Do you wish there was a way to improve your skin tone and texture without resorting to plastic surgery? If you are increasingly dissatisfied with dull skin that doesn’t appear lively, check out the vampire facial. While it may sound odd, it’s actually one of the best facials you can get for your skin.
So, what is the vampire facial, and how can you benefit from it? Here’s what NYC’s premier med spa has to say about it.
What is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial involves the use of microdermabrasion, followed by the application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP). What makes this revolutionary facial great is the way in which your own blood is used to regenerate your skin and reveal a more youthful and glowing look.
First, we take a sample of your blood and isolate the platelets from the rest of the blood’s content using a centrifuge machine. Platelets are what rush to the site of an injury to promote healing. Next, using a micro-needling device, we make micro-punctures in your skin. Before you get scared – micro-needling is not as painful as you may think! The micro-punctures are so tiny, they are barely visible to the naked eye. However, they open up your skin’s surface so treatments can penetrate and go deep into the layers of skin. Then, we apply the concentrated platelets onto your face. The micro-needling allows for deep absorption into your skin. The “micro-injuries” incurred from the micro-needling and the application of platelets stimulate your healing and rejuvenation, which helps improve the health and appearance of your skin.
So, why is it called a vampire facial? This name comes from the appearance of your face with blood all over it. The concentrated platelets that are applied to your skin are red because they come from your blood. When you get this treatment done, it can look a little funny – which makes it a popular selfie moment! However, rest assured, once the platelets are given time to penetrate your skin, it will be cleaned off. You will walk out of the clinic with clean skin.
Vampire facials are relatively painless and require no numbing creams. The entire process takes about an hour to complete, and the results can last for up to a year. Your skin continues to improve months after undergoing the treatment as the platelets do their magic to heal your skin from within.
