What's a Vampire Facial? October 10, 2019

What's a Vampire Facial?, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

What better way to rejuvenate your skin than with your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP)? That's the idea behind the vampire facial, which uses your own blood instead of foreign ingredients and harsh chemicals to leave skin soft, smooth, and dewy. If you’re thinking about getting a vampire facial, here’s what you should know.

What Happens During the Procedure?

During a vampire facial, your provider will use a minimally invasive process called microneedling to promote collagen production by puncturing the skin on the face. A small vial of your blood is then run through a centrifuge to separate the cells. The PRP that remains is then applied topically to the skin on your face. For problematic areas, the PRP can also be injected directly into the skin using a small cannula. Although the procedure is virtually painless, you can ask for an analgesia before you start to reduce discomfort.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Applying platelet-rich plasma to the face can smooth fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin. Not only does the microneedling process stimulate collagen production, but the PRP that’s harvested enhances collagen synthesis once applied. Additionally, the procedure can reduce the appearance of scarring and even skin tone. Some patients have also had it stimulate growth in areas where they experienced hair loss.
