Who is a Candidate for a Vampire Facial?
Because this treatment is completely nonsurgical and utilizes no synthetic medications, harsh chemicals, or lasers, almost anyone can be considered an eligible candidate for a Vampire Facial. Ideal patients for a Vampire Facial treatment are men and women with mild to moderate skin concerns and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and sun damage. Patients with certain blood disorders, a history of keloid scarring, active infections or open skin sores, and pregnant women may not qualify for a Vampire Facial, but our knowledgeable team can help recommend an alternative treatment to safely enhance your complexion.
What Techniques Do We Use For the Vampire Facial?
Microneedling applies tiny needles to create small breakages in the skin. Completely harmless, these invisible punctures stimulate the skin to repair itself, leading to new cell growth. It is particularly effective when combined with nutritional serums. As an extra benefit, your body's own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be administered to the target region to further help cells regenerate. A member of our medical team will take a sample of your blood for the PRP collection, process your platelets and plasma with additional nutrients, and then smooth the mixture over your skin. After the PRP is fully absorbed, we'll clear away the serum and cleanse your skin.
What can I expect after a vampire facial?
Following your microneedling with PRP therapy, you could experience some ordinary effects such as bruising, swelling, and redness. We recommend that you do not wear makeup, cleanse with exfoliating face washes or swim in pools for around 72 hours post-treatment. These activities can expose your treatment area to harsh chemicals and bacteria which may lead to negative side effects. You also need to avoid exposure to the sun or use protective measures when going outside. Full results are generally seen within several weeks as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
Vampire Facial FAQ
Do Vampire Facials hurt?
No, most patients only experience mild discomfort during a Vampire Facial. Drawing blood for the PRP serum is the same as other blood draws, with most feeling a slight pinch.
Are Vampire Facials safe?
Yes, when administered by experienced practitioners like the members of the Altogether You Med Spa team, a Vampire Facial is safe and effective for the majority of patients with little risk of complications.
How long will my Vampire Facial results last?
How long your Vampire Facial results last will depend on the condition of your skin, health, and other factors. Most patients can expect their Vampire Facial results to last about a year.
Will a Vampire Facial restore lost volume?
No, it won't. Vampire Facials stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to improve the health and appearance of your skin. It does not replace volume loss. Dermal fillers may be a better option to replace lost volume. During your consultation, we will listen to your concerns and help you create the perfect treatment program to meet your goals.
