First made popular by Kim Kardashian, the Vampire facial ultimately tricks the skin into thinking that there has been an injury, therefore, stimulating growth factors which aid new collagen formation.
It’s fantastic at treating fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, lost volume and hydration. It’s also perfect for treating the trickier areas such as under the eye and neck.
Firstly the skin is cleansed and a numbing cream is applied. A vile of your blood is taken and entered into a centrifuge which separates the platelet-rich plasma (aka liquid gold) from the rest of your blood. This plasma is then drizzled over the face whilst derma-pen needling takes place.
The treatment takes one hour in total. Expect your skin to go quite red following the treatment and allow 3-5 days for it to completely heal.
This treatment may seem quite extreme, made more so by the media, however this is not just a trend or fad brought on by celebrity. The Vampire facial is here to stay because the results speak for themselves.
