Vampire facial treatment, also known as microneedling with PRP, is a cosmetic procedure that involves drawing blood from the arm, separating platelets, and reapplying them to the face. This procedure has many benefits, including younger-looking skin, and it is only gaining popularity. Vampire facelifts are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which platelets are injected under the skin along with a hyaluronic acid filler. PRP facials are medical procedures, rather than cosmetics.
The medical team first draws a small amount of blood. The procedure is performed by a medical team led by a dermatologist. The plasma is first applied to the face and then a microneedle is performed to create a series of small superficial pores in the cheeks and forehead to help the face absorb proteins from the plasma. Although the term vampire facial is a bit scary, it has no relation to vampires and is called that perhaps because your own blood is used for facial treatment.
You may notice some redness on your face after a vampiric facelift, but the procedure itself is non-invasive and should require minimal downtime. The Vampire Facial uses your own body's healing capacity to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers. The only difference with a vampire facial is that instead of pricking your skin with bare needles (such as microneedles), it is pricked with your own blood platelets. Fillers help restore volume that the face naturally loses with age, while neuromodulators prevent facial muscles from contracting.
Your doctor should specifically tell you what you want you to do before you arrive for your vampire facelift. The Vampire Facial uses its own body tissues and does not contain any animal or synthetic components. A vampire facelift is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure, but it must still be performed by a trained medical professional who has the correct equipment and who has been certified to perform the procedure. The blood facial became famous because of Kim Kardashian, who posted a selfie of herself on Instagram with her face covered in blood after the facial treatment.
The vampire facial stimulates collagen regeneration, allowing the area to tighten and regain the youthful glow you once had. The image, although initially shocking, became a pioneer in anti-aging facials, with several celebrities following their example to make their skin look younger and brighter. Carqueville says the side effects of a vampire facial treatment are usually low, provided it is performed by an experienced doctor or provider who knows about PRP treatments. Dermarolling, on the other hand, is a much gentler treatment than a vampire facial that can be achieved at home (bloodless) with a needle covered roller.
While there is limited research on whether vampire facials are actually effective, one study showed some promise. In Vampire Facial, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be used anywhere on the body to reduce pigmentation, reduce stretch marks, treat wrinkles and lighten scars. Vampire facials contain only autologous components (from your own body) and no serious adverse reactions (nodules, bumps, or granulomas) have been reported.
