The Truth About The Vampire Facial

All you need to know about the infamous ‘Vampire Facial’

In the age of Instagram and reality TV stars, it’s no surprise that people are willing to go to the extremes to look good. Remember that infamous “Vampire Facial” made famous by Kim Kardashian? We heard it was painful. We saw a face full of blood. It certainly looked nothing short of a horror story. Of all the facials available, it looks to be the most painful and extreme. However, we’re going to set the record straight about what a Vampire Facial really entails.

So, what is the Vampire Facial?

The Vampire Facial involves using special PRP techniques to rejuvenate the skin and give long term benefits.

PRP stands for platelet-rich-plasma and is found within our blood. The plasma contains growth factors which enables our bodies to heal and regenerate, hence why it is becoming popular within both skin rejuvenation and hair loss.

How does it work?

To begin the procedure, a small amount of your blood is collected (similar to a routine blood test) and placed into a centrifuge. Inside the centrifuge, the blood is separated into; red blood cells, platelet poor plasma, and platelet rich plasma. The PRP (platelet rich plasma) is then injected back into the affected area using a special dermapen or applied topically using a Dermaroller – which involves creating lots of tiny puncture holes in the skin. The PRP stimulates your natural collagen and elastin fibres to promote cell turnover, giving you a completely rejuvenated appearance. The holes help the growth factors and other nutrients get into deeper layers of the skin. A topical anaesthetic can be applied if necessary.

Whilst this may sound extreme, it’s actually a relatively simple procedure and due to it involving using only your own blood, it’s suitable for just about anyone.

The benefits to your skin

Immediately after the procedure, you will notice that your skin is softer to the touch. The nature of the procedure being deep-targeting and the stimulation of your collagen within the skin means that the effects are longer lasting than a standard facial.

Dermatologists across the globe have agreed that the Vampire Facial carries many benefits such as;

  • Reduces acne scarring
  • Reduces pore size
  • Tightens and tones your skin
  • Reduces fine lines & wrinkles
  • Replaces/stimulates collagen & skin volume
  • Reduces the appearance of Rosacea and Hyperpigmentation

So, although Vampire’s may not be real, the benefits that the Vampire Facial has on your skin are! Get into the Halloween spirit and book your Vampire Facial at DrBK!
