What Is a Vampire Facial? Everything to Know About the Vampire Facial Skin Treatment

You’ve probably seen the pictures on Instagram of a celebrity or influencer with blood splatter on their face. It’s not Halloween makeup; instead, it’s a “vampire facial,” which is one of the newest skin-care treatment trends. Kim Kardashian West and Bar Refaeli, for example, are fans of the facial, which may appear frightening but delivers big results.

So, what exactly is it and how does it work? Don’t be fooled by the name. According to Dr. Adarsh Tripati, the treatment is a “combination of a microdermabrasion followed by the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma).” “The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is made from the serum portion of the blood. Platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which stimulate cell turnover when applied to the skin.”

According to Dr. Adarsh Tripati, director of Sarayu Skin Clinic in Delhi, it’s a facial that essentially uses “your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells.” Red blood cells and serum, which contains our white blood cells and platelets, make up our blood.

What is the general result of the PRP facial?

The texture, quality, and color of your skin will improve after a few weeks. Collagen that has just been formed begins to grow beneath the skin, giving it a glowing, tighter, and fuller appearance.

The quality and texture of the skin improves over time. It can help to rejuvenate the under-eye area, reducing dark circles and sunken eyes and giving your face a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

Smoother skin as a result of the increased collagen production and a more youthful glow as a result of the new blood vessel formation.

How does it work? What is the process for Vampire Facial?

The treatment starts with a venipuncture (blood draw) to obtain the blood. Aside from the first needle pinch, it’s relatively painless, contrary to popular belief. The procedure begins with a blood draw, followed by centrifugation of the blood to isolate the platelets. Just before your PRPs are slathered across your face, you’ll get micro needling or microdermabrasion. This can be done with or without the use of radio frequency. “It sounds gruesome and mysterious, but it’s actually crucial to our growing understanding of skin physiology and advanced techniques for improving skin quality,” says Dr. Adarsh Tripati.

Are you a candidate?

The procedure is ideal for those with “premature wrinkles, high levels of solar damage, or anyone who wants an even tone and fresher appearance to their skin.”

How lasting are the PRP Facelift results?

In most cases, you will notice a difference after just one sitting, but for the best results, 2 to 3 sittings spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are recommended. The effects last on average 6 to 9 months and are unique to each person’s ageing process. After that, it’s suggested that you repeat the procedure once a year to keep the results and slow down the ageing process.
