Made famous by Kim Kardashian, vampire facials are one of the cutting-edge treatments designed to fight the signs of aging and deliver a more youthful appearance. A vampire facial or PRP involves using your blood to stimulate collagen production and promote cell turnover. The treatment is actually less scary than it sounds and more effective than you would expect. At Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, Utah we offer Vampire Facials to everyone in the Riverton, South Jordan, Lehi, Draper, Sandy, Salt Lake, and West Valley area.
What is a Vampire Facial?
One of our nurse injectors will draw up a vial of blood from your arm and then spin it with a centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from your red blood cells and white blood cells. The platelets are tiny cells in your blood that can heal damaged blood vessels and stop the bleeding by forming blood clots. Once the platelets are injected into the plasma, the platelet-rich plasma is ready to be applied to your face. For the procedure to work effectively and the platelet-rich plasma to penetrate the deeper layer of your skin, the treatment is combined with a microneedling session.
What are the benefits?
When used for cosmetic purposes, the platelet-rich plasma focuses its attention on stimulating the collagen production process and boosting collagen levels. Since collagen is the foundation of healthy skin, there is no surprise that vampire facials come with tons of benefits, such as:
improved skin texture
reduced lines and wrinkles
brighter skin tone
boost in volume
smoother texture of the skin
improved appearance of acne scars
reduced appearance of pores
When will I see results?
For a vampire facial to be effective, clients usually need a series of treatments 4 to 6 weeks apart. However, as soon as the skin heals, which shouldn’t take longer than a week, you will notice brighter and more firm skin, as well as reduced dark spots and a boost in volume. You can expect to see the full results of the treatment within a few months and enjoy the effects for up to 1 or 2 years, depending on your lifestyle and skincare routine.
