Vampire facials use Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP ) along with microneedling. It has been one of the most talked about skin treatments ever since Kim Kardasian approved and promoted the vampire facial technique.
What is Vampire facial?
Vampire Facial is a non-invasive and non surgical treatment to naturally rejuvenate your skin. This treatment combines the benefits of PRP and Microneedling to stimulate the body’s processes to enhance the skin.
Vampire facial targets the following skin conditions -
- Acne scars
- Dull and uneven skin complexion
- Impurities due to pollution
- Uneven skin texture
- Reducing the appearance of spider veins and broken capillaries
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
What is the procedure like?
Platelet Rich Plasma ( PRP ) is collected by extracting a tiny amount of blood from the patient’s arm. This collected blood is then purified with a device called centrifuge. The purification helps to separate the plasma from the blood along with other growth factors. When this purified plasma is injected back into the skin, it penetrates the tissues with its beneficial properties and encourages the skin’s healing process. This treatment can be done on the neck, decollete, back abdomen, arms, legs, and hands.

How Safe Is The Procedure?

Microneedling combined with PRP is a safe treatment performed by experienced doctors. It is expected to be apprehensive about this facial because it uses blood. However, PRP is safe and you will only experience a needle’s prick. As your own blood is used in the treatment, it reduces the risks for allergy as well. There is no recovery time associated and you can go back to your normal routine in no time.
