Making a Decision on Vampire Facial with PRP

Today Facial treatments are more effective than they used to be in the past. People used to indulge in facials as a luxury rather than a critical self-care. Recently, the facial treatment trend has surged in popularity for both women as well as men. With medical advances in the self-care and cosmetic industry, the PRP facial rejuvenation is more effective and safer now than in the past.

A facial rejuvenation process is a mixed group of various skincare treatments instead of a single skincare treatment. It helps improve the beauty, health, quality, youth, and strength of the patient’s facial skin without applying any expensive or unsafe invasive methods. Facial treatments can range from chemical peels, facial masks, and exfoliation to many other treatments.

Understanding the process of PRP Facial Rejuvenation is very helpful in making the right decision about this process. Many times patients walk into the skincare clinics and have no idea where to begin. Details of the process are presented below to help take the first step in the right direction.

Defining PRP Facial Rejuvenation

A Plasma Platelet Rich Facial, commonly known as the vampire facial, helps the human body draw from its natural energy and heal the body part that needs healing. Human blood comprises four distinct and main components: white blood cells, platelets, red blood cells, and plasma. Before obtaining concentrated platelets in the plasma, the blood is separated from the plasma using a centrifuge machine. A German aesthetics doctor, Dr. Barbara Sturm, is known as the inventor of the “Vampire Facial” that celebrities such as Kim Kardashian are so fond of. Vampire Facial was coined and trademarked by Dr. Charles Runels, a plastic surgeon. The idea of using your own blood is to stimulate a response that causes skin into thinking that it has been damaged and helps tissue regeneration leading to increased collagen production. A vampire facial is basically a nonsurgical PRP procedure done on the face. It is not a facial but a medical procedure, as opposed to a cosmetic one.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is used to increase the collagen production process and decrease recovery time from micro-needling. Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is utilized in many applications for body benefits. The benefits are gained when the skin absorbs the PRP. When used for anti-aging, either treatment spreads the plasma on the top of the patient’s face, or PRP can be injected into the patient’s skin at specific depths as well.

Vampire Facial’s diverse Benefits

1. Collagen Creation

Reduced collagen in the human body leads to aging skin and requires enhanced quality collagen to heal the skin. The body’s collagen creation decreases when the human body reaches the age of 25. Unless the production rate is not stimulated externally, the quantity and quality of the collagen in the body keep declining.

Vampire facial works wonders for patients suffering from wrinkles uneven skin, dry skin, or other skin issues. The quality of the collagen being produced is increased immensely as the result of skin cell trauma.

The skin is healed, and new healthier collagen starts to generate as soon as the patient’s skin is penetrated. Weeks after the vampire facial treatment, the results continue to improve a lot. But a patient should not expect a quick fix, as the quality collagen takes some time to regrow and consequently affect the skin tightening process.

2. Wrinkles and Reduced Fine Lines

With the collagen, new skin cells, elastin formation, and recycling of old skin cells, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced. The reduction leads to naturally tight facial skin with the help of treatment-induced micro-injuries. Cellular turnover is enhanced to treat the common aging signs like wrinkles and lines. Most people pursue vampire facial as a skin rejuvenation treatment for wrinkles and lines.

3. Firmer and Tighter Skin

Before deciding any skin treatment, patients should consult professionals to get an idea about their ideal aesthetic. Collagen acts as a plumping agent for the skin and is necessary to make the skin more firm and tight. Some people might use vampire facial to avoid invasive treatments for re-contouring their cheeks while others use it for plumping their lips. Although lines and wrinkles don’t always appear with increasing age, the skin begins to sag for sure. Aging is the primary reason for thin facial skin, especially around the eyes and cheeks.

4. Retaining Improved Moisture

A severe skin wall also supports moisture retention. It helps to unclog patient’s pores, making the skin way more receptive to moisturizers prescriptions. As the patients skin becomes thicker and stronger from PRP treatments, the deeper layers of the skin will be that much more protected from foreign irritants. Vampire facial effects on pores can be confusing due to the reduced appearance of pores in the treatment. The patient can take advantage of the unclogged pores and reduced pores’ appearance while absorbing prescribed medication for beauty enhancement purposes.

5. Texture and Skin Tone Enhancement

The results of PRP skin rejuvenation treatments are impressive, fast, and quite observable with rapid skin improvement after several vampire facials. The patient can take advantage of PRP for facial rejuvenation, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, scars from traumatic injury, surgical scars, and stretch marks.

6. Painless process

Facial skin is thoroughly and gently cleaned before vampire facial begins to avoid adverse reactions to treatment due to dirt, pollutant, makeup, dust, pollen, or any other material on the skin. After the face is sanitized, a local numbing cream may be applied to the body part intended for treatment, but often it is not required. While the patient may feel the sensation of the micro-needling device, there is not much discomfort in the procedure

7. Quick Treatment

In contrast to the common perceptions, the PRP process is completed in a short time. First, syringes are used to draw the blood. Afterward, it is processed through a centrifuge which takes 12 minutes. The whole process takes 30-45 minutes based on the number of the areas and size the patient is being treated for.

8. Results last longer provides a 16-week program, spaced every two weeks. This 8-treatment program is ideal to boost your collagen levels and maintain a more youthful appearance. Unlike other facials that don’t last too long, PRP facials have long lasting effects on your skin due to the growth factors that help rejuvenate the cells in your skin. That means after your initial 8-treatment program, you can come back for a maintenance treatment once every 2-3 months or so.

9. Downtime Reduction

As everyone wants to look younger, they don’t have time to look any less than their best at all times. Thanks to PRP, the “micro-injuries” generated by the micro-needling are primarily healed as soon as they are inflicted. There is little or no downtime doing PRP in combination with micro-needling so you can go abouts your day after the treatment.

Compatibility for a Vampire Facial

As a native substance, patients’ bodies will not reject the vampire facial or PRP as a foreign agent. PRP uses the blood extracted from the patient’s own body and thus does not cause any allergic reaction. Substances like lotions, anti-aging ointments, and creams, on the other hand, carry many adverse effects based on the factors like patient’s allergies, skin kind, and various other factors. Although many people are not aware, the vampire facial is deemed compatible with almost every patient.


Patients suffering from blood diseases, acute or chronic infections, certain skin diseases, a metastatic disease, or ones who use blood thinners for any clotting condition regularly are not ideal for a vampire facial treatment.

On the other hand, a patient is considered an ideal recipient of the treatment if they suffer from dry skin, acne scars, imbalanced skin, hyperpigmentation, aging, seeking a remedy other than a facelift, and want firmer skin or reduced wrinkles.
