Why would you want a Vampire Facial®?
The Vampire Facial® procedure is designed to improve skin tone, texture and reduce fine lines creating younger looking skin that is more plump and glows.
How does the Vampire Facial® work?
Your blood contains amazing properties that heal and repair your tissue. Isn’t your body amazing!
During the procedure your practitioner will draw a vial of your own blood, and spin it down in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma, growth factors and other nutrients from the blood. The vial of platelet rich fibrin matrix looks like a yellowish serum on one side of the vial, and blood on the other. The serum is what creates the magic for your skin.
In the next step your practitioner will create micro-trauma to the skin using a technique called microneedling. The micro-trauma (caused by the microneedling) begins a process in your body called the healing cascade, which alerts your body to start the healing process by repairing the area that has experienced the injury. Your body does this as a natural response to any injury, which is how your body begins to heal after you cut yourself. With the addition of the platelet rich plasma serum, your body’s healing response goes into overdrive by stimulating extra collagen and elastic thus creating new vascularization, adipose tissue, and epithelial cells thus generating amazing looking younger skin.
What’s the Recovery Time?
Patients may notice slight redness to the skin, mild dry skin, or other skin changes over the period of about 5 days. Don’t be alarmed as this is your body recovering and entering the healing process. You should not experience pain, and you can return to work and normal activities right away.
How Long Will The Results Last?
The results of the Vampire Facial® can last a long time, however you may not notice significant changes for a few weeks or more. Generally the healing cascade kicks in around the 3 week mark, and may continue for up to three months. The good news is the final results may last for up to a year.
