How A Vampire Facial Uses Your Own Blood To Fight Aging

Woman touching her faceDo you want to minimize the signs of aging? Vampire facials might sound scary, but they’re an effective cosmetic procedure that addresses the signs of aging without the need for surgery. Vampire facials are the latest in minimally invasive treatments, combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma therapy for maximum results.

What Are Vampire Facials?

Vampire facials, or PRP facials, use a solution made from your blood to enhance your body’s collagen production to fill in lines and wrinkles and revitalize skin tone. Sometimes called blood facials, vampire facials may sound intimidating, but they’re safe and effective. Vampire facials reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enhance skin tone and improve moisture retention. The treatment is quick, yet it produces long-lasting results.

Luxe Medical Spa has a staff of highly-trained aestheticians to help you fight aging skin. When you come to us for treatment, we’ll talk with you about your concerns and evaluate your health to make a personalized recommendation for you. 

Vampire facials are a great option for men and women who are in general good health, but who are frustrated with the signs of aging like lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, or uneven skin tone. 

With a procedure that takes just a couple of hours from start to finish, you’ll tap into your body’s natural healing ability to boost collagen production and smooth out those frustrating lines and wrinkles.

Platelet-Rich Plasma & Microneedling

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution that’s made from your blood. It contains a high number of growth factors and proteins that boost your body’s natural healing process. When combined with microneedling, PRP therapy delivers impressive anti-aging results. 

Microneedling is a popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen production. Our aesthetic team uses a roller with many tiny needles to prick the surface of your skin, creating hundreds of controlled injuries. The injuries cause your skin to generate collagen that produces firmer, smoother skin.

Collagen is a natural protein found in the skin that is responsible for skin’s elasticity and volume. As you age, collagen production decreases and your skin develops wrinkles or sags. By enhancing collagen production with microneedling, your skin gets tighter as volume is replaced.

Vampire facials combine microneedling with PRP therapy. After we complete the derma rolling procedure, your skin has many small openings that enhance its ability to absorb the PRP solution. We take a small sample of your blood and put it in a centrifuge that separates the platelet-rich plasma.

Applying the PRP to the surface of your skin after microneedling increases your skin’s ability to absorb the nutrients. The growth factors in the PRP tap into your body’s natural healing ability, generating increased collagen production to maximize your results. 

Vampire Facials Address Signs of Aging

Vampire facials are a cosmetic procedure that has the power to tackle some of the most frustrating signs of aging. Stimulating natural collagen production with microneedling and the highly-concentrated growth factors in your blood’s PRP revitalizes skin and replaces the collagen you’ve lost over the years.

Vampire facials boost collagen growth and help treat the look of:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Scarring
  • Uneven skin tone

Many signs of aging are due to the body’s decreased collagen production. Skin sags and becomes thinner as you age, and collagen isn’t there to add volume and tighten skin. Your blood’s PRP used in vampire facials accelerates collagen production and increases skin volume. The result is reduced wrinkles and younger-looking skin.

A vampire facial gives you firmer, more even skin by boosting collagen production. For the best results, our aesthetic team may recommend a series of sessions to treat your skin. Together, we’ll give you a fresh look and help you fight aging. Book your first appointment today to learn more about vampire facials and find out if it might be right for you.
