Surgical facelifts can offer dramatic results. However, it is easy to look overdone or fake when undergoing such a delicate and invasive procedure. At Ageless Radiance Medspa in Coquitlam, BC, we are proud to offer PRP Vampire Facials that provide exceptional results without anesthesia or downtime. We believe in helping our clients unlock their natural youthful glow with minimally invasive, effective esthetic treatments. If you have seen the Vampire Facial in the news or on social media, we would be happy to answer your questions and help you better understand the procedure and its many benefits.
What is a Vampire Facial?
The Vampire Facial has become a trendy rejuvenation procedure that maximizes the benefits of two incredible, but minimally invasive techniques. Our Vampire Facial harnesses the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and improves upon its effects by delivering it deeply into the skin’s upper layers through the channels created via microneedling. By combining these two treatments into one comprehensive procedure, we are able to offer incredible anti-aging results without surgery or other invasive measures. Platelet-rich plasma is rich in important growth factors that can improve your body’s ability to make collagen and elastin long-term, and microneedling stimulates your body’s natural healing properties, resulting in immediately plumper, younger-looking skin. A Vampire Facial is not only a social media-worthy treatment, but it offers incredible lift and improvement of skin texture that can have a massively positive impact on your facial appearance.
Is there recovery time required? When can I wash my face?
One of the best things about the PRP Vampire Facial at Ageless Radiance Medspa is that there is virtually no downtime required for recovery. You can return to your normal activities and can even wear makeup immediately following your treatment. You should not wash your face for approximately 4 hours following your session, and you should be extra gentle with your skin as it heals. This mean avoiding abrasive scrubbing and instead choosing gentle facial cleansers for several days following your appointment. Some patients may experience mild swelling or pain and an ice pack or acetaminophen can help reduce any discomfort. Patients who experience these side effects generally only have to deal with them for a few hours or 1-2 days before they dissipate.
How long will my results last for?
The incredible lift and rejuvenating results of your PRP Vampire Facial will be noticeable very soon after your treatment is completed. The microneedling aspect of your procedure will provide immediate plumpness to the face, and the PRP will help to continue the increased production of collagen that will help these results last. Optimum results are typically noticeable within a few short weeks, with long-term benefits can last for approximately 1 year if you continue to take good care of your skin. Of course, you can always repeat your PRP Vampire Facial in order to improve upon or maintain the results you see. The PRP Vampire Facial is an exceptional treatment options because while the results are incredible, they are also entirely natural, relying on your body’s innate ability to heal itself from within and naturally produce important anti-aging substances deep within the skin.
