Everything you need to know about a Vampire Facial

When you first hear the term ‘vampire facial’ how does it come off? Scary? Daunting? Sure, considering it involves one’s face splattered in blood. This might seem odd and scary but maybe you might change your mind if you knew that celebrities were doing it including Kim Kardashian. In addition, it provides massive beneficial results for your skin. So don’t let the name scare you, as this is a guaranteed way to rejuvenate your skin in a unique fashion.

What’s a vampire facial?

So how does a vampire facial work exactly? The procedure is a mixture of micro-needling, which then involves PRP (platelet-rich plasma). The PRP is acquired from the serum part of the blood, which includes platelets. The platelets are equipped with growth factors that contain high levels, so that when it is placed on the skin, it will produce cell turnover. It is important to note that these growth factors provide collagen that contains hydration that is essential. In other words, it’s a facial that makes use of your own blood to lend a hand with supporting the vigorous action of your skin cells. And stimulating collagen and elastin production. Our skin biologically consists of red blood cells and serum that is full of white blood cells and platelets.

What does it involve?

The treatment starts off by drawing blood in order to obtain the blood. But despite what you might think the treatment is actually painless. After drawing the blood the process then involves managing the blood through a centrifuge to separate the platelets. Then activated platelets are injected into the tissue and act as a template to support your own collagen to grow, restore tissue, and therefore tightens and smoothes the skin. It may sound gruesome, but truth be told it is a technique that will help to improve the quality of the skin. In terms of recovery, it will require a few days of leisure before you can get back to your regular routine. The treatment will leave your skin a little red, which is why applying sunscreen after the treatment is important. You are also not advised to wear any makeup for a few days.

Am I a contender?

The best candidates for a vampire facial are those with premature wrinkles, high levels of solar damage or anyone who wants an even tone and fresher appearance to their skin. Best of all, you’ll be happy to know that the procedure is 100 percent safe. This is due to the fact that the treatment is using your own blood from your body and it is being recycled.
