Vampire Facial Treatment in Santa Monica
A what kind of facial?
Yes, a vampire facial.
Don’t worry, it’s totally safe. A highly trained physician must perform a vampire facial treatment on you.
Now that we have your attention, let’s take a look at our complete guide to this type of facial.
What is a vampire facial treatment?
Also known as microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), this facial treatment uses a sample of your own blood, separated into its component parts, and then a dermatologist injects the plasma into your skin using very small needles that prick your skin.
Why is it called a vampire facial?
Because it used blood to heal you, and it can help restore your skin to a younger look. Vampires, though fictional, would consume the blood of others to live forever and stay young.
What can a vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica help with?
Vampire facials, because they use platelet-rich plasma and microneedling, can help with many things that need healing on or near the surface of your skin. They offer non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-medicative treatments to foster healing.
This treatment could work for:
- Fine lines on the face
- Wrinkles on their face
- Acne scars
- Scars from surgery
- Scars from accidents
Why use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help with a facial?
PRP contains regenerative properties. The regeneration happens because your skin sends an immune signal to the brain, and the platelets go to work to restore the affected area. In essence, we try to trigger a restorative action while supplying more of your body’s natural restoration platelets to a very tiny wound.
Who are good candidates for a vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica?
You are a good candidate if you meet the following conditions:
- You are 18 or older.
- You are in good overall health.
- You need a complete skin resurfacing treatment.
- You are not taking blood thinners, aspirin, NAIDs, or blood-thinning supplements like vitamin K or fish oil.
We will discuss your options to decide if you are a good candidate for a vampire facial treatment.
What microneedling instrument do we use for a vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica?
We use the RejuvaPen NXT, one of the top microneedling firms in the United States. These devices are very easy to use, cause very little pain, and will deliver the treatment properly.
We take every precaution with our sterilized equipment.
What should I do to prepare for my vampire facial in Santa Monica?
Take these steps in the 24 hours leading up to your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) microneedling treatment:
- Do not apply Retin-A products to your skin
- Do not take an auto-immune therapy
- Avoid prolonged sun exposure.
- Eat healthy
- Drink plenty of water
Before you arrive, cleanse your face and remove all makeup.
What happens during a vampire facial treatment?
We go through a few steps during this treatment.
- We draw your blood into just one small vial. We will use this blood as part of the treatment.
- Then the sample goes into a centrifuge where the platelets and plasma separate from the rest of the blood sample in the container.
- We clean the area to be treated.
- Our staff applies a numbing agent to the area where the microneedling instrument will go.
- We use the microneedling device, which barely punctures the skin and uses very light pinpricks, to gently deliver your platelet-rich plasma to your skin.
How long does the vampire facial treatment appointment last?
Anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.
What do I do after my vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica?
Go about your normal day. Your skin may feel a little tender and red, but aside from that, you can perform normal activities.
You may want to avoid direct exposure to sunlight and go easy on that part of your face for two to three days.
Because you didn’t receive any medications from the microneedling, all you have to watch out for are any issues from the small puncture wounds.
What are the side effects of a vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica?
The only side effects may come from the bruising and slight swelling due to the small punctures from the microneedling. Redness and skin peeling is completely normal and will take 3-4 days to reside.
You should have few side effects otherwise because there were no medications involved in the vampire facial.
When do I see results from my vampire facial treatment in Santa Monica?
You will see results in as little as 2 weeks but it can take 4-6 treatments to see optimal results.
