VAMPIRE FACIAL

First of all, what is a vampire facial?

A vampire facial is a combination of microneedling and PRP. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from the whole blood after it has been processed by spinning in a centrifuge to remove the red cells. The PRP has a greater concentration of growth factors than the whole blood. And growth factors are what our cells make that can help tissue heal and repair, which means it can help with all sorts of skin issues.

The procedure would be done by Dr. Dekid Plamo and not an actual vampire, so I knew I would be in good hands. Dr. Dekid says that the treatment has become more popular in recent years especially with patients who are looking into more natural ways of rejuvenating their face or body, without using Botox or fillers. It is also used for hair loss.

Before & After Procedure

 

Before the treatment

To prepare, I was told to drink a lot of water the night before (no booze), not have coffee (how dare they) and eat a healthy breakfast in the morning. I also wasn’t allowed to take any kind of aspirin or blood thinners.

During the process

First, they applied numbing cream to my entire face. After 30 minutes or so, I couldn’t feel my face. I’m not usually squeamish when it comes to needles, but it did feel weird to have my blood drawn at a place that wasn’t my regular doctor’s office, and for something other than blood work for a physical. The vial with my blood was then placed in a centrifuge where the plasma gets separated from the red cells.

 

The benefits

Aside from the novelty of having a Dracula-inspired skin treatment done, the benefits of the PRP facial appealed to me. The PRP injections can help stimulate collagen. Combined with microneedling, the treatment can result in scar reduction, correction of sun damage, and minimizing fine lines and pores. And because the PRP is coming out of your own bod, there are no risk of side effects! However, patients who have blood disorders or take blood thinners should skip this type of procedure.
