How Often Should You Get a Vampire Facial?
This type of facial is an innovative way to rejuvenate your skin using your own PRP, the plasma in your own blood. Like micro-needling, this type of facial is going to give you the best results when done between 3 to 6 times. The amount of time you should wait between your facial is going to vary from person to person. Our experts will let you know when to schedule your next facial.
Typically, one session of this type of treatment every 4 weeks is the average. However, this is going to depend on your goals and what is recommended by our experts for you to achieve the best results possible.
There are a variety of benefits when it comes to this type of treatment. Because it harnesses the power of healing from your own plasma, it can diminish the look of many skin imperfections as well as give your skin some boosts.
Collagen Production Boost
This type of treatment is going to boost your natural collagen production which can give you back that youthful glow, diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and overall improve the appearance and texture of your skin. Your skin will feel tighter and the benefits of increased collagen production will only improve over time with this type of treatment.
Better Skin Tone and Texture
Whether you have acne scarring, scars, or other types of imperfections that affect the texture of your skin, this type of facial can help. Over time, the appearance of scars will diminish and you will notice a smoother, more youthful texture to your skin. If you suffer from hyperpigmentation or excessive redness, you will also notice an improvement in the evenness of skin tone over time.
Reduced Signs of Aging
A common reason for this type of treatment is to diminish the look of common signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, a lack of plumpness in the face, and more. This type of facial is going to significantly diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will feel and appear plumper and tighter than it did before treatment. Visible signs of aging will be a thing of the past after this treatment.
If you feel that your skin appears duller than it used to, this facial can help with that too. Because it will improve overall moisture retention over time, your skin will appear more youthful and glowing than it previously did. The collagen boost and other aspects of this treatment will have the overall look of your skin improved drastically and it only improves over time.
What to Expect During Treatment
After your initial consultation with one of our experts, you will come into the office for treatment. Your blood will be drawn and the plasma-rich platelets (PRP), will be separated from your blood. Your skin is then cleansed, ensuring it’s free of any oil or makeup. Then, the micro-needling device will be applied directly to the area you wish to have treated and your own PRP will be applied directly to your skin.
After that, your treatment is complete! It really is that simple. After you are finished with treatment, you are free to go on about your day as you typically would. This treatment is highly effective and is a pretty quick treatment as opposed to other types that are going to give you similar results.
How It Works
The plasma-rich platelets in the blood, also called PRP, promote ultra healing, which essentially heals imperfections in the skin. The micro-needling aspect of this type of treatment ensures that your PRP penetrates the skin and begins the healing process from the inside. This treatment is harnessing your own body’s natural healing!
Everything about this facial is designed to diminish imperfections by healing them rather than just covering them up, unlike other types of treatments that may yield similar results. It is your own PRP that is absorbed back inside your body to promote healing and increase collagen production, which means you won’t have an allergic reaction or “reject” this treatment.
