As Halloween season arrives, it’s time to indulge in a cosmetic treatment that’s more treat than trick. A Vampire Facial is a cosmetic phenomenon that blends science and beauty to help patients achieve a youthful, glowing appearance.
Known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Vampire Facials are a go-to rejuvenation treatment that has left a spellbinding mark on celebrities worldwide. Discover more about PRP treatment and how it can benefit you below.
What is a Vampire Facial?
A Vampire Facial is a microneedling and platelet-rich plasma treatment. PRP therapy involves using the platelets in your blood to revitalise skin, support wound healing or promote hair growth on the scalp.
A practitioner will draw and place your blood into a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the remaining blood. After this, the PRP is injected into the treatment area using microneedling. These tiny injections trigger your body’s wound-healing process and encourage collagen production, helping to restore the skin.
A Vampire Facial is a form of microneedling but uses your blood to boost more collagen than a traditional treatment.
Do Vampire Facials work?
A Vampire Facial is a practical face, body, and scalp treatment. For the face, PRP helps promote collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.
A Vampire Facial also accelerates your natural healing process when applied to the body. This rejuvenates the skin, enhancing poor skin tone or texture. As a result, this treatment smoothes out stretch marks, scarring and cellulite across the body.
PRP for hair loss is another effective hair regrowth treatment applied to the scalp. A PRP treatment increases blow flow and stimulates hair follicle growth, helping patients with pattern baldness, alopecia, or thinning see hair growth.
Does a Vampire Facial hurt?
Despite its name, a Vampire Facial is nothing to be scared of. You will experience slight discomfort during treatment similar to Dermal Filler and Botox injections. Our practitioners will apply a numbing cream to reduce this pain and finish the facial within 45 minutes.
You may experience skin sensitivity, bruising and swelling for a few days, but the downtime is minimal. Most patients can go to work the next day.
How long do the results last?
Vampire Facial results will emerge after two to three sessions at Omnyia Clinic. The results will last six to twelve months, depending on a patient’s skin quality, genes and lifestyle. In your consultation, we will discuss your goals and devise a personalised treatment plan for maximum results.
As PRP stimulates collagen over time, you will retain your youthful appearance for longer. Your skin will continue to improve and only require a touch-up every so often.
