Have you heard of vampire facials? This minimally invasive treatment can turn back the clock on skin aging with platelet-rich plasma, more commonly known as PRP. It could be just what you’re looking for to achieve a smoother, healthier, and more youthful-looking appearance.
Read on for a complete guide to vampire facials with microneedling to rejuvenate your skin.
What Are The Steps of a Vampire Facial?
The first step of a vampire facial is the application of a topical numbing cream. It’s applied first so that it takes effect by the time your provider uses the microneedling device.
Next, your provider will draw around a small amount of blood from your arm. They’ll place the blood in a centrifuge, which spins the blood rapidly to separate the PRP from the other blood components.
With the PRP prepared, your provider will start to treat your skin with a microneedling device. This device creates tiny, controlled punctures in the skin, which allow for greater absorption of the PRP. The controlled injuries from microneedling also stimulate the skin’s natural repair process, leading to increased production of collagen and elastin.
The last step of the vampire facial is to topically apply the PRP. Your skin may feel tight and slightly swollen after the facial, which can last for around 12 to 24 hours.
The Results of a Vampire Facial with Microneedling
PRP contains a high volume of growth factors, which promote skin tissue regeneration. As your body gradually produces new skin cells, collagen, and elastin after your vampire facial, your skin may appear plumper, smoother, and brighter, with a reduced appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone or texture
