Why Are Vampire Facials In Trend for Skin Rejuvenation?

The cosmetic industry is constantly advancing, and one of the aesthetic skin care services that has become trending in recent times is the Vampire facial. Are you curious to know why vampire facials are in great demand by both celebrities and the normal public? This blog provides details of vampire facials. Read on to explore the myriad of benefits this fascinating treatment offers and make a better, informed decision of choosing vampire facial in Bangalore over other alternatives with expert insights by a dermatologist and anti-ageing expert, Dr. Rasya Dixit. 

What is a Vampire Facial?

A vampire facial is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, involving microneedling with platel-et-rich plas-ma (P-R-P). 

It is an incredibly popular procedure for skin rejuvenating in Bangalore that helps one to enhance their appearance in different ways. This beauty treatment can help to create ageless skin. 

How Does a Vampire Facial Work?

To start with, microneedling uses a special device having multiple, fine needles that are used to puncture the skin. The needles vary in size from 0.5 to 2.5 millimetres and feel like small pinpricks, as they merely penetrate the skin. The needle pricks are intended to "injure" the skin, causing it to heal itself by inducing collagen skin remodelling and further improving the skin’s firmness, fullness, and elasticity. These pricks also help create multiple micro-channels in the skin for better penetration of the P-R-P solution. 

Following the completion of the microneedling procedure, P-R-P solution is topically applied over the punctured skin or injected into the treated skin. P-R-P is derived from the patient’s blood and contains a high concentration of growth factors released by activated blood pla-telets. These growth factors help in natural tissue healing and repair, thus making it effective for treating a wide range of cosmetic skin flaws.

Ideal Candidates for Vampire Facial

The majority of individuals are ideal candidates for vampire facials as P-R-P therapy involves the use of growth factors derived from autologous blood samples. 
However, vampire facial is typically chosen by those who have:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles noticeable on the face, chest, and neck
  • Sun damaged skin 
  • Under-eye dark circles
  • Rough and coarse skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone 
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Dull skin.

The Vampire facial is not meant to be safe for individuals with a history of blood disease, such as bleeding or clotting issues, anaemia, or blood/bone cancers. Those who are taking blood thinning medications or NS-AI-Ds should avoid it both before and after their vampire facial.  

Why Are People Opting for This Procedure?

People who love cutting-edging beauty treatments with less recovery time are now opting for P-R-P facials in Bangalore. Multiple visits are not necessary with vampire facials. The whole procedure can be completed in a single session that will last for an hour.

The Glowing Benefits of the Vampire Facial

Here are some benefits of the vampire facial for the skin:

1. Significantly improved skin texture and tone

The vampire facial results in visibly smooth, supple, and soft skin. Since its mechanism involves cell turnover, new skin cells replace dead skin cells that have rendered the skin lifeless and dull. Aside from rejuvenating the skin, vampire facials are good at removing unwanted pigmentation, old acne spots, and acne scars.

2. Youthful skin

Vampire facials are an unparalleled solution for people seeking ways to remove fine lines and wrinkles and get youthful skin without invasive skin treatments. This facial successfully restores new cells to the skin's surface, making it appear younger and healthier. The plat-elet-rich pl-asma injected into the face delivers natural growth factors to the skin, preventing cell death and increasing cell turnover, thus delaying natural skin ageing.

3. Enhanced fresh collagen synthesis

Collagen is a structural protein fibre found in the skin that helps to keep it firm, tight, plumper, luminous, and beautiful. Furthermore, it promotes skin restoration and healing. Vampire facials include injecting blood into the facial skin to stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen. As a result, after this facial, patients will see and feel a considerable increase in their skin's general health.

4. Improved effectiveness of facial skincare products

The vampire facial helps facial skin care products penetrate the skin more deeply and effectively. This is because the microneedling procedure forms microchannels in the skin before the injection of the P-R-P solution. As a result, after this facial, skin serums and moisturisers work better. This allows an individual to enjoy speedier and more significant skin improvements on their face.

5. Moisturised and hydrated skin

Vampire facelifts help improve skin moisture and nourish the skin of the face. The treated skin becomes more resistant to external factors such as pollution, sun exposure, and others. Furthermore, increased collagen and elastin production also enhance skin suppleness, allowing it to retain more moisture, thereby making the skin plump and refreshing.

What Happens In A Vampire Facial Session?

  1. First, a small amount of the patient's blood is drawn using a sterile syringe and collected in a centrifuge tube. The blood is then centrifuged to separate all of its components, including plat-elets and pla-sma, from the red and white blood cells. After centrifugation, plat-elet-rich pl-asma is collected from the tube and taken into a syringe.
  2. Simultaneously, the patient's face is thoroughly washed, and numbing cream is applied throughout the face to ensure comfort during microneedling. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, a sterile micro-needling device or micro pen is used to pierce the skin, creating micro holes in the skin surface.
  3. Following microneedling, the P-R-P solution is injected or massaged onto the facial skin. The patient's face is kept untouched for the rest of the day to maximise the treatment outcome. For the first few days after the treatment, the treated skin may appear red, dry, and sensitive, comparable to a mild sunburn.
  4. Vampire Facial in Bangalore uses the growth factors that are extracted from patients' blood to activate and recharge the skin. 
  5. This plays an important role in patient safety as there is no risk of an allergic reaction (as no foreign component is used for skin rejuvenation). People who have sensitive skin or weak immune systems can now enjoy this anti-ageing treatment in Bangalore at Dr. Dixit Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic without any worries.

Aftercare For Vampire Facial

  • All individuals who undergo vampire facials will be grateful for the treatment, but only if they take a few precautions thereafter. These are some of the post-treatment guidelines for vampire facials provided by a dermatologist:
  • Avoid touching your face for at least 6 hours after getting a vampire facial done.
  • The day after the facial, wash your face with water but do not use any cleansers. For the next two weeks, avoid exfoliating your skin.
  • Don't massage, scratch, or scrub your face. After rinsing with the P-RP- solution, gently pat it dry.
  • Sleep on your back with the head raised for at least two nights to let the skin heal.
  • Avoid taking any blood thinners and anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Avoid tanning beds and fake tans.
  • Stay away from the sun for 72 hours, and then use sunscreen before going outside to protect your skin from direct sun exposure.
