Is Vampire Facial Treatment Safe and Effective?

It's safe for people of any age to receive a vampire facial, but if you're taking an anticoagulant, have skin cancer, or a blood-related medical condition, such as HIV or hepatitis C, it is not recommended. Despite the risks, vampire facials are generally safe and have been used on thousands of patients around the world. The treatment contains only autologous components (from your own body) and no serious adverse reactions (nodules, bumps, or granulomas) have been reported. However, it is important to note that vampire facials can be dangerous if not administered by a certified dermatologist.

This was evidenced by the heartbreaking situation in New Mexico, where improper disposal of needles and blood samples led to the spread of HIV and hepatitis C. If diseases such as HIV or hepatitis C or B are hidden inside a blood sample and those containers are not properly discarded or disinfected, it is not ruled out that an uninfected person can easily contract infections at some point during their facial treatment. Rossi says patients love vampire facials and other microneedle treatments because, even though you look like a blood-crazed vampire for a day or so, downtime is generally minimal and you return to normal (or even better) in about a week. Both had received “vampire facials,” a cosmetic treatment that involves drawing a person's blood from a vein in the arm, separating the yellowish plasma, and then injecting the pale liquid into their face.

Generally speaking, if a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist gives you a vampire facial treatment, the risk of transmission is very low. That said, if the needles are reused, the equipment is not cleaned, or another patient's blood was used for your vampire facial treatment, you risk contracting an infection. While there is limited research on whether vampire facials are actually effective, one study showed some promise. If you opt for a vampire facial, you'll need a series of treatments with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks to achieve the best results.

Despite insufficient specific research into these facial treatments, studies support the use of platelet-rich plasma for skin rejuvenation. One approach, Plasma Rich Protein (PRP) facial treatment (also known as a “vampire facial”), combines blood plasma and platelets with other rejuvenation techniques. Facials can remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and increase circulation, bringing more nutrients to skin cells. Fillers help restore volume that the face naturally loses with age, while neuromodulators prevent facial muscles from contracting.

Prices vary for a vampire facial depending on where you live and where you get your own treatment done, but don't expect it to be cheap. Vampire facial treatment involves taking a sample of your own blood, removing the plasma (the liquid part of the blood), and then injecting it with needles into the face. The vampire facial stimulates collagen regeneration, allowing the area to tighten and regain its youthful glow.
