Vampire Facials begin with withdrawing a small amount of blood from your arm. Then, the blood is spun in a high-speed centrifuge to separate the Natural Growth Factor Injections from the other elements in the blood.
Platelets play an important part in clotting blood and contain proteins known as growth factors. These growth factors support healing and recovery processes. The concentration of growth factors in these protein-rich platelets provides a diverse array of growth factors that work independently or with other proteins and cells to improve the healing process. In addition, platelets stimulate cell turnover and collagen production.
In about an hour your Vampire Facial will be done, and you will experience little downtime. It is suitable for all skin tones and types, but to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation, providers may not use deep microneedling and will pe-treat patients with darker skin tones.
There is little chance of allergic reactions because natural growth factors come from your blood. However, do know that the treatment is mildly painful, even with numbing cream. You will need several treatments four weeks apart to see the full benefits. Maintenance sessions every six months are also recommended.
Microneedling can cause some long-term damage and scarring, so ensure your provider has training and experience. The Vampire Facial will aid in triggering a wound-healing response that triggers natural collagen production. To further boost skin cell regeneration, the natural growth factors in the serum penetrate the skin through the microchannels created by microneedling. As a result, you will see increased radiance within a day, or your treatment and benefits increase over four to six weeks, and new collagen increases.
