What is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial is the name given to a specific combination of aesthetic treatments: micro-needling and PRP.
Microneedling involves micro-fine needles that pinprick the skin to create microtrauma. Microtrauma spurs the skin to create its own collagen to repair and rebuild the skin. Not only does this process heal the microtrauma, but it improves the skin in the process, revealing a healthy and beautiful complexion.
PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a part of the blood that is high in growth factors and stem cells. Growth factors and stem cells serve the function of triggering collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic production in the dermis – all of the components that make skin healthy.
Many practitioners call the PRP product “liquid gold.” To perform a PRP treatment, a blood sample is taken from the patient’s arm and placed into a specialized centrifuge. The device forms a concentration of PRP. This potent concentration is administered to the skin after microneedling to attract multiple growth factors to the treatment area.
Combining micro-needling and PRP draw growth factors to the deep dermis of the skin which stimulate new elastin, collagen and new cell formation producing a robust younger looking skin. PRP induces much faster collagen and elastin building than would occur with micro-needling alone, resulting in youthful, firm skin.
Vampire Facials can treat a variety of skin issues including: uneven skin tone, fine lines, acne scars, keloid scars, dry skin, age spots, crow’s feet, coarse skin texture, dull skin tone, large pores, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and more! Any of these skin concerns can be addressed on either the face, neck, or chest or any combination of the three!
The Benefits of Vampire Facials
Dramatically Improve Collagen Production
By age 25, your body’s collagen production drops off significantly, and continues to decline for the rest of your life. The microtrauma experienced through the micro-needling encourages the body to stimulate more collagen, which is your body’s best way of turning back the clock.
Fill in lines and wrinkles
One of the top reasons why people love the Vampire Facial is due to its wrinkle reducing benefits. As collagen and cellular turnover increase so does the formation and concentration of elastin which helps the skin to become more bouncy and strong. Because of this new stronger healthy skin, the wrinkles and crepiness smooth out and the skin appears more youthful.
Tighter, plumper skin
Do you feel like your face has lost volume? The collagen and elastin produced during a series of vampire facials will help plump up the skin and give the face a young and healthy look.
Improve benefits from your topical skincare products
If you use moisturizers, prescription creams, or anti-aging serums at home, a vampire facial will open up your pores so that your topicals are even more effective.
Why Choose Be CLINICAL for Vampire Facials
Our Vampire Facial treatments are performed by highly trained providers using the most advanced microneedling and PRP systems on the market. Not all PRP treatments are the same, the quality of the equipment used dictates the concentration of the platelets in the plasma. We only use FDA approved microneedling systems in order to provide the safest most effective treatments.
What is the Vampire Facial Experience Like?
Your Vampire Facial treatment at our San Ramon & San Francisco Bay Area medical spa clinic will begin with a consultation in which you and your provider will determine your aesthetic goals. During this minimally invasive procedure our providers will take a blood sample from your arm and use it to extract the PRP for treatment. Microneedling will be performed and PRP will be needled into the skin and applied post treatment to enhance results. Treatment typically only takes 60 minutes. Numbing cream is available for all Vampire Facial procedures.
What to Expect Post Treatment?
After a Vampire Facial, you should expect to see some mild redness and swelling of the skin, which may require a few days to normalize. Some individuals may see some slight peeling of the skin. The growth factors will work on the skin quickly, stimulating multipotent stem cells and the generation of new tissue. The skin will plump up, thicken, and smooth out lines and scars. The skin becomes tighter, and the texture, color, and tone will improve. Skin will also be softer. The improvements will continue to increase over the course of about 30 days. You will see some results after one vampire facial. Most patients will opt for about 3-6 sessions for stunning skin. As the aging process continues (whether we like it or not), many of our patients opt for maintenance treatments a few times a year.
How Are Vampire Facials Priced?
Vampire Facials at Be CLINICAL are charged per treatment. Every patient is different, but we typically recommend a series of 3 treatments initially to correct any areas of concern with maintenance treatments several times per year. We offer significant savings when purchasing in packages of 3 or more! During a consultation, your provider will have a better idea of how many Vampire Facial treatments will be needed to achieve the desired results.
What Are The Most Common Side Effects?
While a few patients are not candidates for vampire facials, almost any patient who wants to see beautiful, healthy, younger skin can see great results with microneedling + PRP. There is no chance of allergic reaction because the procedure utilizes your own blood.
