Vampire Facial Q & A
What is a Vampire Facial®?
The Vampire Facial is a unique anti-aging treatment that promotes collagen production to improve the tone and texture of your skin. This innovative treatment uses a combination of platelet-rich plasma therapy and microneedling to rejuvenate aging facial skin naturally.
A Vampire Facial has the potential to:
- Improve skin color to a more youthful “rosiness”
- Reduce the appearance of vertical lines around your lips
- Plump up tired or sagging areas of skin
- Diminish acne scars and other skin discolorations
- Create smoother skin
How does the Vampire Facial work?
The unique combination of microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy works to rejuvenate your skin using your platelets and blood, hence the name Vampire Facial. The process triggers your body's natural ability to create glowing, youthful, and firmer skin. The absorption of the PRP triggers the formation of new collagen growth, fatty tissue, and blood vessels. After a short healing period, you have an enhanced skin tone and texture and a younger-looking glow.
First, a member of the New Pain Solutions medical team draws a small amount of blood from your arm, similar to a blood test. Your blood gets mixed in a centrifuge where the platelet-rich plasma separates out from the other blood components.
Next, Dr. Robles uses a microneedling device to puncture minuscule holes in your skin, focusing on the areas most affected by the signs of aging. All these tiny holes, or micro-punctures, stimulate natural collagen production in your skin and enable the tissue to absorb the PRP fully.
During the next step in the procedure, Dr. Robles applies the platelet-rich plasma from your blood directly to the treated area of your face. Your skin absorbs the PRP precisely where you need it most.
How long do the results last?
After your treatment, you may notice an enhanced glow within a few days. Your skin continues to improve in the following weeks, with optimal results appearing about two to three months later.
It’s possible that you may be happy with a single treatment, but for the best results, you may require 2-3 Vampire Facial treatments. Results can last up to two years before you need to schedule another Vampire Facial.*
How safe is the Vampire Facial?
Since the procedure utilizes your blood, it doesn’t involve a foreign substance entering your body. This eliminates the risk of an allergic reaction. It’s important, however, that the procedure is performed by a skilled provider like Dr. Robles.
