Draw blood in your fight against aging

The latest in treatments to boost youthful, healthy skin are treatments utilizing the benefits of our own blood! This treatment includes the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) taken from your own blood before being infused into your skin with a microneedling or sublative laser treatment. It amplifies these treatments by further stimulating collagen and elastin production, correcting damage from aging and the environment.

During a Vampire Facial®, a small amount of blood is drawn then spun in a centrifuge to stabilize the plasma. This specific method keeps the plasma active and useful throughout the treatment. Once the PRP is prepped, it will be infused into the skin through a microneedle or sublative laser treatment – this is because, for best results, the skin’s barrier must be disrupted to create a pathway for the treatment.

At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics in Denver, CO, we are proud to offer the Vampire Facial as a nonsurgical and minimally invasive way for patients to enjoy tighter, radiant and more youthful skin, with no downtime or recovery needed. Beyond revitalizing the skin on the face, PRP can also be used for hair restoration and other rejuvenating treatments. Contact us today to learn more about our expertise in this effective treatment.

FAQs: Vampire Facial

What are the benefits of a Vampire Facial?

A Vampire Facial with PRP can boost skin cell renewal and initiate collagen and elastin production to help improve a wide variety of skin concerns. This procedure offers many benefits, including:

  • Increases overall collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens loose, saggy skin that lacks elasticity
  • Evens out skin texture
  • Tightens pores
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
  • Improves scarring

Who is a good candidate for a Denver Vampire Facial?

Patients of all ages and skin types who are in good general health are candidates for a Vampire Facial. Ideal patients are those who would like to improve overall skin tone and texture and/or show visible signs of aging.

What happens during a Vampire Facial treatment?

When you come in for your appointment, a numbing cream will be applied and allowed to absorb before the procedure. One of our clinicians will then draw a small sample of blood and place it in our centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood.

After the numbing cream has been allowed to set in, your clinician will remove it and apply a small amount of your PRP to your face. As the microneedling device is passed over the treatment area, it creates tiny micro channels, allowing the PRP to be absorbed deep within the skin to initiate new skin cell production and boost collagen.

Does a Vampire Facial hurt?

Aside from the initial needle prick of your blood being drawn, a Vampire Facial is relatively painless. Before your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied and allowed to absorb into the skin to offset any pain as the microneedling device is passed over the treatment area. Depending on the depth of the needles being used to treat your skin concerns, there may be some slight discomfort, but it is temporary and easily tolerated.

When will I see results from my Vampire Facial?

Your skin will have a noticeable improvement in skin tone, texture and clarity in the immediate days following your Vampire Facial. The most dramatic results, however, will not be seen until several weeks after your treatment as your skin continues to renew itself and produce new collagen.

What are the aftercare procedures for a Vampire Facial?

After your Vampire Facial, your skin will be red and tender, and there may be immediate pinpoint bleeding, all of which typically subsides within 24 hours. For the following days, your skin may feel dry and tight. Peeling and flakiness are normal as your skin is renewing itself from within.

You must avoid the gym, swimming and anything that will make you sweat for at least 24 hours post-treatment. You must also wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your delicate skin from UV damage as it repairs itself. You must also avoid any topical skincare products containing retinoids, AHAs, BHAs or exfoliants for the week following your Vampire Facial.

Are the results from a Vampire Facial permanent?

The results of a Vampire Facial are long-lasting. However, since collagen production declines naturally as we age and our skin is continuously affected by our lifestyle choices and environment, they are not permanent. You may require another Vampire Facial later on or a schedule of regular maintenance treatments to sustain your results.

Who should not get a Vampire Facial?

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking corticosteroid injections or NSAIDS, please be advised that you should not undergo a Vampire Facial. During your consultation, a member of the VITAHL team will go over your medical history to determine if a Vampire Facial is a safe and effective treatment for you.

Is a Vampire Facial safe?

Since a Vampire Facial uses the PRP from your own blood, there are minimal adverse side effects or risks. The treatment is completely safe and sanitary.
