A vampire facial treatment can be a great way to improve the look and feel of your skin. By reintroducing PRP (platelet-rich plasma) into the skin, cell renewal is encouraged, leading to increased collagen and elastin production. This can help reduce wrinkles, scars, and sun damage, giving you a smoother, fuller complexion. The procedure involves drawing some of your own blood, separating the plasma from the blood, and injecting the plasma back into the skin with a microneedle.
After your skin heals, you can expect to have a nice, moist glow for a few weeks. However, the cumulative results will be more noticeable with more treatments. The first few days after your treatment should be kept simple. You've just created wounds that need healing, so any aggressive ingredients like exfoliating acids should be avoided.
For the first 48 hours, it's best to use only a hyaluronic acid serum and a thin layer of petroleum jelly on top if the skin feels dry. Or try a mild, basic, fragrance-free moisturizer and keep your skin makeup free. If the goal is to improve pigment (such as melasma), a dark spot correction cream can be applied after 48-72 hours. It's also important to protect your skin from the sun during the initial healing period.
Avoid exposure as best you can and use plenty of sunscreen and protective clothing when you do go out. Overall, vampire facial treatments are relatively low risk when performed by an experienced doctor or provider with knowledge of PRP treatments. Side effects may include infection, bruising, redness, swelling and tenderness. The vampire facial can be a great alternative if you don't want the expense or downtime of surgery.
It can help reduce fine lines and signs of aging, as well as improve acne scars or skin damage from prolonged sun exposure. Plus, because it uses your own blood instead of artificial substances, there aren't too many precautions you should take. Research suggests that PRP may help stimulate hair growth, reduce pain from osteoarthritis, and treat acute sports injuries. Many people who receive PRP facials may have the impression that their skin care products suddenly work better.
