What is a vampire facial?
A vampire facial is a treatment that combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling is a procedure that induces the growth of collagen, which keeps your skin supple. It also improves elastin production to keep your skin tight and taut. PRP is a healing substance composed of platelets, growth factors, and liquid plasma from your blood.
The needles used in your vampire facial at Glow Maven Health are extremely fine, and you may not need any anesthesia before the procedure. They create tiny injuries on the surface of your skin that your skin heals on its own.
With the addition of PRP to your microneedling treatment, the healing happens faster, and you might experience more improvements than you would have without it.
What are the benefits of a vampire facial?
A vampire facial refreshes your skin and restores youthful elements of its tone and texture that may have faded or disappeared over time. The treatment improves the turnover rate of your skin cells, meaning younger cells appear quickly while older cells go away faster.
In addition, vampire facials may help to minimize or eliminate:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Large pores
- Sun damage
- Acne scars and other scars
Your rejuvenated skin after a liquid facelift has an improved ability to retain moisture, keeping it smooth on the surface and well hydrated.
How should I take care of my skin after a vampire facial?
Caring for your skin after a vampire facial helps you enjoy your results for as long as possible. While you only need to get a vampire facial once every year or once every two years to keep your skin looking its best, you may be able to extend the results by:
- Wearing sunscreen every day
- Avoiding tanning beds
- Avoiding touching your face for six hours after the procedure
- Rinsing your face but avoiding cleansers after the treatment
- Avoiding exfoliation for at least two weeks
- Using ice packs to decrease swelling
Depending on your skin’s starting point, your provider might suggest getting a series of vampire facials initially. You’ll need fewer vampire facials than you would need traditional microneedling procedures.
