Microdermal Rolling

Have you heard of the famous Vampire Facial? If you keep up with the Kardashians at all, you probably remember the picture of Kim’s blood-covered face that went viral years ago. That was a Vampire Facial. So what is a Vampire Facial, exactly, and does it actually use blood?

What Is A Vampire Facial?

A Vampire Facial is a type of facial treatment that incorporates platelet-rich plasma (PRP)—a serum made from the client's own blood.

To get it, staff take blood from the client, then place the vial of blood in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins the blood until it separates, isolating the red and white blood cells from the plasma, an amber serum rich in platelets. 

The doctor then reintroduces this PRP serum into the client's skin in two ways: by direct injection or microneedling. (Many treatments include both methods.) The microneedling device opens tiny holes in the skin so that once the plasma is smeared on the face, it penetrates deeply. To minimize discomfort, a numbing cream may be used.

FYI: Vampire Facials also may be known as PRP facials.

Technically, Vampire Facial is a trademarked name, and PRP facial is a generic name (much like Kleenex is a trademarked name, and tissue is a generic name). Although they shouldn’t, people often say Vampire Facial when they mean PRP.

Whether you get an official Vampire Facial or not, it will follow the same steps listed above.
