Do fine lines and wrinkles have you feeling spooked? With Halloween just around the corner, now might be a fitting time to consider a “vampire facial!” Don’t be scared off by the name; this type of facial simply refers to one that utilizes your body’s own plasma to heal your skin and restore its youthful appearance.
The plasma that’s found in your blood contains special hormones that help to grow new cells. By using a sample of your own blood, you can actually have those hormones injected into the skin on your face. From there, your skin naturally absorbs those cells and proteins, which encourages new growth that can fill in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other areas where aging is evident.
When you have a vampire facial done, a medical team will begin by spreading a layer of plasma that was extracted from your blood sample onto your face. From there, a procedure known as microneedling is performed to help your body absorb those proteins using a series of small punctures from sterile needles.
Many patients report beginning to see signs of skin improvement after just one treatment, though it is recommended that you have at least three treatments done in order to see the best results. Staying hydrated following this procedure is also a great way to maximize your results.
