The “vampire facial” has received a lot of attention due to a unique name that can conjure up some pretty interesting imagery. However, the truth behind this beauty treatment is that it can help to create ageless skin.

The vampire facial is a procedure that uses the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood to reawaken and leverage your skin’s ability to repair deep wrinkles, blemishes and acne without the need for surgery or invasive beauty treatments. In fact, one of the biggest PRP facial benefits is that you’re using your cells to rejuvenate your skin. Let’s take a look at what’s behind the PRP vampire facial that has made so many headlines for its attention-grabbing name and glow-enhancing results.

The Glowing Benefits of the Vampire Facial

Many people are finding that it’s never been easier to get such transformative results with so little commitment after having a PRP facial done. PRP facial results are often enough to convince people that they want to try out this procedure after seeing the success that is had by friends or colleagues. However, there’s a world of benefits to uncover. Let’s look at the factors that make this a truly extraordinary beauty resource.

The Process

Single-Session Results

Those who love cutting-edging beauty treatments that don’t require a lot of time or recovery are fully getting behind the PRP facial. No cluster visits are necessary with the PRP facial. This procedure can be completed during a single office visit. Your session will only need to last for about an hour.


PRP is a great option for someone who has reservations about using artificial methods for enhancing their skin. The PRP facial uses PRP from your own body to activate and recharge your skin. This is important because it means there is absolutely no risk of an allergic reaction. Many people with sensitive skin or weakened immune systems find peace of mind from knowing that they can enjoy a beauty treatment without worries.

Results That Keep Getting Better

A PRP facial produces immediate results following a one-time session. That means you’ll be able to see a difference in the mirror almost right away. However, it gets better as time goes on. You will also see gradual results in the mirror as the collagen production that’s been stimulated through your platelets begins to increase. The results are added volume and plumpness. It is not uncommon to see skin volume increase by as much as 15 percent.

Natural Results

PRP facial results are natural because the process is natural. Your skin is not being manipulated or altered in any way. The procedure simply revs up your skin’s own forgotten or stagnated ability to increase collagen production. That means that you’ll be producing collagen at levels your skin hasn’t been capable of in years or decades. That also means that your skin may begin to simply resemble the way it looked in years past.

New Growth in Place of Problem Areas

The PRP facial’s core benefit is that it causes your skin to have a rebirth. This can result in a drastic reduction in fine lines and deep wrinkles that are causing your face to show signs of aging. However, your newer, healthier skin will also be able to clear away some of the other problem areas that can affect people of all ages. Vampire facials are effective for treating acne scarring, uneven skin tone and general blotchiness.

Lasting Results

Vampire-facial results are not permanent. However, you can expect long-lasting results. A procedure really does “buy back time” for your skin by slowing down the aging process. Patients find that results can stay visible for anywhere from a few months to a few years. Repeated sessions over time make it possible to maintain your skin’s ability to rejuvenate.

Applying plasma directly allows you to essentially hijack and rewire your skin’s age. Plasma is full of platelets that contain growth factors that act as building blocks for our skin. Activating those platelets is the key to building up the structural proteins that form new blood vessels and create that firmness that we remember from our younger years. The benefits of plasma for anti-aging purposes were discovered after professional athletes had already been using PRP applications to stimulate new cell growth following physical injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions About Vampire Facials

Are you wondering what to expect when booking a PRP facial with micro-needling? This noninvasive procedure doesn’t require any type of extensive preparation on your part. However, it’s important to know what to expect from the process.

How Is a Vampire Facial Done?

When you arrive at the office, a small blood sample will be taken. This sample will be placed in a centrifuge that separates the plasma from the red blood cells. Ultra-thin needles are then used to inject the custom PRP serum just under your skin through a process called micro-needling.

Does a Vampire Facial Hurt?

PRP facial injections are relatively painless. A skin-numbing cream is applied before the application of needles. Most patients find that the entire process can be completed with either no discomfort or minimal discomfort.

Can You Explain What to Expect After Micro-Needling?

The vampire facial technically doesn’t require any downtime. You may find that redness and swelling occur for a few hours following the procedure. This will usually go away within a day. Most patients begin to see results immediately. However, results slowly increase as the skin naturally increases its collage production. Volume can increase by 10 to 15 percent by the time full results are visible.

How to Try the Vampire Facial

Trying PRP injections is as easy as booking an appointment. Only one session is necessary to create the full results offered by this procedure.
