What is a Vampire Facial?

A Vampire Facial is a cosmetic procedure that harnesses the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) combined with microneedling to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. This non-surgical treatment accelerates the skin's natural healing processes, acting to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and improve overall skin texture and tone.

What happens during a Vampire Facial treatment?

What happens during a Vampire Facial treatment?

1. Initial Consultation

Start your vampire facial journey with an initial consultation with a qualified cosmetic practitioner to determine the suitability of a vampire facial for your concerns.

2. Pre-Treatment Preparation

Prior to commencing treatment, your blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test. The drawn blood is then processed to concentrate and extract the platelet rich component. The treatment area is then thoroughly cleansed and topical anaesthetic is applied if required to increase comfort throughout treatment.

3. Throughout Treatment

The PRP is then applied to the skin and the needling treatment commences with a gliding motion across the entire face.

4. Immediately Following Treatment

Immediately following a vampire facial, the skin will be pink/red which can last 24 to 72 hours. The application of PRP throughout treatment can help to reduce the redness associated with the treatment.

5. Treatment Duration

The vampire facial treatment takes approximately an hour and a half including the retrieval of the blood, numbing and the treatment itself.

However, it may not be suitable for everyone. If you have rosacea, or other skin conditions, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be an appropriate candidate for this treatment.

How Long do Vampire Facial Results Last?

The results of a Vampire Facial can be permanent when used for scarring. However, in regard to rejuvenation, it does not stop the ageing process altogether. Lasting results depend  on the individual’s skin condition, age, and lifestyle factors. Most patients like to maintain their results by having maintenance treatments once or twice a year. Additionally, adopting a good skincare routine and avoiding sun exposure can help prolong the results of a Vampire Facial treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Vampire Facial is a form of microneedling treatment which utilises PRP for its additional benefits. At Melbourne Skin & Dermatology, the Dermapen is the microneedling device used during the Vampire Facial treatment. Dermapen is a trusted device and allows medical grade settings to be used. Dermapen microneedling uses a handheld device with tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, which stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture and tone.

Whether a Vampire Facial is worth it depends on your individual skin concerns and goals. A Vampire Facial can be an effective treatment for improving skin texture, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and minimising acne scars and hyperpigmentation while enhancing the skin’s overall health and appearance. However, the results may vary, and it may not be suitable for everyone. It’s best to book a consultation to assess whether this treatment is right for you.

What is the difference between a Vampire Facial and Dermapen Microneedling treatment?

The key distinction between a Vampire Facial and a conventional Dermapen Microneedling treatment lies in the substance infused into the skin. The Vampire Facial uses the patient’s PRP, capitalising on unique growth factors, whilst Dermapen induces mechanical damage to the skin, promoting collagen and elastin synthesis without application of any further active substances. The optimal treatment depends on the targeted skin issue and the desired result. Consultations with our Registered Nurses or Dermal Clinicians can guide you in making an informed decision.
