Almost anyone can be a candidate for a Vampire Facial®. PRP facials are especially helpful for individuals with wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. However, those with blood disorders or who need blood thinners should refrain from PRP treatment.
Since the Vampire Facial®/PRP treatment is made of the patient’s own blood, there’s little to no chance for side effects. Some individuals report minor side effects like bruising, swelling, or itching. Usually, these symptoms go away on their own relatively quickly.
Vampire Facial® is virtually painless with no downtime. Most patients report feeling an initial needle pinch. Sometimes patients may experience mild pain after the numbing cream has been applied, but the tenderness is usually confined to more sensitive areas like the mouth.
After a Vampire Facial®, you may start seeing results right away. In most cases, patients notice the most improvement up to three weeks after the PRP treatment. Others may wait up to six months to see the full results. Many patients elect to schedule multiple treatments to achieve the best outcome.
