How to “Scare” Away Skin Concerns With a Vampire Facial
There are a lot of different types of procedures available to help reduce skin concerns, such as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven coloration, and sun damage.
While some of these treatments are more invasive, such as surgical procedures that require a lot of time, money, and recovery, there are also other treatments, such as a Vampire Facial, that is minimally invasive, has a fast recovery time, and is more affordable than other options.
A vampire facial is not a frightening procedure – it is a great choice for “scaring away” a wide variety of skin concerns, such as those listed above, plus more!
What is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial is a procedure that uses platelet-rich plasma therapy to help minimize skin concerns and give you a youthful, glowing complexion. The vampire facial uses your own blood’s plasma to help get rid of dark undereye circles, crepey skin, uneven pigmentation, and even scars.
This is a quick procedure that usually only takes roughly thirty minutes per session and has virtually little to no downtime, making it great for lunch breaks or busy afternoons.
What Do Vampire Facials Treat?
Vampire facials can treat many different skin concerns. Some of the most popular concerns that are treated by vampire facials include:
- Sun damage
- Hyperpigmentation or dark spots on skin
- Healed wounds
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Dull skin
- Dark circles
How is a Vampire Facial Performed?
The first thing that is done when you go in for your vampire facial is to have a small sample of your blood drawn. Next, the blood is placed into a centrifuge, which separates the blood and the plasma. The plasma, which is rich in platelets, is then injected into areas of your face to stimulate collagen production and help heal certain areas, giving your complexion an overall youthful glow.
Are Vampire Facials Painful?
Another good part about a vampire facial is the fact that it doesn’t cause very much pain or discomfort at all. A numbing cream is applied to the skin before the plasma is injected, so you are not likely to feel the process. A slight amount of pain or discomfort can occur after the procedure when the numbing cream wears off, but it is not long-lasting at all.
Is a Vampire Facial Right for You?
A vampire facial is a great treatment for anyone who wants to restore dull skin, or for those who want to tackle one or more skin concern listed above. You will receive younger, brighter looking skin with a reduction of lines, wrinkles, and other common skin issues in a fraction of the time of surgical procedures, with basically no downtime!
