Facials have been around for centuries, although the process and substances used have changed throughout the years. We are all familiar with the modern facial, in which a mineralized mask is applied to the face for several minutes. These are commonly used in both day spas and medical spas all across the world. A more recent addition to the facial family are vampire facials, which use PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to instill youthfulness to one’s complexion. Vampire facials have greatly surged in popularity recently due to the success stories and astonishing results being shared across social media.

What does a vampire facial do?

Vampire facials harness the incredible healing power of a patient’s own blood to deliver a youthful burst to their skin. It is not a surgical treatment, nor is it considered invasive. By using the power of PRP (plasma-rich platelets) present in each person’s blood, vampire facials promote healing from within. Microneedling is used to ensure that the PRP is properly absorbed into the skin, which also promotes the natural production of collagen (a process known as neocollagenesis) and can benefit the skin in many ways. After receiving a vampire facial, clients leave with more youthful and glowing skin.

What is a vampire facial?

Also known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, vampire facials are a skincare treatment that promote youthful, radiant and healthy skin. PRP facials are essentially a mask made of a component from the client’s own blood, which is then spread all over their face to rejuvenate their complexion. The procedure starts by safely drawing blood from the client’s arm in a sterile environment. The sample of drawn blood is then spun in a centrifuge machine to isolate the platelet-rich plasma from the platelet-poor plasma. This incredible serum naturally occurs in all human blood and contains a high concentration of growth factors that can be used in a variety of ways.

Am I a candidate for vampire facial?

Candidates for vampire facials include those who:

  • Have crepey skin caused by a lack of moisture
  • Have dynamic wrinkles due to thinning skin
  • Have drooping caused by loss of strength in the subdermal layers of the skin
  • Have superficial lesions and surface scarring
  • Do not have any skin conditions on the face caused by a malignancy (cancerous tumor)
  • Are in good health

What happens during a Vampire Facial?

During a vampire facial, blood is first drawn through the patient’s vein (typically located in the arm). Next, the vials of collected blood are placed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets from the red blood cells and other aspects of blood. After the PRP has been isolated, it is typically used in combination with another treatment, most commonly microneedling, although microdermabrasion and laser resurfacing are also used. These procedures prepare the skin for the PRP to be spread all over it. If not, the treatment would not be nearly as effective. The combination of these procedures further stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines, and accelerate wound healing. Depending on what treatments were used in conjunction with PRP, recovery might take a day or two of downtime. After the treatment, it is common for the treated area to be a bit red, almost like a mild sunburn. Post-procedure sunscreen is highly recommended. However, makeup is discouraged.
