What Is a Vampire Facial?
The vampire facial, despite its edgy name, is a gentle yet effective treatment designed to give your skin a fresh start. This innovative treatment harnesses the power of microneedling and your body’s own personal growth factors to rejuvenate your skin, promoting a complexion that radiates youth and vitality.
The vampire facial is a two-step treatment:
- It begins with microneedling, which creates tiny punctures in your skin to stimulate your body’s healing response.
- The second step involves applying your personal growth factors — powerful proteins obtained from a small sample of your blood — that encourage tissue regeneration and further healing.
What Does a Vampire Facial Do?
The vampire facial stimulates collagen production, which promotes firmer skin and helps smooth out textural irregularities like wrinkles. This treatment also encourages the growth of new skin cells, leading to a more vibrant complexion.
A vampire facial can treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Dark spots and other types of hyperpigmentation
- Acne scars
- Dull complexion
- Enlarged pores
Who Are Good Candidates for a Vampire Facial?
If you’re experiencing signs of aging or skin damage and looking for a natural, minimally invasive treatment, a vampire facial could be the solution. It’s particularly effective for individuals with skin texture and tone concerns seeking more even, smooth and radiant skin. The vampire facial is safe for all skin types and tones, although it might not be suitable for people with active skin infections, those who are pregnant or those with a history of poor wound healing.
Before commencing any treatment, our experienced professionals conduct a thorough skin assessment and take a detailed medical history to ensure that the vampire facial is right for you.
Preparing for Your Vampire Facial
As you gear up for your treatment, here are a few helpful pointers:
- Do not undergo any other facial treatments in the week leading up to your appointment.
- Discontinue use of retinol, topical antibiotics and any harsh or exfoliating products 72 hours prior.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning products for at least 48 hours before your treatment.
- Come in with a clean face — no makeup, please!
Our dedicated team will provide a comprehensive list of pre-treatment instructions to optimize your results.
What to Expect During Your Vampire Facial Procedure
The procedure starts with a quick blood draw. This blood sample is processed to create a serum rich in your personal growth factors.
Facial Cleansing and Numbing
Your face is then thoroughly cleansed, and a topical numbing cream is applied to minimize any potential discomfort.
The microneedling process is carried out using a specialized device that creates microchannels in your skin.
Application of Personal Growth Factors
Next, your personal growth factors are applied to the skin, where they seep into the microchannels created during your microneedling treatment. This process stimulates the natural healing process within your skin, promoting the formation of fresh, rejuvenated skin cells.
Is the Vampire Facial Painful?
While the vampire facial may sound daunting, we assure you that any intimidation is all in the name. From the moment you step into Nouveau MedSpas, we aim to make your vampire facial experience as comfortable as possible.
The microneedling part of the procedure, where tiny needles create micropunctures in the skin, might cause a slight prickling sensation, but it’s typically well tolerated. We apply a topical numbing cream to your face prior to microneedling to desensitize the area for further comfort.
The application of personal growth factors is often described as a soothing, almost spa-like experience. The serum, when applied to your skin, feels cool and refreshing. Some clients compare the feeling to a gentle, moisturizing facial mask. As the growth factors penetrate and work their magic, you might sense a minor tingling, indicative of the rejuvenation process kickstarting at the cellular level. Rest assured, this part of the vampire facial is designed to be both comfortable and deeply nourishing for your skin.
How Many Vampire Facials Do I Need?
The number of vampire facials you’ll need depends on your specific skin concerns and goals. Typically, a series of three to six treatments can provide impressive results for general skin rejuvenation purposes. You may benefit from additional sessions if you’re addressing more specific issues like acne scars, deeper wrinkles or significant sun damage.
During your initial treatment series, your vampire facial treatments should be spaced about four to six weeks apart.
Vampire Facial Recovery: What to Expect
While the vampire facial is minimally invasive, some post-treatment effects are expected. Here’s what you might experience:
- Redness and Swelling: It’s normal for your skin to appear red and feel slightly swollen after the treatment. This typically subsides within 24 to 48 hours.
- Sensitivity: Your skin might feel tender and sensitive to touch. We recommend avoiding any abrasive products and extreme temperatures to give your skin time to heal.
- Peeling: As your skin begins to rejuvenate and repair itself, you might experience some light peeling. This is a normal part of the process, as your skin is shedding old cells and making way for new ones.
Your Nouveau MedSpas specialist will provide detailed aftercare instructions to aid your recovery and maximize the benefits of your treatment. Among these post-procedure recommendations is one that might make you feel a bit vampiric: make like Dracula and sidestep the sunlight. Your fresh new complexion prefers the twilight! In addition, using a gentle cleanser and applying a high-quality, broad-spectrum SPF daily will further shield your revitalized skin from the sun’s harsh rays.
Vampire Facial Results: What to Expect
When Will I See My Results?
Results can be seen as early as one week after your vampire facial treatment when redness has subsided and your skin starts to regenerate. Optimal results are usually seen after four to six weeks as the increased production of collagen and elastin gradually improve your skin’s tone, texture and appearance.
How Long Do Vampire Facial Results Last?
The rejuvenating effects of a vampire facial can last for several months depending on your individual skin conditions and lifestyle.
How Can I Maintain My Results?
We typically recommend getting a vampire facial every four to six months to maintain your glowing skin. This regularity allows your skin to consistently benefit from the treatment’s stimulating effect on collagen production and overall skin renewal.
As always, consult with your skincare professional at Nouveau MedSpas to customize a schedule that will best serve your unique skin needs.
What Does a Vampire Facial Cost?
The cost of a vampire facial can vary depending on the specifics of your treatment plan. During your consultation, we will provide a detailed cost estimate tailored to your unique needs and skincare goals.
