To put it simply, a Vampire Facial stimulates collagen production in your skin through a combination of microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Stay with me. Microneedling, as you probably already know, is a treatment that involves poking your skin with itty-bitty needles to create "micro-injuries." Sounds barbaric, but these little injuries actually trigger your body's wound-healing process to encourage new collagen production (aka the essence of good skin). The only difference with a Vampire Facial is instead of puncturing your skin with bare needles (like with microneedling), it's punctured with your own blood platelets. Yup. Basically, some blood is drawn from your arm, then spun with a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets that contain your own growth factors—i.e., platelet-rich plasma (PRP). That PRP is then "microneedled" into the skin and applied on top of the micro-wounds to help stimulate your collagen even more. At the Rejuvenation Clinic, we strive to provide the best Vampire Facial Vienna has to offer!
See Results Faster
According to Dr. Carqueville, how long a Vampire Facial takes to heal depends on the needle length and the amount of pressure applied. With the stronger treatments, the healing period could last five to seven days, and for a light refresher, two to three days. Since I was in the hands of a physician I trusted, I felt comfortable with a stronger, more aggressive treatment in hopes that I would see some serious results even faster. So needless to say, my face needed the maximum amount of time to heal: one full week.
More noticeable results
With your Vienna Vampire Facial or PRP microneedling, a light refresher once a quarter or even once a year might be enough for someone younger without major acne scarring. But if you're trying to treat deeper acne scars, you might need a series of three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. "There’s no right or wrong answer, but generally, the cumulative results will be more noticeable with the more treatments you get," Dr. Carqueville says. Your dermatologist will be able to tell you during your consultation how many treatments they think you'll need, so don't stress.
