What Is A Vampire Facial?
The “Vampire” Facial is a nickname, initially made famous by Kim Kardashian, for collagen induction therapy (CIT) through a Micro-needling procedure. It is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure which has many benefits.
How Does It Work?
The procedure begins by drawing a vial of the patient’s own blood. The vial of blood is then processed in order to separate the PRP (platelet-rich plasma) from other blood components. PRP contains growth factors which stimulate the skin to release stem cells. Micro-needling is then used to infuse the PRP into the patient’s skin, essentially tricking the skin into believing that is has been injured and needs to repair itself by producing collagen and growing new, fresh tissue.
What Are The Benefits?
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduces acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scarring.
- Reduces dark spots due to sun damage.
- Reduces pore size.
- Tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin.
- Improves overall skin tone & texture.
- Improves crinkling skin around and under the eyes.
- Restores natural glowing appearance to skin.
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks.
- Improves alopecia (hair loss).
When Are Results Noticeable?
Improved skin tone and texture are noticeable within a week of the procedure. The skin will feel softer and have a fresher, glowing appearance. Skin will continue to repair itself over time and full results will be seen at 12 weeks.
How Long Do The Results Last?
The procedure may be repeated every 4-6 weeks if desired and results typically last for about 1 year.
Is The Procedure Painful?
A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, you may have some bruising that may last for about one week.
