Vampire Facial Q & A
What is the Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial is an innovative beauty treatment that uses the healing properties in your blood to rejuvenate your skin and revitalize your appearance.
During Vampire Facial, Dr. Altenberg first draws a blood sample from your arm to create the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) needed for your beauty treatment. PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that contains a high concentration of platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells.
He then uses a microneedling tool to create microchannels in your skin’s surface and then applies the PRP serum. Both microneedling and PRP stimulate your skin’s natural healing process by increasing cell turnover and collagen production.
Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin firm and resilient.
What does the Vampire Facial address?
Dr. Altenberg offers the Vampire Facial for facial rejuvenation to address many of the visible signs of aging. These may include:
- Change in skin color due to decrease in blood flow
- Dark undereye circles
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Droopy, saggy skin
- Worn or tired skin
- Scars (acne or trauma)
When it comes to facial rejuvenation, you have many options. However, the Vampire Facial is a more natural alternative to most treatments and provides impressive and long-lasting results.
What happens during a Vampire Facial?
Your Vampire Facial is an in-office beauty treatment. As noted, Dr. Altenberg first creates the PRP for your facial. Then, before your microneedling, he applies a numbing agent to your skin to reduce discomfort.
He uses the microneedling tool to create the microchannels in your skin and applies the PRP to initiate the rejuvenation process. You may notice some redness following your session, but the Vampire Facial requires little to no downtime.
To get the best results, Dr. Altenberg may recommend a series of facials.
What happens after a Vampire Facial?
Dr. Altenberg provides specific instructions on caring for your skin following your Vampire Facial for optimal results. This includes not using makeup for at least two days following your facial. He also recommends you apply sunscreen daily to protect your treated skin.
You should start to notice an improvement in your look soon after your first facial and continued improvements over the next several weeks. Regular Vampire Facials help you maintain your fresh, rejuvenated look.
