The Vampire Facial
What is a Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial is the latest craze in anti aging in office procedures. The Vampire Facial is performed by your plastic surgeon or dermatologist and works to promote cell rejuvenation. During the procedure, the doctor will draw a small amount of blood and place it in a centrifuge. This process will extract the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from the blood which contains high levels of growth factors. The PRP then goes back into your face following a microdermabrasion treatment.
Do Vampire Facials Work? The goal of the vampire facial is to improve the look and feel of your skin by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. PRP treatments are still very new but most people have been reporting very good results. It often takes more than one treatment to achieve your desired results.
How Much Does a Vampire Facial Cost? The price varies but typically can range from $1000-$2000. It may also take more than one treatment to see results.
Does a Vampire Facial Hurt? As gory as the procedure may look, the pain is very minimal. The worst pain would come from the pinch of the needle when drawing the initial blood.
What is the Recovery Like for a Vampire Facial? The recovery is pretty quick and should only take a few days. You will be red at first and you should refrain from applying makeup.
