What is a Vampire Facial?
Vampire Facials combine two popular skincare treatments — microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy — to enhance your appearance by treating lines, large pores, wrinkles, and other skin troubles.
It may sound scary, but we promise there aren’t any fangs involved with a Vampire Facial! This innovative treatment rejuvenates your skin from the inside out by using the platelets found in your blood to stimulate cell and collagen growth.
Here’s a closer look at how the amazing Vampire Facial works!
The power of platelets
Your blood naturally contains platelets, which play an important role in the healing process. They also contain an abundance of growth factors, which we harness to help rejuvenate your skin and erase signs of aging.
Growth factors trigger stem cell and collagen production, which together improve the appearance of your skin by promoting the growth of new skin cells. As your old skin cells shed, they’re replaced by healthy, new skin giving you a naturally younger, fresher, and brighter appearance.
To get these powerful platelets, your provider at Wrinkle Fairy draws a small sample of your blood then separates the platelets using a centrifuge. The result is a concentrated solution five to 10 times richer than what is found in your bloodstream.
The magic of microneedling
Microneedling refers to a process that uses tiny needles to create microchannels in the outer layer of your skin. These superficial microscopic pricks are too small to cause bleeding, but the minuscule wounds they create to the surface of your skin are enough to trigger your body’s natural healing processes.
The process triggers healing signals to increase collagen production, one of the key components in new cell growth. The new skin resurfaces your face, giving you a brighter, firmer complexion.
A match made in heaven
At Wrinkle Fairy, we combine the power of platelets with the magic of microneedling in Vampire Facials. By applying the PRP solution to the microchannels in your skin, the effects of microneedling are augmented, further increasing your body’s collagen production to maximize results.
What’s more? The natural healing properties of platelets accelerate your body’s natural healing processes that microneedling triggers, so you’ll see results faster when the two treatments are combined in a Vampire Facial!
What results can I expect from a Vampire Facial?
The team at Wrinkle Fairy loves Vampire Facials because of the amazing results they provide. For example, after a Vampire Facial, you can expect to see smoother, firmer skin reflected in the mirror. The increased collagen production the treatment provides smooths lines and wrinkles while improving your skin’s elasticity.
Other benefits include:
- Reducing the appearance of sun damage and photoaging
- Minimizing scars and other issues with skin textures
- Improving pigmentation issues, like hyperpigmentation
Plus, the results from your Vampire Facial outlast many other anti-aging treatments. Your body responds to the boost in collagen production by creating more collagen, in a domino effect, giving you younger-looking skin for longer periods of time!
You can get the most of your Vampire Facial by customizing your treatment with other skin and appearance enhancing therapies. Our providers analyze your current skin condition and ask about your goals to recommend a specialized treatment plan that may include other aesthetic treatments, such as:
- Vampire Facelift®
- Botox® injections
- Dermal fillers
- Laser rejuvenation
