRP

Vampire facial – what is it? Whilst the term vampire facial sounds utterly terrifying, it is one treatment that A-list celebs like Kourtney Kardashian swear by. However, vampire facials aren’t just reserved for the Hollywood elite, and just may be the key to unlocking a more glowing, radiant, and youthful complexion.

What is a vampire facial

Put simply, vampire Facials are a non-surgical treatment that uses the body’s natural renewal process to manipulate the skin into its natural healing and renewal process. 

It is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment that draws and separates nutrient-rich platelets from your own blood, which is then injected back into you to promote skin repair and renewal.

What Can PRP Treatment Do?

As you age, naturally the skin’s production of collagen and elastin slows down which causes the skin to lose moisture and radiance. 

Collagen and elastin are two of the main foundations for overall skin health, keeping it firm, smooth, and plump. As levels deplete, you may find your skin begins to develop more fine lines and wrinkles. 

Vampire Facials efficiently rejuvenate the structure of the skin by simply stimulating collagen and elastin production within the body. This helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and helps the skin appear more youthful.  

Besides, correcting the signs of ageing, there are several other benefits from a vampire facial, including:

• Treat uneven skin tone

• Brightening of the under-eye area 

• Reduce acne scars

• Reduce pore size

• Increase volume and plumpness

What happens during a vampire facial?

The first step to a vampire facial is extraction. Your clinician will simply draw some of your blood, the same way you would undergo a blood test. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then separated from the blood using a centrifuge – a machine that spins rapidly to split the different components of the blood.

Using a microneedling device, your PRP is then carefully injected into the deeper layers of your skin. Platelets then begin to stimulate the weaker skin cells beneath the surface and encourage them to produce new collagen and elastin. As a result, instantly the skin looks plumper and more radiant, but as the days and weeks go on you will notice a more youthful, brighter complexion  

Overall, the vampire facial takes less than an hour. There is no risk of allergic reactions to a Vampire Facial as the PRP treatment comes from your own body. Vampire Facials are therefore one of the safest cosmetic procedures around. We use the best PRP kits to ensure good quality.

Aftercare following a Vampire Facial?

A vampire facial is a non-surgical procedure so your skin will recover rapidly after treatment. You should be fine to return to work directly after, however, we advise that you avoid touching your face or applying lotions for 48 hours. 

After the procedure, you may experience some slight bruising, tenderness, and swelling for a few hours, but this should clear up within 1–4 days.
