They say beauty is pain, but how about bloody? One of the most fascinating treatments in the skincare market today is the Vampire Facial , which uses your own blood for the treatment.

To help demystify the process of this treatment and help you understand exactly what it involves, here’s everything you need to know about the Vampire Facial.
What Is A Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial combines Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for this innovative treatment. It involves taking samples if your blood and then extracting the plasma from your sample through a centrifuge. Once that’s done, the plasma is reinjecting back into your face through microneedling. Because of the delicate nature of this treatment, it's always performed by a registered nurse.
The secret ingredient to this procedure is the plasma itself, which is rich in platelets which is known to stimulate collagen production and encourage healthy cell activity. When its injected into the face, it tricks the body into thinking there has been an injury, which puts the body into repair mode in order to repair and rejuvenate the skin again. The results? Younger, youthful looking skin and improved texture.
In order to make the session as comfortable as possible, a numbing cream is applied to the face prior to treatment. This helps make the process relatively painless with the exception of a few sensitive areas like the lips.
What Results Can I Expect?
