How a Vampire Facial Uses Your Own Blood to Fight Aging
You’ve spent hundreds, maybe thousands, of dollars on skincare products that don’t do much more than plump up your wrinkles for a few minutes. But a new, rehabilitative procedure called the Vampire Facial® doesn’t just plump your wrinkles: It rejuvenates your skin to reduce or eliminate those wrinkles entirely.
The Vampire Facial is a popular aesthetic treatment at Elite Rejuvenation in Marion, Ohio, that refreshes and rebuilds your skin with your own blood. Our team of medical and aesthetics experts, perform this facial treatment to help you look your best at any age.
How do I get a Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial uses your own blood to enhance your skin’s restorative processes. The technique is called platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
A highly trained member of our team draws a small amount of blood from your arm before the treatment begins. The team will take that blood sample and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the different blood products.
The healing platelet cell fragments are then extracted and mixed back with a small amount of plasma, which is the liquid part of your blood. Platelets contain a high concentration of growth factors that promote healing and collagen production in your skin.
This customized material is then injected into areas of your facial skin where wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and other imperfections appear. You can combine a Vampire Facial with SkinPen® or PlasmaPen® microneedling to improve collagen production throughout your entire facial area.
By speeding up your skin’s natural rejuvenation process by supplying additional growth factors that promote healing, PRP results in glowing, smoother, younger-looking skin.
What does a Vampire Facial improve?
When the Elite Rejuvenation team gives you a Vampire Facial, they literally turn back the clock on your skin, erasing signs of aging and minimizing lines and wrinkles. You’ll notice that your skin grows tighter, smoother, and more radiant as the skin cells replenish themselves.
You can use Vampire Facials to erase or improve a variety of facial imperfections, such as:
Acne or acne scars
Aging skin on the neck or décolletage
Based on your needs, our aesthetics team develops a customized facial treatment regimen. We care about your cosmetic concerns and problems, and we’ll use those concerns to form the basis of how we decide which treatments are best for you and how to administer your Vampire Facial.
Your results appear
You can expect your skin to be red or slightly inflamed for a day or two after a Vampire Facial. Allergic reactions are rare since your own blood is used for your PRP facial treatment.
You should see the first results in about three weeks as your body uses the increased growth factors to produce more collagen for healthier skin. Your skin continues to rebuild itself for the next weeks to months for a fresher, smoother, rejuvenated appearance.
