The vampire facial is a medical treatment that involves blood which is taken from the body of the patient, just like the way a blood test is performed. A PRP machine is then used to separate the platelets, and the serum and the platelets are then injected into the treatment area of the patient. The vampire treatment is also known as Dracula Therapy. But what does the treatment entail and is it scary?
How the Vampire Facial is performed
A numbing cream is used to numb the face; the process can take approximately 20 minutes. Once the face is numb, blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the blood.
A micro-needle is used in the next step to open up the face channels for plasma rich in nutrients to be injected under the skin A good micro-needle is used to ensure the skin absorbs the plasma..
Lastly, platelet-rich plasma is added to the face which is in the form of a yellow paste. A micro-needle like the Rejuvapen is then used to push the paste into the skin. The depth of the needle can be altered depending on the treatment. For instance, a short needle is used in the region under the eye.Once this process is done, brightening and tightening begin.
The reason as to why they are used is because they have factors that are used to stimulate the production of keratin and collagen. These components are key in smoothening the skin and keeping it firm and healthy.
The purpose of Vampire Facial
If you are not ready to go for botox or filler; Vampire facial is the option for you. The purpose of this procedure is to reduce wrinkles and fine lines that are on your face, to make your smooth look visible and to make your face look younger.
To get the right results, you need to undergo three vampire facials. You don’t have to be scared; this treatment does not have any downtime. When you are undergoing the PRP treatment, your face may appear red because of the needles, but it will go down within 24 hours. Alternatively, you can use makeup if you wish to cover the redness.
There is no place where your face will be covered with blood as people might think. Once the treatment is done, your skin will appear smooth and rejuvenated. Vampire facial has been used over the years to treat musculoskeletal diseases. It is a safe treatment that promotes the natural rejuvenation of the skin, skin augmentation, and bone reconstruction.
As technology advances, cutting-edge PRP devices are now available to make the rehabilitative treatment an aesthetic procedure that is available in a plastic surgeon’s clinic.
Is Vampire Facial scary? I don’t think so. It’s a well-researched treatment that is safely done by surgeons. There is no cause for alarm because of its name. The treatment uses the body’s natural healing property to offer you smooth skin that by itself should bring in the sense of comfort than fear.
