As the environment gets more polluted, demanding and stressful, the need for a good, uplifting facial increases. It’s not enough to rely on face scrubs and topical creams alone to keep looking youthful for years to come. Intensive, non-invasive treatments like a vampire facial stimulates skin turnover, repairs damaged tissues and reduces signs of ageing on the face. More and more celebrities are relying on this treatment to replenish their skin and achieve their aesthetic goals.

What is Vampire Facial? 

Vampire facial or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is not really as dangerous as it sounds, although it does involve a bit of blood. It is a non-surgical outpatient cosmetic treatment that uses your own blood to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and mild scars on your face.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Blood is drawn from the arm and spun in a centrifuge that splits the plasma from platelets and red blood cells. The plasma is injected into the face or applied topically or through micro-needling techniques by puncturing the face with fine, tiny needles to promote cell renewal as it seeps into the deeper layers of the skin.

The benefits of boosting collagen production this way are many.


  • It lessens signs of ageing on the face by eliminating wrinkles, fine lines and scars.
  • Refreshes the tired skin from below the eyes.
  • Tightens open pores.
  • Plumps up the cheeks, forehead and areas that begin to show signs of ageing


Vampire facials are safe, provided you get the procedure done through certified professionals. It can remove years from your face without invasive procedures like botox, face lifts or other extensive surgeries. A few sessions may be required to achieve your beauty goals but the treatments are simple and suited for those with busy lives.

Aftercare Following the Treatment

Avoid strenuous activities for a day or two after your treatment. Use the time to rest and relax instead. You could experience some redness and swelling, but avoid washing your face for a few hours or a day after the treatment for the best results. With repeated sessions, you will see your facial skin renewing for about three months after the procedure and lasting for a long time.
