If you’re looking to get fresher, healthier, and wrinkle-free skin, then you should consider getting a vampire facial.
You’ve probably seen a celebrity talk about this skin treatment that has become popular so quickly. And you may be wondering what it’s all about and whether it really works.
We have been getting questions about its safety, price, credibility and so on…
In this post, we will answer all your questions to help you get a better understanding of this procedure. We will tell you everything you need to know about vampire facials.
What Is It?
Vampire facial is a skin treatment that helps you regain your youthful glow through the help of platelet rich plasma.
It’s essentially a procedure that uses your own blood to help promote healthy skin activity on your face. A safe amount of blood is first taken from you and then slathered back onto your face.
After a treatment, your face will be filled with red spots, as you may have already seen in pictures. It’s nothing to worry about, as it only lasts for 1-2 days depending on how strong the microdermabrasion was on your skin.
Doctors advise to apply sunscreen after this treatment and stay away from makeup.
After seeing pictures of people who got this treatment, you may think it’s painful. But that’s not true.
The process is relatively painless and simple. First, a safe amount of blood is taken from your body. Then the blood goes through a centrifuge to isolate the platelets.
After this, you’ll get micro-needling (aka microdermabrasion) before the PRPS are slathered across your face.
We know it sounds more like a mysterious process rather than a comfortable one. But it’s really about using basic knowledge of physiology of the skin to improve your skin.
Is It Safe?
Yes, it is.
Apart from the first needle pinch, the entire procedure is relatively painless.
And as we’ve mentioned earlier, this treatment basically involves first taking your own blood and then recycling it back to your face. So, it’s completely harmless.
Are You a Candidate?
Do you want to get healthier, fresher skin and reduce wrinkles on your face? If that’s you, then you can benefit a lot from getting a vampire facial.
Even if you want to just tone your skin to look fresher, a vampire facial will do wonders for you.
Another use of this treatment is for people whose skin has suffered from high levels of solar damage. If that’s you, then you should seriously consider getting a vampire facial.
Who Shouldn’t Get a Vampire Facial?
People who have a history of blood diseases, including clotting or bleeding disorders, should stay away from vampire facials and any other PRP treatment for that matter.
How Many Treatment Sessions You Need?
How many treatment sessions you need depends on your skin condition? Some people need several, while others get their desired results from a single session.
But typically, you have to get multiple treatments to get the best results and achieve your ideal skin. If you decide to get multiple treatments, make sure to spread them across your schedule, as the treatments should not be performed more than once a month.
