What You Need To Know ⚡
The Vampire Facial™ was made famous by Kim Kardashian, 🤩 and more recently by Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame—who came to Sperling for his Vampire Facial™ just last month! 💉
Vampire Facials™ are performed by Dr. Sperling herself and take 30-40 minutes to complete. She can't wait to see you! 👩🏼⚕️
If you’ve been noticing age lines, skin dullness, and a generally more tired appearance every time you look in the mirror, you may be in need of a Vampire Facial™. At Sperling Dermatology, we offer this non-surgical facial-rejuvenation option for patients who are interested in restoring a more youthful look.
How Does a Vampire Facial™ Work?
- Loss of facial volume
When the blood is refined into PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin), it can be used to encourage the growth of elastin and collagen proteins, along with new blood vessels and skin cells. These restore the health of the skin.
Because the patient’s own blood is being used as the rejuvenating agent, the treatment is known as an autologous procedure. Autologous procedures lower the chance of allergic reactions and rejection by the body.
The Vampire Facial™ Process
A Vampire Facial™ is a quite simple process compared to surgical facelifts, which require long treatment sessions and periods of uncomfortable recovery time. This treatment only takes around a half hour to forty minutes to perform.
At the start, a sample of the patient’s blood is drawn. This blood is then centrifuged to separate out the platelets and the plasma, two key components for rejuvenation. The resulting platelet-rich plasma may be mixed with hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers for increased benefits. The final product is then gathered in a syringe.
Local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment areas of the face. Once it has taken effect, the treatment serum is injected into the targeted regions, stimulating the revitalization process.
After the Vampire Facial™
Once your Vampire Facial™ is complete, you will be free to return to your normal daily activities immediately without missing a step. You will not need to take any time off from work.
Just like with any injection-based treatment, a small degree of bruising, swelling, and redness may be present around the injection sites. These side-effects will disappear shortly.
Over the next several months, the natural and subtle results of your vampire facelift will become evident. During this time, as a result of the growth factors in the PRP, new elastin, collagen, and blood vessels will be forming in the skin and increasing its health.
The results of a Vampire Facial™ treatment last for about one year on average, and in some patients, they can last for up to two years. After this point, patients may be able to get follow-up treatments in order to preserve their results.
