Having the word ‘vampire’ in a skincare treatment might be a bit off-putting to some folks, but rest assured, it’s just a faddish name — what’s important to know about a vampire facial is that it does involve using your body’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) being microdosed into your face using advanced microneedling.

If you are considering having a vampire PRP facial, then here’s what you need to know to better understand the PRP microneedling procedure and its many skincare benefits!

We have gathered together common questions men and women have about vampire facial treatment to help prepare you for this unique and effective skincare experience!

What You Need To Know About Vampire Facial

How Does Vampire Facial Work?

PRP treatments, like a vampire facial, involve collecting a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge machine to separate out your body’s platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the red blood cells. Once this is complete, the extracted PRP is then reintroduced into your body using advanced microneedling, for instance, during a PRP vampire facial, platelet-rich plasma is deposited into the face using skin-safe microinjections.

Is microneedling the same as vampire facial? These are two very similar treatments indeed! And they share many of the same microneedling skincare benefits, like boosting your skin’s natural collagen production to improve skin tone and texture. However, a vampire facial does involve an onsite blood draw (which is perfectly safe and routine!) to collect your own PRP from your blood. Adding PRP to your microneedling treatment often yields quicker and more visible results (i.e., vampire facial). 

Is PRP The Same As Vampire Facial? If a medical clinic is offering PRP treatments, then it is probably using the same advanced microneedling technique as involved with a vampire facial. PRP and vampire facial are often linked together, but if you are unsure send a message to the medical clinic and ask. If you have any questions about our Este Medical vampire facial, send us a message through our website.

#1 Vampire Facial Question! 

Does a vampire facial hurt? A vampire facial, and microneedling in general, are not considered a hurtful or painful experience. Skin around the lips and eyes are naturally more sensitive, so discomfort may be experienced when these areas are treated.

Our Este Medical skincare experts will do everything necessary to ensure your comfort and relaxation during an Este skincare treatment (e.g., application of a topical numbing cream).

After a vampire facial you may experience some skin redness, swelling, and a tiny amount of skin bruising as the skin is triggered to go into recovery and repair mode, this is considered a normal side effect and should only last a short amount of time (i.e., 12-24 hours). 

Vampire Facial Benefits For Women And Men

Microneedling and PRP advanced microneedling have a multitude of skincare benefits, which include: 

  • Increased skin collagen production
  • Tighter, firmer skin
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved moisture retention 
  • Enhanced skin tone
  • Smoother skin texture 
  • Long lasting results 

Let’s address specific concerns like acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and ageing skin and how PRP vampire facials can help. 

Does vampire facial help acne scars? Yes, platelet-rich plasma therapy is linked to accelerated healing and skin repair.

Does vampire facial help pigmentation? Both regular microneedling and PRP vampire microneedling will help to reduce and fade skin discoloration and dark patches of skin pigmentation. PRP therapy will help even skin tone and brighten your complexion.

Does vampire facial tighten skin? Yes, vampire facials are well known to tighten and tone the skin, as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles. PRP facial treatments help to boost collagen and elastin production, which helps to plump the skin, making it look younger and healthier. Do vampire facials work? If your goal is younger-looking skin, then yes they do work very, very well!

Does A Vampire Facial Really Work?

The demand for PRP hair loss therapy (i.e., mesotherapy hair injections), PRP skincare, and therapeutic PRP body treatments are on the rise. Here’s what to expect from a PRP vampire facial!

How long does vampire facial take? The procedure takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Send us a message to schedule an appointment. There is no downtime with a vampire facial, you can leave the clinic and get on with your day.

How many vampire facial treatments are needed? How many treatments may depend on if a specific skin condition is being targeted like acne, scarring, skin pigmentation, or age spots. We recommended three PRP facial treatments about 4 to 8 weeks apart. After the initial course of treatments, some clients may require maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months in order to maintain desired results.

How long does the vampire facial last? PRP injection results from a vampire facial can last up to 12 to 24 months after the initial treatment course; however, some clients may need regular maintenance treatments. How often vampire facial? That may depend on your skincare and beauty goals. To best answer that question we recommend you have an Este skin assessment to determine how many PRP treatments are needed for the best and most long-lasting results.
