Celebrities like Kim Kardashian are fans of the facial, which might look quite scary, but boasts big-time results. It has been loosely named as Vampire facial by the looks of it but is a very common procedure being done by celebrities all over the globe.
So, what is it and how does it work?
Vampire facial involves two steps. Microdermabrasion (small needles to open pores of skin) and applying PRP. It involves taking out around 10-15 ml of blood and then processing it to get PRP (platelet-rich plasma) that contains high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin helps in improving skin quality.
What is the downtime?
The skin will be reddish after treatment but it usually resolves in two days.
Is it for you?
It is a good treatment for a sun damaged skin to get a rejuvenated look.
How many sessions are needed?
For optimal results multiple treatment sessions might be needed which are generally spaced two months apart.
Is it painful?
Numbing fluid is applied before starting the procedure so most of the patients don’t experience much pain and rarely an analgesic is required after the procedure.
When can I get to see results?
At the end of first week you see the results which keep on improving better with time
