What Is a Vampire Facial Treatment?
Despite what you may have heard, this vampire facial treatment can also be performed on other areas besides the face. It’s a facial that uses the natural platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, that’s already present in the body. This renews skin from the inside out, giving skin a gorgeous glow. After this treatment, the skin will be visibly brighter, smoother, and glowing.
What You Should Do Before and After Treatment
Prior to getting your vampire facial treatment, you should avoid blood thinners for at least a few days leading up to your appointment. Over the counter medications like Ibuprofen, aspirin, and Advil should be avoided. This will ensure that the blood used in your facial yields the best results. Other than that, you can go about your daily skin routine normally.
After you receive your treatment, you should have a fresh pillowcase to sleep on. It’s also recommended that you avoid excessive dust after your treatment and to not engage in exercise that is going to cause excessive sweating. Our professionals will also let you know if there are any other types of activities you should avoid as well as give tips on how to care for your skin.
Our experts will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that you’re taking all the proper steps before and after treatment to make sure that you will get the most out of this type of treatment.
1 to 2 weeks after treatment, you will notice that your skin is becoming tighter and that any fines lines and wrinkles are fading. In addition to that, any acne, scarring, and other skin issues will be significantly diminished. The benefits continue to grow for about 3 months as the natural collagen in your skin rebuilds, providing visible glowing skin.
Your skin will also be much smoother than it was before treatment and other signs of aging will also fade. This type of facial is going to give you younger-looking skin that glows and is free of imperfections. In addition to that, when applied to the scalp, this type of treatment will also promote hair growth, giving you thicker, fuller hair!
It is also beneficial in the breast area as it can work to diminish the signs of aging and give you more round, firmer breasts. On the neck and chest area, it will also eliminate the common signs of aging such as wrinkles and dull skin.
How Vampire Facial Does It Works?
This type of facial is different from traditional ones. The PRP will be harvested directly from your own blood that is drawn from your arm. The vial of that blood is then used to harvest the platelets that are produced by your body. These platelets have the power to repair and they are then injected back into the skin around the target area.
The PRP will work to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out, giving a much more visible result than any other type of facial. The PRP in the blood is very powerful and works to repair any imperfections as well as reduce the visible signs of aging.
What to Expect During Treatment
During treatment, you will have a vial of blood drawn in the same way it is drawn at the doctor’s office. That blood will be used to isolate the PRP. That PRP is then used on the surface of clean skin where a micro-needling device is used. The device will create very small wounds in the skin so that the PRP can penetrate the top layer and begin to transform your skin from the inside.
After that process is completed, the remaining PRP is applied directly to the surface of your skin where it can be fully absorbed. The benefits of this type of facial can last for up to a year! Though the name does sound intimidating, the treatment process itself is not something that is scary at all.

It will help rejuvenate the skin around the breasts, giving them a fuller appearance. It is almost like a mini-breast lift!
