Cosmetic procedures like a facelift can have dramatic anti-aging results, but they can also be quite invasive. If you don’t want the pain or recovery time associated with a surgical procedure, you may want to consider the power of a Vampire Facial®. It may sound scary, but this non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatment can help to refresh your skin and rejuvenate your appearance, helping you to look years younger. Below is more information about the Vampire Facial®, what it does, and whether it might be right for you.
About the Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is a minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to soften fine lines and other signs of aging. PRP is a mixture of platelets and other nutrient-rich growth factors found in your own blood. They are used to stimulate your natural production of collagen and to promote tissue regeneration. It’s often used to promote and speed up healing. The Vampire Facial® tightens, lifts, increases volume and brightens the face and neck area. You’ll be left with firmer and plumper skin, with less sagging.
How It Works
There are two primary steps to the Vampire Facial®. First, your blood will be drawn in order to separate the platelets from the other components. The resulting substance will then be injected into the target areas. Popular areas to receive this treatment include under the eyes, cheeks, and mouth lines. It takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete the procedure, depending on your needs. Results occur gradually. Within the first four weeks, you’ll notice a brighter appearance and more volume to your face. The PRP is working during this entire time to regenerate tissue, increase circulation and stimulate collagen growth. You’ll soon begin to notice some skin tightening, along with improvements to color and tone. Finally, it all comes together with overall improvement to tone, texture, color, lifting and tightening. While it could take months for optimal results to appear, they are long-lasting and natural-looking.
Benefits of a Vampire Facial®
One important benefit is that the ingredients of this facial are your own natural blood components, so there’s little change of an allergic reaction. You won’t be filling your face with chemicals. This treatment provides immediate and long-range benefits, as your skin’s health will improve over time with the collagen-boosting effects. The results look natural because they happen gradually. No one will ask if you’ve had work done. In addition, this minimally-invasive procedure has very little downtime.
